December 11, 2018: The Good News of Great Joy

This week, Pastor Hodge continued in his advent series on the good news of great joy. That, of course, is Jesus Christ. But is it the gift of true joy? And if it is, how does it help with what we’re dealing with right now, and in our lives? Listen and find out!

We also had Amy Taylor do our children’s sermon, and we had the lighting of the Advent candle. All of these can be found by cutting and pasting this link into your web browser:

December 2, 2018: Peace enters the world

This week, as we begin Advent, Pastor Hodge looks at Christ as the peace that enters the world. We will be looking at Luke 2:13-14, and Ephesians 2:14-18. In the book of Luke, we see the proclamation of peace that enters the world, and we see how peace is identified in Jesus. What does that mean to us today, and in our communion service? Listen and find out!

We also had Connie Storey do our special music. We pray that you are blessed by both of these service elements. You can hear both of them by cutting and pasting this link into your browser:

September 23, 2018: Paul's letter to Ephesus

This week, Pastor Hodge looks at Ephesians 1:1-2. In this book, we will look at where this grace and peace that we have comes from. First, to identify authority, Paul identifies himself as an apostle. What does that mean? Then he reveals who he is writing to, and ends with two behavioral qualities of God. What does this mean for us today? Listen and find out!

Mike from the Gideons came out today to do a presentation an update on what they have been doing in the area, including some of the challenges and successes they have had. If you wish to donate to the Gideons work in providing Bibles for those who don’t have one, and in hotels, please contact Dave Osland.

November 25, 2018: We are brought near to God

This week, Pastor Michael Hodge expounds on the book of Ephesians chapter 2, verses 11 through 13. In the early church, there were those who struggled with circumcision, and no circumcision, along with the faith issue. Here, we are told the bad news, what people without faith were like. And we’re also told the good news, what people with faith are like. What is our challenge? Listen and find out!

We also had Amy Taylor do her children’s sermon on light. You can listen to both of these recordings, by cutting and pasting this link into your browser, here:

November 18, 2018: We are God's workmanship

This week, Pastor Hodge expounded on Ephesians chapter 2 verse 10, where we are seem as God‘s workmanship. Our introductory verses were Ephesians 2:8-9, where we are saved by faith, not by works. What is the root word that workmanship comes from? How are we God’s workmanship? Where is God‘s work in us prepared before hand? What should we do now? Listen to his sermon find out!

November 11, 2018: You cannot work your way back to God

This week, Pastor Hodge expounds on the book of Ephesians, 2:7-9. We are reminded how God gave us a great gift; and that we do not earn our salvation. Finally, we see that faith is not a contribution to the gift of salvation in any way.

What are some of the pitfalls of the above? Listen at the link below by cutting and pasting it into your browser; and we also had our children sermon this morning recorded for you:
