    Most of you guys know I cut my hand a few months ago. I was using a kitchen knife in a way that a kitchen knife wasn't designed to be used, and I nicked the base of my pinky. I went to Urgent Care, thinking I would just need a couple of stitches to stop the bleeding, and then I would be on my ...read more

    In this sermon, we are going to look at sexual sin, specifically homosexuality. But in Romans 1, this isn't the first sin, the last sin, or the worst sin on the list.

    Does God Give Up On People? Romans 1:24-32 Good morning. Please open your Bibles to Romans 1. We’ve been in a passage of the New Testament that is difficult for a lot of people to process.

    After taking most of Romans 2 to explain that there is no distinction between Jew and Gentile, Paul throws a curve in Romans 3:1. Turns out, there is an advantage to being a Jew after all.

    Good morning! Please open your Bibles to Romans 3. I appreciate Lauren reading the Scripture passage for us earlier. You guys should be proud of Lauren.

    The Gospels tell us the "what" of Easter. Movies like "The Passion" tell us the "how." But in Romans 5, the Apostle Paul tells us the why.

    Happy Easter! He is Risen, He has risen indeed. If you have your Bibles, please turn to Romans 5. You might be a little surprised to be back in Romans, but a kind of weird thing happened.
