Elijah: Standing Alone in Desperate Times

“Let us not glide through this world and then slip quietly into heaven, without having blown the trumpet loud and long for our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Let us see to it that the devil will hold a thanksgiving service in hell, when he gets the news of our departure from the field of battle.” (C.T. Studd)

Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. (James 5:17)

Do you ever doubt that you have the skills, wisdom, or faith enough to make an impact for God’s kingdom? Fortunately for us, God has a habit of using ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Please join us and Pastor Kevin as we observe the amazing life of Elijah and discover keys to living an extraordinary life.

Unlocked: Forgiven Fully, Forgive Freely

“I am convinced that multitudes of Christians who suffer from stress, depression, discouragement, relationship problems, and all sorts of other hardships experience these things because of a refusal to forgive.” (John MacArthur)

“How many times should I forgive my brother or sister…?” Matthew 18:21 The Apostle Paul struggled with this question, but it is a problem that disciples of Christ still grapple with today. Join us in a search for answers as Pastor Kevin talks about Christ’s response to the problems of unforgiveness in relationships.

Unlocked: Carefrontation

Unlocked: Carefrontation

If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that “every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.” If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector. (Matthew 18:15–17)

Listen this week as Pastor Kevin explains how people respond to hurt/harm, and that God’s Word gives us ways we can practice “carefrontation” with our fellow believers.

A Tomb With a View

A Tomb With a View

 Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”

So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. (John 20:1–5)

In this week's sermon, Pastor Kevin helps us to see life from the perspective of Christ's empty tomb.
