"Mary’s Song" - Bill Ford Scripture(s): Luke 1:39-56 Sunday, December 6, 2015
There are many "songs" in the Bible found in both the Old and New Testaments. This week we will look at the most famous biblical song, the Song of Mary. It's loaded with rich meaning that will add significance to the Advent season.

"Barron No More" - Bill Ford Scripture(s): Luke 1:5-25 Sunday, November 22, 2015

"Nice People and Heaven" - Bill Ford Scripture(s): Luke 16:19-31 Sunday, November 8, 2015
What does the Bible have to say about being a "nice" person and going to heaven? Is being nice a prerequisite to entering heaven? Is being nice an automatic ticket to heaven? We'll probe into this relevant issue this Sunday in our study together.
"The Problem of Prayer" - Jason Rodenbeck Scripture(s): James 5:13-20 Sunday, May 18, 2014
We finished up our study of James today by studying James' teaching on prayer. Some of the things James says can give the wrong impression if we don't read them properly.
"Be Patient Together" - Jason Rodenbeck Scripture(s): James 5:7-12 Sunday, May 11, 2014
In the prior passage, James addresses oppressive employers--the wealthy and poweful. In this passage, James addresses the oppressed with hope and with encouragement to endure difficulty together.
"God Cares About Your Horrible Job!" - Jason Rodenbeck Scripture(s): James 5:1-6 Sunday, May 4, 2014
Many of us have work situations which are less-than pleasant. However, some people end up trapped in jobs which are downright oppressive. In this chapter, James gives a warning to the rich and powerful, those who lead in the workplace, that they have a responsibility to the people who work for them. And we learn that God will hold people accountable for the way they treat others.
"Why did Jesus Ascend?" - Jason Rodenbeck Scripture(s): Acts 1 Sunday, April 27, 2014
Today we reviewed the ascension story in Acts chapter 1. We wanted to finish our series on the "Why" questions about Jesus by asking why he ascended. We concluded that Jesus' ascension was a sign that he is not dead but that it is his church's turn to do the work of the kingdom!
