January 15, 2016: Truth or consequences

This week, Pastor Michael Hodge focuses in on the 9th commandment:you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. We are not to lie, and must not justify it. Practically applying this and unpacking it, we see how devastating it is to our credibility, and even more importantly, the Gospel. Listen to his sermon today on why we should not lie, and what happens when we hear one.

Also, we had Molly Blobaum do her children's sermon. Sorry for the 20 seconds of dead audio at the beginning; bear with us as the microphone comes on.

January 8, 2017: You shall not steal, or: do I have to own up to it?

This week, Pastor Hodge looks at the 8th Commandment, you shall not steal. Stealing is obvious, right? Or is it much more than robbing a bank, or taking something from someone that is not yours?
In his message today, Pastor Hodge expounds on this commandment, and some of the original language behind it. This allows us to go deeper, and realize it's more than just possessions. Listen to Pastor Hodge's sermon today to see what the Bible teaches about stealing...and it goes beyond possessions!

We also had Molly Blobaum do her children's sermon on new year resolutions, and our church Chairman Tim Struthers has a message about changes to our membership that you need to be aware of.

December 4, 2016: The Word became flesh

This week, Pastor Hodge continued in John 1:14 and his message is on "The Word became flesh". When this happened, Jesus made his dwelling with us, and is the source of law and order (Colossians 1:16). We see God's splendor in Jesus, and is full of grace and truth. Listen to his message here on one of the most important parts of who Jesus is.

We had Dale do our special music this morning, and the Storeys lit the Advent candle of God's Word this morning. We hope you are blessed by these recordings, which you can hear by clicking on this link:
