Robbery & Restitution: the Reality of Being Redeemed! ~ Exodus 22:1-15; John 107:1-10 ~ 06/09/2013 PM ~ Pastor Brad Meinders
"You shall not steal." The eighth commandment seems pretty straightforward, right? Do not go into a grocery store and pocket a Snickers without paying. that's easy to understand. However, we need to spend some more time on this commandment because it points straight to the good news of Jesus.
More and More ~ 1 Thessalonians 4:1-12 ~ 06/02/2013 PM ~ Pastor Mark Hofman
We continue to look at the second table of the ten commandments as we ask ourselves the question: What do I owe my neighbor? This question becomes particularly important considering the seventh commandment - "you shall not commit adultery." Turning to 1 Thessalonians 4:1-12 we will find that God desires our sanctification and that living in order to please him is something we should do "More and More."
With Actions and in Truth ~ 1 John 3:11-18 ~ 05/26/2013 PM ~ Pastor Mark Hofman
As we continue to work through the Ten Commandments in our "Churchill Confession" series, we come to the sixth command: you shall not murder. To understand God's will in the sixth commandment we will turn to 1 John 3:11-18 as we discern what it means to love "With Actions and in Truth".
Rules Through Roles ~ LD #39 ~ Proverbs 4:1-9 ~ 05/19/2013 ~ Pastor Brad Meinders
We continue in our study of the Ten Commandments as explained in the Heidelberg Catechism by turning to Proverbs 4:1-9. With this passage of Scripture, we will hear what God says concerning the fifth commandment that instructs us to "honor your father and mother."
To Work or Not to Work? That's NOT the Question ~ Genesis 2:1-3 ~ 05/12/2013 ~ Pastor Brad Meinders
How do you spend your Sundays? Does it matter how we spend our Sundays? The fourth commandment is a highly misunderstood and also a highly neglected command that some believe or at least act as if it does not apply to the church today.
His Word is My Bond ~ Matthew 5:33-37 ~ 4/28/13 PM ~ Pastor Mark Hofman
The third commandment is all about how serious God takes his reputation. This not only applies tour names for God, it applies to the reliability of our words. In Lords' Day 37 of the Heidelberg Catechism we will look at how taking oaths is all about "His Word is My bond."
Cheap vs Costly Forgiveness ~ Luke 15:11-32; 2 Corinthians 2:5-11 ~ 04/21/2013 AM ~ Pastor Mark Hofman
This isn't just what Moms say when we let slip a cuss word or take God's name in vain. This is what God says in Scripture to help us image Him and keep our promises. This sermon in the series has us looking at James 3 with the help of the Heidelberg Catechism Q & A's 99 - 100 to help us in the taming of our tongues.
