Is God in the Voting Booth? – Psalm 146:3-5 – 11/4/18 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
As you listen to this lesson, the 2018 Midterm elections may be over (or maybe you already voted), but it seems that today we live in a perpetual election cycle.  Politics is on the mind of many individuals, and discussions about those in office and the policies they make is a constant on social media. But God’s Word has some things to say to us that we ought to keep in mind when we step into the voting booth, whatever election we may be participating in.

Evangelism (Part 2) – 11/4/18 Bible Class

Teacher: Matt Burleson
The importance of evangelism cannot be stressed enough in the church today. Our mission, given to us by the Lord Himself, is to go out and make disciples by teaching the gospel (Matthew 28:19-29; Mark 16:15-16).  If we’re not willing to do this work, then we are disobeying a direct command, and guilty of sin.

Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free: Forgiving Others Lesson 2 – 10/31/18 Bible Class

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
Forgiving others is not easy.  But it is possible.  If it were not possible, God would not have commanded it of us.  More than that, if it were not possible, He would not have told us that we cannot be forgiven unless we are forgiving.  In this lesson, from Chapter 3 of Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free by Dan Winkler, we take a look at two suggestions that can help us in forgiving others.

Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free: Forgiving Others Lesson 1 – 10/24/18 Bible Class

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
In this lesson, beginning the third chapter of Bro. Dan Winkler’s book Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free, we make one observation.  Forgiving others is not easy.  It is not natural for us, and it is quite often something we just don’t want to do.  But it is something we must do.  The Bible clearly teaches that if we do not forgive, we will not be forgiven.

Edification – 10/21/18 Bible Class

Teacher: Matt Burleson
One of the main focuses of the church should be the edification, or building up, of its members.  This is done through being of one fellowship, united on the foundation of the word of God.  It’s not just about having fun together, but of sharing in the “joint-participation” of being united in Christ

Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free: Forgiving Myself Part 3 – 10/17/18 Bible Class

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
Understanding that we are forgiven is easy enough, but feeling as though we are forgiven is another matter.  It is important that we learn to see ourselves and our past sins in the same way that God does, so that we can fully enjoy the knowledge of our forgiveness.

Congregational Cooperation (part 1) – 10/7/18 Bible Class

Teacher: Matt Burleson
As we continue to study the church and the work that we are called today, we need to consider congregations working together to accomplish that work.  We are one body in Christ, but we are composed of many different congregations.  Can we, and if so, how do we work together with other congregations?  What are the limits on this?  How can we be careful not to overstep when it comes to this topic?

Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free: Forgiving Myself Lesson 1 – 10/3/18 Wednesday Bible Class

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
The second chapter of Bro. Dan Winkler’s book, Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free, focuses on the subject of forgiving self.  We have a hard time feeling forgiven because we struggle with forgiving ourselves.  We tend to focus on the sins of our past, rather than the God who has forgiven those things.  In these lesson on forgiving self, we’re work to see ourselves through the eyes of God, and have confidence in our forgiveness.
