Faith Prays for Blessing

As it says in James 1:16, every good and perfect gift comes from God. Therefore, God wants us to call on him in prayer. We pray a prayer of thanksgiving in times of blessing, and we call out to God for help in times of trial. James 5 tells us that prayer that flows from faith is powerful and effective. Sermon Text: James 5:13-20 Preacher: Pastor Ben Sadler

Thanksgiving Eve Service

For followers of Jesus, Thanksgiving is not just a one-day celebration, it is a way of life. The Scriptures encourage us to give thanks in all circumstances. That is especially important throughout this holiday season. Giving thanks is one way to respond to the stressors that fill this time of the year. As we gather to give thanks this Wednesday evening, we will discuss how we can make gratefulness a daily habit as we prepare for life’s upcoming challenges. Sermon Text: Philippians 4:4-7…

Faith Submits to God

Our selfish desires lead us to quarrel to get our own way. James 4 teaches us to put our faith into action by changing our hearts through submission to God’s Word. When we humble ourselves in such a way, God will lift us up. Sermon Text: James 4:1-10 Preacher: Pastor Bill Limmer

Faith Speaks Wisely

Our tongue is one of the smallest parts of our bodies, and yet it can cause the most trouble. The first two chapters of James teach us about growth through trials, putting knowledge into action, and letting go of worldly biases. James 3 adds another level to understanding Christian maturity as it teaches us the importance of speaking wisely with our words. Our words ought to flow from faith. Out of the same mouth should not come praising and cursing.…

Faith does Good Works

We believe that we are saved by faith in Jesus Christ apart from works. But true faith in Jesus will lead to good works. Our faith in not just some intellectual knowledge of God but the action of living it out. James 2 teaches us that it is the work of the Holy Spirit leading us to know that we are loved so that we can love. Sermon Text: James 2:14-26 Preacher: Pastor Bill Limmer

Faith has no Favorites

It is common to categorize people based on their finances or influence. We might evaluate what such people can do for us. James 2 teaches us to put our faith in to action and love others without showing favoritism. All people were made by God and Jesus died for them all, therefore we ought not play favorites. Sermon Text: James 2:1-13 Preacher: Pastor Ben Sadler

Faith Perseveres

Everyone experiences times of testing and suffering. The book of James opens with an unexpected theme – the idea of maturity through trials and tribulations. James tells us that challenges can be good because they result in greater maturity and a stronger faith. James will teach us of perseverance through trials. Sermon Text: James 1:1-8;13-18 Preacher:  Pastor Bill Limmer

The Origin of Pride

We continue to make incredible advances in technology, which are allowing us to do some amazing things. We can communicate across the globe instantaneously. We can gather and communicate large amounts of data. We can explore endless amounts of information. As we continue to grow, we can also fall into the trap of pride and arrogance. We feel like we are in control of everything. But our pride in our advances has not always created a more loving and connected…

The Origin of Corruption

Not only are there individuals who are wicked, but we can see systems and institutions that conspire together in their corruption. Wickedness and evil permeate so much of society that we can’t even so our own contribution. Genesis 6 tells the story of how a whole group of people can be led off into evil, and more importantly, what we can do to remain faithful to the Lord. Sermon Text: Genesis 6-9 Preacher: Pastor Bill Limmer

The Origin of Envy

God designed us to live lives of service towards others, so why do we struggle so much with envy? Genesis 4 tells the story of the first two siblings, Cain and Abel, and how Cain became envious of Abel’s success. This story shows us the origin of envy and how we can begin to overcome it. Sermon Text: Genesis 4 Preacher: Pastor Ben Sadler

The Origin of our Rebellion

God designed us to live for him. But instead of loving God above all things, we want to be in charge. We want to be our own gods. Where does that selfish impulse come from? Genesis 3 tells the story of the origin of our rebellion from God and what God promised to do to repair our relationship. Sermon Text: Genesis 3 Preacher: Pastor Bill Limmer

The origin of relationships

Humans were not made to be alone. The Bible tells us what we instinctively know by nature. We are social creatures who were designed to live in families of mutual commitment and love. In Genesis 2, God shows us how that first family came to be when he designed Adam and Eve to be married to one another. We live according to God’s good design when we make the same lifelong commitment to our spouse for the good of our…
