Sermons on Sin

One Book: Galatians

Galatians: Freed for Freedom In most of Paul’s letters that we read in the New Testament, he took a good bit of time at the beginning of each one to compliment and encourage the recipients of that letter. But with the Galatians, Paul doesn’t pull any punches; he just dives right in! He is perplexed by them, […]

One Book: Zephaniah

Zephaniah: When God Cleans House For many of us, spring triggers a time to evaluate our stuff. We get to a point when the clutter we’ve accumulated starts to drive us crazy. Then, to our relief, the day finally comes when we take inventory, box up the junk, and send it away for good! Isn’t is such a great feeling […]

One Book: Micah

Micah: Hope for a Nation in Trouble It was the late James Montgomery Boice who said that we can see so many reminders of ourselves and our own era as we read the Minor Prophets. It’s true, isn’t it? Most of us American Christians would say that our own nation is in trouble – in trouble […]

Why was that? Join Pastor Larry McCall as we take a break from our “One Book” series for Palm Sunday. We’ll see that Jesus’ rejection, […]

One Book: 2 Kings

2 Kings: Hope in Despair After Solomon came a line of kings who did what was evil in God’s sight. God’s people slowly drifted away from His Word and sought after other gods, idols. And as is often the case, Israel had to live with the consequences from their sinful choices. But God didn’t leave them without […]

One Book: Judges

Judges: God’s People Need a King Have you ever been stuck in a rut? Maybe you can’t quite break a certain habit or you just feel like something needs to be changed up. We all face times in our lives when we’re stuck in rut, and it can be very frustrating. The Israelites were stuck […]
