  • 1 John 2:15 — Deacons Lead Us to Love God & Others (Deacons Ordination / Installation Service)

    deacons-bannerI have a new favorite catch phrase when parenting.

    At night cereal bowls randomly are set out. At one spot is a green bowl, at another spot is a blue, yellow or maybe a red bowl. So in the morning the first person up switches the bowl to get their favorite color. Well, when the other child comes down they are heartbroken that someone is using their bowl.

    They come running to me looking for social justice, and I tell them, “I want you to stop caring so much about that sort of thing.” “I don’t really care, and I want you to learn not to care. Grow up.”

    This last month my kids bought tablets with their Christmas money. And they will sit for hours staring at them, playing games and such. And when we ask them to put them down we get expressions of extreme anguish that they have to walk away from their tablets.

    So as parents we say, “I need you ...

  • The Old & New Command to Love

    1 John 2 7-11 -- The Old & New Command to Love FirstPresTucker ARPChurch Anthony R LockeMy family enjoys playing board games. Battleship, Blockus, War, Go Fish and other family card games. Those moments are precious because we are together. We are enjoying fellowship and family togetherness. We do not gather around the kitchen table to read and study the rule book and then play to keep the rules. The rules of the game are incidental. Necessary, but not the focus. There is no joy in rule keeping. The joy is in the people we gather around the table.

    The moment really isn’t about the game, it’s about the fellowship, and when we take our eyes off the joy of our fellowship the moment is lost. Life is like the board game. God wants you at His table. He calls you to Himself. God gathers you around His table. We all take our turns and enjoy fellowship together. At the end of the ...


  • Did Jesus Really Descend into Hell?
    Apostle’s Creed Series John 20:24-31

    24 Now Thomas, one of the Twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came.

    25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe.”

    26 Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.”

    27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.”

    28 Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!”

    29 Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

  • Is the National Debt a Sin?

     

    Reverend Anthony R. Locke

    Nehemiah 5:1-13 English Standard Version

    1 Now there arose a great outcry of the people and of their wives against their Jewish brothers.

    2 For there were those who said, “With our sons and our daughters, we are many. So let us get grain, that we may eat and keep alive.”

    3 There were also those who said, “We are mortgaging our fields, our vineyards, and our houses to get grain because of the famine.”

    4 And there were those who said, “We have borrowed money for the king’s tax on our fields and our vineyards.

    5 Now our flesh is as the flesh of our brothers, our children are as their children. Yet we are forcing our sons and our daughters to be slaves, and some of our daughters have already been enslaved, but it is not in our power to help it, for other men have our fields and our vineyards.”

    6 I was very angry when I heard ...
