On July 23, Pastor Katy preaches on Jeremiah 1:4-9; 20:7-9. This is the first of a five-part series titled “Finding Faith in Hard Times: Lessons From Jeremiah.” Youthful idealism? Inexperienced naivety? As a teenager Jeremiah first felt a passion so consuming that he describes it as a fire in his bones. Do you know that […]

On July 16, Pastor Jim preaches on Genesis 25:21-34. Siblings are often less than kind to one another. I’m ashamed to say that in my lifetime I’ve broken three collarbones, none of which belonged to me, and two of which belonged to my brother, Bill.

“Dad—You Going to Church This Week?” Psalm 27:1-6 On June 11, the Rev. Dr. Tim Abel preaches on Psalm 27:1-6. There are a few obstacles that we create that keep us from coming to church regularly. This is especially true for men. Let’s look at those obstacles and examine not only what they are, but the […]

On June 4, Pastor Jim preaches on Acts 2:5-18. The crowds outside the windows heard voices in their own varied languages praising God. The reaction was that of amazement and bewilderment. The more cynical accused the followers of Jesus of being drunk on cheap wine. Peter cleared that up, or tried to, as soon as possible. […]
