Believe Only

This week we’re looking at Luke 8:22-56.  It begins with Jesus and his disciples getting into a boat to go to the other side of a lake.  While they’re sailing, Jesus falls asleep and a squall suddenly comes down on the lake.  The disciples, (some of...

We Are More Than Conquerors

(Romans 8:28-39) If someone said to me, “Mark, you are such a conqueror”, I’d be laughing in this person’s face just like Sarah when she laughed at God for telling her she’d be pregnant. Can’t blame her! She and Abraham were 90 and 100 years of age respectively. But...

How to cope with grief on Mother’s Day

I thought I’d share with you an article written by Sharon Betters. I pray that God will use it like all the articles in our bulletin, to speak to your heart. Since 1994 I have wished I could jump over Mother's Day. It's supposed to be a day of honor, remembering our...

Is God Ok With Our Doubts?

“Are you the Messiah we’ve been expecting, or should we keep looking for someone else?” – Luke 7:19 Have you ever doubted God, His character and His ways? Have you ever been tempted to stop believing in God altogether, like Richard in Philip Yancey’s book,...

Service of Healing

He is Risen

It’s Easter Sunday and I don’t want to write about eggs or bunnies, chickens or bilbies.  They seem so trite next to the grand and wonderful truth of this day.  He is risen!  · The one who cried, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Ps...

Why do you do what you do?

Not long after a new pastor begins his ministry at a little rural church, he notices something interesting that would happen every Sunday. At the start of the service, the entire congregation would sit on the left side of the building. After the offering is taken...

Growing Strong with Support

I’m fascinated by one of my potted succulents. It was growing strong, reaching up to the light. Then the growth spurt must have gotten a bit too much. At first it collapsed under its own success but, over the next day or so, two outside leaves drew in close to the...

A Day in the Life of Jesus

For this week’s sermon, we’re looking at Luke 4:31-44.  It’s an account of a day in the life of Jesus.  He begins his day by teaching in a synagogue.  His listeners are quick to recognise that he speaks with authority and this is further demonstrated...
