When You Wonder Why

This week we will continue in our series on Joseph from Genesis 41:1-4. Faith becomes real in times of frustration, discouragement and disappointment.

This week we will continue in the sermon series on Joseph, from Genesis 39. Temptation is unavoidable, but the longer we wait to say “no”, the harder it is to do so.

Glory to God

This week we will continue in our study of Romans 15 by looking at verses 5-13. Do you ever wonder how many people drive through the streets of Baraboo or any other community and think, “Why are there so many churches in this town? Why can’t they just work together in serving the Lord?” Why […]

Words of Life

This week we will continue in our series on Romans 15 by looking at verses 4-6. Paul states that everything written in the Bible was written to teach us. So, are we teachable?

Care For One Another

This week we will be returning to Paul’s letter to the church in Rome. How can we be a body of believers that cares for one another? We’ll look at Romans 14:1-9 for answers. Every one of us comes into church sick and needy, looking for help with life. Church is intended to be an […]
