Rejoice in Redemption

The gospel is not about what Jesus can do for you right now, it is about what He has already done. He has provided the way for us to live eternally with Him in paradise. This Sunday we are going to be looking at Psalm 107. In this psalm we see God Loves us and...

Those Who Know Your Name

Individuals often come to be known by a character trait or attribute that describes them in such a manner that when used, one doesn’t even have to know the name of the person to identify them. Let’s use our church family for example. If I refer to guys “who can fix anything or do anything...

Praise is Becoming
Sermons

Praise is Becoming

It is only a personal observation, but one that is nearly universal I believe—that of having a reason for all that we do. Why do I walk nearly every day and limit my visits to Pizza Ranch? Because many of my pants are too tight to wear! Why do I drink 3 pots of coffee...

Remember
Sermons

Remember

It is not uncommon for my desk at home or at church to be littered with any number of yellow stickie notes containing names, words, or numbers as a reminder of things to do or folks to call. Nor is it uncommon for me to send emails to myself of the same, just so I...

Double Portion
Sermons

Double Portion

In my own experience, many things in life are made more enjoyable with a “double portion”. For example, two scoops of ice cream are definitely better than one, two days off are preferred to one, and why settle for the “Little Buddy” of Diet Coke when you can have the “Mega Buddy?” Now that you...

Sometimes you just need a Gospel refresh, meaning sometimes you just need to bask in the Gospel message for yourself. There is no greater affirming and refreshing message to tell yourself, to remind yourself, that Jesus has died for your sins and made you a new creation. Life is hard, life is tiring and life...

God Calling

Have you ever worked through a hard thing and discovered you were the better for it? Maybe it was a disagreement with a co-worker or friend, a rigorous academic class at school, or even a season of time with your job. Sometimes the call of God can be like that. We sense His draw or...

One Eternity—Two Destinations

One Eternity—Two Destinations

Many of you are likely planning or have planned a summer vacation already. An important part of that plan is the selection of a destination, and there are a countless number from which one might choose. In our message this week, we also will be talking about “destinations”, but our conversation will be limited to...

Obstacle or Opportunity

Obstacle or Opportunity

As follow up from another typical pheasant season that found me missing way more birds than I shot, I found myself considering a new shotgun. My eyes were on a double barrel, over/under, as that was what the guys who were hitting the birds were shooting. However, my budget was definitely limited, and thus I...

How God Works
Sermons

How God Works

We’ll delve into Exodus 3 and 4, chapters that I recommend reading through a few times. Our message will emphasize that when God works, He commonly involves us, even though He doesn’t require our assistance. This week, we’ll explore the significant benefits of this concept and its implications for our everyday lives.
