How About Some Respect

June 10, 2018

June 10, 2018 • Pastor Peter Van Dyke • Ephesians 4:29-32

One area where there seems to be a big change in this world, and not for the better, is in the respect that people show for and towards one another. I am of the conviction that respect is an important attribute in living out a Christ-centered life. The Bible has much to say about how we are to respect others in our words, attitude and actions because life is precious and every human being is important to God. This Sunday we will open God’s Word to see what the Bible has to say about the way God wants us to respect others. Remember, respecting others is not an option for the Christian, it’s a requirement. Read Ephesians 4: 29-32 in preparation for your Sunday worship.

Heaven or Else...

C.S. Lewis had this to say about the doctrine of Hell, “There is no doctrine which I would willingly remove from Christianity than this (Hell) if it lay in my power. But it has full support of scripture and, especially, of our Lord’s own words; it has always been held by Christendom, and has the support of reason.” We continue this week in our series “The Bible #nofilter” and you guessed it, we are focusing in on a doctrine of the church that does not receive rave reviews in our culture today. We will take a look at what the Bible has to say about Hell.

The Most Important Thing a Father Can Do

June 17, 2018 • June 17, 2018 • Pastor Dave Dick

As we celebrate Dad this week we will continue in our series, “The Bible #nofilter”. We will focus in on God’s design and definition for marriage with a special emphasis on the role of husbands and fathers. There is little doubt that God’s design for marriage is under attack today on many fronts. This week we will consider why this original design for marriage is so important and how defending it directly impacts our ability to effectively communicate the gospel.

Did I Say Something Wrong?

We live in a "sound bite" society and most people are making their judgments quickly and without a great deal of information or facts. The positions of the church are no different - people have been deluged by 30 to 60 second sound bites about what Christians believe regarding multiple issues. It is not surprising that many people do not know what to believe about God or the church today, but what is it about Christianity that seems to offend so many in our society? We will seek to answer that question this week as we continue in our series “The Bible #nofilter.”
