Jumping around James


  • May 2, 2021 - The Fruit of Faith in Jesus

    Scripture - James 2:14-26

    Message - The Fruit of Faith in Jesus


    Today’s Topic:

    Today we are beginning a series of messages on the book of James and we will wrestle with the relationship between our faith in or beliefs about God and our actions and behaviors (or the way our faith is expressed). Take a moment to reflect on these words by C. H. Spurgeon, “Faith that does not change your behavior will never change your destiny.”



  • May 9, 2021 - The Law of the Land is Love

    Scripture - James 2:1-13

    Message - The Law of the Land is Love.


    Today’s Topic:

    We are jumping around in our study of James. Today we hear the instruction not to show favoritism within the Christian Community. As Christ followers, we sometimes fail to show the love of God to each other. So please, hear this: “You are known and valued and loved by God. Don’t let anyone tell you different; don’t forget it.”

    Scripture - James 3:13 - 4:12

    Message - Wisdom From Above


    Today’s Topic:

    We are jumping around in our study of James. Today we hear that there is earthly “wisdom” (which isn’t wisdom at all) and wisdom that comes from God. We also will be recognizing our graduating seniors today and praying God’s wisdom upon them in the years ahead. What about you, “Do you recall any good (or poor) words of wisdom given to you over the years?”

    Scripture - James 3:1-12

    Message - Taming the Tongue



    Today’s Topic:

       We are jumping around in our study of James and today we are reminded of the power of words to either build up or tear down. When was the last time someone either hurt or encouraged you by what they said? Consider the lasting effects that those words had on you. If you could say one thing to God right now, what would it be? Take a moment now to speak that word to God in prayer.

    Message - Patient Prayer



    Today’s Topic:

    Today we will celebrate the sacrament of baptism as Mayeva and Tyler Neuendorf are baptized, and we will explore the words of James that teach us to be patient and pray in all circumstances. Have you had any trying circumstances this past week that have tested your patience or your ability to endure? Take a minute now to talk to God about it in prayer - thanking the Lord for his great patience with each of us.


  • June 6, 2021


    Scripture - James 1:2-4, 12-25

    Message - Where Does Temptation Come From?


    Today's Topic: 

    We’ve been jumping around in our study of James and today we conclude with the first chapter that examines how our faith is shaped by the trials and temptations we face. And we will celebrate God’s grace in our lives as we share the Lord’s supper together. 

  • April 25, 2021

    Scripture:  Acts 9:1-31


    Today’s Topic:

    Today we read of Jesus’ appearance to Saul and his conversion to Christianity. It was a dramatic turning point for his life as well as for the early church. Consider what the major moments of your faith have been. How did you see Jesus in the midst of those moments? Prepare your heart to worship the living Christ again today.


  • April 18, 2021 - Your Post-Credits Scene

    Scripture - John 20:30-31; 21:15-25

    Message - Your Post-Credits Scene


    Today’s Topic:

    Today we read of Jesus’ third appearance to his disciples as he eats breakfast with them. Many of the significant stories of Jesus’ encounters with his followers is over a meal. When was the last special meal you shared with family or friends? What made it special?



  • April 11, 2021 - No Doubt About It

    Scripture - Luke 24:36-49

    Message - No Doubt About It



    Today’s Topic:

    Today we read of Jesus’ appearance to his disciples and their struggle to believe “because of joy and amazement.” (Luke 24:41). It seems their struggle to believe is because it’s too good to be true. Have you ever had something seem too good to be true? Share the memory with someone today.
