Current Sermon Series - Videos

Life is full of uncertainties.  One day things are going well and the next it seems the apple cart has been turned upside down. “When Darkness Closes In” is a fall spiritual growth series designed to encourage, build up and equip Christians to walk by faith and trust God in prayer through trying times. John 1:5 says, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not understood it.” Inspired by the miraculous healing of Yvette Rindels from blindness, the Rindels will share what God has taught them through their trials. You will learn how God is in control in all situations, how He is glorified through our hardships, how His grace is sufficient, how there is power in many people praying, the role of faith in miracles, and how believers should react when their prayers appear to not be answered.  There is a way to walk in victory when darkness closes in!

Luke 11:5-13

Have you ever noticed in the news media the one big event, tragedy, calamity, or social upheaval can occur and it blankets the news for a week or so and then things move on?  We often never hear the final results of the election, the trial, the calamity or the tragedy because the news has moved on to the next big story.  Our minds jump from one thing to another like lightning.  We can remember what happened 2 weeks ago let alone a month or a year ago.

I share this because we are a society that often lets this thinking infect our Christian lives.  We jump from one thing to another without remembering what the concerns were a week or month ago.  We forget to pray for those needs that we should remember and be persistent over the long haul until our Heavenly Father answers.

  • Sermon - Persistence Generates Results

    Jesus told a parable about a man who had a guest come and didn't have any food for him.  So the host went to his neighbor and asked for help and received it because he persisted in asking even when the man would be inconvenienced.  This parable was told to demonstrate the importance of persistence in our prayer life.

Acts 12:1-17

One of the important principles of powerful prayer is getting many people praying together for a common purpose.  God never intended us to be Lone Ranger Christians.  We are to be in fellowship with others and that means praying with them.

We often hear people say, "Well, I just pray at home by myself."  Or "I don't pray with others because I'm embarrassed to pray out loud."  Or, "God can hear me whenever I am so why do I need to pray with others?"  There is an important spiritual principle and that is there is power in many people praying together.

  • Sermon - Many Prayers Produce Power

    When the church prays together in force, there is power that is released for amazing answers coming from the very Throne of God.

1 Samuel 1:1-28

When darkness closes in on our lives, we often frantically go to God in prayer.  That is a good thing!  However, why doesn't God answer our prayers immediately?  For reasons known only to Him, He often heals and meets our desperate needs over time.  In the meantime, He is developing patience in us and building our character.

  • Sermon - Patience is Developed

    In the story of the birth of Samuel, Hannah had been barren for quite some time and had prayed that God would open her womb.  But she was not healed at the time she wanted to be healed.  God had a plan!

  • Video Testimony - Ben and Linda

    Darkness did come in, but I know that God was in control...Thank you God that you are full of love and compassion for me, and I can come to you at all times.

2 Corinthians 12:7-10

In our broken world, we experience tragedies, heartaches, brokenness, pain, sickness and accidents.  This was not a part of God's original plan.  But when sin came into the world in the Garden of Eden, these difficulties became a part of life.  All around us and in us are signs of these kind of trials.

  • Sermon - God's Grace is Sufficient to Hold You

    The Apostle Paul learned that God's grace was sufficient to hold him.  He could trust God to see him through the trials.  There is nothing too difficult for God.  In the same way, God's grace is sufficient to hold you.

  • Video Testimony - Jan and Gary

    "Things were rough but by God's grace, I'm without a walker, I'm without a wheelchair, I'm walking, I'm coming to church every chance I get and God has been good through everything."

John 9:1-11

When trouble and trials come our way, it is our natural reaction to ask, "Why Lord?"  But we often are left with no answer.  There is no logical explanation.  Jesus' disciples were perplexed regarding the blind man and why he was born blind.  They assumed that either the man or his parents had sinned.  But Jesus said, "Neither this man nor his parents sinned but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life."

  • Sermon - God Reveals His Power

    In the trials of life, when darkness closes in, God wants to be glorified  by revealing His power through them.

  • Video Testimony - Yvette & Mark Part 2

    "God just gave us these little miracles everyday, it was his way of working.  It wasn't immediate healing, it was a process, but that was what we needed.  And I think his goal was to teach me a lot."

Psalm 27:1-14

There is something built into all human beings that makes us want to be in control.  Whether it is managing our money, taking care of our health, deciding where we will live, shooting a career, or planing our retirement, we really want to be in control.  We falsely believe that this will give us more contentment and a sense of security.  But are we really ever in control?  Is there ever such a time?  NO!

  • Sermon - God is in Control

    King David was going through a troubling time in his life.  In Psalm 27, he cried out to God in a song of confidence and triumph.  He understood that circumstances were not going to dictate his life because ultimately, God is in control

  • Video Testimony - Yvette & Mark Part 1

    "I was kinda having this anxiety thinking, oh my gosh what is happening?  And all I could do was cry out to God...I was praying Jesus help me...all of the sudden I was looking up and it was like these two black drapes were closing in on me."
