Up & Coming

We are blessed from the preaching of our pastor and numerous guest speakers. Please see a full list below of up and coming speakers and sermons:

Building upon our focus on the Great Commission in 2017, to know Christ and to make Him known, in 2018 we resolve to explore what it means to know and live for Christ in an age that is increasingly hostile to or anti-Christ (with Ro 12:2b as our theme), and also what it means to be transformed by the Holy Spirit. Guest preachers are welcome to join us and preach on the theme of non-conformity to the world, transformation or changing our thinking.

judges-480x270In the evenings throughout 2018 Pastor Chris will be leading us in a study of Judges. Judges contains some very well known stories and many lesser known ones. It is oft times neglected or even disparaged, yet it is part of God’s Word with a powerful message to those who will listen. We’ll see the devestating effects among God’s people that conformity to the world brings, how God is faithful and gracious to delivers His people, and lastly, we will see the tragedy of our own hearts when Jesus is not king in our own lives and how only King Jesus, the greatest deliverer and judges, can save our hearts from certain disaster.

 

atonementEastertime: What happened on the cross? The full answer is probably more than we’ll every know—a mystery—and yet the Bible uses a number of pictures to clearly help us understand the ATONEMENT, an English word that we use to describe what happened on the cross to allow the believer to be at-one with God.

This Easter will take a look at some of those pictures. Jesus lived and then died in the believer’s place, to do what we couldn’t do, to accomplish… COME FIND OUT!
