“You hear a lot of talk about prayer. Everybody kinda has this vague idea that, ‘Well, we’re supposed to pray,’ but there’s not really a lot of good teaching on prayer. What is it? What’s it mean? We’re going to look at that just a little bit today. But I want to tell you that prayer is a very important vital part of who we’re called to be.”
We have started doing free videos! We have no prior experience and are working with the most economical equipment we can at the moment. This has been a learning experience and you will find the first few weeks of video to be a bit rough, (a couple of them very rough) but praise be to God we are improving!

“Scripture tells us that there are going to be things that happen on this earth that men’s hearts are going to fail them for fear. Well, that doesn’t sound like the condition His body’s supposed to be in, does it? Actually, we’re not supposed to be in fear at all, because there’s no fear in God. It is the peace of God that we seem to lack when things start ramping up.”
Romans 14:17 (NIV)
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
A continuation of the discussion of the millenium. While the previous sermon got “a little heavy,” this message is one of hope.
1 Corinthians 15:51 (ESV)
Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:
“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”
1 Thessalonians 4:13–18 (ESV)
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord,[d] that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.
Pastor JoAnn tackles the difficult subject of tithing. This message isn’t intended as a cry for donations, but rather an attempt to help define the meaning and purpose of tithes, offerings, and alms.
“If [the enemy] can get among Christians and get them upset with one another—I think that’s about his favorite thing to do. He wants to divide and to cause problems with God’s people. And of course God desires the opposite: He wants us to come together and unite, and to love one another, and to care for one another like family. So we’re going to look a little bit today about what the Word has to say about that.”
