August 14: "Living With Hope" By Guest Speaker Pastor Ben Woods

Guest speaker Pastor Ben Woods spoke about the importance of hope and how it sustains us on the Christian walk. He wove scripture with stories of personal life experiences to illustrate how it is easy to pin our human hopes on the wrong things. Living in a world of instant gratification has made a God-centered life tough to realize for men and women of all ages, but especially challenging for the younger generations. It is critical to teach young Christians that we will all live lives in which there will be many troubles but that our true reservoir of hope comes from God. Pastor Ben concluded by noting that we all get discouraged at various times but lifting our arms to God in prayer opens the door to renewed hope, strength, and being bold in our walk with God. He ended by quoting various verses of scripture that guide us in "living with hope," including Romans 8:28, Philippians 1: 6, and other verses from the Old and New Testaments.

August 7: "Eyes of Faith" By Pastor Steve

Hebrews 11: 1 (NIV) teaches us that, "Faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." Examples of God working through regular people abound in the Bible. Pastor Steve noted that God works through both the weak and strong to change their minds, increase their faith, and to change the way they think of the impossible. This is true even today.

July 31: "When Enough is Enough" By Pastor Steve Baden

Pastor Steve noted in today's message that, "There is a God-shaped hole in every heart. We hunger to be known and loved by God." In Luke 12: 13- 21, Jesus advises his listeners that Christians are on the wrong track if they don't first choose God and invest in a faithful life. It is written in Luke 12, verses 15 and 20, to be on guard against greed, "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions... "You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?'"

July 24: "Our Open Window" By Pastor Steve Baden

Prayer is our open window to God. The scriptural focus of this sermon is Luke 11: 1-13. The disciples ask Jesus to teach them to pray. Luke 11: 2-4: One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.” He said to them, “When you pray, say: “‘Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread. Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.’”

January 2: "Don't Judge" by Guest Speaker James Snodgrass

"The Christmas Miracle of 1965" is the start of this wonderful and inspiring New Year Message. Speaker Jim explains the "miracle" of the Charlie Brown Christmas special and why it is important that we keep watching year after year: it is one of the only animated widely-broadcast mainstream TV Christmas specials that contains scripture about the birth of Christ. Sponsors thought it was doomed in 1965, with Linus quoting directly from Luke and the King James Bible. Yet, it was embraced and it still broadcast today. The second part of the message focuses on why Christians should not judge and the Bible passages that counsel us not to be judgmental. With evil and fearmongering on the rise, it is important for Christians from all walks of life and around our world to unite on the things we have in common and become a formidable force for good.
