Everyone is invited into the kingdom, but you have to walk through the gate. It is non- negotiable.
Theme: Jesus Redeemer
 

March 5, 2017
Romans 1:16-17;Deuteronomy 4:1-2,5-14
Covenant 

Covenants were an important means of administration within ancient kingdoms. They always presupposed a king, a domain, a way of life, people, and often mediating servants. We still live under God’s covenant
Theme: God’s Faithfulness
 

March 12
Romans 2:1-11; Matthew 7:1-5
Preaching Against One’s Own Demons

Profession without practice. If we say we are believers we must back up that declaration with how we live our lives.
Theme: Don’t Judge
 

March 19
Romans 2:12-16; Hebrews 4:12-16
Common Grace

The real challenge for people who believe in God; is obeying the rules. We try, but often fail to live up even to our own expectations. 
Theme: The problem with hypocrisy
 

March 26
Romans 3:1-6; 2 Peter 3:8b-13
Much is Required

The Gospel is Politically Incorrect by today’s standards.  It proclaims that there is right and wrong; God defines morality. God is just and because of God’s righteousness must judge sin.
Theme: God’s judgment

Money Issues Within a Marriage

Marriage is God’s plan for joining a man and a woman. It is a real joy for two individuals to come together, grow together, and raise a family together. Marriage is a wonderful gift from God who is the giver of all good gifts. B.J. Hoff wrote, “Marriage is God’s gift of unity. A promise that affirms both love and life, a pledge that brings two hearts and two lives together, uniting them forever, husband and wife.”
