Our theme for 2014 is:

"Transform Our Walk . . . Transform Our World!"

 

SERMONS

“. . . There’s Jesus!”

Life is not always easy. There are occasions when life seems to be on a downward spiral. We cry out for help, looking for someone who can help us out of the disaster and turmoil in which we find ourselves. And then . . . there’s Jesus!

This sermon series is a 14-week series of messages that focuses on the lives of people, outside and inside familiar religious circles, who have a remarkable, life-changing encounter with Jesus. From the first Sunday of Lent, through Palm Sunday and the Passion Week and Resurrection Sunday to Ascension Sunday and then Pentecost Sunday, “. . . There’s Jesus!” will spotlight various people whose lives are forever changed to wholeness through the presence and power of Jesus Christ.

Proverbs 22:1 (adapted from NLT / NCV / GNT)


Scripture Text: Matthew 5:13-16 (NLT)
Teaching about Salt and Light
13“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.
14“You are the light of the world – like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 15No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
