The Lord My Healer

Published October 30, 2016

Date: 10/30/2016 Title: The Lord My Healer Speaker: Darryl J. Stalter Scripture: Matthew 8:1-17     The Old Testament prophet Isaiah promised concerning the coming Messiah, “He took our illnesses and bore our diseases.” Unfortunately, this precious promise of Scripture can be a source of division, condemnation, and doubt if not taken in its context.

Date: 10/9/2016 Title: Two Choices Speaker: Pastor George Gracie Scripture: Matthew 7:13-20 In our pluralistic society the idea that there are many paths to God or to heaven is widely accepted. In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus counters that belief by presenting us with two choices. The first is the wide and easy way of the world that many enter and that leads to destruction.

Persistent Praying

Published October 2, 2016

Date: 10/2/2016 Title: Persistent Praying Speaker: Pastor George Gracie Scripture: Matthew 7:7-12 In our world of on-demand, fast downloads, and overnight shipping we often come to God expecting an immediate answer to our prayers. Yet, God is not beholden to our seeming need of instant gratification.
