September 10th News: Follow Me– The Baptism of Jesus

September 7, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Follow Me

Message: The Baptism of Jesus

This Sunday, we will look at the beginning of Jesus’ formal earthly ministry– his baptism.

As you read the accounts, ask yourself these questions:

  • Why did Jesus have to get baptized?
  • What happened and what does it mean?
  • Why did God say what he said?
  • What does it mean to me?

Also, reflect upon the verse that we focused on last Sunday (John 14:12):

Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

To prepare, read Matthew 3:13-17, Mark 1:9-11, and Luke 3:21-38.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Message: Greater Things

In John 14:12, Jesus says:

Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 

This is a pretty amazing statement by Jesus. What does he mean? Do we actually experience this? If not, how come?

As we begin this series, we are challenged to be open to the fact that Jesus calls us to much more than most of us experience.

September 3rd News: Follow Me– Greater Things

September 1, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Follow Me

Message: Greater Things

 

This Sunday, we will an new series called Follow Me. Over the next several weeks we will look at Jesus and how he lived his life. If we are, indeed, called to follow Jesus (and we are), we need to see what he did and how he did it.

In John 14:12 Jesus tells his disciples this:

Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

That is pretty incredible. And yet, how often do we feel like we are experiencing these “greater things”? If you’re like me, you’d like to discover what Jesus means with these words– and if it is really possible.

To prepare, read John 14:1-14 and come ready to have you view of your life and ministry expanded!

 

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

During the final 3 hours Jesus is on the cross, Jesus experiences the wrath of God. What does that mean? What happened? Why is it important to me?

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours That Changed The World

Message: Jesus on the Cross- The Wrath of God

 

This Sunday, we will finish our series about the last 24 hours of Jesus’ life.

In his last 3 hours on the cross, a cosmic transaction was made on our behalf. Jesus became sin and was punished in our place. We hear those words a lot in church, but what do they really mean? How did it happen? Why did it happen?

To prepare, read Mark 15:33-41, Matthew 27:45-56, Luke 23:44-49, John 19:28-30, and Psalm 22.

Thanks to Mike and Tasha Hasty for opening their home to us last Sunday after church and for all the great food everyone brought!!

 

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Jesus On the Cross-The Wrath of Man

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours that Changed the World

Message: Jesus on the Cross-The Wrath of Man

During the first 3 hours Jesus is on the cross, we see several interactions with people around him. In these, we continue to see evil and injustice, but also God’s glorious love.

August 20th News: Jesus on the Cross– the Wrath of Man

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours That Changed The World

Message: Jesus on the Cross- The Wrath of Men

This week, we will continue looking at the last 24 hours of Jesus’ life.

We are now with him on Golgotha- the site of his crucifixion. He will be on the cross for six hours. Sunday we will focus on the events that occur in the first three hours– a time one theologian has called “The Wrath of Man.” In spite of the pain, the evil, and the injustice, Jesus does incredible things.

To prepare, read Luke 23:33-43. You should also read Matthew 27:35-44, Mark 15:24-32, and John 19:18-27.

Many thanks to Dallas Stamper for preaching the last two weeks while we were visiting family and Michael Hasty for setting up the church.

REMEMBER:

We will have a potluck lunch after the service at the Hasty’s house. Bring something to share (if you can!) and join us. 

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Jesus and Simon of Cyrene

Series: Walking with Jesus– 24 Hours that Changed the World

Message: Jesus and Simon of Cyrene

As Jesus carries his cross to Golgotha, the Roman soldiers grab a man from the crowd to help. Simon of Cyrene met Jesus and his life, and the life of his family, was never the same. How does God work all things out for good? We get a glimpse as we see Simon carrying a cross with Jesus.
