Current Series

Lost & Found Part 1

Luke 15:1-15 • January 27, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

There are many religious people who think that if they follow enough of the Bible they are better than others…and through their obedience to the Bible they will get into heaven. Many times those same people believe that God is impressed with their “righteousness”. In today’s message, Pastor Bill will explain that no one can follow enough of the Bible in order to get into heaven on their own…that’s why God sent Jesus - to make a way for everyone to get to heaven.

A Joyful Singing God Part 2

Luke 15:3-32 • January 26, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

I’m sure that everyone has had a story of losing something very precious and valuable to them…searching desperately for it…and then the great rejoicing that happened when that which was lost is finally found. In today’s message, Pastor Bill will show you the heart of God as he explains that just like Jesus celebrates when every person chooses to follow Christ; the people in these parables have a great celebration when some lost valuable is found.

A Joyful Singing God Part 1

Luke 14:12-15:6 • January 25, 2021 • Pastor Bill Gehm

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that God wants EVERYONE to come to heaven…even the evil and self-righteous people. But the Bible clearly says that Jesus was burdened for the self-righteous as much as for the “sinners”. In today’s message, Pastor Bill will explain that Jesus wanted those listening to Him to be able to see the heart of God, through His teachings. In this parable Jesus is the good shepherd, looking for His lost sheep…even the self-righteous…to bring them to heaven.

Luke 15:17-32 • January 22, 2021 • Bill Gehm

Do you celebrate and rejoice when people who have walked away from God, return to Him? Or are you jealous about the “freedom” they had and the “fun life” they lived before they came back to God? Although it can be easy to feel bad for yourself that no one is recognizing all of the good work and sacrifices you made for God, Pastor Bill will encourage you, in today’s message, to put aside your selfish desires for fame and recognition and instead rejoice over other people coming to Christ.

Have you ever noticed that when things are going bad in your life…issues at work, family problems, or a health crisis…that you tend to draw closer to God?

In today’s message, Pastor Bill will remind you to seek God in every situation – good or bad, easy or hard.

Gospel Confusion Part 1

Luke 13:18-24 • January 15, 2021 • Bill Gehm

There are so many different beliefs on how people can get to heaven – by going to church or practicing religious rituals, or just by being a good person. Unfortunately, some people even go to church, sing praises to God, and learn about the Bible but they are still not going to get to heaven when they die…why is that? As Pastor Bill will explain in today’s message, there’s only ONE way to get to heaven and that is by repenting of your sin and accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior.

Loosed By Jesus Part 2

Luke 13:1-17 • January 14, 2021 • Bill Gehm

Have you ever planted a fruit tree and then you were really disappointed when it didn’t produce fruit? Does your tree just needs some extra care…a little pruning, some fertilizer and more water? Or maybe it’s dead and you need to dig it up and throw it away? The same is true with the Christian life as you’ll learn today from Pastor Bill – if you’re life isn’t producing fruit like love, joy, peace, and other fruit of the Spirit…then maybe it’s time for God to do some pruning in your life.

Loosed By Jesus Part 1

Luke 13:1-5 and Mark 1 • January 13, 2021 • Bill Gehm

There’s so much wrong thinking in the world today…people often think that they are still alive because they’re a good person…or maybe they even think that nothing bad is going to happen to them. In the Bible, Jesus said that being good has nothing to do with getting into heaven or living longer. In today’s message, Pastor Bill will encourage you to not wait until tomorrow to get things right with God…because you might not have a tomorrow.

Peace on Earth??? Part 2

Luke 12:49-59 • January 12, 2021 • Bill Gehm

What does peace mean to you? Maybe you think of it in terms of a quiet moment by the beach. Perhaps you equate peace with your family all getting along and having no dissension for a time. What about when you think of peace world-wide? Well today, Pastor Bill invites you to a peace that comes within your own heart. It’s given by God, but it’s also a choice you make personally. Don’t wait for the world around you to get worse before you make that decision. God wants your heart now!

Peace on Earth??? Part 1

Luke 12:32-40, 49-59 • January 11, 2021 • Bill Gehm

If you were to survey the vast majority of the world, asking what they hoped for regarding the world around them, most people would say, “World peace.” Initially, this sounds like the most pleasant and optimal outcome, but today, Pastor Bill insists that Jesus came for more. Jesus came to bring peace in your heart and to establish peace on earth eventually, but in the meantime, choosing Jesus brings division. Are you ready to follow Christ, even if it causes a rift in your family or your friend group?

Rapture Ready...Living in the Future Tense Part 3

1 Thessalonians 4:17, Luke 12:29-48 • January 8, 2021 • Bill Gehm

When you think about children engaging with gifts on Christmas morning, you picture red cheeks flushed with anticipation and bright eyes awaiting the surprise hidden within the packaging. They’re excited to see what’s been prepared for them and can’t wait to unwrap the gifts that they’ve been wondering about. Now think about heaven being like this for each person…rewards and treasures that are beyond your grasp of what you know here on earth. Today, Pastor Bill helps you get excited for what’s to come.

Rapture Ready...Living in the Future Tense Part 2

Luke 12:29-48 • January 7, 2021 • Bill Gehm

There are investors who have a solid handle on the levels of the stock market. They know when it’s been a good day or if the market’s plummeted. There’s a sense of hope or reliance on a company’s durability and how it’s doing. Maybe there’s even a fixation or an obsession about how investments are rising or falling. A potential treasure is possible, but it’s on quicksand that could falter at any moment. Today, Pastor Bill implores you to have your treasure fixed on something that has a lasting footing.
