Why Me? For Such A Time As This: Simon of Cyrene - VIGNETTE

Why Me? For Such A Time As This: Simon of Cyrene

In arrogant spite and hate, Jesus was mocked. Christ took all of that for you and for me. God sent Him because He loves us SO much. You can imagine how weak and tired our Lord was. Simon of Cyrene was forced to carry Jesus' cross. The cross is not popular, except in jewelry, but to speak of the Cross of Christ is not a popular subject. It screams that we are sinners in desperate need of a Savior.

Why Me Ebed-Melech? For Such A Time As This - VIGNETTE

Why Me Ebed-Melech?  For Such A Time As This 
We in America have enjoyed blessings for a long time, and we have not been persecuted for our faith. But now we do see the beginnings of persecutions.  Some of us may someday die for our faith, so we should not be surprised as our world gets more and more ungodly. It is not popular to say there is only one way to God.

How Big Is God? His Story! - CLASS

How Big Is God? His Story!
We are going to look at the bookends of our lives.  We know that our belief system impacts, affects, and controls our lives.  God determines everything, the outcome of heaven and earth. He is everything.

At Death Do Animals Go To Heaven? - CLASS

At Death Do Animals Go To Heaven?
When children's pets die, some parents may tell their children that 'Fido' went to heaven.  Without question the Bible teaches animals will be in the Kingdom, but that's not heaven.  Lets look at some Bibleverses between animal flesh and human flesh.

Why Me? (Part 3) - VIGNETTE

Why Me? (Part 3)
We are going to be looking at The Samaritan Woman in John chapter 4.  Some women have made horrible decisions in their lives.   This woman came to learn she could never get enough of what you do not need. No matter how scarred your past is, it doesn't matter. God will not turn  you away.  There is no saint without a past.  There is no sinner without a future.

Why Me? (Parts 1 & 2) - CLASS

Why Me? (Parts 1 & 2)
We are going to be looking at the The Life Of Peter. Do you ever say "Why Me, Lord?" It is one thing to make a good start, it's another to make good progress. Peter made a good start. But there were things in his life, in his character, that needed to be cut out so he could make good progress. I like to think of my life as a book. We have a beginning when we are born, and an ending, when we die, but we do not end there.

Welcome To The Congregation But Watch Out For The Alligators! - VIGNETTE

Welcome To The Congregation But Watch Out For The Alligators! 
Do you know what a group of alligators is called? A congregation! I just thought that was so interesting. Winston Churchill once said, "Appeasement is like feeding an alligator hoping he will eat you last."

Do You Ever Feel Pathos For God - CLASS

Do You Ever Feel Pathos For God
I see when we look at Scripture what God did for His earthly people and they turned their back. He never ever failed them.God introduces and reintroduces Himself in the pages of Scripture, as to Who He is. What would it be like if you had a dear friend who said they loved you, but you had to introduce yourself every time you met?
