Series: A Heart of Hope

by Matthew

Christians have something that non-Christians don’t. This difference isn’t merely subjective. It is more than an attitude or an outlook on life. Christians have hope. Hope is more than a feeling. Hope is bigger than a wish for a brighter tomorrow. Hope is the confident expectation that God will in fact keep his promises–no matter […]

Sermon Series: Heart of Worship

by Matthew

Churches spend a lot of time talking about worship, but the discussion usually centers around what, how, when, and where. “Worship wars” are often the cause of church splits and much of the division in the religious world. In this series, we don’t spend as much time focusing on what and how; we focus on […]

by Matthew

Each year, our young people spend several weeks studying approximately 20-25 chapters of scripture in preparation for a test given in Cookeville, TN. Young people from several states and over 100 congregations meet together. […]

Life Simplified: A Study of Ecclesiastes

by Matthew

Life is complicated. We have bills to pay, families to tend to, chores to do, jobs to work, things to do, places to go… Parents like to say they feel more like a taxi cab service than they do anything else, always running from one thing to the next. Solomon’s Ecclesiastes gives us a different […]
