“In my years of pastoral ministry, and my personal walk with our Lord, I have come to realize that the journey of faith can be a very diverse and complex experience. And yet, regardless of the circumstances I am comforted by God’s promises to us in the gospel. Particularly that, all that the Father has given [God’s elect] to Jesus Christ, from the foundation of the world, will come to him, and that he will not lose one of them. He also promised that he would build his church, and that the gates of hell would not prevail against it. What an unfathomable blessing and privilege to be God’s child through the instrument and gift of faith! What a comfort and encouragement that he is working all things together for our salvation and progressive sanctification.”
– Pastor Bobby Adams
Sunday Morning Worship Service – 10:30 a.m.
There are two main themes of Ephesians: (1) Christ has reconciled all creation to himself and to God, and (2) Christ has united people from all nations to himself and to one another in his church. These great deeds were accomplished through the powerful, sovereign, and free working of the Triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—and are recognized and received by faith alone through his grace. In light of these great truths, Christians are to lead lives that are a fitting tribute of gratitude to their great Lord.
Sunday Evening Worship Service – 6:00 p.m.
The format of Judges is a collection of individual stories which tell the history of Israel during a specific era. Judges pictures a mixture of good and bad behavior: the judges are not idealized, nor is their portrait uniformly negative.
The pattern introduced in is the overall plot of the book:
- The Israelites do what is evil in the sight of God;
- God allows the nation to be conquered and oppressed by a neighboring nation;
- The people cry to God; and
- God sends a judge to deliver them.
Then the cycle repeats itself.
In addition to this cycle, the book is structured on the premise of a double plot. The overall story is one of national descent into lawlessness and apostasy; but within this national narrative lies a collection of stories that celebrate the heroic exploits of judges, demonstrating the grace of God in the midst of his sinful people. Even though they had severe flaws, four of these judges are mentioned among the heroes of the faith ()
Occasional Sermon Series
The Hard Sayings of Jesus: Counting the Cost of True Discipleship
In this series, Pastor Chad Sadorf asks listeners, “What is the cost Jesus calls his disciples to consider as they take up their cross and follow him?” The Gospels often highlighted the people’s reactions to Jesus Christ’s words, including what was often just difficult to believe, as when Jesus declared in that he was the “living manna” and that all who come to him must “eat his flesh and drink his blood,” John notes that many of Jesus’ disciples responded, “This is a hard saying; who can hear it?” () John then writes, “From that time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him” (). Counting the cost of discipleship means weighing Jesus’ words, even hard words. This occasional sermon series will explore the hard sayings of Jesus.
