Luke 8:43-48 (NET)

 8:43 Now a woman was there who had been suffering from a hemorrhage for twelve years but could not be healed by anyone. 8:44 She came up behind Jesus and touched the edge of his cloak, and at once the bleeding stopped. 8:45 Then Jesus asked, “Who was it who touched me?” When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds are surrounding you and pressing against you!” 8:46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me, for I know that power has gone out from me.” 8:47 When the woman saw that she could not escape notice, she came trembling and fell down before him. In the presence of all the people, she explained why she had touched him and how she had been immediately healed. 8:48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”

Christ Announced To The Shepherds

Sermon: Brad Shuck

MP3: sermon-b.shuck-Dec14-2014

Luke 2:8-20 (NET)

2:15 When the angels left them and went back to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place, that the Lord has made known to us.” 2:16 So they hurried off and located Mary and Joseph, and found the baby lying in a manger. 2:17 When they saw him, they related what they had been told about this child, 2:18 and all who heard it were astonished at what the shepherds said. 2:19 But Mary treasured up all these words, pondering in her heart what they might mean. 2:20 So the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen; everything was just as they had been told.

Sermon: I will not be buried! (Brad Shuck)

MP3: sermon-b.shuck-Nov16-2014

Matthew 25:14-30 (NET)

25:22 The one with the two talents also came and said, ‘Sir, you entrusted two talents to me. See, I have gained two more.’ 25:23 His master answered, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave! You have been faithful with a few things. I will put you in charge of many things. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 25:24 Then the one who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Sir, I knew that you were a hard man, harvesting where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter seed, 25:25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. See, you have what is yours.’ 25:26 But his master answered, ‘Evil and lazy slave! So you knew that I harvest where I didn’t sow and gather where I didn’t scatter? 25:27 Then you should have deposited my money with the bankers, and on my return I would have received my money back with interest!

Sermon: Worry Less and Enjoy Life More (Mike Pyle)

MP3: sermon-m.pyle-Nov10-2014

Matthew 6:25-34 (NET)

6:25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t there more to life than food and more to the body than clothing? 6:26 Look at the birds in the sky: They do not sow, or reap, or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you more valuable than they are? 6:27 And which of you by worrying can add even one hour to his life? 6:28 Why do you worry about clothing? Think about how the flowers of the field grow; they do not work or spin. 6:29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed like one of these!

Sermon: Troubled Times (Brad Shuck)

MP3: sermon-b.shuck-Oct26-2014

Psalm 46  (NET)

46:1 For the music director; by the Korahites; according to the alamoth style; a song. God is our strong refuge; he is truly our helper in times of trouble.

46:2 For this reason we do not fear when the earth shakes, and the mountains tumble into the depths of the sea,

46:3 when its waves crash and foam, and the mountains shake before the surging sea. (Selah)

46:4 The river’s channels bring joy to the city of God, the special, holy dwelling place of the sovereign One.

46:5 God lives within it, it cannot be moved. God rescues it at the break of dawn.

46:6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms are overthrown. God gives a shout, the earth dissolves.
