November 9, 2014: The Importance of Sound Teaching (Dr. David Humphreys)
2 Timothy 4:1-5 We are in a battle – we are bombarded with ideas from all kinds of directions that are at odds with what God’s Word teaches.  There are three things we need to be clear about – our message, our method and our motives.

1 Corinthians 6 & 7

October 12, 2014: No. 6 – What About Singles? (Ross Kearney)
1 Corinthians 7:25-40  The church can unintentionally make things hard for singles.  Paul here addresses those who are not married and points out some of the advantages of being single as a follower of Christ.  

October 5, 2014: No. 5 – Life in the Here and Now (Ross Kearney)
1 Corinthians 7:17-24  Where has God placed you at this time of your life?  Do you wish it was different?

The Corinthians, like us, had many questions about a variety of issues related to marriage.  So, what about divorce and remarriage?

September 14, 2014: No. 2 – God-Given Power for Your Marriage (Ross Kearney)
1 Corinthians 7:1-7; 6:16  Does the Bible say much about sexual intimacy? Yes it does, though we tend to avoid those passages in our public teaching – but, not today! Why? Because sexual imtimacy ought to be a priority in marriage.

September 7, 2014: No. 1 – Married or Single? Glorify God in Your Body (Ross Kearney)
1 Corinthians 6:12-20  We live in a sex-saturated culture, and it is easy for Christians to be influenced by it.  The culture in the city of Corinth was really not that different from ours today, and Paul’s lettter to the Corinthians has a lot to say about sex, marriage and singleness.

July 6, 2014: Part 23 – Free Indeed (Ross Kearney)
John 8:30-38  Freedom is highly valued in our society, and it was in Jesus’ day as well.  Jesus’ listeners assumed they were free when they were not.  Do we make the same mistake?  What does it mean to be “free indeed”?   

June 29, 2014: Part 22 – The Light of the World (Ross Kearney)
John 8:12-29  There are many amazing things in the place and time in which we live that we take for granted – like the ability to bring light into a dark room at the flick of a switch.  Do we likewise take the “Light of the World” for granted?  

June 22, 2014: Part 21 – Answering Life’s Most Important Question (Ross Kearney)
John 7-8  Who is Jesus?  You will hear a variety of opinions on this most important question, and many viewpoints are expressed in this passage. What do those who knew Jesus best say?  And what does Jesus say about himself?

Luke 10:17-22  Missions are important, and are a great experience when things go well and there is evident success.  But Jesus says there is something greater to rejoice about. 

June 8, 2014: It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This (Ross Kearney)

May 25, 2014: Finding Jesus in the Old Testament (Gordon Oeste)
Matthew 1:1-17 etc. There are many people today who have not heard about Jesus.  But we can find out about him (not always reliably) from many sources in our culture – Hollywood, on stage, on the internet. A better source of course is the Bible – but not only the New Testament – we can discover him in the Old Testament as well, just as the early Christians did.

April 27, 2014: Part 19 – Essential Jesus (Ross Kearney)
John 6:52-59  Apathy towards Jesus is a big problem – many ignore him, or have a mild interest in him, but do not see him as essential. The words of Jesus offend his listeners, but they are really a simple illustration that he is essential. As food is necessary for us to stay alive physically, so Jesus is essential to us being alive spiritually.

John 4:27-42  There are three scenes in this final part of the story of the woman at the well. In the first, the disciples are surprised and confused. In the middle scene we have Jesus encouraging the disciples to open their eyes to see what he sees. Then in the final scene we see the harvest Jesus has been describing!  

February 2, 2014: Part 11 – Worship in Spirit and Truth (Ross Kearney)

September 30, 2012: Be Reconciled to God (Ross Kearney)
2 Corinthians 5:16-6:2  “… in Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself.” Ross first poses two questions, which lead to the subject of today’s message – our need to be reconciled to God. God is the author of our reconciliation, Jesus is the agent of our reconciliation, and we are then called to be God’s ambassadors – taking God’s message of reconciliation to others who need to hear it.
