Let’s begin the message this morning with a quick survey about how you wake yourselves up every morning. How many still use alarm clocks? How many use their cell phones? How many ask Alexa to rouse you from your slumber? How many use their grandkids? I’ve learned I can almost literally set my clock by […]

|Series: Waking the Dead||Preacher: Kevin Freeman||Date: July 8, 2018||Scripture Reference: Matthew 5:13-16|
Your salt-of-the-earth lifestyle produces consistent and potent good works that people can’t help but notice, and your light-of-the-world brightness illuminates God as the source of them. A lifestyle of distinct living as a follower of Jesus may get people’s attention – especially as you meet their needs in sacrificial ways – but they need the illumination of the Good News of Jesus to understand you’re not just a really nice person. And a lifestyle of sharing the illuminating message of Jesus is a must, but it will fall on deaf ears if people can’t connect it to the distinct, salty acts that reflect the love of Jesus.

|Series: Communion Meditation||Preacher: Mark Adams||Date: June 10, 2018||Scripture Reference: Luke 11:15-32|
A little over twenty years ago—back in the “olden days” when I was the Youth Minister—shortly after the invention of the wheel—back then we had a church member—a young woman—who was a social worker for Montgomery County. As part of her job she worked with teenage boys who lived in two group homes in our […]
|Series: Convictions That Connect||Preacher: Mark Adams||Date: June 3, 2018||Scripture Reference: Hebrews 11:1-6|
1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 2 – This is what the ancients were commended for. 3 – By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. 4 – By faith […]
|Series: Convictions That Connect||Preacher: Kevin Freeman||Date: May 27, 2018||Scripture Reference: Ephesians 2:4-9|
As we explore God’s saving grace – one of our “convictions that connect” – we need to ask two questions. First, do we understand God’s grace? Second, does it “wow” us? Our study will take us to the exciting truths about the role of grace in our salvation so that we can come away with a renewed passion produced by it.

|Series: Convictions That Connect||Preacher: Kevin Freeman||Date: May 6, 2018||Scripture Reference: Romans 3:21-26|
As we continue our series on “Convictions that Connect,” our study of the Five Solas, we come to the one on Christ. Sola Christus. Christ alone. The concept behind this sola is that our salvation was secured by Christ alone. That means that Jesus was exclusively the only one able to save us and that […]
