Wednesday Night Bible Study:  “Spiritual Armor”  Ephesians 6:10-20  (Multiple parts) An excerpt from Pastor Chris Hall’s notes:  Having put on the breastplate of God’s truth, righteousness, and faithfulness doesn’t mean we no longer associate with the sinner.

“The Light of the World” John 8:12-20

Sunday Morning Sermon Series:  “The Light of the World”  John 8:12-20 One cannot live without making judgments but we must strive not to be judgmental (condemnatory).  We are people of the light though we must walk in a dark world; thus we must use discernment and judge righteously.  We need to be ‘street smart’ Christians…

“Guilty Accusers” John 7:53-8:11

“Harsh Words?” John 6:60-71

Sunday Morning Sermon Series:  “Harsh Words?”  John 6:60-71  Jesus’ words were ‘hard’ and seemingly offensive and divisive. Well, they may have been difficult to take but not so difficult to get.

Sunday Morning Sermon Series:  “Heavenly Hosts’ Herald”  Luke 2:8-14 We have considered Mary’s and Zechariah’s Christmas songs which emphasize Jesus’ character and mission.
