April 27, 2014: Change agents God uses through the Holy Spirit

As believers and followers of Jesus Christ, we must remember that God does all the changing, but gives us the power to preach the Gospel, which will save the lost! We are his change-agents, if you will, by Christ giving us the power, through the Holy Spirit, to declare the Good News of Salvation to a dying world that desperately needs it. Listen to his sermon today how this is seen clearly in Scripture in the book of Mark, chapter 3.

We also had special music (sorry, the recording got cut off due to hitting the wrong button!), and our children's sermon was on "glasses" by Molly Blobaum. Why do people wear glasses, and how is God's Word like glasses? Listen to her sermon, and our other program segments, which is found here:

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

April 20, 2014: Easter Sunday!

Today is Easter. After celebrating the darkest day of mankind on Good Friday, we celebrate the greatest day in the Universe, ever! It's the day we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. The death rate of mankind is right at 100%, but Jesus proved he was truly God in the flesh as he rose from the dead. Listen to how this should profoundly affect us in everything we do today...over 2,000 years later, as Pastor Hodge delivered our sermon today. Also, we had special music and much more as well! You can listen to it all here:

Happy Easter, and may you have a great week in Christ Jesus!

April 13, 2014: Palm Sunday

Hello everyone,
We're sorry you couldn't be with us for our Palm Sunday service. Do not forget, no Wednesday Bible study this week, but our Maundy Thursday service begins at 7 PM, and our Easter service begins next Sunday at 8 AM!

Today, Pastor Hodge delved into the book of Mark chapter 7 and the meaning of Palm Sunday. As we begin Holy Week, listen to Pastor Hodge as Jesus makes his triumphant entry to Jerusalem, as people cry Hosanna to the highest!
Also, we had the Grace Notes Trio do our special music today, and Molly Blobaum had our children's sermon as well. Listen to all of these here:

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

April 6, 2014: Mark 7 and 8: it's not about entertainment

Today, Pastor Michael Hodge continued his series in the book of Mark, specifically chapters 7 and 8. Yesterday, 80,000 fans watched the Final Four basketball games (and, of course, many more on TV). In Jesus' day, he also attracted large crowds. Some looked for entertainment; some looked for the teachings of a good teacher. But Jesus pointed to who He was...the Son of God, and that was what people needed, not entertainment. In our world of entertainment and excess, listen to what His purpose was...and what ours needs to be.

Also, we had Kaelynn Clark sing "Amazing Grace" for our special music.  You can listen to all of this here:

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