 Date: Sun, Nov 15, 2015       Teacher: James Slone       Series: Honor the Lord
 Passage: Proverbs 3:9
Although the agricultural context of the first fruits offerings described in the Hebrew Bible is rather foreign to most of us today, the principles behind those offerings still have validity, they and teach us important concepts about how we give and how we handle everything we have, especially our money.
 Date: Sun, Nov 08, 2015       Teacher: James Slone       Series: Honor the Lord
Did you know that Paul wrote a "fundraising letter?" It's there in the New Testament, tucked away in 2 Corinthians, chapters 8-9. He was taking up a collection to help the poor among the believers in Jerusalem. He began the letter by telling about the Macedonian Christians, about how and why they gave.
 Date: Sat, Oct 24, 2015       Teacher: James Slone       Series: The Parable of the Lost Sons
 Passage: Luke 15:20 & Luke 15:28
Jesus' parable of the man who had two sons in Luke 15 draws a picture of what the Lord wants the church, and that means individual Christians who make up the church, to be like, like the father in the story.
 Date: Sun, Oct 18, 2015       Teacher: James Slone       Series: The Parable of the Lost Sons
 Passage: Luke 15:25-30
In Jesus' story of the man who had two sons, we find that the elder son who had stayed at the father's house was actually just as lost, maybe even more, so as his brother had been when he was in the far country. Sadly these elder brothers who stay in the church, follow the rules, and work hard often define what a Christian is like in the minds of many people, deceiving themselves as what s Christians is like in the minds of many people, deceiving themselves as well as others as to what true Christians attitudes and behavior really are.
 Date: Sun, Oct 11, 2015       Teacher: James Slone       Series: The Parable of the Lost Sons
 Passage: Luke 15:25-26
There are three parables in Luke 15. The last one (Luke 15:11-32) tells the story of a father and his two sons. This short story has lots of lessons and a powerful presentation of the gospel. In this series of sermons, we will ask the questions, "What kid of church are we?" "Are we more like the elder brother or like the father when the lost come home?" In other words, "Are we The Church of the Elder Brother or the Church of the Father?"
 Date: Sun, Oct 04, 2015       Teacher: Jon Carrell      
 Passage: Luke 10:38-42
Imagine how exciting it would be to have Jesus come to your home. After you came down to Earth, how stressful would it be trying to get everything ready? What work would you need to get done?
 Date: Sun, Sep 27, 2015       Teacher: James Slone       Series: Psalm 23
 Passage: Psalm 23:6
The last phrase in the 23 Psalm is a confession that includes both determination and assurance. Let's take a look at two words that will help us understand that confession
 Date: Sun, Sep 20, 2015       Teacher: James Slone       Series: Psalm 23
 Passage: Psalm 23:6
Do you feel like something is chasing you? What do you think it is? It might surprise you, but the psalmist says goodness and mercy are hot on your trail.
 Date: Sun, Sep 13, 2015       Teacher: James Slone       Series: Psalm 23
 Passage: Psalm 23:5
The languages of the Bible depend upon metaphors, similes, and other word pictures in order to convey God's truths. We just can't make sense of heavenly revelation without some earthly comparisons. We certainly can't make sense of Psalm 23 without understanding the powerful metaphors so beautifully portrayed in the poem. The two little phrases at the end of verse 5, the anointed head and an overflowing cup, are rich examples of how God paints word pictures in order to show us the richness of his blessings
 Date: Sun, Sep 06, 2015       Teacher: James Slone       Series: Psalm 23
 Passage: Psalm 23:4
A flock of sheep must have a sense of security in order to even survive. The means of that security for the sheep provide images that tell us human beings how we too can find peaceful security.
