Sermons on Encouragement
We are too prone to engrave our trials in marble and write our blessings in sand. So write God’s blessings in marble so that you live in joyful worship of God every day.
God cares deeply about the pain of our suffering, and it shouldn’t happen in silence. The Bible gives us a channel to express the trials we experience.
We must encourage and exhort one another every day so that each person in our church family finishes life with a good, believing heart.

“We have to find our role in God’s big project, the one that stretches across the border from this life into the next.” (Cornelius Plantinga Jr.) In this message from Nehemiah 1, guest speaker John Waldrop teaches how revival came to God’s people through the obedience of Nehemiah, and the example it gives to the church today.
In this message from Esther 3, Pastor Josh Beakley teaches about the rise of evil, and shows how the glory of God is on display even through life’s darkest moments.
