May 8 Mother's Day: "Our Endless Hope" by Pastor Steve Baden

Luke 14: 13-35 was the scriptural focus for Pastor Steve's May 8 (Mother's Day) Service. The two disheartened disciples walking home along the Road to Emmaus did not initially recognize the risen Jesus Christ when he approached them. Heads down, they shared their hopes, which they considered dashed after Christ's crucifixion, that Israel was to be redeemed through the Christ. Only after they had walked and talked with their Savior, and then invited Jesus to dine with them, did they recognize the risen Christ. They had missed the point that the revolution they were waiting for had to do with their own salvation through the sacrifice of God's only Son.

May 1: Sermon for Third Sunday of Easter by Pastor Steve

After the crucifixion, Jesus Christ appears to his disciples over a period of 40 days before his ascension to Heaven. This sermon is one in a series of Christ's teachings during this time. In John 21, the risen Christ fills the nets of his disciples after they spend the night bringing in only empty nets--exhausted by hours of fruitless fishing . The Savior builds a fire on the shore by which to call them in and teach them, as well as warm and feed them at a time when the disciples are feeling disheartened and confused after Christ's crucifixion.

April 24: "Seeing With Our Hearts" By Pastor Steve Baden

"As the father has sent me so I send you," were among the first words of the risen Christ spoken to his disciples the first Sunday after Easter. Jesus came to visit the disciples in a room where the door was bolted against intruders following the crucifixion of Jesus. John 20: verses 19-31 were the focus of this sermon and the words of "Doubting Thomas" remind us all that by faith we know that God's love is always with us.

April 17: "Because He Lives" By Pastor Steve Easter Service

Christians are Easter people with the word "halleluiah" in our hearts and on our lips! Praise for our Savior's sacrifice for our salvation was apparent in the attitude of thanksgiving and joy as the congregation gathered together with Pastor Steve to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. As written in John 20: 11-18 "Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?” “They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” At this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realize that it was Jesus. He asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?” Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.” Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”). Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her.

April 10 Palm Sunday: "He Still Comes to Us" By Pastor Steve

Pastor Steve began the beautiful Palm Sunday service with a prayer. "We praise You, Lord, for the wondrous ways You have touched each of our lives. Today, we offer thanksgiving and praise in Jesus' name!" exclaimed Pastor during the opening of the April 10 message. The Palm Sunday message included historical scriptural information that touched the hearts of those in attendance. The Bible tells us that the coming of the Messiah "humble and riding on a donkey" was foretold in the Old Testament, but the difficult reality was that Jesus' message of truth and light was rejected that day in Jerusalem by the very people he came to save.

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.
