Last night, we finished our Lenten series, "Words from the Cross." Our message focused on the last words Jesus spoke prior to his death, the word os committal. Before dying, Jesus committed his spirit into the hands of the Father. Like Jesus, we too must commit ourselves into God's care because we have no control over death or the life after. And with Jesus' sacrifice, we also know that, when we die, we will be welcomed into his loving arms. This message can he heard or downloaded at

In our message this Sunday, we saw Abraham obey God's command to sacrifice his son as a burnt offering. God stopped him at the last moment, but we see in this that Abraham was a man of extraordinary faith. He was willing to obey God and trust his promise no matter what. This is a faith we all need as we face decisions about whether to obey Christ or disobey, believe him or disbelieve. You can hear it at

In the series we've been hearing on Wednesday evenings, we come to one of Jesus' final words spoken from the cross. Prior to his death, he declared that it is finished. When he said this, he was saying that his work of redemption was complete and that the penalty of our sins had been paid. There's no more that needs to be done; there's no more that can be done.

In our series, "Our Father Abraham," we see that God confirmed his promise to Abraham. He also added that he would have a son with Sarah and that this would be the child through whom he'd establish his covenant. Instead of doubting God, instead of trying to do it his own way, Abraham believed God in a spirit of amazement. In the same way, we too need to trust God even when his promises seem unrealistic.

On Wednesday night, in our series "Words from the Cross", we looked at the word of desolation. While hanging on the cross, Jesus asked God why he had forsaken him. When we look at what Jesus was enduring, along with the testimony of Scripture, we find that he was truly experiencing the judgment of God. In this message we look at why this was the case and what it means for us. You can hear this message at

In our series "Our Father Abraham" we see this week that Abraham was a man of mercy. When God discussed with him the destruction of Sodom, Abraham interceded for the righteous of the city. He didn't want to see them suffer the same fate as the wicked. We, in the church today, need to have this same heart. We too should go to God pleading for the salvation of his people in a world that is facing his judgment. This message can be heard at

During our Lenten service last night, we looked at another word of Jesus from the cross. We see that Jesus, as he was dying, was concerned about his mother's welfare and provision in this world, and he provided for that. In the same way, he's also concerned not only about our salvation, but also about our needs in this life. This message can be heard at

This Sunday, we looked at another failure of Abraham and what we can learn from it. We see that, because of their outward circumstances, Abram and Sarai tried to fulfill God's promise their own way. We often do the same thing. But God doesn't need our wisdom or insight to determine the best way to accomplish his purpose. God is able to do everything he's promised and he's faithful to his Word.

Sunday, we were forced to cancel church do to bad weather. However, on Wednesday night we continued our series "Words from the Cross" with a message titled "The Word of Assurance." As Jesus hung on the cross, he gave the assurance of salvation to one of the thieves who were hanging next to him. We find, as we seach the Scriptures, that God gives the same assurance to each one of us who look to Jesus and trust in him. And because of this, we no longer have to fear death or the judgment of God. You can hear it or download it at
