 Passage: Ephesians 3:8
Like the Apostle Paul, I realize it is a great privilege to be allowed to preach the gospel: "Although I am less that the least of all God's people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ" (Ephesians 3:8).
 Date: Sun, Jun 03, 2018       Teacher: James Slone      
 Passage: 1 Corinthians 2:1-5
As I have prepared the last few sermons before I retire from preaching to this congregation, I have asked myself, "Is there anything I have not told you that I should have told you?" I know that it is exceedingly presumptuous, but I identify with Paul when he wrote to the Corinthians about his ministry among them.
 Date: Sun, May 27, 2018       Teacher: James Slone      
 Passage: Ephesians 3:14-19
Trinity Sunday has always been a difficult day for me. I feel compelled to do more than just acknowledge the doctrine; I want to preach something that unveils inspiring truth about God as three yet one. But those are hard sermons to preach, about the hardest sermons I ever preach. It occurred to me this year that it is even harder for you, the congregation, who have to listen to those sermons. Yet, I'm going to subject you to one more attempt, another shot at preaching on the Trinity. So, listen and think about the prayer in Ephesians 3: 14-19.
 Date: Sun, May 20, 2018       Teacher: James Slone      
 Passage: Ephesians 1:17
How do you recognize the true work of the Holy Spirit? There's an insight in Paul's first prayer for the saints at Ephesus in which he talks about the nature of the Holy Spirit.
 Date: Sun, May 13, 2018       Teacher: James Slone      
 Passage: John 19:25-27
How do you work out the priorities of God and family in your life? Jesus had a family and hard to sort these priorities out in his own life, just like we do. There is a lot that we can learn from Jesus' interaction with his mother from the cross.
 Date: Sun, May 06, 2018       Teacher: James Slone      
 Passage: Acts 2:32-36
The ascension of Jesus Christ is the most critical yet most neglected component of the gospel today. That certainly was not the case in the early church. It has a prominent place in Peter's sermon at Pentecost, the prototype of New Testament preaching.
 Date: Sun, Apr 29, 2018       Teacher: James Slone      
 Passage: John 21:15-19
The last resurrection appearance of Jesus that John chose to tell us about took place one morning on the shore of the Sea of Galilee where Jesus fixed a fish breakfast for his disciples and had a talk with Peter.
 Date: Sun, Apr 22, 2018       Teacher: James Slone      
 Passage: Malachi 3:10-11
The Lord wants to abundantly bless us, but too often we do not believe him. In fact, our actions as well as our words indict us, revealing that we really do not trust him, especially when it comes to money.
 Date: Sun, Apr 15, 2018       Teacher: Jon Carrell      
 Passage: Luke 20:27-38
Could we be more like the Sadducees than we care to admit? The Sadducees said there was no resurrection.
 Date: Mon, Apr 09, 2018       Teacher: James Slone      
 Passage: Exodus 33:13 & John 14:6-7
As Moses talked intimately with the Lord, the Scripture says "fact to face, as a man speaks with his friend," interceding for his people Israel, he asked the Lord for an even deeper understanding and relationship with him. The Lord answered. The immediate answer was his self-descriptive revelation in Exodus 34:6-7, but a more complete and glorious revelation came later, much later.
