The Cost of God’s Enduring Grace

Date: February 11, 2024 | Speaker:

If you ever feel like God is being unfair or that His judgments are too harsh, just remember the enduring patience and boundless love He extended to His rebellious people for 390 years! Today’s sermon reveals the unimaginable lengths God goes to in order to call His people back to Himself, even amidst their defiance. The fact is that God has patiently endured humanity’s betrayal for centuries, and He is still extending His patience to us today. God’s grace outlasts our sin, offering redemption and restoration to all who turn to Him. May we gain a deeper gratitude for God’s mercy and the profound sacrifice that opened the way to redemption through Jesus Christ.

Beyond Your Abilities: Finding Strength in God’s Spirit

Date: February 4, 2023 | Speaker:

Have you ever been prompted by God to do something so daunting or beyond your abilities that it left you paralyzed in fear? Maybe it was an invitation to teach your first Sunday School class, share your faith with an unfriendly neighbor, or go on a mission trip to a dangerous land. Even though you may feel incapable, don’t spend one more day hesitating! God has promised to empower you for whatever He calls you to do, regardless of the challenges you may face. God gave Ezekiel a task that terrified him, but his response challenges us to find strength in God’s Spirit and trust in His ultimate plan, no matter how overwhelming it may seem. Remember, the same God who empowered Ezekiel will empower you!

The Incomprehensible Majesty of God

Date: January 28, 2023 | Speaker:

It has been said that what comes to our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us. Your view of God—right or wrong—will define your entire relationship with Him, so make absolutely sure it is based on truth. Our tendency is to create a god who is just like us; one we can manage and manipulate. But the God of heaven is not confined by our limited intellect or controlled by our expectations. The complexity of His glory extends far beyond our wildest imagination. Have you reduced God to something He is not? Have you created a god in your own image? You need a fresh look at who God really is and allow His vastness to bring you to your knees before Him!

Stop Trying to Earn God’s Approval

Date: January 21, 2023 | Speaker:

Are you still trying to earn God’s love by keeping a long list of religious rules? Does the constant effort to be good enough leave you weary and wondering if you will ever measure up? It’s time to let go of the burdensome shackles of performance-based religion and embrace the incredible benefits of the new covenant Jesus made possible through his sacrificial death on the cross. It’s no longer about observing external rules and regulations. Jesus fulfilled all of those old requirements on your behalf, washed all your sins away, and you can now stand completely righteous before God! Don’t live another day trying to please God through your own efforts. Start living in the new life of God’s grace, forgiveness, and acceptance!

The Significance of Our Skills & Experience

Date: January 7, 2024 | Speaker:

God has given each of us particular abilities, but He has done so for a reason. He wants us to develop these abilities into skills in order to use them for His purposes. There are good works God has prepared for us to do which require these skills. Not only that, but our experience with these skills, and our life experiences in general, will be quite valuable. Join us as we consider the significance of our skills and experience.

Leave Yesterday Behind and Move On!

Date: December 31, 2023 | Speaker:

Driving a car always looking in the rearview mirror will inevitably lead to disaster. While we would never do such a foolish thing on the road, we often do just that in our spiritual journey. Memories of our past sins can weigh us down and immobilize us. Don’t waste time wallowing in your past failures or coasting on past successes. Leave yesterday behind and focus on the goal Christ has set before you. Fix your eyes on the prize that awaits, and run the race with purpose. Is there anything hindering your journey to the finish line? It’s time to break free and press on in the victory of Christ!

Where is the Peace the Angel Promised?

Date: December 24, 2023 | Speaker:

Whatever happened to the “peace on earth” that the ‌angels promised at the birth of Jesus? Instead of tranquility, the world remains plagued by wars, famines, disasters, and diseases. Our sins not only bear responsibility for these issues but also for separating us from God. Consequently, humanity’s greatest need is not global harmony but reconciliation with God, and that is precisely what Jesus came to provide. Genuine peace cannot be attained through earthly pursuits, but you can experience peace with God right now by placing your trust in Christ for salvation. Do you possess the true, lasting peace that only the Prince of Peace can give?

Living for God in a Godless World

Date: December 10, 2023 | Speaker:

In the tapestry of our lives, every thread woven by God serves a purpose, even the dark and difficult strands that we wish weren’t there. God often places us in challenging circumstances to humble and refine us, so we must learn to embrace His purifying work, whatever it may be. As we stand firm in our faith, God’s purpose will be perfected in us, and His glory will shine like a beacon of hope to the lost world, guiding them to Him. Remember, our battles here are only temporary, and we have the bright promise of an eternal future in His presence where everything will be made new!

Preparing Today for Tomorrow’s Trials: The Faith You Need to Finish Strong

Date: December 3, 2023 | Speaker:

What godly character traits and spiritual disciplines are you ‌building into your life today ‌that will enable you to ‌withstand the fiercest storms and finish strong for God? Unwavering resolve is not a result of spontaneous courage but a day-by-day commitment to walk in righteousness and integrity. Pay close attention to your daily choices, because that’s where character is formed. As you devote yourself to prayer, cultivate integrity, and foster discipline, you are laying the groundwork for a faith that refuses to bow in the face of temptations and trials. Start this transformative process today, because tomorrow’s trials are unpredictable, but your commitment to godly living can be unwavering if you have laid the right foundation.

Giving Thanks When Life Is Hard

Date: November 26, 2023 | Speaker:

Ever find it challenging to muster gratitude when life throws you curveballs? The Bible tells us to give thanks in all circumstances, but the only way that’s possible is when we realize that thankfulness is a choice, not a mood or a feeling. This isn’t about denying hardships; it’s about embracing a perspective that transcends them. You can discover the power of cultivating a heart of gratitude, not just when life is smooth sailing, but especially when the storm clouds gather. Learn how giving thanks, even when it seems counterintuitive, can anchor your faith and redirect your focus from the struggles to the sovereignty of a loving God.
