Sermon: The Voices of Advent (Glen Sowards) 

MP3: sermon-g.sowards-Nov27-2011

Isaiah 35:1-10 (NET)

35:8 A thoroughfare will be there –
it will be called the Way of Holiness.
The unclean will not travel on it;
it is reserved for those authorized to use it –
fools will not stray into it.
35:9 No lions will be there,
no ferocious wild animals will be on it –
they will not be found there.
Those delivered from bondage will travel on it,
35:10 those whom the Lord has ransomed will return that way.
They will enter Zion with a happy shout.
Unending joy will crown them,
happiness and joy will overwhelm them;
grief and suffering will disappear.

Prayers

Praise The Lord, O My Soul!

November 27th will be Dr. Sowards last Sunday as pastor. Then on December 4th we will welcome Rev. EJ Hatton. Rev. Hatton is already maintaining a church in Dawson Springs so our worship times will be changing to accommodate his schedule. Worship will move to 9:30 AM and Sunday School will be afterward.

Christian Heights’ presence on the Internet is still expanding! Google launched Google+ this year as a competitor to Facebook. Christian Heights’ profile went public a week ago. Your thoughts are welcome!

Sermon: When Shall We Give Thanks (Glen Sowards)

MP3: sermon-g.sowards-Nov20-2011

Psalms 103:1-5 (NET)

103:1 By David.
Praise the Lord, O my soul!
With all that is within me, praise his holy name!
103:2 Praise the Lord, O my soul!
Do not forget all his kind deeds!
103:3 He is the one who forgives all your sins,
who heals all your diseases,
103:4 who delivers your life from the Pit,
who crowns you with his loyal love and compassion,
103:5 who satisfies your life with good things,
so your youth is renewed like an eagle’s.

Sermon: The Business of a Christian (Glen Sowards)

MP3: sermon-g.sowards-Nov13-2011

Mark 2:1-11 (NET)

2:1 Now after some days, when he returned to Capernaum, the news spread that he was at home. 2:2 So many gathered that there was no longer any room, not even by the door, and he preached the word to them. 2:3 Some people came bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them. 2:4 When they were not able to bring him in because of the crowd, they removed the roof above Jesus. Then, after tearing it out, they lowered the stretcher the paralytic was lying on. 2:5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”

All Saints Sunday

The Basement sale was a big success for Christian Heights. We met our fundraising goal. At the same time we also distributed 69 CDs. Each CD had a recording of one days worship service and a note with our contact info.

The mp3 today has an extra bonus. We celebrated All Saints day by speaking the names of CHUMC’s charter members and tolling a bell for those who have passed away.

Sermon: Where Shall We Meet? (Glen Sowards)

MP3: sermon-g.sowards-Nov6-2011

Mark 14:22-25 (NET)

14:22 While they were eating, he took bread, and after giving thanks he broke it, gave it to them, and said, “Take it. This is my body.” 14:23 And after taking the cup and giving thanks, he gave it to them, and they all drank from it. 14:24 He said to them, “This is my blood, the blood of the covenant, that is poured out for many. 14:25 I tell you the truth, I will no longer drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”
