    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.

    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.

    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.

    Restless Hearts – 1 Timothy 6:9-16
    It's not a new idea. If only I had more _______, I would be happy. (You fill in the blank) Our hearts are restless. But as St. Augustine puts it, God has made us for himself and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in him. Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.

    Becoming Very Real – Luke 16:1-13
    Jesus tells a very confusing story where he praises an unrighteous business man for using his shrewd tactics to place himself in a better position for making it through the failure of his business. Listen more carefully. He is actually getting himself right through repentance. That is what Jesus lifts up as becoming a real person. Pastor Frank Reeder preaches.
