One of our missionaries, Bill Jenkin III, is the guest speaker today. He introduces us to the apostle Paul from Acts 9. He teaches about Saul’s transformation to Paul and how the Lord used him in mighty ways. Bill gave 4 tips for reading scripture: 1- Read it like you’ve never read it before, 2 – Ask God to help you visualize, 3 – Ask God to help you understand it, and 4 – Ask God to help make application to our lives. Listen in this week, as Bill Jenkin III shares with us. Also a reminder to keep reading the book of Colossians.

Colossians 1:9-14

February 18, 2024

In this series, Pastor Nathan challenges us to read the entire book of Colossians to gain better understanding. He uses a picture of a tree showing roots that represent our beliefs and the leaves represent the fruits of our behavior. The stronger roots/belief will results in more fruitful behavior. Pastor preaches that God: 1 – adopted us, 2 – delivered us, 3 – transferred us. So we should ask God to: 1 – adopt, deliver and transfer them, 2- to help them know what to do, 3 – to help them do it. Listen in this week as we learn about how beliefs and behaviors go together in spreading the Gospel.

In the Scripture passage, we are reminded that Christ: 1- Died for our sins and then rose from the dead, 2 – Brought us together, and 3 – Gives eternal hope. So we are to mature in Christ. Listen in this week, as we look at how our beliefs affect our actions in the sermon series: Mature in Christ.

Matthew 19

February 4, 2024

In this sermon, Pastor Nathan teaches on Biblical marriage. Pastor teaches on the difference between trying and training and how they apply to marriage. The summary of the message is that God made you two people into one, so we should train for unity in marriage by: 1 – forsaking all others, 2 – connecting emotionally, 3 – finding a way to agree, 4 – opening up your heart. Listen in this week as we learn more about marriage.
