June 24, 2012: Jesus' prayers, part 5

In the fifth of his 5 part series on Jesus prayers, Pastor Michael Hodge discusses an issue that is a major issue in churches today: Christian unity. God's word clearly teaches us about the unity of his church (John 17:20). He prays for his disciples, those who were yet to come, and for their unity. But, too often these days unity is done with abiblical doctrine. Learn what Jesus really meant when he prayed for his future disciples, and true Christian unity.

Additionally, the men's quartet sang our special music for us, and Mark Fagerstrom taught our children with his sermon today. You can listen to all of these by clicking here:

May you be blessed, and stay blessed in Christ this week!

June 10, 2012: Jesus' prayers, part 4

On this very warm summer morning, Pastor Michael Hodge preached on Jesus prayer of sanctification from his disciples. Jesus not only desires our salvation, but once we are saved, he prays for our sanctification, or purification, of us to be able to say "no" to sin. How does this happen in our every day lives? Listen to Pastor Hodge's sermon to learn how.

Also, today, we were blessed by the Grace Notes Trio, and the song "Showers Of Blessing". We hope this song brings a heavy shower to blessing to you as you listen!

You can hear both the sermon, and the special music, right here:

Have a wonderful week in Christ, and may the Lord be with you always!

June 3rd, 2012: Jesus' prayers, part 3

On this partly cloudy and pleasant Sunday morning, Pastor Hodge preached the Word by teaching us about Jesus prayers of protection over us. Did you know that, if you are a believer, Jesus prays for the safety of his believers? To be clear, some are martyred and all must suffer for the faith. But, Jesus prays for his believers and to keep them out of harm's way, as it is the will of the Father. You can listen to this sermon here:

Also, Amy Taylor played "The King is Exalted" on flute for our special music today. May you be safe in God's hand this week, and may the Lord strengthen you in Christ Jesus for every work this week!
