October 28, 2012: Spiritual formation, part 2: the heart

On this blustery and mostly cloudy Sunday, Pastor Michael Hodge continued his series on spiritual formation. He talked about how our hearts get changed by God. And, if not by God, than things of this world, which wwill lead us down a path of ruin.

While we were blessed by his sermon today, he got a little too passionate and accidently knocked his microphone out. While our audio engineer replaced the microphone, we lost about 1/4 of his sermon, which, when you listen to the parts that did get recorded, doesn't flow well without the missing piece. So, this week we regret that we don't have any audio of his sermon. We'll fix that issue for next week (actually, it already has been taken care of), and we apologize for the inconvenience.

October 21, 2012: What is your worldview?

On this sunny, breezy and mild morning, Pastor Hodge was out of town, so we had Steve Jameson from Freedom Lutheran Church north of Ottawa, IL preach our message this morning. His sermon was on "What is your worldview"? Unlike politicians who say that what they believe in their private, religious life has no bearing on their public lives and beliefs, God's Word is clear that not only is that not true---it's the definition of schizophrenia! So what is our worldview, and those of our elected officials, and everyone else...and why does it matter? Listen to Steve's sermon and be blessed by it today.

Also...we had special music with Roger Seldal, and our children's sermon about hymnals was done by Mark Fagerstrom. Listen to all of these by clicking here:

And we hope you have a wonderful week in Christ Jesus!

October 7th, 2012: Prayer in a Christian's life

Prayer has a very important role in a Christian's life. It is our way of communicating to God through Jesus. The implications of this cannot be understated, and you can listen to Roger Scott's sermon, our guest speaker this week, by clicking on part 1.

Due to our older CD recorder, whenever he paused longer than a second or so, it started a new track. Just click on track 1 and it will flow naturally without you having to do a thing...except listen and be blessed. To begin, go here:

And we hope this is a blessing to you in Christ Jesus this week!
