Current Sermon Series

Join us at 10:30 AM this Sunday, October 14, for a message from guest preacher, Bill James.

Pastor Nate will return on Sunday, October 21, for the next sermon in our fall series,

“Faith Works” as we study the Book of James.

How do we know when someone has faith? On occasion, my youngest daughter will leap unexpectedly from the middle of our steps toward me, as I stand at the bottom of the landing. Why? Because she has faith that when she leaps, her daddy will be there to catch her. In other words, faith looks like something. Faith Works!

This fall, we will explore together what faith looks like on the ground through the book of James. True faith in Jesus is not a warm feeling that resides privately in a person’s head or heart, but instead will work itself out in real life and in real time. The evidence that one has embraced the gospel by faith in Jesus is not in words that are spoken or concepts that are believed, but instead in a life that has been transformed. In other words, Faith Works! Join us each Sunday, as we begin our fall sermon series, and pray with us that the transforming power of the gospel will be evident in our lives.

To help you prepare, the scripture for this Sunday will be:

Philippians 4:4-9 (ESV)

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned[b] and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
