Rediscover the Joy of Christmas! - Luke 1:39-55

Series The Truth of Advent (Part2) - In the first sermon in this Advent series we discovered that Christ came into the world not only to die for our sins, but also to free us from "the power of canceled sin." To dramatize this message, we looked at a clip from a recent presentation of Charles Dickens' beloved classic, "A Christmas Carol," in which Ebenezer Scrooge's deceased business partner, Jacob Marley, makes a night time appearance to Scrooge and warns Scrooge that he must make changes in his life to avoid the painful eternal consequences of his life choices. During this second sermon we see and hear the "Spirit of Christmas Past" remind Scrooge that Scrooge knew the joy of Christmas in his youth. Tragically, Scrooge gave up that joy for the love of material gain and greed. Pastor Terry tells you that God wants you to understand the gift of his Son, Jesus, as God's power to make changes in your life that will enable you to experience the real joy of Christmas as your normal every day experience. The teen Mary, mother of Jesus, God's Savior for the world, shows us how courage is the way to joy. Rediscover the joy of Christmas by facing something painful in your life that can be changed and by seeking God's help in assisting you to act courageously so that it may be transformed, healed and given new life.

Breaking The Chains - Luke 4:14-21

Series: The Truth of Advent (Part 1) - On this second Sunday of Advent Pastor Terry brings forth a strong message about spiritual captivity. We must Break the chains of the sin that God has forgiven us for as well as forgotten. WE sometimes fail to forget and let those past sins leave our memories. We must break the power of canceled sins.

Don't Give Up! - Luke 24:1-8

Series: Preparing for What's Ahead (Part 9) - In the ninth and concluding sermon in this series, Pastor Terry discloses what the Bible tells us about where history is headed and how it will end. Rather than presenting us with an appealing fantastic ending that is the product of a miraculous turn of events, the witness of the Scriptures is that the decisive moment for history's future occurred in the past. The resurrection of Jesus Christ defines and determines how God will triumph in the continuing struggle between good and evil. While there are more than enough reasons to be disheartened by the worsening condition of the world, there is this one reason to hold fast and move forward with the greatest of confidence and hope. The early Church lived by the watchword "Maranatha!" Pastor Terry urges present day followers of Christ to embrace and greet one another with the glorious and uplifting watchword, "The Kingdom comes!"

Looking to God to save You - Matthew 21:6-11

Series: Preparing for What's Ahead (Part 8) - The eighth and next-to-last sermon in the series, "Preparing for What's Ahead," lifts up the importance of national revival. If you have sought God's forgiveness, the evidence of God's work in your life is both a changed personal life and a life dedicated to working for godly transformation in your community, country and the world. You will hear in this sermon that God's tolerance for sin is not infinite, and that the opportunity for people to repent and seek God's mercy is limited. You will learn that previous nationwide spiritual revivals, or "awakenings," have been preceded by Christians responding to calls to pray. ***** Pastor Terry appeals for a commitment to covenant to pray for a national revival, while there is yet time to do so. A copy of the "Covenant to Pray" will be emailed to anyone who requests it. Phone 401-822-2070 and provide your email address. Please pronounce each letter of your email address and give a word example (e.g., "b" as in boy, etc.). Note: The final sermon in this series will be preached on November 29, 2009. *****
