A Letter of Encouragement
Paul & Demas
April 29, 2018 • Mark Galvan
"What God is pouring into you is far greater than what you are pouring out." Paul was poured out like a drink offering, and Demas departed from the faith. When we keep our eyes on Jesus, He will keep us from departing from the faith and will continue to pour into us so we can be poured out like Paul.
Last Words "Preach the Word"
April 22, 2018 • Mark Galvan
Paul serves as a great example of one who was faithful to fulfill his ministry. To his last breathe, he preached the Word and did the work of an evangelist. We are reminded that preaching the gospel is not our recommendation, but our responsibility.

Paul the Apostle writes to Timothy and emphasizes the importance of remembering Jesus daily. Remembering Jesus may seem like a simple idea, however Paul mentions this during a time when Timothy was pastoring the church of Ephesus and was dealing with false teaching and persecution. We must remember Jesus during the good and the bad; the easy and the hard.

In this message, Paul the apostle exhorts Timothy to pass on what he has been given. God's truth is not subjective to culture or time, but is enduring and eternal. We must hold on to God's truth, this truth is woven into a pattern. The pattern of God's truth helps the believer discern what is, and isn't sound truth.
Preparation for Last Day's Ministry
January 21, 2018 • Mark Galvan
In this message, we are introduced to the book of 2 Timothy. Paul the Apostle is imprisoned and awaiting his death, however prior to his death, he writes a letter of encouragement to Timothy. This letter was written as a source of encouragement and direction for Timothy to minister in preparation for the Last Day's, therefore it has direct application to the Christian.
