    A friend of mine was investigating his home heating system.  It was making a terrible squeaking noise.  Fearing a fan motor that was going bad he dissected the necessary components, cleaned them, put them back together and then hit the power switch. Nothing. Pilot would not lite.  Fan would not come on.  No hum.  No […]

    Unplugged.  There is a sense of transparency and honesty that comes when musical artists go back to the basics without modifying the sound or creating special effects.  There is something neat about getting back to the basics; all natural, simple, pure. Ours is a church that celebrates worship in song, unplugged.  While the song leader’s voice […]

  • Humility and ChildlikenessOctober 9, 2016 - 9:07 am

    When we contemplate what Jesus requires for His followers, humility is a key concept that underlies every aspect of our faith and hope.  For example, consider the following, personal questions: When I know that I am right, that means everyone else is _________________ unless _______________________________.

Love Your Enemies & Forgive

February 5, 2017 – As we follow Jesus’ commands in order to teach them to others there are no greater commands of Christ than to love (Matthew 22:36-40).  Our love extends to our enemies which necessitates an understanding of Jesus’ command to forgive.  Jesus says quite a bit about the forgiving culture among His people.  This recording includes communion and contribution comments by Eric Ramso during the service.  Click HERE to view the Dan Stevers video, “Love Is For Loosers” mentioned in the audio.

Righteousness Versus Hypocrisy

December 11, 2016 – Jesus commands His disciples to practice a righteousness that is genuine in contrast to that of the Pharisees which looks good on the outside but is filled with deceit and hypocrisy.  Our relationship to God is called to be genuine inside and out.  It’s not only about obeying the rules.  More importantly, it’s all about the condition of the heart!

Eternal Life: The Already, but Not Yet

December 4, 2016 – We sing the familiar songs of heaven in the bye and bye and we get excited about the thought of one day seeing God face-to-face.  Then there are the narrow door commands of Christ that cause us to question whether or not heaven will be a reality for me because I fall short of those commands.  Thankfully, Christ assures us that heaven is indeed a present reality for believers as well as a future reality; i.e., the already-but-not-yet promises assure us in our salvation in Christ.
