January 03: “Changes: Chances and Challenges” (Acts 1:6-8; 2:37-47; 6:1-7; 8:1b-4; 10:9-16) This sermon sets the stage for the New Year, recognizing that we make resolutions because we recognize we need to make changes in our lives…and in our church. Changes can be real chances and opportunities for improvements, but they can also result in difficult challenges to overcome. Come hear how we need to change the way we do worship and discipleship as the people of Cornwall!
January 10: “If A Tree Falls” (Psalm 139:1-12; Matthew 10:24-33) Simply put, today’s message is about the providence of God, but it also involves trees, eggs, and a bunch of birds from chickens to sparrows. By the time you finish listening to this sermon, you should know not only the nature of God’s providence, but also its purpose, for YOUR greater good! January 17: “Pro-Life, By Choice” (Psalm 139:13-18; Jeremiah 1:4-8) This message is not meant to be political but biblical. It covers the difficult issue of abortion, and seeks to address and correct the abuses of both sides of this difficult dilemma. As you listen to this sermon, work hard to hear God speak, for the LORD is both the Sovereign Creator and the Sovereign Protector of life.
January 24: “God Is On the Move” Series, #1 of 4: “The Holy Spirit Moves In” (John 14:12-17; 1 Corinthians 2:12-3:3) This begins a four-part series which as a whole is entitled “God Is On the Move”, and indeed, the Church itself would never move or change or do what the Lord created it to do unless the Holy Spirit initiates, inspires, and induces the people of God to get going! Come listen to this message not only to discover Who is moving in, but also HOW we are to respond.
January 31: “God Is On the Move” Series, #2 of 4: “The Pastor Moves Over” (Mark 1:16-20; Ephesians 4:11-16) One thing pastors and laity have in common is that sometimes neither one of them do their job. By this I don’t mean they do nothing; I mean that too often, they do the wrong job: the pastor very often does what the Lord intends laity to do, and the laity do something other than the job God calls them to do. To straighten us all out, be sure to come this Sunday and hear a message that gets both pastors and laity to the right job, and thus the right place in the church’s ministry! [NOTE: This week emphasizes the pastor’s job more, and next week the laity’s.]
