The first three Sundays of June are individual sermons which will stand on their own. On the fourth and final Sunday of June, Pastor Tim begins a series where the messages are not topically related, but share the commonality of being 3 of something! He carries this into July.
June 07: “Drunk in the Spirit” (Acts 2:1-13) This Pentecost sermon by Pastor Tim reveals that while alcohol-induced drunkenness diminishes us and causes us to act poorly and foolishly, Spirit-induced drunkenness may appear to make us act foolishly, but actually increases our intimacy with the Lord and empowers us to do His kingdom work.
June 14: “Can Any Good Come Out of This Pandemic?” (Selected verses from Genesis 37; Romans 8:28)
Guest Speaker: Bob Ladd affirms that we can produce good from what is perceived as evil if we love God and accept the call to invite His son Jesus Christ into our heart as our personal savior.
June 21: “The Masks of Our Lives” (Selected Short Scriptures)
Guest Speaker: Roger Fretz shares that the peoples of the world are being encouraged and in some places mandated to wear masks in attempting to slow the spread of the corona virus. In an “upside down kingdom” manner, God is at work challenging his people to remove the masks that are serving to protect those viruses that would destroy our souls. There are multiple encounters in scripture which show that the heart of God is healing and restoration. Identifying and relinquishing our masks is crucial in this journey.
June 28: “Three Traits of a Hero” (Genesis 39:6b-12; Joshua 1:1-9; 2 Chronicles 20:1-24;Hebrews 11:32-40)
The word “hero” is now used more freely and broadly than it used to be. We celebrate those who get us through tough times, like the firefighters and police officers and EMTs during 9/11, or the doctors, nurses, researchers, and teachers during Covid-19. But what makes a hero? The bible has some great examples, three of which we’ll identify in part one of “The 3 on 3’s” series!

July 05: “Triple 3:16” (1 John 3:11-18)
John 3:16 is probably the best known and most quoted verse in the bible—and no wonder! It speaks of God’s love to us all. But there are a couple of other 3:16s that take this core truth and expands it, so that God’s love permeates our lives in multiple directions and dimensions. July 12: “Three Essential Prayers” (Ephesians 1:15-20)
We are often called and encouraged to pray. Sometimes, though, we may wonder about WHAT we should pray—if anything—after we’ve prayed about one’s own needs and those of others. This message will identify, in a Trinitarian fashion, three prayer foci (plural of focus!) that will draw us closer to our Three-in-One God, and give our prayer life new purpose, passion, and power! July 19: “We Are Temples of Worship” (John 4:19-26)
Lucas Ndaro will preach from a portion of the story of Jesus and the woman at the well. The focus of this message will be that the Holy Spirit initiates True Worship is us wherever we are…and it also follows and can be said, whoever we are, and whatever we’ve done! July 26: “Three Who Begged” (Mark 5:1-20)
In today’s scripture there are three categories of beings who deeply desired something from Jesus. Who are they, and what did they crave? Were these wants good or bad? Did Jesus grant their requests? Listen to the sermon and find out!
