October 25, 2020 – “Actions Speak Louder Than Words”

October 25, 2020

Talk! Talk! Talk! As they say, “Talk is cheap!” And many times that is right. It is true. What we really need is action not talk. Sometimes actions speak louder than words. This certainly what God showed us as He opened up the heavens and gave forth His only Son to become “the word become flesh”! Today we consider applying the old adage “actions speak louder than words” to our own lives.

Read Philippians 2:1-11; James 2:14-22; and Matthew 21:28-32

October 18, 2020 - “Example Is Everything”

October 18, 2020

Pastor Jahneke returns as he begins this new sermon series entitled "Sermons That Matter". This is a 5 part sermon series. Today's message is entitled "Example Is Everything"   Today we give some thought to the people who have really made a difference in our life. Their example meant so much to us! Today we consider the value of the example we provide and the difference we can make in the lives of others by way of our example. Mark 10:42; Hebrews 2:9-10; Matthew 4:19

Oct. 11, 2020 - “The Thought that Counts”

October 11, 2020

When we receive cards and gifts, they don't have to be perfect, right? Even with imperfect gifts we can say, "It's the thought that counts." God thinks about us in ways that are hard to imagine, especially in the sacrifice of His Son for us. Now, His love appears in us. Find out how.

See 1John 4 (A short chapter), Ephesians 4:14-16.

Oct. 4, 2020 - “It Was Love from the Beginning”

October 4, 2020

When we look back to the good old days, it sometimes seems that things were much simpler then. Things were simpler and less complicated. Does it feel that way to you? John, the Gospel writer felt it. John invites us to go back to the beginning of Christianity. Join us in our journey.

See 1 John 3 (a short chapter), John 3:16ff.

September 27, 2020 – “The Secrets of Lasting Love”

September 27, 2020

Everything seems to change in life. Everything! I get a kick out of all this stuff about global warming, as if things were not going to change anyway! With us or without us this world will change. One thing does not change and that is God’s love. And you know what, it does not matter what we do, his love is not going to change! Do you have that kind of love going on in you? Today we are going to talk about it! We are going to talk about the kind of love that lasts a lifetime…and longer!

Read I Cor: 7 and Isaiah 54:8

September 20, 2020 – “You Don’t Have To Yell”

September 20, 2020

While anger is not always a bad thing, it can be a terrible thing. It can destroy everything and leave you alone without the people you said you loved. We hear today about “anger management” and that in the business world it is so important to get a hold of yourself. We hear about rage on our highways and how even some people end up dead because of it. Anger can be very destructive and God has something to say about that…even more so He has something to give us that can help us put our anger in its place. God comes to give us some perspective on the anger in our life.

Read Proverbs 29:11 and Psalm 141:3

September 13, 2020 – “Love Lets it Go!”

September 13, 2020

We have been talking about having a life that grows in loving people and how to do that. One of the ways that God teaches us to love is by putting us among unloving people. I am sure of this! Don’t you just love it? Today we look at those people and how they can really test us and strengthen us in being loving. It is easy to love loving people, but that is not why God sent his Son to the world! How do you do with those who tend to get under your skin?

Read I Corinthians 13:4-7; Ephesians 4:31-32; Philippians 2:5-7

September 6, 2020 – “How Do You Love With Your Words?”

September 8, 2020

Communication is everything! It is not only what you say, but how you say it. How do you love with your words? Words are powerful and they can make or break a relationship. Today we want to think that through and consider how we are loving with the words we choose. To love is to be honest, but is being honest always loving? We definitely need to be careful because words are so powerful. Will Rogers once said, “Be careful of the words you say. Keep them soft and sweet. You never know from day to day, which ones you will have to eat.

Read James 3:1-12 and Matthew 12:33-37

August 30, 2020 – “What does it mean to love like Jesus?”

August 30, 2020

The perfect example of love is Jesus! That is the central message of the Bible! Today we share that message. We are going to look at how much Jesus loves you and how God calls all of us to pass that love on to others. What does it mean to love like Jesus? There are some key words that we will look at: Acceptance, value, worth, and forgiveness!

Read John 13:1-15; 34-35 

August 23, 2020 – “Love Matters Most”

August 23, 2020

All of us need to continually learn two things as we said last week: We need to learn to love God and we need to learn to love each other. Life is one giant lesson on love. So, is love a big priority in your life? Today we focus on why love is more important than anything else and what it does for us. Think of the love that you have going on in your life. What does it do for you? Today we consider that one of the best expressions of love is TIME! Remember the song “The Cat’s In The Cradle”? What was missing?
