The Gospel is Preached!

   Our church is eager to provide links to our weekly sermons (when technical issues allow us to). You can browse the selection below to keep up with the preaching ministry.  Lately we have started posting our morning services on live Facebook (10:30 CST).  Just click on the “watch” link below to be transferred to our Facebook page.  As always, you are more then welcomed to come and listen to our sermons live at 10:30 every Sunday morning.  The fellowship of worshiping together is no substitute for recorded sermons on an impersonal website.  We would love to see you live and in person.
  We are currently examining the word hope: What it means, how it impacts our lives, and how we can follow our Lord’s example of spreading that hope to those around us.  If you find yourself needing a bit of hope in your life, this is the series you need to click on.  Or download and listen; share them on Facebook; enjoy them as they change your life.  We also have many of the sermons from previous series like Tidings of Comfort and Joy, A Way through the Wilderness, Why Are We Here?, “____” One Another, Judging the Times, It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, and many others uploaded for your listening enjoyment.

    Knowing the Unknown
    The phrase "thief in the night" conquers up the unknown.  No one knows when the Lord will return.  But what if I would say to you that the Bible does not leave the unknown to the unknowable.  We can know we the thief comes if we are ready and watching.  Listen for how the Bible explains this in this message.

    One Hell of a Place
    Hell is not a place I like to talk a lot about, but it is a teaching throughout the Bible and a subject that was on the lips of Jesus on several occasions.  Hell is a real place.  Just as real as Heaven.  So learn what the Bible teaches about Hell.  Spoiler alert: Jesus did go to Hell when he died.

    Stories of Hope: Hannah
    The story of Hannah is the first story I found with the word hope used.  And I believe one reason for this is because of the name of God that Hannah depends on, the Lord of Hosts.  Hear more about this name and the lessons we can learn about hope from Hannah in this message.  Here is the link to support people in Ukraine through World Partners: https://wpartners.org/ministries/projects/world-partners-ukraine-relief-project

    Bite-Sized Hope
    Can we be hopeful all the time?  Probably not.  We all will probably encounter times when our doubts and fears overwhelm us.  But as we see in this sermon, God often gives us bite sized pieces of hope that we can grab onto during those time in order to bring us through.  And best of all, when we cling to these small hunks of hope over time can develop a habit of being more hopeful.
