2020 Christmas Eve Service

Sing shouts of praise to Him, let us remember that we have received The Most Amazing Gift of Jesus Christ.

Everything is created by Him, He who transcends time and space. We questioned His word and rebelled, sin and death entered as a consequence, and we continue question His promise and His existence. We have no way of coming back to Him... yet He came down to rescue us.

The Gospel of Luke 05 - Genealogy - The Family Tree

December 20, 2020

November 15, 2020

Acts 1:1-11; 1 Thess. 1:10, 4:13-18; Jn. 14:3
Second Coming: A People With Hope
At the Ascension (Acts1:11) the angel promised that Jesus would return in the same way He left. Since that time, Christians have been awaiting His return or Second Coming. Living with this 'anticipation' gives up hope.

ReFocus 09 - Unity: Standing Together

November 8, 2020

2 Chron. 30:12; Ps. 133:1; Jn. 17:23; Rom. 15:5; Eph. 4:3,13; Col. 3:14
Unity: Standing Together
Julius Ceasar is quoted as saying "Divide et impera"; this Latin phrase means "divide and conquer". The idea was that internal divison will make people vulnerable to conquest. Satan has been using this strategy for years.

ReFocus 08 - Spiritual Conflict

November 1, 2020

Gen. 3: 1; Matt. 4: 1-11; Eph. 6: 10-12
Spiritual Conflict: The Real Battle
Behind all the conflict is a devious, cruel, manipulative enemy and his demonic host. To miss this reality (which he wants you to do) will result in discouragement, defeat and even destruction. It's time to dress for battle!!

ReFocus 07 - Identity

October 25, 2020

2 Tim. 4: 1-22
Identity: Intentionally Designed
Who are you? Who are you in God's divine plan? What does He call you to do? How has He equipped you to do it? All of these questions are critical for those who want a purpose filled life. All of these questions help you focus so that you can have a life that is 'eternally' significant.

October 18, 2020

Matt. 28: 16-20; Mk. 16: 8b-20

ReFocus 05 - Community

October 11, 2020

Heb. 10: 24-25; Acts 2: 42-47; 4: 32-37
Community: The Fellowship
We are living in a world that wants us to avoid crowds and 'distance' ourselves relationally for our own protection. But we must be warned: 'Isolation for the Christian can be spiritually destructive'. We are called to live in a 'Godly-community' for our own personal protection and growth. It is critical that we revisit the need for the practice of Christian community.

ReFocus 04 - Worship

October 4, 2020

2 Sam. 6: 1-23; Eph. 5: 19; Col. 3: 16

ReFocus 03 - The Word

September 27, 2020

Psalm 19: 7-14; John 8: 32, 14: 6, 17: 17, 18: 38
The Word: A Foundation of Truth
"What is truth?" This old question, once asked by Pontius Pilate, is one of the most difficult terms to define today. The world wants us to believe there is no ultimate truth any more. Or they describe it as "what I personally feel!". In contrast, Jesus described himself as the "Truth..."

ReFocus 02 - The Gospel

September 20, 2020

Gal. 1: 6-9, Rom. 1: 16-17; 1 Cor. 15: 1-8
The Gospel - The Center of God's Story
What is at the center of our faith? What is so fundamental that all Christians must agree with it - or not be Christians. For most Christians the answer to this question is easy - 'It's the gospel!'
So, what is the Gospel? You may be surprised!

ReFocus 01 - Unfocused

September 13, 2020

1 Chron. 12: 32, Luke 17: 20-37, Josh. 24: 14-28
Unfocused: Focusing on the Insignificant
With all the confusion in this world, many of us have become distracted. Our priorities have become blurred and our faith fuzzy. What does a Christian focus on? It's time we step away and revisit what is essential. It's time we return to our calling and purpose in a world of madness and mess.

Leaving Loneliness

September 6, 2020

A Grief Revisited

August 16, 2020

Echoes of Sodom

June 7, 2020

Judges 19-21; Gen.19   How bad does it have to get before God will step in and do something? This is the question the writer of Judges leaves us with. In these final chapters the author paints us a final picture of a society in moral decay, civil war, social violence and perverse values. Is our world that different?

Spiritually Compromised

May 31, 2020 - Judges: Just Messed Up, Sermon 10 of 11

Judges 17-18; Josh.19:47   Israel is clearly a mess! The people loved idols made of money. The Priesthood was spiritually compromised. And the Tribes were wandering around doing atrocious acts rather than obeying God. Do we see the same practices today in our world?

Consequences

May 24, 2020 - Judges: Just Messed Up, Sermon 9 of 11

Judges 15-16; Isa.59:2; Lev.26:14-33   "Be sure your sins will find you out!” (Num.32:23 KJV). Too many Christians live as if this verse is not true. They act as if God will ignore repeated, defiant sin. Do we really believe that God is somehow blind to our sin? Do we think there will be no consequences for an unholy lifestyle?
