The Origin of Life

In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth. In Genesis 1 we learn that God created, designed, ordered, and organized all of creation to function for our good. He created the sun, moon, and stars to mark our days. He designed the waters, vegetation, and animals to all work together. And then finally he created humans in his image to be his representatives and co-rulers of his good creation. Humans are not some evolved afterthought because of some…

Song of Praise

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. God is the God of joy. He blesses us with music, dancing, and other forms of worship so we can demonstrate love to Him and unite with fellow believers. The Psalmist uses this psalm to show us how we can worship and praise our Heavenly Father. Sermon Text: Psalm 100 Preacher: Pastor Forrest Bivens

Song of Confession

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. For any of us who have ever found ourselves guilty of a sin (so, everyone), this psalm hits hard. The Psalmist David wrote this song after the prophet Nathan helped him recognize his sinful ways. All of us from learn about confession from this psalm, as we read how David cries out to God in repentance, knowing he is forgiven and saved from his sins.…

Song of Our Savior

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. One of the top hits in the Psalms playlist, Psalm 23 is well-known but often misconstrued. We often hear this at funerals or see it on artwork, but we don’t really understand what the Psalmist David meant by it. We will take a deeper look at this psalm to understand how our Good Shepherd walks with us through thick and thin. Sermon Text: Psalm 23 Preacher: Pastor Ben Sadler

Song of Lament

How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? This Psalm opens with a lament to God over difficulties. Like the Psalmist David, we sometimes feel forgotten by God. We wonder how long our suffering can go on. But, like David, when we go to God and study His Word in difficult times, we come to realize that we can trust in His unfailing love and remain sure of our salvation through…

Song of Creation

Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! Psalm 8 opens and closes with praise to the Creator of all things. The Psalmist examines God’s creation, from the Heavens to the Earth and all the beings in between. Through this, we come to marvel at how God created and cares for humankind. Although we don’t deserve it, God sets humans as rulers over land and animals, providing all things for His people. Sermon Text: Psalm 8 Preacher:…

Songs of God

Blessed are all who take refuge in Him. The book of Psalms opens with instructions for how and why to read the Bible. Psalm 1 teaches us how to read God’s Word so it touches our hearts in a way that we grow closer to Him. This is followed by Psalm 2, which directs us in how to see our Savior throughout Scripture and in all parts of our lives. God uses these first two Psalms to direct our eyes…

How do we support people with different views on sexuality?

We are all equal in Christ, and every person we meet should be treated with love and respect as a child of God. But even amongst Christians, this looks different – particularly in how they interact with those in the LGBTQ+ community. Should Christians support the LGBTQ+ community? What does it look like for a Christian to truly “love the sinner, but hate the sin”? How can Christians support people whose beliefs and lifestyles are different than what God teaches…

How do Christian values and politics interact?

When people find out you’re a Christian, they tend to make assumptions about your political stance on different issues. These assumptions may or may not be accurate, and you might not even know what to think about politics. No party’s values align completely with God’s values, so you might feel like you don’t know how to vote or what to do as a citizen in a democracy. So, who should Christians vote for? How are we supposed to remain true…

What does God say about divorce?

God created marriage in such a way that man and woman “become one flesh”. Marriage is supposed to be a sacred bond that lasts until death. But we know that’s not always the case. Marriages are tricky relationships because of our sinful nature. So what does God say about divorce? Are there situations where it’s okay to get divorced, or should people stay in marriages no matter what? What happens in future relationships for people who have been divorced? To…

Where did sin come from?

Right at the start of the Bible, we read in Genesis how God created a perfect earth with perfect people. However, things didn’t stay perfect forever. God’s creation used the free will given to them by their Creator to be tempted by Satan, thereby staining the world forever. But is this where sin actually started – in the Garden of Eden? Or did it start when Satan fell from Heaven? And why did God allow this to happen at all?…

Why does God let bad things happen?

We know that being a Christian doesn’t guarantee us care-free lives. But the weight of the world often gets heavy. We see senseless violence, suffering and pain, hardship, and strife everywhere we look. Some of the most faith-filled people endure more difficult trials than we can ever imagine. We can’t help wondering why these bad things happen in our lives and the lives of those around us. We know that God has the power to prevent all of it. So…
