February 19, 2017: I believe in God the Father Almighty...

This week, Pastor Hodge expounds on various Scriptures as they pertain to Petition 1 of the Apostle's Creed. He introduces the restlessness of mankind and his/her search for purpose, value and direction. It starts with believing in God, believing in God the Father, and then God the Father Almighty. See how this ties into the Apostle's Creed by listening to his message today.

Also, we had special music by Randy and Kim Schott, and our children's sermon today by Diane Lizer. We hope you are blessed by all of these service elements, recorded for you, here:

February 12, 2017: As we confess our faith

This week, Pastor Hodge looks at various Scriptures under the sermon title "As we confess our faith". Or...did the apostles really say that? First, it is extremely important to know about what we believe, and why we believe. We look at the Apostle's Creed, and the theology of it all. Listen to his sermon today as we learn about the proclamation of the Godhead/Trinity.

And, Molly Blobaum did her sermon on love, with Valentine's Day as the backdrop, and what true love really is.

February 5th, 2017: Christianity 101: The impact of Jesus on our lives

This week, Pastor Michael Hodge talks about the basic, yet profound impacts of the Gospel. To do this, he looks at Titus 3:3-8, and unpacks each part of the verse. It isn't pretty: we are disobedient, deceived, running away from what is the truth. God enters to rescue us from our sin and evil that we do, and saves us and preserves us when we repent and believe. Listen to this important sermon which tells us who we are, and what God wants us to be.

January 22, 2017: You shall not covet

This week, Pastor Hodge looks at the Commandment that says a little and yet so much: you shall not covet. What is coveting? It's a condition of the heart that desires what someone else has, instead of being content with what you have. What does it do to us? What does it take away our focus of? And what is brought by being satisfied from the heart? Listen to Pastor Hodge's sermon today to find out.

We also had Diane Lizer do our children's sermon on "Twister". Our sound guy is a weather man and chases twisters, but what does this have to do with the Bible? Listen to her sermon and find out.

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.
