Message: “Your Prayers Have Power” (James 5:13-18) – Our prayers impact the actions of God. Our prayers matter to God because we matter to God. Thankfully, we are never without hope because we are never without prayer.
Message: “Heirs of God” (Romans 8:14-17) – We are “heirs” of God and co-heirs with Christ!
Message: The Devil’s Days are Numbered (Ephesians 6:10-18) The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet (Romans 16:20). What a promise! Our struggle with evil is real. First step dealing with the reality of Satan and the world of evil is to acknowledge that it's real and threatening to us.
The Message: “The Icon of God” (Colossians 3:1-14) – We were created by God in the image of God so that we might reflect the glory of God. The truth is this: You and I are an “icon” of God because we, as human beings, were created to be more like God than anything else God made.
Message: “Believing and Building” (Matthew 7:24-27) – When it comes to living our faith, it is vital that we believe that the promises of Scripture—the Words of God—are true and trustworthy. If we believe the word of God, then we can build our lives upon the foundation of Jesus Christ.
Message: “Star-Struck Worshipers” (Matthew 2:1-12) – We gather on the first Sunday of 2019 confessing our belief that the Lord is always with us and for us. The story of the “magi” functions as a narrative for all those who would come to Jesus and be star-struck by his majesty.

When Love Was Born
Message: “The JOY that Saves” (Luke 2:8-14) – As Christ followers, we have every reason to be full of “joy.” This season of Advent is pregnant with anticipation as we embrace the wonderful gift of God’s joy—the joy that saves—given to us in Jesus Christ.
Message: “The PEACE that Saves” (Luke 2:8-14) – Peace, perfect peace…. A central task of Advent is to pursue peace with God and with others. We can do this as we embrace each and every moment with gratitude for the gift of God’s salvation.
Message: “The HOPE that Saves” (John 3:16-17) – These 47 words affirm God’s promise to “save” and, therefore, inspire HOPE for all of us again today. The season of Advent begins with a focus on HOPE as we celebrate the story of God and the HOPE that saves.
Message: “C.A.L.M.” (Philippians 4:4-8) – The prescription for “calm” is simple this: “Worry less and trust more.” As Max Lucado notes, “Life still gives lemons. Life gives lemons to good people, bad people, old people, all people. Life comes with lemons. But we don’t have to suck on them.”
WE CELEBRATED "BURNING THE MORTGAGE" ON NOVEMBER 18TH DURING WORSHIP. PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW!
The Message: “Thank You, Lord!” (Luke 17:11-19) -- Meister Eckhart (13th century German theologian and mystic) is credited for saying: “If the only prayer you ever say in your life is ‘Thank you,’ it will be enough.” The story of the Ten Lepers reminds us that we have many reasons to say “thank you”
Message: “Cling to Christ” (John 15:1-8) – Regarding our faith, the key to success is not found in our ability to achieve anything but by our humility to receive everything. If we cling to Christ, i.e., “remain” in him, then we will bear much fruit and prove to be his disciples.
