This week's message, "Six Simple Words"

Sunday, July 12, 2020

This week's message, "Six Simple Words", is from Psalm 31. Videos are available on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.  As always, the audio only version is available on the recent sermons section of the web site or from your favorite Podcasting app.

Pastor Spencer says, "The Puritans referred to some seasons of struggle in the Christian life as “the dark night of the soul.” And what they had in view was no ordinary melancholy, but a spiritual depression linked to a crisis of faith that’s ignited often by crushing circumstances—a crisis that comes when God seems absent, a crisis that gives rise to a feeling of being abandoned by him. The psalmist David was no stranger to this. What can we learn from him about the way through it and into the light of God?"

Pastor Spencer says, "How do we become “agents of shalom,” and help people rest, and rightly put together the great matter of the gospel with a world filled with widespread disaster and destruction and chaos?"

This week's message, "Joy! Rest! Hope!", is from Psalm 33. Videos are available on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.  As always, the audio only version is available on the recent sermons section of the web site or from your favorite Podcasting app.

Pastor Spencer says, "No one who trusts in God the Lord is ever disappointed at last. And no one who waits on him in trusting hope will ever be let down."

This week's message: "The Gathering of the Glad!" - Psalm 122

Sunday, June 21, 2020

This week's message, "The Gathering of the Glad!", is from Psalm 122. Videos are available on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.  As always, the audio only version is available on the recent sermons section of the web site or from your favorite Podcasting app.

Pastor Spencer says, "What lies behind these psalms of ascent, and the picture they draw out for us, is a great theology of shared pilgrimage—a grand calling, a divine story, a transforming vision, a liberating orientation, the “expulsive power of a new affection,” eyes to see and ears to hear and a heart that understands, that altogether give us a sense of collaborative direction, a common goal, and a unified end point. We are they who look for something that cannot be seen. Glory awaits, and Christian pilgrims maintain a steady but determined discipline of facing forward together."

This week's sermon - “Is Not the LORD Your God With You?” - 1 Chronicles 22:17–19

Sunday, June 14, 2020

This week's message, "Is Not the LORD Your God With You?", from 1 Chronicles 22:17-19, is a timely reminder that as we are on mission, taking the gospel to the world where we live, work, and worship, we are not on our own. Videos are available on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.  As always, the audio only version is available on the recent sermons section of the web site or from your favorite Podcasting app.

Pastor Spencer says, "The Lord’s people in the world—and such a world as this—aren’t to be anxiety-ridden, fear-driven, despair-laden, situation-defined, self-contained little black holes of wretchedness, sucking up and shattering who or whatever happens to stumble over their “event horizon.” No! Rather, we’re to be beacons of shining light in “this present darkness,” to be blocks of preserving salt in all this dank decay (Matt 5:13–16), to be convincing evidences of freedom among all who’re bound and tortured in the merciless slavery of Satan and sin and self (John 8:36; Rom 6), and to be always “ready to give an answer to anyone who asks about the hope” [hope that’s apparent, inexplicable, and attractive] that’s in us (1 Pet 3:15). But how? What reality (and perspective) sets and keeps us, God’s people, on the right path?"
