Christmas Eve Sermons | Luke 1:26-38, 2:1-21 (Bernie & Jonathan)

Wise Speech | Proverbs 3:13-18

Before I was born, my parents bought a small chicken farm.            The people before us might have been successful at this but my father grew up in the city.                        He didn’t have a clue.                        But, that didn’t stop him.                                    He figured that if those simple people could do it, he could do it better.                                    So, he bought 500 baby chicks and the fun began.                                                Anyone remember the program, “Green Acres?”                                                            That was my…

A New Society | Ephesians 6:1-9

Have you ever received a letter from someone that was 4 or 5 pages? What do you do?  You read it right? Most of us would read the whole letter.

Discipleship 101: The Excitement of Being a Disciple | Philippians 3:10-4:1

God is With Us | Exodus 25:1-22, 26:1-6

When Pastor Jonathan asked me to preach on this section of scripture, I said, “no.”  This section of scripture is where when I first decided to read through the Bible that I stopped reading.  I knew that in order to preach on this I would have to start in the garden of Eden, forward to the tabernacle, then to the temple and then forward to Jesus and then point to the end of time. I would also have to study…
