God gave us two special ways to celebrate our salvation, regularly. These are called 'ordinances'. Pastor Scott taught us what these are, what these are not, and then we got to participate in them!
Was it David's physique that got him chosen to be the king of Israel? Certainly not, though he had serious strength and skills in protecting sheep. God chose him because of his heart - and we ought to remember this when we want to be used by God!
Pastor Scott set the stage for our new series on David. We were reminded that even though there were 66 chapters of the Bible devoted to the life of David - the real Star of his life, is God! The real Star is always God.
Wally Rose brought us a sermon on waiting on the Lord. I don't think any of us are particularly skilled in this area--especially in the fast-paced world that we live in!
Pastor Eric brought a challenge to us from Galatians 5, related to the freedom that we have from a religious system. The Judaizers were trying to add extra "steps" to the gospel, which was WRONG - but sometimes we are tempted to do the same thing!
We enjoyed having Mark and Sophia Self with us this week, and also our Skype interview with the Compton family. We also got to worship God together, and watch the Day Camp video!
Pastor Scott shares with us the only offensive weapon that we have - the Sword of the Spirit, the Bible. But it's enough! Father's Day is the perfect day to talk about how the Word of God is our offensive weapon against the crazy things happening in our world.
Pastor Eric gave a challenge to our 2021 High School and College graduates, and we all celebrated what God has done, in bringing them to this place!
The helmet of salvation is the same as the shoes of the gospel, right? Pastor Scott taught us all about the helmet of salvation - and it's not all about your profession of faith, either!
A shield...that sounds really heavy. I don't know if I have the strength for this piece. Pastor Scott explains the importance, and how we should not go to battle daily, without it!
