Synopsis: In this final message in this month's series of Christmas messages, we look at the birth of our Savior, the Lord Jesus. The main takeaway from this morning's message is simple, direct and sincerely expressed: We must come humbly to Him as He humbled Himself and came to us.
Synopsis: In part 2 of this series of Christmas messages, we look at the life of Joseph and the type of character he revealed as he faced difficult choices. God's work within him was evident without and seen by all who had a heart like his. Are you as sensitive to and surrendered to God's will as Joseph showed himself to be when God asked him to "trust and obey?"
Synopsis: As a continuation of last week's message, tonight we look at two veins of thought that flow out of a humble heart of trusting submission as it relates to the will of God--God's providential working in our lives.
Synopsis: Tonight's message is part 1 in looking at this 3rd request in the Lord's Prayer--"Thy Will Be Done." Unfortunately, the audio recording stopped towards the end of the message.

Synopsis: In part two of this Thanksgiving series, our pastor returns to Ephesians 5:20 to answer the question, "Where do we find the ability to give God thanks--especially when we don't feel like it, aren't in the mood to do so, or are just struggling with what we are facing in life?
Synopsis: Whether we are facing rough times or not, whether we have sustained hardships from personal losses this year or not, it's good for us to consider the question, "Where do I find the ability to give God thanks?" Especially if don't feel like it or am really struggling with doing so? This message is part 1 of 2 as this very question is answered from our text.
Synopsis: This message presents an overview of Zechariah chapters 9-14 and looks at the historical context, the flow of thought in its structure and the focus of its message of hope--Christ's coming. The opening verses of each of these two main sections supply us with the main life-related lesson of today's sermon.
Synopsis: Tonight we look at the fourth and final characteristic that the kingdom of grace and of glory share. It may surprise some of you that praying "Thy kingdom come" is in essence a request for Christ's second coming! Here's how that is so....
Synopsis: In this final exposition of Zechariah 8, we find the third component of this theme of God's blessing being developed. The question that is posed and answered from this text is this: what impact does God's promises for the future have on me today? What practical lessons can we learn and apply to our lives? Our text reveals the two-fold impact God's blessing is designed to have on us.
Synopsis: Tonight we look at the third shared characteristic of the kingdom of grace and of glory as it further explains and expands upon what it means we pray, "Lord, advance the reign of grace through Christ in us and hasten the full and final establishment of Christ's glorious kingdom." This encouraging message provides us with hope and motivation to pursue the privilege of being useful and usable in God's hands to advance His work!
Synopsis: In part 2 of our look into Zechariah 8, our pastor asks and answers the question, "How can we be assured that God's promises, which seem almost too good to be true, will actually come to pass?" It's almost as if God anticipated a skeptical view towards His claims with the question He posed in v. 6. The assurance of God's blessing would come in five different ways as our text reveals.
Do you really believe God delights to bless you if you know Him as your personal Savior? If you are skeptical, then today's message from Zechariah 8 is for you.
