Text:            Psalm 139
This message deals with those who at this time of the year find Christmas not so joyful due to unpleasant circumstances like death of a loved one or by sickness.  Psalms 139 presents us a God that cares for us by being a God who is in control of our circumstances.

Text:             Luke 2: 8-38
This message deals with  the announcements of Christ birth to the shepherds taking care of their sheep near Bethlehem by angels. This announcement was unique and special in that it was not made to kings or even religious leaders of that day but to shepherds caring for their flocks.
January 5, 2020  "God's Abounding Grace"
Text:             Romans 5: 12-21

January 12, 2020  "If Jesus Returns in 2020, Will You Be Ready?"
Text:             Revelation 22
This message  focuses on the possibility that the Lord may return after His church this year. Of course we do not know when He will return, but if he comes are we ready to receive him? Our text tells us that Jesus' coming is imminent,  and we need to make sure we have made the necessary preparations.
January 26, 2020    "Adam, Where Art Thou?"
Text:             Genesis 3:7-13
This message  focuses on the grace of God when God asked Adam a simple question question "Adam, where art thou?" Adam and Eve had sinned but it is God seeking Adam not Adam seeking God.
February 2, 2020    "Who Am I?"
Text:              Exodus 3:1-12
This message  focuses on the question that Moses asked God when the Lord choose him to stand before Pharaoh. Moses response is like many of us "Why me?" "Who am I to stand before Pharaoh and command anything?" is the response Moses gave God when He chose him to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt.

February 16, 2020    "God's Compassionate Mercy"
Text:              Exodus 2: 23-25
This message  focuses on the the compassion God showed to Israel in delivering them from the bondage of Egypt. In like manner, God showed us compassion by sending His son to die on the cross for our sins. We show in this message the difference in God being compassionate versus God being actively compassionate in sending His son.
February 23, 2020    "Who Really Is Jesus Christ?"
Text:              Matthew 16:13-20
This message  focuses ask a simple question, "Who really is Jesus Christ?"  As Christ begins to make his journey to the cross from a Gentile territory called Caesarea Philippi, he wanted to make sure His disciples  knew His identity. He ask them two questions: (1.) Who do men say I am? and (2) Who do you say the I am? In like manner, every sinner  must understand who Jesus is and what he did for the cross.


March 1, 2020    "Is There Not A Cause?"
Text:              I Samuel 17: 19-30
This message  focuses  on the young shepherd boy David who asked his brother, "Is there not a cause?" when his brother became angry for his coming to see the battle of the Philistines. Many folks know the story of David and Goliath, but what is not known is the spiritual lessons in this chapter. We focus on the spiritual battles every believer faces, and what God uses to give us victory in our battles in the giants in our lives.

March 8, 2020    "The Clouds Are The Dust of His Feet"
Text:              Nahum 1: 1-7
This message  focuses  on the dark clouds that appear in our lives. We have a tendency when disaster strikes, we blame God for whatever is happening. We fail to see the big picture that God is using these events so we may see His greatness. You see It is these clouds in our lives that tells us that God is there for "the clouds are the dust of His feet."
March 15, 2020    "The Sayings of Christ on The Cross"
Text:              Luke 23:13-45
This message  focuses  on the seven sayings of Christ on the cross. This is one part of a three part message over next few weeks before Easter. We focused on the first two sayings of Christ on the cross; (1.)'Father forgive them" and (2.) "Today shalt thou be with me in paradise." These two statements is what we call the "Words of Forgiveness" and the "Words of Hope."
