April 29, 2012: The Vine, vinedresser and branches

Today, on this mostly cloudy and cool morning, Pastor Michael Hodge's sermon was about the relationship between the Vine, vinedresser and branch. In the Christian sense, of course, it's our relationship with God. How do we truly know that we are in Him, and a part of him? Pastor Michael Hodge expounds on that theme this morning. We hope you are blessed by his sermon.

Additionally, we had Mark Fagerstrom doing the children's sermon today, and we hope you are blessed by that. Additionally, we had two Special Musics in our service today. Kaelynn Clark sang "Jesus Loves Me (this I know)", and Pastor Hodge and Amy Hodge sang "Amazing Grace", with Roger Seldal on guitar.

You can find all of these, which were recorded and then uploaded here:

May you be found in Christ always!

April 15, 2012: Fruits of the Spirit: Self-control

One of the marks of a true Christian is self-control. In our sermon today, Pastor Michael Hodge delivered his sermon about self-control. We are not holy and perfect yet, of course. But increasing as time goes on, we should exhibit more patience, less unrighteous anger, and be able to be tested in trials...and pass the test. What happened to the minister who was only given bread on dirty plates and cussed at for 3 days? Find out his victory in self-control by the power of the Holy Spirit, as you listen to Pastor Hodge's sermon on this cloudy, windy but mild Sunday morning.

Also, Ruth Taylor had our special music, and Mark delivered his children's sermon on What's In A Name? You can hear both of these by clicking on the link here:

We had a slight audio issue with the Pastor's sermon that was fixed late in the sermon (a slight ringing/feedback noise); I apologize for that.

May you have a joyous and blessed week in the Lord!

April 1, 2012, Palm Sunday: Group think

Today, on this cloudy but mild Palm Sunday morning, Pastor Michael Hodge talked about Jesus' triumphanl entry into Jerusalem. Most people in the crowd were all caught up in the emotion of the moment, and most in the group cheered...some just "because", but others had other evil thoughts. How should we respond to Jesus' entry as we begin Holy Week? With cheering as a prophet, a teacher as most did...or Someone else far greater? Listen to his sermon to find out.
Also, Marilyn gave us special music today, and we hope you are blessed by that!

As we enter into Holy Week, think about our Lord as he began his journey into a very dark...and a very wonderful week.

We apologize for the first minute of the sermon being cut off; it was due to operator error (sorry!).
