A wonderful theme in Scripture is that God is the deliver of hurting people. - David called God, my deliver, in Psalm 18:2 – The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. - And a major theme of the…

What we see as being broken God's Grace takes what is broken and puts it back together in such a way that it is more beautiful and more valuable than it was before.
How I Met Jesus
Think about a town nearby. If you were to send someone to evangelize that town, who would you choose? What education and experience should they have? What about their background and character? Would you choose a broken woman with a shady past? Not likely, but Jesus did. Today we unpack John 4 and Jesus' encounter with an unlikely candidate to evangelize a local town.

We are living in times where we really need to be pressing in to Christ… Some of the things that are happening around us are difficult to comprehend… Sometimes we get a little too comfortable and forget that this world is not heaven… we are aliens and pilgrims on the earth… there is evil in our world…
Good morning, it is hard to believe that this is the first Sunday in 2019. As I get older I now understand why people always told me that time flies as you get older because it surely does. I cannot believe that Courtney and I have lived here in Monroe County for six months now as of yesterday. It is…
Our society is constantly bombarding us with messages on how we are to be perfect. And if you do not match up to those messages or actually make a mistake, shame and guilt can rush in. This sets us up to judge others according to these social rules in order to build up our own image. There are people today who feel like the church is not a safe place for them, especially if their secrets were known. What kind of church do we want to be? How can we be real with ourselves as well as real with others? What are we willing to do to be the church for the broken? If we are honest with ourselves, we are all broken people. Listen for what Jesus says about those who are broken beyond repair in the eyes of others...
Book of Romans
Many people misunderstand The Law. One reason why is because evangelists and pastors no longer speak of it in regards to the role that it plays in the Gospel message. In this sermon, we unpack the use of the Law and how it condemns, all the while pointing to the necessity of Jesus Christ and His atoning work on our behalf.

About 10 years ago, I had an opportunity to travel to the Lansing state prison with the prison ministry. I was invited to sit on a panel to answer questions after the choir sang and some preaching. After a few questions from the inmates, a young man raised his hand and asked a heartfelt question in response…

CHILDREN’S MESSAGE - The Broken Egg The Challenge for us today as we think of prayer is to remember that Prayer is not a last resort but a fool proof guarantee. Hannah’s story is one of brokenness. Relationship with Elkanah was broken Relationship with Peninnah was broken Relationship with hope was broken…
