March 7, 2021 – Live Worship Service

Today’s scripture: Exodus 20:1-17 The Ten Commandments seem to form a list of “thou shall not’s” that might lead one to believe our faith is negative, not positive. There really is no argument. There is no “Should I?” but rather, it’s obviously an “I should.” We are burdened in our culture to be “perfect.” We want our children to be at the top of their class. We want to be first chosen. We want to be the “top dog” in…

Feb. 28, 2021 – No Offense

Today’s scripture: Proverbs 18:19, 1 Peter 2:1-3, Ephesians 5:1-2 After a year of enduring the pandemic with it’s isolation, limited mobility, and restrictive interactions, we are all a bit on edge and weary of the limitations. It is easy to fall into the trap of being offended when things don’t go the way we think or wish they would. When offended, it’s easy to blame someone else for what disturbs us or counters our preconceived notion. Sometimes the offense gives…

Feb. 21, 2021 – Learning to Use our Spiritual GPS

Today’s scripture: Psalm 25:1-10 Lent is the perfect season of the year to spend time with God and understanding your call, that is the work God has planned for you. In every season of life, God needs us to accomplish his work in kingdom building, restoration, and healing. Through spiritual disciplines including prayer, fasting, study, and worship, we grow closer to God and as we do, we know him more. Navigating God’s will for our lives – knowing what God…

Feb. 14, 2021 – Live Worship Service

Today’s scripture: 2 Corinthians 2:4-6 When you accept Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life, when you allow the Holy Spirit freedom to work in you, then you gain freedom, power, and realize the fullness of God’s love to spur you on to the work set for you. Remove the veil! Come to Jesus. This is our hope. It is good news. “For it is the God who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness’, who has shone in…

Feb. 7, 2021 Live Worship Service

Today’s scripture: Isaiah 40: 28-31 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Printable Worship Outline

Jan. 31, 2021 – Watch What You Eat!

Today’s scripture: I Corinthians 8:1-6 A recent poll taken in an American suburb asked what were the principle problems confronting our world. Guess what they found. No show of hands were needed, and it’s not what you would think. Dogs running loose in the neighborhood was number one, number two, how to lose weight. The church is a family! We care about each other’s welfare and feelings. We’re not just a club or social organization. We’re family! Christians are people…

Jan 24, 2021 – Live Worship Service

Today’s scripture: Mark 1:14-20 A willingness to abandon comfort and familiarity can have a powerful and positive impact. Disciples follow Jesus best when they leave the workplace, the comfortable, and the familiar. We need good “walking shoes.” Missionary Jackie Pullinger noted, “God wants us to have soft hearts and hard feet. The trouble with so many of us is that we have hard hearts and soft feet.” As Christians – followers of Jesus, we are people of action, people who…

Jan. 17, 2021 – When Facing Adversity are you an Egg Carrot or a Coffee Bean?

Due to technical issues this service was divided into two seperate feeds. Lakeview United Methodist Women Sunday Today’s scripture: James 1:2-6 We would learn very little if everything in life fell into place without challenge or difficulty. In terms of faith, we would be spiritual weaklings. Just as athletes “test” their bodies over and over again in order to build endurance and, therefore, be able to perform at their best, our faith must be tested so we can become mature…

Jan. 10, 2021 – Vox Dei – “Voice of God”

Today’s scripture: Psalm 29 When God speaks, things happen. Psalm 29 reflects on the power of God’s words and reflect back to creation when God spoke the words of creation. Where have you heard God speaking to you? How has it changed you? Psalm 29 not only reflects on the power of God’s words, but it also helps us place ourselves in right perspective with God. We hear his voice and it causes us to drop in worship. We see…

Jan. 3, 2021 – The Party of Life

Today’s scripture: John 1:1-18 “You only live once.” We’ve all heard this phrase but is it true for a follower of Jesus? True, we only go through this world once, but as Christians, we are Easter People – we believe in the resurrection and a life after this short time here. Christmas is over, but now it’s time for Epiphany – the reveling of Jesus as Lord and Savior. This also marks that change from infant Jesus to his life…

Dec 27, 2020 Worship Service – Live Online

Today’s scripture: Isaiah 61:10 – 62:3 Christmas is over. Or is it? The birth of this baby was more than a miracle for it heralded a new reality for all humanity. The birth of Jesus set in motion the reality of God’s kingdom on earth and secured our salvation through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. For once, and for all-time, we could now embrace true freedom and “right-living” – righteousness. Protection from God’s wrath, from our own sin,…

Dec 24, 2020 Christmas Eve Service – The Great Reveal

Today’s scripture: Luke 2:1-14 The Old Testament leads us in a specific direction that God is headed. Today, we touch on some of the scriptures announcing the future arrival of a Messiah, one who would lead God’s people and bring salvation – freedom. The touching story of the nativity we have heard year after year, but it’s worth repeating again. This baby reveal is the greatest of all time, announced by angels but heralded by shepherds. Luke 1 announces that…
