In Sunday School today, students learn the story of “Paul’s First Missionary Journey.” Just as God sent Paul and Barnabas to spread the Gospel, so today He sends pastors to preach the Gospel, baptize, and feed Jesus’ body and blood to His children, against whom the gates of hell cannot prevail. Consider discussing, “Who gave Paul directions on where to travel? What was Paul’s message

Matt. 4:20 - “Immediately they left their nets and followed him.” Discipleship cost Peter and Andrew everything they had. They left their trade, their hometown and their families, and they followed Jesus. God has called us to the same discipleship and the same devotion, though the exact details of how that is lived out will vary. The important thing is that we know that all we have is the Lord’s to be used for His purpose, and we are His disciples, ready to follow where He leads

The ‘right’ of abortion does not expand personal choice or freedom; it severely restricts it because it establishes the prior ‘right’ of the state to permit or to deny the right to life at will. Such a step, the legalization of abortion, is the beginning of the death of freedom and of man.” R. J.

Sermon Series

Updated

2020

Christ is the cornerstone of our faith. This means the foundation of our life as the people of God is built upon Him. In this sermon series, we take a look at the teachings of Scripture that comprise the foundation of our faith and see how they center on Christ and shape our everyday lives.

Theme Verse : “For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 3:11)

January 26th - The Gathering: Worship John 4:5-7, 9-10, 13-14, 19-20, 23-24 Worship is the natural and inevitable response of people who have faith in God to a good God. In this message, we look at the nature of worship, the location of worship, and the focus of worship in the Christian life.

February 2nd - The Water: Baptism Acts 8:26-27a, 32, 35-36, 38 In the last chapter of Matthew, Jesus calls us to make disciples in two ways: by teaching His Word and by baptizing in His name (cf. Matthew 28:19-20). The Ethiopian eunuch becomes a disciple by baptism. Jesus still makes disciples in baptism today!

February 9th - The Meal: Lord’s Supper Luke 22:7-8, 15-16, 19-20 When Jesus celebrates the Passover with His disciples the night before He dies, it becomes more than a Passover. It becomes a promise of His presence. For in, with, and under simple forms of bread and wine is the body and blood of Christ. In this message, we look at the Passover and how Jesus’ death on a cross leads God to not merely passover our sins, but to forgive them!

February 16th - The Mission: Evangelism 2 Kings 7:3-9 The call of every Christian is to live beyond themselves. We are to share the hope that we have with the world. When some lepers stumble into an Aramean camp that has been emptied by God, and when they find all sorts of treasure there, they cannot help but share the good news of the treasure with their neighbors. How can we do anything less than share the good news of the Gospel with our neighbors?

In an extraordinary lesson of forgiveness there once was a man who could do nothing for himself and was dependent on his friends. Some saw this as God’s judgment upon him. Jesus forgives him of his sins to the astonishment of the teachers of the Law. And then, Jesus heals him.
