Synopsis: As the Corona virus continues to sweep across our nation, it has turned our lives upside down producing much uncertainty. In the midst of all this, the personal difficulties many have been facing continue! How do we handle these times of uncertainty? Psalm 46 teaches us that our security is rooted in what God is and what God does---His person and work. Here are three truths about our God that encourage us to find our security in Him.
Synopsis: Today's message is part of the online video broadcast that took place from our church which has suspended public worship services until the Corona Pandemic is no longer a serious risk to the welfare of all those who attend our services.
The question raised twice in 2 Kings 6 is the same question many are asking as they face unprecedented circumstances and an uncertain future--"What Do We Do Now?" God's Word turns our focus where it needs to be -- upwards in reliance upon Him as we prudently and responsibly move forward. Two answers are given to that question that are instructive for us today.
Synopsis: Times of uncertainty are always difficult to handle. With the Corona virus spreading and with other uncertainties we face, we certainly don't live in days that lend themselves to peaceful living! So how do we handle these times of uncertainty? How do we experience peace rather than panic? This passage offers great hope and encouragement to us!
Synopsis: In recent days there has been a lot on the news and on social media about the Coronavirus and the national and international impact it has been having.

Synopsis: Isn't it amazing how even how a person whom many would call today, "godly," can still struggle with doubt and unbelief in God's message when it seems to counter reality as we understand it in our circumstances? Tonight's message challenges us to either choose to stand in the presence of our fears, our doubts or our unbelief or solidly on the promises of God and in the presence of God.
Synopsis: Ever hear someone say, "The Devil made me do it!" or "I couldn't help it!" or "It was so-and-so's fault that I responded wrongly..." etc.? We come up with all kinds of justifications for our wrong attitudes and actions, but if we are to deal successfully with temptation, we must know the truth about it. That truth is found in our text today and so is the much needed help in dealing successfully with it.
Synopsis: "When we get to Heaven, God won't ask us how much we know. He will ask us about what we did with what we knew." After a video presentation about a new Spanish ministry, Pastor Phillips shares a message exhorting us to touch the lives of others for eternity. From Matthew 9:35-38, he presents three motivations for missionary involvement.
Synopsis: Tonight's message continues where the last one ended. Your mind is your battleground and you are your own worst enemy. We don't have to think in ways that are characteristic of the unsaved man's nature: at salvation we were given a new nature and so can learn to think a new way. From which closet are you pulling out what you mentally dress yourself with--the unsaved man's or the saved man's?
Synopsis: In tonight's message, three pictures of the Christian life are presented--farmer, athlete, and soldier. In particular, this message focuses on the last of these images and challenges us to recognize who our greatest enemy is with which we are engaged in conflict.
