January 26, 2019: The dilemma between God and Man

This week, the Gospel was presented in full. We are reminded that things were once great between God and man. But then Adam and Eve began to doubt God, and desired something that they thought was better. Then Adam and Eve made a decision that had colossal implications which affect us today. They sinned against  our holy God, and the evil of sin separated us from fellowship with God. We would be damned in hell forever as a result of this, except…

God's loving response brought us out of our hopeless dilemma and back together, by having Jesus Christ die on the cross for our sins to those who repent, or turn from their sins, and trust and believe in Christ as their Savior, Lord and Master.

Even so, there are still consequences for our sin. As believers in Christ, what can we do, and by whose strength and power does the work?

We also had Molly give our children's sermon this morning. You can hear both of these service elements here:

January 19, 2020: Creation and the value of human life

We're sorry you couldn't be with us this morning! Please join us Wednesday evening for our Bible study and prayer starting at 7 PM, and then next Sunday join us for Sunday school starting at 9:30 AM, followed by our worship service at 10:30 AM.

This was National Right to Life Sunday, and we take a look at the Scriptures to show how much God values life in the womb, all the way to death. And it's not because of us, but because of God who decrees that, and who is the author and authority of all life.

We also had Pastor Hodge do our children's sermon this morning; we hope you are blessed by that. And, you can hear both of these service elements here:

January 5, 2020: Communion

This week was communion, and Pastor Hodge expounded on what communion is, and why we do it, and some of the viewpoints of communion. but then we go back to the Bible to see what it really is.

The back portion of this sermon was not recorded, as the sermon was split into two parts, with communion about 2/3 of the way in. However, what was recorded was worthwhile, and you should listen to it, here:
