Keep Fight the Good Fight of Faith

Slaying Our Giants
May 5, 2019
When you think about your life of faith, what comes to mind? Perhaps you think about prayer, or worship, or the really wonderful moments – the times of great joy and celebration. I’m sure if you think long enough, you can also think of some moments throughout your journey of faith that haven’t been so wonderful.
This week, we’re starting our new sermon series – “Fighting the Good Fight of Faith”, where we’ll be talking about this journey, and what keeps us going throughout our lives. Sunday, we’re looking at the story of David and Goliath (found in 1 Samuel 17:32-50), as we talk about what it means to encounter and slay the giants in our lives.
Running the Race - Keeping the Faith
May 12, 2019
What does it mean to you to “run the race, keep the faith, and to finish the course”? (II Timothy 4:6-8). Today we will look at Paul encouraging his spiritual son Timothy to fan into flame the gift and calling God placed in his life and facing the giants that comes along in doing so. Paul ends by talking about the importance of finishing the race and keeping the faith. That is a great goal for every follower of Jesus and one I hope to emulate as well.
We Are More Than Conquerors! Youth Sunday
May 19, 2019
Do you feel like a conqueror in your life? Or, do you feel like you are being conquered? The good news of the gospel is, we are more than conquerors in Christ!
This Sunday, we’ve got a lot to celebrate, as we recognize our high school graduates, award scholarships and Samaritan awards and more, and worship together! Best of all, our youth will be leading us, through drama, music, sermon and more.
Join us at 8:00, 9:29, or 11:00, as we look together at Romans 8:29-39, and hear, see, and experience how we are more than conquerors in Christ!
We Never Fight the Good Fight Alone
May 26, 2019
This Memorial Day weekend we wrap up our sermon series on “Keep Fighting the Good Fight of Faith”. I want to begin by saying thank you to all the military men and women who have sacrificed that we might have the freedoms we have today. We honor them and their families. This month we have talked about how we face our giants, that we are encouraged to run our race of faith and to finish well, and that we are more than conquerors through Christ. This week, we see in the story of Elisha and his servant that there are more with us than against us. The King of Aram grew frustrated because he was wanting to raid towns and villages in Israel except when he would get there the King of Israel had already sent his army to guard the city. How did the king know to do that he wondered? Did he have a traitor in his midst? No, God spoke to Elisha who informed the King of Israel. So, the king of Aram comes hunting for Elisha in Dothan. In the morning when they awoke Elisha’s servant looked up and saw an army surrounding them and feared there was no way out. Elisha asked that God would open the servant’s eyes. What do you think he saw?
