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 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 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!
December 27: Pastor Tim will be off this Sunday, and so Roger Fretz will fill in for him. A Story: A Different Perspective
Only one service today.
December 24: “Naming Baby” (Matthew 1:18-25) From Isaiah 9:6 with its four titles to Isaiah 7:14 to which Matthew gives new meaning and purpose, this Christmas Eve message delves into the dual names which reveal the very purpose and meaning of the birth of the Babe of Bethlehem. Listen to this message to delight in the process of naming babies, and to ponder at the power of the names “Emmanuel” and “Jesus”, for He is truly the reason for the season…and the hope for our future!
Recital & Candlelight Service Candlelight service begins at minute 24:22. For full effect we suggest you view it after dark in a dimly lit room. Merry Christmas.
Due to encoding issues again..Christmas eve service was uploaded to You Tube.
December 20: “The Missing Piece About the Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 2:1-5; Ephesians 2:13-18) We’ve all yearned for peace of various sorts and in various ways, and we often hope that Jesus, as the “Prince of Peace”, can bring it to us. Yet as we’ll discover on this fourth Sunday of Advent, peace may not come to us—or to the world—in the way we think. Come hear what Jesus truly does to “make peace”.
So Sorry ..We are still having technical issues with recording our Contemporary service.
Now having issues with the traditional video encoding to the website.
December 13: “He Never Stops Being Your Daddy” (Galatians 4:1-7; Matthew 6:5-9; Mark 14:32-36) On this third Sunday of Advent we see Jesus revealing and epitomizing the intimate nature of God as Father, One Who is tenderly loving and always there for us. Formally this is about our “Everlasting Father”, but really, it’s about being able to say “Who’s your daddy”!
Contemporary Service We apologize for the technical problems with today's contemporary service. To go to the Bible reading and sermon in the traditional recording forward to 33:55
December 06: “Our Great Big Mighty Small Very Handy God” (Psalm 24) Today is the second Sunday of Advent, and brings us to the next title in Isaiah 9:6 often applied to Jesus: “Almighty God”. Psalm 24 is one commonly read and used in Advent, and really helps to define the nature of God…and in turn, of the divinity of the one we worship as the Son of God.
Unfortunately the very end of the Contemporary Service (prayer requests and final songs) did not get recorded due to computer problem. Sermon was recorded in it's entirety
November 29: “It’s A Wonderful Life With the Wonderful Counselor!” (Isaiah 9:6; 40:1-11) Advent begins today, and so does this four-part series covering Advent’s four Sundays. Isaiah 9:6 speaks prophetically about four titles that we see fulfilled in the life of Jesus. The first “name” truly describes Christ’s character as Wonderful Counselor!
November 25: “Thanks, I Needed That!” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18) This Thanksgiving Eve message addresses the truth that, despite the very real trials and tribulations we experience throughout our lives, we can still maintain an attitude of gratitude!
Only One Service
November 22: “Take Every Thought Captive” (2 Corinthians 10:1-5; Psalm 119:1-16) Today begins International Bible Week, so we’ll hear a message emphasizing scripture as a primary way to “take every thought captive” as we engage in the reality of spiritual warfare. Since Jesus used the Bible to fight against Satan, we should also, and today’s sermon will provide three steps that uses and engages scripture to equip us.
November 15: “We Lift Our Lives” (Matthew 19:16-22; Romans 12:1-2; Ephesians 5:1-2; Malachi 3:6-12 The “We Are An Offering” finale is entitled by the song’s third line, which is truly the entirety of who we are, and not merely what we do. From our lifestyle to our livelihood, as stewards we are meant both to reflect and manifest all Who Jesus is and does, with every part of our being. Come this Sunday to glorify Him, and be glorified by Him.
November 08 ~ Buried Treasure ~ "The Treasure Principle" Guest Speaker : Bob Ladd
November 01: “We Lift Our Voices” (Psalm 96; Hebrews 13:15) Today is the first Sunday of a three-part Stewardship series based upon the song “We Are An Offering”, the first line of which is the sermon title. As stewards we are called by God to care responsibly for a number of things, and the LORD graciously equips and empowers us to fulfill those responsibilities. Listen to this message to discern ways we serve Jesus and others with our voices.
