“Lessons from 3 Fathers”
June 25, 2017 by Rev. Lynn Taylor
This week we look at “Lessons from 3 Fathers” in the Bible. We take a look at Eli who teaches about Discipline; Samuel who teaches about Presence and David who teaches about Morality. Dads make a difference because of three gifts – timely discipline, intentionally invested time and teaching right from wrong.

“Built for a Purpose” 
June 18, 2017 by Karen Allen, Associate Minister
This week we enjoyed the worship music from our Vacation Bible School children and then explored the lessons they learned throughout the week of how God created them, loves them, never leaves them and built them for a purpose. We explored how God designed each of them to be a part of his master plan and counts each person as special and is continuing to shape and mold them so that others may know Christ in a meaningful way.

“Do it again Lord”
June 11, 2017 by Rev. Lynn Taylor
Based on scripture from Mark 10:17-22. This week we celebrate Pentecost and look at the gifts of Presence, Power, and a New Personality. We have a Promise and a Blessing that “I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow My decrees.” We also have the promise that “I will pour out My Spirit on your descendants, and My blessing on your children.” The gift of the Holy Spirit is one that remains and we celebrate it as we learn more about it on this blessed day.

“Memorial Day” Generations – Building Bridges
May 28, 2017 by Rev. Lynn Taylor
This week’s “Home Improvement” series takes a look at Memorial Day and what we can learn from the different generations. We look at how the elderly can be honored and what we can learn from them. Also, we look at how to have successful handoffs between generations. From this, we take the scripture: “We will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about His power and His mighty wonders – so that a people not yet born will praise the Lord.” 
Critical Choices Facing Today’s Young Adults
May 21, 2017 by Rev. Lynn Taylor
Based on scriptures from Galatians 6:4, Ephesians 2:10 and 5:15-18a. This week Rev. Taylor spends some time speaking to our graduates but uses words that speak to all of us. We take a look at how we should live. How we should be careful what we search for in life, especially in our identity and determining who we want to become and who we are. Likewise we need to be mindful of what we accept and allow and be aware of protecting the name of Christ in what you do and say. 
 
“Home Improvement – Week 3”
May 14, 2017 by Rev. Lynn Taylor
Based on scriptures from Pslam 112:1-9 and Proverbs 31:30-31, this sermon is a Mother’s Day look at “Strengthening the Family.”
Lynn looks at three mother’s from the Bible:
• Jochebed and how she defined motherhood by her courage and conviction.
• Rizpah and how she was characterized by things beyond her control but still remained in control of the one thing that she could do something about.
• Eunice and how she handled having a husband who didn’t share her faith.
“Home Improvement – Week #2”
May 7 2017 by Rev. Lynn Taylor
Based on scripture from Proverbs 17:6, Ephesians 6:1-4 and Proverbs 22:6. This week we take a look at the role of parenting! Parenting involves SHAPING lives for eternity. It also means that we must “be very careful how we live, not as unwise but as wise.” Through many different situations we can be challenged in how we “train” children – how we instruct, discipline and share knowledge.
“Home Improvement – Week No 1”
April 30, 2017 by Rev. Lynn Taylor
This week we begin a series titled “Home Improvement – Strengthening Family Life.” It is easy to be reminded that “life can be messy.” 
It takes “wisdom,” “understanding,” and “knowledge” to build a home. 
• Wisdom – to see things with discernment
• Understanding – a full awareness of situations
• Knowledge – a willingness to learn with perception.
“What do We Say to God”
April 23, 2017 by Rev. Lynn Taylor
This week’s sermon takes us to Luke 11:1, and Matthew 6:5-8. It’s a familiar passage about the Lord’s Prayer but a closer look at what we are actually saying when we utter those words that begin with affection, adoration and expectation. How do we approach God and what can we learn about coming for “Our Father” in prayer. Learn more about how God wants you to just talk to him honestly, with humility, and to know that He offers guidance and safety. “Be Still and Know that God is God!”
