[05/15/2022 PM] Celebrate God’s Restoration of Ruined Things (Nahum 1:9-2:2)

May 15, 2022

Speaker: Pastor Matthew Walker

Series: The Book of Nahum Series

 

In the middle 7th century B.C., Nahum confidently prophesied that the great kingdom of Assyria would be brought to nothing. What seemed to be a kingdom at its height was, nevertheless, “at and end.” Israel also seemed to be ruined; divided by internal strife and then partially destroyed by Assyria, it lay in tatters. However, God promised to restore Israel back to strength. Through this story we see that what seems strong may be weak and what seems to be weak, when God is involved, is actually strong. Tonight’s sermon: Celebrate God’s Restoration of Ruined Things (Nahum 1:9-2:2).

[05/15/2022 AM] He Has Borne Our Griefs (Isaiah 53:4-6)

May 15, 2022

Speaker: Pastor Matthew Walker

Scripture: Isaiah 53:4-6

Communion Service

Isaiah’s prophecy of the Suffering Servant revealed how Messiah (Jesus) would rescue His people from their sins. Messiah, though sinless Himself, would bear their sins as if they were His own. It is amazing to think that Jesus deliberately took upon Himself the punishment we deserve, even while we were turning away from him. Jesus truly is “the Friend of sinners.”

[05/08/2022PM] Is This America’s God? (Nahum 1:1-8)

May 8, 2022

Nahum is a little known prophecy in the Old Testament, but
it is critical for our understanding of how God deals with
Gentile nations - particularly the great “world powers.” In
this sense, there is a lot for Americans to consider in this
prophecy. The opening paragraph of Nahum focused on
the nature of God. The prophet revealed God to the pagan
Assyrians as a righteous, powerful, and supremely just God.

Finding God’s Blessings in Our Griefs (1 Samuel 30:1-15)

Finding God’s Blessings in Our Griefs (1 Samuel 30:1-15)

Grief is not the end. It often feels (especially in the moment) as if it is, but there is life to be lived after grief. How we respond to grief is critical to the aftermath. If we respond by blaming others or refusing to accept God’s leading in our lives, our griefs will be amplified. But if we respond in faith then we can anticipate that God’s blessings will naturally follow.

[05/01/2022 PM] Commit Yourself to God’s Word (Joshua 1:1-9)

Speaker: Pastor Matthew Walker

Series: How to Study the Bible Effectively

 

We have an opportunity each month to memorize part of God’s Word. This opportunity provides each of us with encouragement to internalize His life-changing truth. This takes commitment from us, but it’s one we should happily do. Tonight’s sermon focuses on why you should Commit Yourself to God’s Word (Joshua 1:1-9).

Praying Through Our Grief (1 Samuel 23:7-15, 27:1-12)

Praying Through Our Grief (1 Samuel 23:7-15, 27:1-12)

May 1, 2022

Imagine being lost in a thick woods and not being able to get out. The trees all look the same and you begin to feel that you’ve been walking in circles. This is how grieving people feel much of the time.  After asking the common question, “why?” they may begin to ask, “what now?” God is the answer to this problem and we must consult Him through prayer. Today’s sermon: Praying Through Our Grief. (1 Samuel 23:7-15, 27:1-12)

[04/24/2022 PM] The Importance of Ancient Backgrounds (John 10:1-21)

[04/24/2022 PM] The Importance of Ancient Backgrounds (John 10:1-21)

April 24, 2022

Speaker: Pastor Matthew Walker

Scripture: John 10:1-21

Series: How to Study the Bible Effectively

One of the reasons that we struggle to understand the Bible is that it was written to an ancient audience using their language and culture as a backdrop for its teaching. Understanding life in antiquity is one of the most important tools we must develop if we are going to be good students of God’s word. Tonight’s sermon examines the parable of the Good Shepherd in John 10 by looking at it through the lens of life in Israel in the first century.

[04/24/2022 AM] Companionship in Grief (1 Samuel 21:1-9, 22:9-22)

April 24, 2022

Speaker: Pastor Matthew Walker

Scripture: 1 Samuel 21:1-9, 22:9-22

Series: Grief: A Study in the Life of David

One of the worst aspects of grief is the feeling that one is alone in sorrow. It is not true: God is always with us, but it can feel as though we are alone. One of the ways God has provided to mitigate our grief is to place people in our life who provide companionship during difficult times. Today’s sermon examines a terrible experience in the life of David, and how he provided comfort to a young man who lost his family during the war with Saul.

Easter Sunday Morning Message

As most of the world sleeps, God provides them with air, water, and food, and they are relatively unaware of His involvement in their lives. They are ignorant of Him and to whatever extent that they believe in God, most of humanity ignores Him day to day. But God will not always remain silent; there will be a time when He will rise up and judge the world by the Lord Jesus who rose from the dead. This truth should lead us to Penitential Worship as a Response to the Resurrection (Acts 17:22-34).
