Grace concludes our series on Party Time with the celebration of Pentecost reminding us that we need to be continually refueled by the Holy Spirit.
Grace looks at the promise of healing and restoration found in Isaiah 44:1-5 for God’s chosen people, intimately known and named, in all our brokenness.
Do you feel involved in your faith? Or are you standing in the corner? Have we passed through the gate of faith?
Dave Middlebrook, continuing our Party Time theme, talks about Jesus statement in John 10: “I am the gate”. When we pass through the gate of Christ we are promised abundant life, life in all its fullness. We must claim this inheritance that will never perish, spoil or fade. (1 Peter 1:4)
Greg Wiley continues our Lent series on The Road to Discipleship with a talk on worship looking at Jesus’ anointing in Bethany found in John 12:1-8 and Paul’s own testimony from Philippians 3:4-14.
Continuing our series on Famous Prayers, Neil Brookes, our Youth Director, gives a talk on unity based on Jesus’ prayer found in John 17:1-26.
Neil begins the sermon by erecting a barrier between himself and the congregation using a table on its side and climbing a step-ladder as a visual aid highlighting disunity.
The other reading accompanying this sermon is 1 Timothy 2:1-6.
