God Gives the Growth 1 Corinthians 3:1–9 (ESV) 1 But I, brothers, could not address you as spiritual people, but as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ. 2 I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for it. And even now you are not yet ready, 3 for you are still of the flesh. For…
Just a closer walk with thee
Growth Seminar We all need to grow; needed in all areas, except maybe waistline. We need to grow in our Christian walk too ( Eph4:14-15 ; 1Pt2:2 ) 14 As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness…

Guest speaker, Pastor Orban Bellamy, speaks about the parable of the farmer scattering seed. He asks what type of soil are you and are you continually caring for the soil of your heart?
Neither Barren, Nor Unfruitful
The series of lessons called Neither Barren, Nor Unfruitful will look at things we should lay aside from 1 Peter 2:1-2, and things we should take on from 2 Peter 1:5-8, in order that we should be neither barren, nor unfruitful for our Master. This lesson looks at the idea of laying aside malice, and getting our mind right.

Introduction I want to start off with a question this morning, “How grown up are you?” Children are often times having a contest to see who is going to be the tallest. Being tall means being older to them or more grown up. Maybe you used to keep track of your kids height on a door frame with a pencil…

Text But You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil. And my eye has looked exultantly upon my foes, My ears hear of the evildoers who rise up against me. The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Planted in the…
Win The Day
Winning the day... Christian growth... is accomplished one day at a time, one step at a time... Sometimes those steps are easy, sometimes they are difficult... If we expect to grow, then we have to take those difficult steps. We have to "Eat the Frog!"

0. Introduction 1 “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. 2 See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. 3 Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your…
Win The Day
How you do ANYTHING is how you will do EVERYTHING! We claim to have faith... to be stepping out in faith... but.... How we do things reveals the truth! How we act when we face that mountain reveals where our faith is! -- Abraham had to step out of his home town... -- Peter had to step out of the boat... -- Cornelius had to step out across cultural divides! God promises to do powerful things in our lives... to help us "WIN THE DAY", but... We have to step out! We have to start the work! We have to "Fly The Kite!"

Comfort and Complacency are enemies of progress and growth. The idea that good enough is good enough is sure way to keep from moving forward. Midnight Star said it like this “Dont rock that boat baby.” And, I get it. I do. Somethings just are fine the way the are and some things work the way they are…
Staying in the Game

Introduction I had no idea that when the Lord led me to do this series, that I would experience loss in the way I did this week. Our Watauga High School women’s volleyball team made it to the third round of the state playoffs. They faced a very tough team and our team lost 3-1. The highs and lows of…
We need each other... I am reminded of a comment Gerald Frost quipped about community. “ The reason mountain climbers are tied together is to keep the sane ones from going home.” I don’t know who said it, or when, or where, but I’ve chuckled over it, thought about it, and quoted it, too. With a mountain…
An Exposition of Ephesians
Ephesians 4:11-16 gives us one of the clearest sustained articulations of the church’s mission and purposes in the whole New Testament. The passage articulates it a couple different ways, in v 13 and then again in v 16. The point of these verses is simple: We must aspire toward maturity as a church. How can we as a church grow in maturity? Paul gives several ways.
What is freedom? How have we misunderstood it? How might our American ideas of freedom stunt our Christian growth? Find out in episode two or our stunted series.
