December 10, 2017: The gift of the King revealed

This week, Pastor Michael Hodge continues his Christmas series in Luke 1:26-35. We see how the angel Gabriel visits Mary with a special message from God. That she has found favor with God, and God's offspring will come through her. But Mary has a big question. What is that question, and what does it mean for us today? Listen and find out!

We also had Mariam and Carol Rumpf light our Advent candles, some very special music, and Mark Fagerstrom had his children's sermon on candles today. You can listen to all of these service elements here:

December 3, 2017: The gift of salvation revealed to Joseph

This week, we begin our Advent series with Matthew 1:18-25. We begin with Joseph's dilemma: Mary was engaged to Joseph, but before they married, Mary was found to be with a child. But Joseph was a Godly man, and wanted to divorce her quietly. But...an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, and changed the course of what would happen next. Listen to Pastor Hodge as he talks about what happens next, and what we can do in response to this.

We also had the lighting of one of our first Advent candles today. Both of these recordings can be found here:

November 5, 2017: Jim Mistry trip to Ethiopia, and expository preaching

This week, we had two sermons, but due to a bit of confusion on my part, a shortened  sermon by Pastor Hodge wasn't recorded (sorry!). Jim Mistry, however, presented on what he did in Ethiopia, and how he taught expository preaching...and then gave a sermon on the Word of God. This is recorded here:
