"Blessed From The Inside Out" By Pastor Kent: 2/11/18
Pastor Kent delivered a message at the special Valentine's Service February 11 focusing on Matthew 5:8, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God." Pastor encourage those present to remember that being religious on the outside only does not do anything for us. He said it is important to remember that we are conversing with our creator when we are praying and to simply ask God for a new heart. As written in 1 Thessalonians 2-5, "For we know, brothers, loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words, but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction. You know how he lived among you for your sake." The video of the sermon is at the following link:
"You Get What You Give" By Pastor Kent: 2/4/18
"You Get What You Give" was the title of Pastor Kent's Feb. 4 sermon. This message was part five of a series based on the Sermon on the Mount--the Beatitudes. The first five messages in the series, delivered in January, focused on our relationships with God. The final sermons focus on our relationships with people. In speaking on Matthew 5:7, Pastor Kent noted that the starting point of being merciful is to experience and receive the mercy of God. "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy," states Matthew 5:7.
