November 6: "Eager With Anticipation" By Pastor Steve

In Luke 27, Jesus answers a question about marriage and resurrection put forth to him by some Sadducees. In verses34-38 , it is written (NIV):
34 Jesus replied, “The people of this age marry and are given in marriage. 35 But those who are considered worthy of taking part in the age to come and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage, 36 and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection. 37 But in the account of the burning bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’[a] 38 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.”
In this sermon, Pastor Steve delves into the meaning of Jesus’ reply and concludes that, “No one has ever imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him. You know God is more than a great Creator and engineer who set everything into motion. The clear reason that we were made is to be in relationship with God. To be friends, to love and be loved…. So that we might receive the fullest measure of God’s love and Grace, and to give that love in return as God intended.”

October 30: "The Woman At The Well" by Guest Speaker James Snodgrass

This inspiring message asks you to look at a video clip from "The Chosen" series about the life of our Savior Jesus Christ. The clip is a dramatic reenactment of Jesus' encounter with the woman to whom Jesus first announced that he was the Messiah, a nameless woman who meets Jesus at a well in Samaria and who calls herself unworthy. She is described in John 4: 1-42 but we never know her name. Guest Speaker Jim Snodgrass' message brings these verses to life and offers the listener a personal connection as to why the woman remains nameless: she is representative of all of us. To make the most out of this message, search the internet for the video clip of "The Woman At The Well" featured in one of "The Chosen" episodes.

October 23: "Antidote to Pride" By Pastor Steve Baden

The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector, Luke 18: 9-14, is the focus of the October 23 sermon by Pastor Steve. What is our antidote to pride? Our Savior loved to tell stories to teach lessons on how to live a moral life and this story warns us of the old saying with roots in Proverbs 16: 18 that "Pride goeth before the fall." Jesus teaches that it is the humble who will be exalted. Pastor Steve's message expands on Jesus' teaching in these verses, which read (NIV):
9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’
13 “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’
14 “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”: .

October 16: "The Fighter Still Remains" by Pastor Steve

"The Fighter Still Remains" is a flashback to an old Simon and Garfunkel song titled "The Boxer" and dovetails into the parable of an old persistent woman and a bad judge as told by Jesus in Luke 18: 1-8. This wonderful sermon delves into the lessons that Christ hoped to teach his disciples: to hang on to Christian faith and to have perseverance in the face of adversity and life's trials. Christ's story of an old widow woman determined to get justice teaches the importance of not giving up but to pray unceasingly and to always strive for what is right and good. Pastor Steve noted that Jesus epitomized Christian determination and faith from the cross. Jesus Christ's final words from the cross, "It is finished," applied to our Savior's life and redeeming works as the Son of God. Our Savior fought unimaginable battles of the body, mind, and soul and encouraged us, through his teachings and example, to be determined and persistent in meeting life's troubles and challenges.

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.

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.
