6 – “Hated Without a Cause”

Words From The Upper Room Nobody LIKES to be hated! It is uncomfortable to say the least … and yet, Jesus told His disciples they WOULD be hated because of their relationship with Him. Jesus warned His disciples that they would face opposition at every turn for the sake of His name, and yet most who claim to be His disciples today…

4 – “Never An Orphan”

Words From The Upper Room Feeling alone, powerless and vulnerable is never a pleasant experience, but it is a common one for most people! One of the great blessings of being a disciple of Jesus is the fellowship within the Body of Christ.  God designed it that way. It is said that “no man is an island.” We all need each other.…

3 – “Believe ME!”

Words From The Upper Room When someone tells you to “believe” them, it often indicates that you may have some reason to doubt that what they are saying is true.

Stand Alone Sermon There is something about turning the calendar to a new year that makes it seem that almost anything is possible, which is why many people begin the year by making resolutions. The problem, however, with the resolutions most people make, is that they rely on merely human “will-power” to accomplish them, and so they eventually end up where Paul…

9 – “The Wedding”

4 – “LOVE … Is Found In Knowing God’s Love For YOU In Jesus Christ … and Loving Him Back!”

Advent Series While many people talk about “loving others,” few understand that true LOVE can be received and expressed only by those who know the love of GOD, our Creator, through His Son Jesus Christ.
