1 Corinthians 6:1-11

This week we open our Bibles to 1 Corinthians 6:1-11 and–oh my–what a practical and challenging passage written to an immature and problematic people! Chapter five challenged the church’s pride and unwillingness to respond to public and flagrant sexual sin. Now, there’s another black eye on the face of this church. What was it?  They couldn’t resolve…

Romans 13:1-7

As we open up Romans chapter 13 we have our chance to discuss politics and religion from God’s word on the same morning!  That should make for an interesting study! As followers of Jesus in the first century and the 21st century we have discussed our relationship to God and to each other.  What about our…

God shows that only he is the righteous judge; that our judgement always fails because we do the very thing we judge others for! Listen…

Acts 1:18-32

Matthew 7:1-5 (Communion Sunday)

For communion Sunday, Pastor Steve is teaching a series about relationships in the context of our faith. Matthew chapter 7 gives us a humorous picture of the “speck” and the “log” to compare and contrast our quickness to judge others versus the way we see ourselves and our sins and mistakes. Pastor Steve exhorts us…
