Sunday Morning Services

Feb 4 - "Faith Without Works Is Dead" - James 2: 14 - 26.  Key Verse:  In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by actiion, is dead. - James 2: 17.  Central Thought:  Works will not save us.  After we walk through the doorway of both in Christ,  then works are the evidence of commitment to God and his ways.  The difference is in the purpose; we can never be saved by good works, but we cannot be saved without them.

Feb 11 - "A Disciplined Faith" - James: 3: 1 - 12.  Key Verse:  But no human being can tame the tongue.  It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. - James 3: 8.  Central Thought:  "Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God.  God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few."  (Ecclesiates 5:2).  We will never regret harsh or hurtful words if they are never spoken.

Feb 18 - "Faithful Disciples" -  Acts 9: 36 - 43.  Key Verse:  Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed.  Turning toward the dead woman, he said, "Tabitha, get up."  She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up. - Acts 9:40.  Central Thought:  Dorcas's legacy was more than clothing.  When she died, her legacy was grateful people who had been objects of her kindness and for whom she had modeled the love of Christ.  What sort of legacy will you leave?

Feb 25 - "The Good Fight of Faith" - 1 Timothy 6: 11 - 21.  Key Verse:  Fight the good fight of the faith.  Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. - 1 Timothy 6: 12.  Central Thought:  As leaders of the church, we must be careful with the money with which we are  entrusted and thankful to God for his provision.  When we do this, we are fighting the good fight with a winning strategy.
