Door #1 or Door #2

Sunday, November 11, 2018

Rev. Steve Kramer

Making decisions is an important and often difficult part of life. We want guarantees. Christ's followers need to be good choosers when faced with doors of opportunity. Let's learn how to determine what is best so our love for God and one another might overflow. 


The Open Door - Sunday, November 4, 2018

Sometimes God opens doors to us, which lead to an adventure we never anticipated. These doors can take us in directions and to exciting places we never dreamed of.  When God opened a door to Abraham, he entered and thereby set into motion God's rescue plan for the world. Join us as we learn to recognize open doors from God and know when to enter them. 

The Contest of Gods - Sunday, October 28, 2018

Where do we derive our security, our purpose, our motivation in life? Where is the pure object of our affection focused? Our message this week takes a trip to Mount Carmel in Israel and a contest of gods between Baal of the Caanites and Yahweh, the God of the Israelites and the prophet Elijah. It is the type of story that leaves us asking, What do we really believe?

How to Have a 3 a.m. Friendship - Sunday, October 21, 2018

With all the loneliness in the world, sometimes we need a special friend with whom we can openly safely share our most intimate thoughts. Someone who is always there when we need them with encouragements and affirmations. We need God with skin on. 

The Early Church Did . . . - Sunday, October 14, 2018

Prayer is a gift given to us from our great God, a privilege. It means we can connect with the Creator of the universe, and it is an important part of our walk with Him. Let’s look at an incredible New Testament story that reveals the power of prayer among believers in Christ.

Nehemiah Did - Sunday, October 7, 2018

Is prayer your first impulse or last resort? The story of Nehemiah is one of restoration, but also one of faithfulness. It was written for workers in God's Kingdom - the Church - and offers us great advice when facing overwhelming problems and odds. 

Does Jesus Care? - Sunday, September 30, 2018

How is your prayer life? Prayer is the language of faith and a privilege of intimacy with the Lord of the cosmos. God is in the business of erasing our naughty deeds and restoring us and transforming us. He does not want to leave us stuck in the same destructive patterns of our sin and shame, but desires to maximize our created best potential as His beloved children.

How to Be Great - Sunday, September 23, 2018

As human beings, we seem to be fascinated by the subject of greatness.  We talk of greatness in the world of sports. Historians talk of great statesmen, great Presidents.  In entertainment, we argue over who are the greatest actors or movies or bands of all time.  In our story for today we find Jesus giving His take on the subject of greatness. 

Following Jesus Means Denial - Sunday, September 16, 2018

It is music to our ears when we hear someone say to us, I'm all-in! Jesus, also, wants to hear and see this all-in attitude from His followers. He calls us to "take our our cross" - deny ourselves - and follow Him, which requires a very high commitment on our part. Let's talk more about this cross we must bear and the benefits of doing so in our message. 

Will God Really Give Me a Cadillac If I Ask? - Sunday, September 9, 2018

If you ask theologians what the most misused verse in the Bible is, many of them will likely reply it is Luke 11:9 – “Ask and it will be given . . .”  As with any Bible verse, it can be lifted out of its specific context and made to fit a particular theological slant. However, that is a dangerous thing to do. Join us as we discover the context and story behind this popular verse.
