Fresh Start Part 3
Luke 24:36-49 • May 6, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm
In our world, there is a lot of information going around. With the invention of the smartphone, TV, laptops, and tablets, the flow of information is never ceasing. This has its pros and cons, some of the cons include the spreading of misinformation. Many people throughout the internet have slandered the name of Jesus... But Jesus is an overcomer. No amount of slander or evil or anything can stop the truth of Jesus. If He can overcome death then He can overcome anything that this world can try to hurl at Him.
Fresh Start Part 2
Luke 24:36-49 • May 5, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm
In today's message, Pastor Bill will remind you Jesus didn't just do miracles, He fulfilled prophecy! All throughout the Old Testament, many prophets prophesied things about Jesus and things that Jesus would do. Jesus fulfilled every single prophecy and continues to do so to this day! The prophets said that Jesus would be born in a manger and He was. They said He would heal people and He did. They said that He would die a gruesome death on the cross for the sins of the world... And He did.
Fresh Start Part 1
Luke 24:36-49 • May 4, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm
Today, Pastor Bill will remind you that if you're a Christian, this earthly world is not your home. When we're born into the world, the world becomes our home, we become citizens of the earth so to speak... But as we progress through life, trying to make our own way by our own strength, we realize we need help. Jesus is always welcoming of anyone who is willing to receive Him... And when you receive Him, this earth is no longer your home. The Bible says that Jesus went to “prepare a place for you” in heaven!
Jesus Shows Up! Part 3
Luke 24:2-25:43 • May 3, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm
Today, Pastor Bill reminds us that we were formed in the image of God. Everything else on this earth was spoken into existence. We were formed by the dirt and breathed life into us by God Himself. Unlike any other part of creation, we have a soul that is meant to be with Him forever. Maybe you’ve never thought about it like that before. You’re more important to God than any other part of His creation. To be reunited with Him forever, you need only accept His gift of salvation through His Son Jesus Christ.

He came and conquered death for all of us and He will return in the clouds at the second coming. Join Pastor Bill today as he ponders the truth of Jesus’ superpower status. He’s a hero, but He also desires a relationship with you. He promises victory in the end, and His love and mercy in the meantime. What more do you need?
Jesus Shows Up! Part 1
Luke 24:2-25:43 • April 29, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm
God is your loving Father. He created man and walked with him in the garden until sin entered this world. But He was too kind and caring to leave us alone. He sent prophets, and Jesus, and men and women who wrote the Bible through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Pastor Bill reminds you today that reading and studying your Bible will lead to a deeper and more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. He’s not a fictional person or an abstract idea. He’s a man who walked this earth and died for you. Read your Bible and know Him.
The Right Data Part 2
Luke 24:13-32 • April 28, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm
Knowing the Lord and the Bible is a constant growing experience throughout one’s life. You never get to a point where you can say, “Yep, I know all there is to know about spiritual things and I can’t get any closer to my Savior.” Malarky. Not one person other than Jesus Christ, who is Himself also God, can make these claims. As Pastor Bill encourages in today’s message, step one is to accept Jesus as your Savior. Step two is to read your Bible. You can’t navigate this world apart from it.
The Right Data Part 1
Luke 24:13-32 • April 27, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm
God didn’t create us to then leave us alone, wandering aimlessly and confused about our purpose. He gave us the Bible as a reference point to guide us, lead us, and train us in the ways we should go. Join Pastor Bill today as he reminds you never to lose sight of this reference point. Without the Bible, you’d have no bearing for what is truth or fiction, right or wrong, God-based or man-based. Without it, you’d be lost in a sea of shiny, silver things constantly vying for your attention. Stick to the Bible and know the Truth.

Remember the big picture! If you lose your job, it’s not the end of the world. We go through trials, yet time moves on. Don’t forget to look to Jesus in the good times AND the bad.
