This week's message, "An Unexpected Journey"

Sunday, December 27, 2020

This week's message, "An Unexpected Journey", is from Acts 16:1-10. You can view it on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.  As always, the message is available on the recent sermons section of the web site or from your favorite Podcasting app.

Ken Stockdell says, "O the plans we had for 2020! But suddenly in March, seemingly without warning, all our plans were set aside. We’ve managed to muddle through thus far, but wrestling all the time with questions about how we plan our lives in the midst of all this uncertainty. As we seek guidance on how we should respond to all this, it occurred to me that the apostle Paul faced similar unexpected changes of plans during his second missionary journey. What can we learn from him about how to deal with the unexpected journey that 2020 has become and the impact of that on 2021 as we look forward? Let’s look at Acts 16:1-10 and see."

This week's message, "Two Truths in All the Trappings"

Sunday, December 20, 2020

This week's message, "Two Truths in All the Trappings", is from John 1:1-5. You can view it on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.  As always, the message is available on the recent sermons section of the web site or from your favorite Podcasting app.

Pastor Spencer says, "Well, here we are in what may be the strangest Christmas season we’ve ever known. “Darkness” has taken on a whole new depth in view of the isolation and separation we’ve come to know over the last nine months or so. And “death,” no longer held at arm’s length, has become a more present reality than we’ve been comfortable with in decades. In all this chaos and confusion and madness and fear, is there anything to stir our worship and sustain in us a spirit of celebration, joy, rest, and hope? I believe there is! Let’s look …"

This week's message, "‘Tis Mystery and Mercy All!"

Sunday, December 13, 2020

This week's message, "‘Tis Mystery and Mercy All!", is again from 1 Timothy 1:15-17. You can view it on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.  As always, the message is available on the recent sermons section of the web site or from your favorite Podcasting app. This week's message is audio only.

Pastor Spencer says, "It rolls off our tongues without hardly a second thought, this language about being “saved.” But if you were pressed, what would you say that means exactly? What does it mean to be saved? What had to happen for God, who is perfectly just, to save sinners, who are altogether ungodly? And when God saves a sinner, what happens to that sinner? In other words, what happened to accomplish our salvation, and then what happens when salvation is applied to us personally? Let’s hear what the Scriptures say!"

This week's message, "Behold the Ugliness!"

Sunday, December 06, 2020

This week's message, "Behold the Ugliness!", is from 1 Timothy 1:15-17. You can view it on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.  As always, the message is available on the recent sermons section of the web site or from your favorite Podcasting app.

Pastor Spencer says, "Allyson and I have been reading through the Gospel of Luke, one chapter a night, starting at the first of the month and it takes us up to Christmas Eve. And one thing I noticed, and it’s in Matthew’s gospel too, is that when we read the birth accounts of Jesus in the Gospels, particularly in Luke, there’s a lot of ugliness there. And if we ever hope to have a proper grasp of and glory in the real beauty of Christmas, we first have to get a proper understanding of the ugliness of Christmas."

This week's message, "Bank On It!"

Sunday, November 29, 2020

This week's message, "Bank On It!", is from 1 Timothy 1:15-17. You can view it on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.  As always, the message is available on the recent sermons section of the web site or from your favorite Podcasting app.

Pastor Spencer says, "Christmas-y language will proliferate over the next few weeks. Seasonal 'sayings' will snowball. Many will be catchy, cute, clever and play off the Bible’s own language. But they’ll be mostly recontextualized—offering Christmas as just one more in a long line of 'image' events. Is there anything that can invade this shallow holiday diversion with true and real substantive hope and joy? Let’s look …"
