Sunday Sermon 4/26/20

This message by Dr. Ron Sheveland talks about two men who are joined on their journey by Jesus Christ after His resurrection. While temporarily masking His identity, Christ takes them through the Old Testament and explains how it all points to Him as the true Messiah who lived, died and lived again. Their hearts burn within them as they hear His teaching. May this ignite your heart as well!

This is our second sermon on Luke 24:13-35. Please read it along with listening to the story.

If you would like to give an offering, you can do it right on this site electronically.

You are also invited to join us in a ZOOM room fellowship time tonight at 6 pm. Send us your email address and you will be included.

Sunday Sermon 4/19

Hi everyone! We are still in our series on the biography of Jesus Christ. It is now Resurrection Sunday, and as two of his followers are walking home to their home in Emmaus, Jesus appears incognito to them. Before He reveals who He really is, He gives them a guided tour through the Old Testament and shows how it all points to a Messiah who would live, die, and live again. Himself! Up until now, these dejected disciples didn’t believe that a resurrection had happened. He will clear up their misconceptions, correct their vision and give them a resurrection of hope. Since this story is so packed with insights, we will have two sermons on it. Watch this one and then come back next week for another adventure on the way to Emmaus.

After you watch the sermon, please stick around and watch the dramatic re-enactment below it.

Finding Peace During the Pandemic

The Corona Virus Pandemic can cause worry and anxiety. How can you find peace and hope during these difficult days? In this video, Pastor Ron Sheveland interviews Scott Harrison, the director of Fresh Hope Christian Counseling in Cedar Falls, Iowa. His guidance is biblical and helpful.

Full Easter Service!

Happy Easter! Thank you for joining us here in our celebration of Christ’s resurrection. We are having a full service that includes hymn singing (please sing along!), special music, a choir and a message entitled, “He Lives!” May God use this to bless your hearts! We wish we could be together personally, but we are together in spirit.

THE FOOT WASHING: A Picture of Greatness

We are in a series of messages called the “Biography of Jesus Christ.” We now come to the Thursday of Passion Week. Jesus met together with his disciples in an Upper Room to celebrate the Lord’s Supper and gave some final intimate teachings. It all began with an audiovisual demonstration of true greatness.

My friend, Bill Oedemolen, describes this special day:

“Thursday in the Passion Week is often referred to as “Maundy Thursday!” The etymology of the term “Maundy” is debated, but it is most likely from the Latin “mandatum,” which means, “a command.” Jesus met with His disciples on Thursday of Passion Week to celebrate the Passover. Before they ate, He washed their feet – an act of humble and loving servitude. Then, He instituted the Lord’s Supper that we still practice today. Near the end of the meal, He exposed Judas as the betrayer. And after Judas was gone, Jesus gave a “New Commandment” (mandatum): “Love one another!” THIS is how people would know that they were his disciples – LOVE FOR ONE ANOTHER! Christians, your spiritual DNA has one distinctive – LOVE! You can’t test for it in a lab, but you can definitely observe it in a life!”

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35

I urge you to make this old chorus your prayer.

EASTER SERVICE

We have had a change of plans. THERE WILL BE NO DRIVE-IN SERVICE THIS SUNDAY. We will have our Easter service online at 10:00 AM. You can watch it here or on our FaceBook page. People raised some concerns and red flags so maybe we will do a drive-in at a later date. But here are some special BONUSES: Tomorrow there will be a Maundy Thursday sermon and on Friday there will be a Good Friday sermon. Then on Easter, we will have a full service that includes music, a dramatic video and a message.
