I know none of us would do anything like this, but do know anyone who treats God like a vending machine? You know how that works – the person puts in their currency, good deeds or church attendance or some other religious activity, then pushes the button, prayer telling God what they want, then expecting…
God’s Charge to Isaiah “Cry out loudly, don’t hold back! Raise your voice like a trumpet. Tell My people their transgression and the house of Jacob their sins. Judah’s Confusion about Righteousness They seek Me day after day and delight to know My ways, like a nation that does what is right and does…
James has been writing about the contrast between the value systems of the world and the believer. He began by contrasting how wisdom differed between the world and godly wisdom. Last week, we examined the idea of whether God is considered within our plans or is He simply an afterthought Tonight, we…

God's Concerns Are Ours
Dr. David Palmer • United Methodist Church of Kent • Sermon • • 203 views • 55:31

The Signs of the Time
Minister Dwayne Mickens Jr. admonishes us to be mindful and not feed into "cancel culture", as it's just one of many signs of the End Times.
Kenneth Martinez • Sermon • • 373 views • 25:21
Jesus didn’t just come to preach and teach. He came to do. A lot of people know something about his sacrifice on the cross or his extensive teaching, but not many are aware that he was deeply interested in social justice. As a matter of fact, he defined his mission in terms of justice and healing for all!
The Corinthian Correspondence
Pastor Glenn • Grace United Family Church • Sermon • • 22 views • 49:05
The consummate cry of victory for the Christian is "life is hard, but God is good." It is told through the rough and tumble of our lives. No one is immune to pain and suffering in this life. And it is God's desire that his people declare his goodness through the good and bad times. If you are a follower of Christ, a Christian, what is your cry of victory? What is your victory story? Come with the Grace United crew as we hear Paul's victory story and reflect on our own and how to tell it better, for indeed, "life IS hard, but God IS good."
The Gospel According to Moses
Pastor Glenn • Grace United Family Church • Sermon • • 22 views • 37:50
The prophet Amos said to his wayward people back in the day, "Let justice roll down like water, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream." Justice is a huge deal today--in all of its forms: racial, social, economic, even reproductive justice. The national discussion and the ramifications in our culture take up many minutes on all things media. But is the justice promoted today the kind of thing the Lord would approve of? Certainly, justice is his idea. But has it gone too far? Is God pleased? Come with the Grace United crew as we discover what the Lord means and how he desires to apply justice, both in Moses' day and in ours.
Savoring the Psalter
We must continue to pray for our governments of today, but we ultimately look for the return of Christ to establish His perfect rule and reign.
Mercy & Justice

2 My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. 2 For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, 3 and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say,…

Rev. Dr. Larry T. Crudup • Sermon • • 6 views
INTRODUCTION: (NOW) “If the churches took half the money that they was making and gave it back to the community we’d be alright. If they’d take half the buildings that they used to praise God and gave it to people who need God, we’d be alright. We’d be alright. Have you seen some of these churches lately?…

Fasting in Minor Prophets
Dale A. Brueggemann • Sermon • • 5 views
Introduction Fasting and Missions Zechariah 7-8 is the nearest thing to an active missionary calling that we see in the Old Testament outside the book of Jonah—the embittered and reluctantly successful missionary. But the difference between Jonah and Zechariah are striking: Jonah : Proclaims judgment,…
