Life can be messy and unpredictable. However, we can be comforted to know that our God is never caught off guard by our circumstances. Please listen with us this week as Pastor Kevin explores the extraordinary story of Christ’s birth, and discusses the encouraging truth of God’s plan amidst our mess.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. (Galatians 6:9–10)
In his final words to the Thessalonians, Paul gave a warning about who we as Christ-followers ought to align ourselves with, and the attitude we ought to adopt in light of Christ’s return. As Pastor Kevin wraps up this series, please listen as he unpacks Paul’s final admonition for God’s people to persevere to the end.
"We are to pray in times of adversity, lest we become faithless and unbelieving. We are to pray in times of prosperity, lest we become boastful and proud. We are to pray in times of danger, lest we become fearful and doubting. We are to pray in times of security, lest we become self-sufficient." - Billy Graham
This week we continue our walk through 2 Thessalonians. Prayer is essential for followers of Christ. And yet, as we wait for his coming, we can often become distracted by circumstances. This week Pastor Kevin encourages us to persevere in this important habit, in order to keep our eye on God, and see his kingdom come.
They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. (2 Thessalonians 2:1–12)
In our continued study of 2 Thessalonians, we will look into the bible predictions of concerning a great deceiver who will oppose God and his church. How will we identify this deceiver? How can we keep from being duped ourselves? These are desperate questions that we need to answer if we are going to be ready for the second coming of our Lord.
But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. (Matthew 24:36)
As followers of Christ, our greatest hope is the promised day of his return. Waiting for that promise to be fulfilled can be difficult. However, we know that we should not be caught off guard when the day comes. Please listen with us this week as Pastor Kevin discuss the position our hearts should take concerning God’s timing, as well as the signs that our eyes should be on the lookout for as we wait for our coming King.
So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. (2 Thessalonians 2:15–17)
This week we continue our study of 2 Thessalonians, and the meaning of Christian suffering. On this Reformation Sunday, please take a moment with us to remember the great spiritual battles that were fought by those who walked before us for the sake of the gospel.
If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. (1 Peter 4:12–16)
This week we continue our study of 2 Thessalonians with a serious but encouraging discussion about suffering. Please listen with us as Pastor Kevin expounds on the value of suffering, and the promises God makes for those who are persecuted for His name’s sake.
We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing. Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring. (2 Thessalonians 1:3–4)
This week we started a new series through the book of 2. Please listen with us as we learn to stand unshakable and unafraid as we wait for or Lord’s sure return.
“For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Mark 10: 45)
Please listen with us as we wrap up our series on the things that matter most. This week Pastor Kevin emphasizes the importance of the servant in God’s kingdom.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus. (Philippians 2:3–5)
In a country that highly values individuality, it can be burdensome to imagine living life wholly to serve your neighbor. Unsurprisingly, Christ’s vision for the future seems to turn cultural values on its head, for that is precisely what we are called to do. Please listen with us as Pastor Kevin continues his series on the things that matter most, and the importance of putting others first.
For we live by faith, not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7)
In continuing with his series on the things that matter most, Pastor Kevin has added faith on the list of our highest priorities. Whether in times of famine or plenty, our calling remains the same. Put your faith in God. Please listen with us this week, as we learn together how God can and will pull us through impossible situations if we only have the faith to trust him.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. (Philippians 4:6)
As we continue our new series on things that matter most, Pastor Kevin expounds on the indispensable need for prayer in our daily lives. Please take some time to listen with us, and learn the practical application of God’s word.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness...
In the land of the American Dream, it’s hard to comprehend a grander ambition than our own right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” However, the bible is forever challenging the flow of cultural idealism. It seems crazy to consider tossing our plans for life and happiness into the proverbial back seat, but Jesus was confident that to risk it all for him would be well worth it. If you are unsatisfied with your own version of the “American Dream”, we invite you to listen with us in our new series as we explore of the things Jesus claimed matter most in this world.
“Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.” These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites. (Exodus 19:5–6)
Fellowship is starting an exciting new Wednesday night study through each book of the bible. If you are interested learning about the history of our Christ, please listen with us as Pastor Kevin outlines the book of Exodus.
“Who touched me?” Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.” But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.”
Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed.
Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.” (Luke 8:40–48)
All you need is faith and Jesus. This seems like a simple message, and yet most of us get hung up on that first little word, faith. What must we do in order to hear “your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”? If this is a question you ask, we invite you to listen with us as Pastor Kevin discusses the circumstances, attitudes, and applications that lead to true faith.
…Jesus said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” And the blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, I want to regain my sight!” And Jesus said to him, “Go; your faith has made you well.” Immediately he regained his sight and began following Him on the road. (Mark 10:51+52)
This week we were rocked by the simple but profound message brought by guest speaker, Pastor Al Meredith. Please join us we dig deep into a story from the book of Mark, from which we can unearth three essential questions a believer must ask themselves in order to experience the life-changing power of Christ.
Join us as Missionary Matt Parsley shares how God has called him and his family to reach the Japanese people in Malaysia and how it is all of our responsibility to be fishers of men.
…And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith... (Hebrews 12:1–2)
This week we are wrapping up our series on the life of Elijah. Please listen with us as we study 2 Kings 2, and Pastor Kevin helps us uncover what it looks like to practically “fix our eyes” on Jesus.
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” (Luke 12:15)
We all struggle against the seductive call of greed. In a country where everything we could possibly want is at our finger tips, it is easy to get lost in the pursuit of toys, trinkets, and financial security. Even though God calls us to live an extraordinary life, cultural pressure to keep up with the Jones’s can seem overwhelming. So, please join us and Pastor Kevin in our continued study of the life of Elijah to learn what it takes to stand up against the worldly doctrine of gain.
Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. (Psalm 42:11)
If ever you have found yourself in a hole of depression, you will most likely discover that it is much easier to find a way in than a way out. What we often don’t realize, however; is that there are subtle signs providentially designed to warn us of the dangers ahead. Please listen with us this week as Pastor Kevin illustrates the signs and solutions of depression through the life story of the prophet Elijah.
