Christmas Day Message

Leave a comment

What do you think of Christmas – BIG presents? FLASHING lights?  Think again.  Our Savior came into this world in a manner that was neither big nor flashy. His mother was a humble commoner in a no-name village.  His birthplace was in a manger where they kept the animals.  No, Christmas isn’t about flash and dazzle or about pomp and circumstance.  Rather, it’s about our Lord’s willingness to embrace the despised and lowly things of this world and to work in ways that may be hidden to us, but that truly glorify Him!  Click Here for the Audio of this Christmas Day Message.

Deacon Brent & I Discuss 8/10 sermon

Leave a comment

On August 10th, we began a new sermon series: “POWER TOOLS.”  Our first “Power Tool” was the verse

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Do you feel strong when you are weak?  It doesn’t seem to make sense, does it?  Click on the link below and hear Deacon Brent and I discuss this topic!
