"Truthers, Lovers, and Liars" 2 John 1-11

Presented by Troy Skinner

June 18, 2017, 10:30 am

Christ's church is under attack! Spiritually attacked with questions. What is truth? What is love? What is the church, and what is it to do? In a world filled with "fake news" can anyone believe anything anymore? Can even God be trusted? There are those who challenge the faith of Christ followers by essentially asking, "Did God really say...?"
This is the state of affairs in the 21st Century. However, it is nothing new. This was the state of affairs in the 1st Century, too. The Apostle John wrote a letter to us, way back then. Okay, John might have had a different group of believers specifically in mind when he penned what we now call "Second John." But it is clear to contemporary readers that God had us in mind when this letter was written about 1,925 years ago.
Christ's church is home to the truth and to love. This is because it is home to Christ, Who is Himself truth and love. It is no wonder, then, that antichrist works to undermine Christ's church with lies and division brought into the church's midst by deceivers and false teachers. The people of God must beware, and remember what Jesus teaches His followers. This is what we will talk about on Sunday as we walk through 2 John 1-11.
Spoiler alert: Believers must be diligently on guard! But antichrist loses! Because Christ wins!

Looking for Rest (Psalm 62:3)

Presented by Jace Broadhurst

June 11, 2017, 8:43 am

This is a sermon that I don't really want to preach. It's a little too vulnerable for me, especially when I am planning to disappear for the summer. I want to talk about what I hope we are all looking for but what I am going to designate a considerable amount of time to finding. I want us to think about what rest really means and how we can be diligent in our search for it. Will you do me a favor? Will you meditate on these two verses today: Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him. (Psalm 62:5 NIV) Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you. (Psalm 116:7 NIV) That's it. Just read them again and close your eyes. Let them wash over you. Where does your rest come from? Do you know that He is truly good? If you are curious about this whole Sabbatical thing, this is the week to come and listen. I hope you will leave with answers and with a little bit of inspiration for the summer as well. I look forward to worshipping with you.

Standing Strong Amidst Persecution (Acts 14)

Presented by Jace Broadhurst

June 4, 2017, 10:30 am

Did you know that John says there won't be any cowards in heaven? That is a strong statement, and it should make us stop cold. Not because we are afraid of the dark or monsters or spiders, but because sometimes we are afraid to give out the good news. Acts 14 is about Paul who is plotted against, run out of town, and stoned to death. Well, they thought it was "to death" anyway. And he keeps going back; he keeps encouraging and testifying to the forgiveness of Jesus. I find this story and his witness totally compelling and I don't know about you but I am still lacking in boldness. You might even call me a coward.
Will you come this week and think about those who are persecuted for their faith, our call to boldness, and the wonderful grace of God that animates us in the world.

Everyone Needs to Hear This (Acts 13)

Presented by Jace Broadhurst

May 28, 2017, 10:30 am

Anybody else just tired of listening?
Listening to people tell you how tired they are, how busy they are, how they dislike this politician, how much weight they pressed, how much weight they put on, how great their dog is, how cute their baby is, how long they spent on the phone with Verizon, how much they dislike their hair cut . . . you get the idea.
I know, I am kind of a jerk. But people just talk and talk and talk.
Well, this week, Paul gets a little long winded as recorded in Acts 14, but he is talking about something we should never get tired of hearing. Even as Christians. He is talking about the good news of Jesus. This Sunday, you have the privilege of listening. It's not a privilege because Jace is preaching, it's a privilege because God has designated this method for his word to come to you this week. That is kind of cool. You get to hear the Word of God. I hope you are ready. I can't wait to share with you some things I have gleaned and to proclaim Jesus through it all.

PS. I am not really tired of listening to you (first paragraph). It was just a fun way to get into my topic
