The Star: A Journey of Joy

Published December 11, 2017

Date: 12/10/2017 Title: The Star: A Journey of Joy Speaker: Pastor George Gracie Scripture: Luke 2:8-20   Often we think that the goal in life is happiness. The problem is that this happiness is often allusive, as it is dependent upon our circumstances. Rather than promising us fleeting happiness, God promises us joy. In Luke 2 a group of shepherds received a visit by an angel who brought them “good news of great joy that will be for all people” and were treated to an angelic praise and worship session in the process. The Christmas season we need to be […]

Published November 13, 2017

  Date: 11/12/2017 Title: What is True Thanksgiving? Speaker: Pastor Daryl J. Stalter Scripture: Luke 17:11-19 Thanksgiving is upon us. It is wonderful that we have a day set aside for thanksgiving to God. Yet, that thanksgiving is often cut short by Black Friday, a day dedicated to rushing to get what we do not have. We can find our selves with a similar struggle in our walk with God. We find ourselves thankful to God in one moment and then in the very next breath as the next trial or distraction comes we forget that thankful attitude. We fluctuate […]

Date: 10/29/2017 Title: Your Call to Ministry Speaker: Pastor Darryl J. Stalter Scripture: Matthew 14:13-21   Unfortunately, many of us have bought into the lie that ministry is something that only professional ministers are to do. According to the Bible ministry is not a profession. It is the faithful service of all God’s people rendered unto God and others on His behalf to bring Him glory, build up His church, and reach out to His world. In Matthew 14 Jesus calls on his disciples to minister to a large crowd in the most impossible way to draw them to himself. […]
