Manasseh Hope of Repentance

| 0

This sermon takes a different angle on the hero theme we have been on, and looks at an anti-hero. Manasseh was a bad king in Israel, yet he had a change oh heart near the end. Bob takes a look at this transformation and gives us the limerick “old sin, new sin, red sin, blue sin” to remember his wickedness and the hope that no one is too far from repentance.

Ezekiel Hope of Revival

| 0

The Prophet Ezekiel has a vision that is alarming at first, but reassuring after things are explained to him. In Ezekiel 37, we catch up with Ezekiel in the valley of dry Bones, which relates to the deadness of Israel. Bob unpacks how this vision applies even to our lives and that the prophesy can be seen in action.

Gideon and Obeying God

| 0

Looking in Judges 6, Marvin unpacks the crazy story of Gideon and how he was called by God to destroy the false idols in his land and obey God in overthrowing the Midianites. This is a clear reminder for each one of us that anything that comes before God is an Idol and we must obey God in whatever he calls us to do.

Bathsheba the faithful mother

| 0

Sometimes we discount characters in the Bible who experienced sin or went through trials. One example of this is Bathsheba who is usually known for her relationship with David, and not for her role as a mother of Solomon. Looking at 1Kings 2 and other passages Josh expounds how the relationship of Bathsheba and Salomon points to Mary and Jesus.

A New Thing

| 0

As the New Year starts, Brian is sharing a vision of what our church will aspire for in the next year. Looking at Isaiah 43:18ff, we discover that the new thing is something that must be done in us before it can be done through us. Sometimes new life and growth comes through “old things” that we have known for a while like scripture reading, and praying for one another. However, the growth always comes through the power of the Lord.

He’s Got Skin in the Game

Hebrews 4:14-16 show us that Christ is able to empathize with us in our struggles because he has been tempted in every way, yet without sin. Brian looks at several different people from scripture and from our current world to see how they had opportunity to submit, but refused to do so and how it cost them everything.

Part 3 – Why?

| 0

Looking at the end of Nehemiah chapter 2, Brian shows us that when evil and sickness happen we often want to know why these things happen. These things always happen by the will of God, but they do not always correlate to punishment and sin. We have sickness in our community, and the scriptures show that these things happen for God to be glorified in what ever circumstances happen.

Part 1 – Great Trouble

The land and world we live in is in need of restoration. Beginning this new series in Nehemiah, Brian calls the church to look at their lives and reflect upon the rebuilding that needs to occur in each one of our own lives. We are all leaders and Nehemiah shows us an example of what it means to lead the cause of restoration in our community.

Jotham: Lessons for Life

| 0

Looking at the life of King Jotham from the Old Testament, Bob highlights the truth that Pastor Brian has been preaching about the last few weeks. Primarily looking at 2 Chronicles 27, we see that this lesser known king was a good king and although he did not bring about great change in the world, was exactly where God wanted him to be; abiding in him.

Justice & Mercy

| 0

Looking at Micah 6, Hosea 6, and a couple other passages, Brian breaks down what we are called to do as Christians. To what extent are we to go in following Jesus? What can I get away with and still be okay with God? These may be some of the questions that we ask ourselves. However, God’s word is clear in telling us to that God is not as much satisfied with our sacrifices and worship as obeying him and living humbly before him.

Vision of the Future

| 0

Brain shares a message that has been on his heart for a while. Looking at the past can be good for understanding the future as long as one does not dwell in the past. Looking at Ephesians 4 primarily, Brian shows what it means for the church to be unified and working toward the goal of advancing the kingdom of God.
