    He Shall Overcome – Isaiah 2:1-5
    The First Sunday in Advent. In a world torn apart by strife, many of us are looking for peace. We can try to negotiate it at the United Nations. But that's more like placing a band aid on a gun shot wound. Only Jesus can negotiate the peace we are talking about here.  This message is based in ancient Hebrew writings. Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.

    When Our God becomes Their God – Luke 23:33-43
     Christ the King Sunday concludes the church year. Our Gospel reading curiously directs us, not to a throne room, but to the cross where Jesus reigns over his very different kingdom. The way he suffered and kept loving and forgiving inspires others to follow him and declare him to be their king. Long live the King. Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.

    How do You Handle Betrayal? – Luke 21:5-19
    Jesus is getting ready for the cross, the day when he finishes his earthly work and seals the deal. With a depth of love in his heart for those who have followed him, he gives them a sense of what lies before them and how to handle the betrayal they encounter from even their families. Grace is the key and a commitment to keep loving  especially when it is tough. Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.

    The Aroma of Love – John 12:1-8
    When Mary opened the box of costly perfume to anoint the feet of Jesus, the aroma filled the house and got into every corner. It was the aroma of love. Pastor Ned Flexer is our guest preacher.

    A Personal Reformation – Luke 19:1-10
    Jesus meets people where they are and begins a process of remolding us into his image. Nobody is beyond his reach. But we can be a bit hardened which means we need to be made more flexible, even broken if that's what it takes. And he always does it with a generous supply of care. That's what he did with the tax collector, Zacchaeus. And that's what he will do with you. Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.

    Poured Out – 2 Timothy 4:4-6
    How do you measure success? Is it having lots of money, a well known name or oodles of Facebook friends? How does God measure success? Learning from Jesus, it may be doing the thing that makes us unpopular with the crowd and pouring our lives out. Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.

    A Must Read – 2 Timothy 3:14 – 4:3
    The Bible is a valuable tool for anyone who seeks to live the Christian life well. It is a book to be digested and put into practice. Followers of Jesus must read it and allow it to shape our actions. Don't just argue about the words of the Bible. Let it transform you until people see more of Jesus in you. Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.

    How Do You Handle the Truth? – 2 Timothy 2:8-15
    Many professions require a special license to certify that an individual is approved to practice. What about handling God's Word? Paul writes about the importance of study, not a simple "off the cuff" approach to interpreting the Bible. Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.
  • Oct 6, 2019The Gift of God That is in You – 2 Timothy 1:1-14
    Oct 6, 2019
    The Gift of God That is in You – 2 Timothy 1:1-14
    When we enter into a relationship with Jesus, his Holy Spirit gives us gifts to use to help the rest of the nBody pf Christ function at peak performance. Timothy was holding back. His father in the faith, Paul, encourages him to stir up the gift again and use it with power, love and discipline. What gift in you might need stirring up? Pastor Frank Reeder preaches.
