New: "New Destination"

Edmund Brooks

Many of us have goals in life. Whether it is to graduate high school, land your dream job, or retire comfortably, everyone has a goal “destination” in sight. But when you come to Christ, you are given a new destination and a new means to get there.

New: "New Playbook"

Edmund Brooks

The world we live in has rules, societal norms, and its own set of morals. Our entire lives we are taught to live by these rules. But when you become a Christian, you are told to live by a different set of rules. These rules are established and governed by God Himself.

New: "New Purpose"

Edmund Brooks

Many people know what their “calling” is. A friend of mine was called “Doctor” by his parents since he was a child. You can guess what his parents wanted his calling to be. But when you come to Christ you are called to an even bigger task. What is that task? What is your purpose as a Christian?

New: "New Identity"

Edmund Brooks

Our society identifies a person by many different things. It could be your job. It could be your stage of life (parent, young married, retiree). It could be the country of origin for your family. But for those who are Christ followers, they are now identified by something else.

New: "New Family"

Edmund Brooks

When you become a Christian you become a part of God’s family. God is now your father and the people of God are now your brothers and sisters. How does that work out practically? How do we live with family that is not Christian? How do we live with this new family in the church? These are the questions we hope to answer this week.

New: "New Life"

Edmund Brooks

When you become a Christian you become a new person. This is symbolized by baptism but emphasized by Jesus many times in the scriptures. The old person is dead and gone but who is this new person? What characteristics does this new person have? How does this new person live? These are the questions we answer from God’s Word this week.

"Resurrected Savior"

Edmund Brooks

What is the big deal with Easter? Is it more than candy for kids and a reason to get together with loved ones? We at the church believe that it is more than that. On Easter we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus. It is very important to a Christian that Jesus truly rose from the dead. We will look into the reasons why it is important to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection from the dead this Easter Sunday. Join us!

Resurrected Savior - There is no study guide this week. This week's sermon is a standalone sermon for Easter. May your reflection on Jesus' resurrection bring you hope and peace this week!

Letters For Living: "The Outstanding Debt"

Edmund Brooks

Onesimus has broken the law. He has robbed his employer Philemon. Onesimus deserves to be punished. Onesimus deserves to be executed for his crimes. But Paul pleads for Philemon to show mercy to Onesimus. The reason for this mercy is the gospel itself.

Letters For Living: "Imitating Who?"

Edmund Brooks

The New Testament is full of examples that we are called to follow. In John’s third letter, he actually tells the church not to follow a certain person, Diotrephes’ example. It turns out that Diotrephes is actually inhibiting the work of the church and the work of the gospel. In John’s third letter, he tells us how to respond to people like that and who we should imitate.
