I am Jesus’ Little Lamb

You can also watch on our Vimeo page. The shepherd and his care for his sheep is one of the most beautiful and comforting images in the entire Bible. It pictures Jesus, the Good Shepherd, taking care of us, his lambs and sheep. Psalm 23, the Good Shepherd Psalm, is a favorite for many, many Christians. This is pretty amazing, considering that most of us aren’t familiar with raising and looking after sheep. Why is it that we love this…

Palm Sunday

You can also watch on our Vimeo page. Have you ever considered what Easter is really about? Beyond the flowers, eggs and chocolate, it’s the story of God’s love for you. This Holy Week, starting with Jesus’ Palm Sunday ride into Jerusalem, and the shouts of “Hosanna,” discover again the full story of God’s love, a love stronger than death. The Good Friday cross is not the end of the story, it’s where love changed everything, because this is the…

Is it worth the pain?

You can also watch on our Facebook page. Here is the reality: the love of God is connected to the cross, both His and ours! Jesus’ suffering on the cross was as real as the resurrection which followed it. The cross of the Christian is as real as the glory which follows it. In both cases, no cross, no crown! The Christian’s cross is any suffering that comes as a result of following Jesus. Join us as we ask the…

Godliness

You can also watch on our Facebook page. You’ve probably heard the phrase: “Cleanliness is next to godliness.” Is that true?

Godliness has to do with my attitude toward God and his Word and his ways in my life. Godliness has to do with God being at the center of everything I do. He’s the reason for everything…

God Cares for His Children – Christmas 1 Worship

You can also watch on our Facebook page. God cares for his children. That’s not new news. He cared for his nation – the Children of Israel, though they were rebellious. He cares for us, his adopted children – even though we’re sinners and don’t deserve it. God cared for us by sending his Son to deliver us from the corruption of sin and transform us into his children. The message of Christmas is still Christ’s coming that makes us…

You’re Invited!

You can also watch on our Facebook page. We have such a wonderful, amazing and incredible God. He’s so forgiving and patient, so thoughtful and caring. When God gives, and he always does, he gives his best. He never skimps and scrapes. So, if he invited you to believe in him and ultimately go to heaven and live with him, would you RSVP his invitation? Is there even a doubt? Sad to say, many reject his gracious and heartfelt invitation.…

To Forgive is to Forget
