Foretold – Part 2

Pastor Donnie Johnson took a look at the second of three predictions that Jesus made about His own death and resurrection in our Sunday series, “Foretold.”

Foretold – Part 1

Jesus foretold of his death and resurrection. Peter’s response was two fold 180° apart. How do we respond? Pray, Read Scripture and Fellowship!

Oikos: Biblical Wisdom for Marriage & Home – Part 4

Parenting is hard …. and rewarding. Ephesians gives us a great guidelines for both parents and children (obey, honor, respect, guide, encourage…). We are all adopted into God’s family and through our adoption there is healing for wounds and mending where there is brokenness.

Practicing the Presence of God – Part 5

Similar to the church in Ephesus, we all drift from our first passions. John gives us all a good reminder in his letter of Revelation, that we need to remember our passion for Christ, repent from our hardening heart and return to to the practices of love.

Practicing the Presence of God – Part 4

Where is the Church in Jesus life? Good question, since Jesus only says the word twice. But when He talks about the Church, it is very weighty. We need the Church – to grow, to learn, to love each other. The Church needs us – to encourage each other, to help each other. The Church was born in song, it is an act of worship and God blesses us through the Church as we bless others.

Practicing the Presence of God – Part 2

How do we live life in God’s presence? We need to know that God speaks, and we need God’s Word more than food. God’s Word is precious. Actively put yourself in Jesus’ path by reading His Holy Word.

Christmas Presence – Part 4

How does one live with the presence of God now; now that you are holy, set aside, and meant for a special purpose? Live as you are the temple of God. The fire of the Holy Spirit lives in you!

Christmas service

Since the fall, God has been working his plan on redeeming humanity and reuniting his relationship with us. Jesus’ incarnation is pinnacle of his plan. God came to earth and dwelt among us. Now we all have access to a relationship with the creator.

Christmas Presence – Part 1

One of the most powerful pieces of the Christmas story is the phrase “God with us.” This is an amazing thought! Though humanity first hid from God’s presence He continues to draw nearer and nearer to his people. The story of God coming to be with us is powerful. Living in God’s presence is where we find true fulfillment and joy.

Faith in a Time of Unbelief – Part 4

Elijah’s expectation of Israel’s response to the slaughter of the prophets was met with a harsh reality. He went from a mountain top moment to running for his life. The LORD comes close, encourages and guides him again.
