Peter’s Hook

This Sunday we’ll be continuing our journey through the book of Acts, looking at Acts 3:1-26. When Peter came across a lame man begging for money, Peter offered him something much better than silver or gold. Peter offered this broken man not only the ability to walk, but eternal life through Jesus Christ. This world seems […]

Focus

This Sunday we will look at the early church and see how we compare two thousand years later.  Sometime this week read Acts 2:42-47. What an exciting time to be a new believer!  These people loved God passionately, which compelled them to see everyone around them with God’s eyes. They were eager to help, willing […]

Some Strong Preaching

This week we will pick up our Acts Sermon Series with Acts 2:14-41. This is Peter’s first sermon and it’s a powerful demonstration of a man filled with the Holy Spirit.  This is the same man who less than two months earlier denied knowing Jesus three times. This is the same Peter who abandoned the […]

It’s All Grace

This week we will be veering away from our Acts Sermon Series for a special message to the 2016 Confirmation Class — all 17 of them! I will be sharing Romans 4:1-25.  This message isn’t just for the class of 8th and 9th graders, though. Maybe you are worn out from trying to be good […]

Transition Time

Transitions are part of life.  In Luke 24:50-53, the disciples are asked to transition from being observers to being participants.  We’ll look at this final passage from Luke’s gospel this Sunday. God also asks us to transition — from being students to being witnesses, or teachers.  When we step into a new challenge it takes us […]

Shazam!

This week we will be looking at Luke 24:36-49, where the resurrected Jesus appears to His disciples. The account of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead isn’t just for Easter Sunday.  It is a vital message for every day of our lives.  It is our strength in times of trial. It is our assurance in times […]

Unforgettable

This week we will be joining two disciples who walked with Jesus on the road to Emmaus.  Check out Luke 24:13-35 sometime before Sunday! What would it be like to be in a Bible study with Jesus as the teacher? “And beginning with Moses and the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in […]
