Thanksgiving

 As Christians, we are so blessed! We are blessed to have God as our Heavenly Father and Jesus as our older brother. We are blessed to have the church as our spiritual family. We are blessed because we get to experience ‘thanksgiving’ 365 days per year. Instead of only celebrating the spirit of ‘thanksgiving’ once a year as most Americans do, as Christians we offer up our ‘thanksgiving’ praise to God every day in songs and prayer.  Unfortunately, in our…

The Lord’s church is different…

We live in a world that hears the word “church” and the image that explodes into the mind of the world is a building with a steeple. The world sees the building as holy. It is almost impossible to change the mindset of 7 billion, however, it needs to be realized that the church is different. As we explore this idea, notice that the church is different due to her worship. The church is different when we see her worship…

Grow in 2020

 In last week’s sermon, I challenged all of us, as a follow up to SPARK, to GROW in five specific areas with one of those areas being GROW IN KNOWLEDGE of God’s Word.  Proverbs 4:20-27 speaks about growing in knowledge which results in godly WISDOM. In the Bible, we find the recipe for right character, loving conversation, proper conduct, and lifestyle that can be applied to situations and decisions that confront us on a daily basis.  I can’t speak for…

What’s next?

Last week we wrapped up our 40-Days of Prayer campaign with the conclusion of a very successful Polishing the Pulpit’s SPARK so what’s next you might ask?  Follow-up is next!

Please pray for success in the follow-up process as I reach out to these folks.  Continued spiritual growth…

Blaze and PTP Spark Is for You!

Job said in Job 3:25: “That which I have greatly feared is come upon me…” As for us, those things for which we have painstakingly prepared are within reach. Blaze will be this weekend and PTP-SPARK will begin in one week. THESE EVENTS ARE FOR ALL OF US!!!  The theme of BLAZE is “Going Home”. We will study the desire we have to go to Heaven when this life is over. “Going Home” is designed for those of all ages.…

The Most Powerful Force in the World

 What is the most powerful FORCE in the world? Some might point to nuclear power, both as an energy source and as a weapon. Others would say storms and if you have lived through a tornado or a hurricane you might agree. Still, others would point to the destructive force of a flood as the most powerful force in the world.  Which one is correct? Actually, none of the above are correct. The most powerful force in the world is…

Faithful for Life

The faith of the Bible is seen very clearly in the eleventh chapter of Hebrews. We have renamed this chapter Faith’s Hall of Fame. We read about men and women who lived lives that point out to us the need for us to be faithful unto our Holy and Righteous God. Let’s take a few moments to understand faith. Faith is defined in Hebrews 11:1 as “the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” The…
