In the Book of Philippians there’s a brief but pointed message to two godly women, Euodia and Syntyche. Paul “implored” them to get their relationship right! So what goes into making relationships work? This message has some great directives from the Bible to help in any and all relationships.
After last week’s mass shooting in Las Vegas we needed to talk about the subject of anxiety. The news and our instant access to it can make us all jittery, even obsessed with what might go wrong. Are there disasters waiting around the corner? And what about my normal worries? Is there a way to deal with this that’s real and helpful? God does have a very potent answer.
In our third of three sermons on covenant, we look at the covenant we have with one another as members of Christ’s body. God loves us and sees us as individuals, but He has also created us to function as members of a committed community. We can never be truly spiritually mature in isolation!
This second message in a series called “Promises, Promises” is also about covenant, but with a different twist. We’ll compare covenant, contract and promises and find that each has its place in our lives now. We’ll also find out what David and Jonathan did in regard to covenant and how what they did means a great deal to us.
This is part one of a three part series on the subject of covenant. That probably sounds too theological or boring or just unfamiliar, but covenant, or the lack therof, is the primary reason for mistrust, brokenness and trouble in our world. Find out what covenant means, how it’s supposed to look and how to restore or make one and find new security and trust.

He wanted to prepare them, telling them in advance what would happen, so that they could have a proper response and have peace.
We all have our perspectives about our pasts–good or bad. But few of us have God’s perspectives on our futures. Find out what He says about our futures, what we’re promised, and what God is asking of us!
Pastor Ian gives us the report on how the Romania Mission Trip went and the realization he came to during his travels.
This is the end of a three part series of messages taken from the Old Testament Book of Nehemiah. In this series we have asked three questions: Do I care? Do I trust? And now today, Do I work?
The amazing events of Nehemiah are undoubtedly powered by the Lord Himself. But f we’re honest we have to ask ourselves, if someone didn’t actually do the work and make the sacrifices, would this rebuilding effort ever have happened? Find out if God actually needs us. And I say that reverently…
