Savior

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus

What if there was no Christmas?

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: Fear, God with us, Peace, promise of Immanuel, Trust

In a particularly dark time, God gives an enduring promise and a truth for His people to live into. This promise is in the name Immanuel, God-with-us. A promise which finds fulfillment in Jesus. This story leaves us with the question, “In whom are we trusting?” Because God is with us, we can face difficult and discouraging times.  Text: Isaiah 7:1-8:10

Rejoice Always, Really?

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: anxiety, joy, nearness of God, Trust

The Covid-19 pandemic has us social isolating with no clear end in sight. Those unable to work are feeling stressed, those who are working–especially on the front lines in health care–are also stressed, but for very different reasons. As followers of Jesus we need more than ever to know that God is near. Because we are “in the Lord” we can rejoice. Really!  Text: Philippians 4: 4-9

What is wisdom? Wisdom is the skill of living life in a God-honoring way.

The Frustrations of Prayer

Speaker: Leon Hurst
Topics: Faith, God's goodness, Persistence, prayer, Trust

Jesus teaches us to pray boldly with the expectation that God our Father delights to give his beloved children all that is good for them. As we pray, we can be confident in the goodness of God. God’s timing can frustrate us, and yet it is an unexpected part of His goodness as we discover from the Israelites, Abraham and Sarah, Joseph and Elijah.  Text: Luke 11:5-13; 1 Kings 18

The account of the fig tree withering is a teachable moment for the disciples on the power of faith. What is faith? How is it pleasing to God? Fight the good fight of the faith.  Text: Mat. 21:18-22, Heb. 11:1-6, I Tim. 6:12-16
