OBEDIENCE At last Wednesday’s Bible study, Pastor Bill cited Philippians 1:16 where the Apostle Paul said, “I am put here for the defense of the gospel.” The pastor then looked up and said, “We are called to be obedient, not to accomplish results.

A CHRISTIAN’S ONE FOUNDATION Pastor Bill gave an illuminating word picture last Wednesday evening at a Bible study on Ephesians 4.

ARE YOU A TELESCOPE FOR GOD? Pastor Max delivered a sermon on telescopes last Sunday. “A telescope brings that which is far away close. We are to be telescopes for God, to bring Jesus closer to those who only see Him from afar.” Who are those who only see Jesus from afar? They are your […]

VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL Pastor Max preached several weeks on Ecclesiastes. Last Sunday he concluded the series with an illustration that locked in the message he was trying to get across. There is a vertical line that reaches upward and represents your relationship with God. And there is a horizontal line sideways that represents your relationship […]

WHEN THINGS GO WRONG Sometimes in our lives things are so bad they can’t be fixed, like a car spinning out of control on a sheet of ice. What are we to do? Pastor Bill gave three answers to this question in his sermon last Sunday. Seek the presence of God. He is your fortress […]
