Dear God; Part 5: When Should I Pray?

Dear God; Part 5: When Should I Pray?

We are continuing this week in our series on prayer! This series has consisted of us looking at the importance of prayer as well as what it practically looks like in our daily lives. We are constantly hearing that prayer is important. But hearing it and even saying it doesn’t always mean that we live like it is true in our daily lives. Our desire is that, through this series, this reality would change and that prayer would become a huge part of each of our lives.

We believe that as His identity is revealed to us, our identity is also revealed to the world in how we respond.

In this week’s sermon, Pastor Isaac continues on the topic of pain and suffering as we go through John chapter 11.

In this week’s podcast, we are finishing up the series about critiquing others in their sin. Leading up to this week, Pastor Isaac has addressed who we should address in their sin as well as how we should go about it. Now, we hear from a panel of individuals answering some questions that have come up throughout the series. The panel includes Jerry Ireland, Donna Washburn, and Jacob Shaffer.

Stamp of Approval; Part 3

Stamp of Approval; Part 3

This week Pastor Isaac continues our series on the topic of critiquing others in their sin. In the first week, we found that all critique must be done from a humble heart and not out of prideful condescension. In week two, we saw that, when talking with a non-Christian, it is better to point to Christ than to their specific sins. Now this week, Pastor Isaac argues, from Scripture, that once they have turned to Christ, it is our obligation to persist for each-other’s holiness out of a love for one another.

Stamp of Approval; Part 1

This week Pastor Isaac starts a new sermon series on the topic of critiquing others in their sin. With this comes many questions. Is it our right to call others out in the way they are living? If so, what is the most appropriate way to do it? Should we only call out Christians and not say anything to non-believers? These will all be addressed in this series through the consideration of what Scripture says on the topic. In this first week, Pastor Isaac lays a foundation by asserting that, in any critique we may have of others, we should always do it out of humility knowing that we, in ourselves, are no better.

The Book of Ruth; Part 6

The Book of Ruth; Part 6

This week Pastor Isaac continues our six week series through the book of Ruth. Though this book doesn't make many mentions of God's actions, we find that every chapter is filled with signs of Him faithfully working in the background. Specifically at the books last few verses, we see that God is faithful to care for the broken and, often times, He does this through unqualified people.

Though this book doesn't make any mention of God's actions, we find that every chapter is filled with signs of Him faithfully working in the background. Specifically looking at chapter 2 this week, through the way Boaz cares for Ruth, we are able to see how a small glimpse into how God cares for us. Just as Boaz protects and provides for Ruth, so God also protects and provides for His people.

Specifically looking at 1:8-22, Pastor Isaac addresses the call we have, as Christians, to remain faithful to God over all other things. For, even if He is the only good thing in our lives, it is far better than we could ever fathom and much more than we could ever deserve.

Together

Together

As we say "good bye" to the seniors and we welcome the 6th graders, Pastor Isaac addresses the topic of being the together. From Jesus' prayer in John 17:21-23, we see that believers today are called to be united for the sake of our witness to the lost world around us. Though we do not all worship in the same place or worship in the same way, we should be able to embrace one another as a fellow brother or sister in Christ. 

Nine2Five; Part 3: Work in Dependency

Nine2Five; Part 3: Work in Dependency

This week Pastor Isaac finishes our series on work. The hope that Pastor Isaac and the ETYM team has for this series is that students will see what it means to work hard in all that one does as a Christian. For this first sermon, Pastor Isaac looked Exodus 31:12-15 and talks about how to work as a Christian at what we do, we must find find our strength in Him rather than ourselves. This is done through the Sabbath. With this perspective, we can't afford not to take a Sabbath.
