  Date: Sunday, July 31, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 36 mins 15 secs    
Passage: John 1:11-13    
  Description: We may think that the idea that everyone is God's child must be right. So many people repeat it, it must be so. But is it? And what difference could it make if the statement is wrong anyway? Why bring it up? I bring it up because if it is wrong and anyone is basing their confidence in their future on being God's child, that person needs to be sure he or she is actually God's child. But how can he/she know? Certainly not based on my opinions. In this message we'll discover that the Bible gives a clear answer to our question and explains how to become a child of God. Hopefully you will gain some clarity about what is actually an important issue before we are done.

Passage: Romans 3:9-31    
  Description: Did Jesus come just to set a good example, tell us some good things about God, start a new religion, teach us new morals, or was there another reason? In a well-known passage in Romans Paul gives us the answer. To do so he has to first tell us something some of us don't want to hear, but there is no good news in Christianity until we hear this. Follow along as we learn four facts every person in this world needs to know as we discover the answer to the question, "Why Jesus?"
  Date: Sunday, July 10, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 45 mins 56 secs    
  Description: It is no secret that America as a nation seems angrier than ever. The problems this has created are in the news all the time. The truth is that anger by itself accomplishes nothing. It is how we respond when we feel angry that makes the difference. Our response can be either destructive or constructive. Too much of the anger response we are seeing in America today is destructive. The Bible counsels us to be slow to anger and to be angry but sin not. That seems to be asking a lot. Yet this is something we can learn to do. We'll take counsel from God's Word and see how by applying wisdom and relying on the Holy Spirit we can become people who use anger in a positive way rather than a harmful one.
  Date: Sunday, July 03, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 40 mins 56 secs    
Passage: Psalms 94 & Psalms 33    
  Description: As we look upon the dramatic changes that have taken place in our nation over the past 40 years, and we see that the efforts we've made through political action, petition, court cases, and combined influence have done little good, concerned Christians in America may well ask, "What are we to do?" Knowing God as they do, they may also wonder, "How long, O God, will you continue to allow evil to prosper?" Contemplating this issue leads us to two Psalms that speak to our concerns. One I call The Psalm of the Perplexed Believer, and the second I call The Psalm of the Confident Believer. In these two Psalms American Christians may find at least a part of the answer to their question, "In these times, what am I to do?"
  Date: Sunday, June 26, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 28 mins 20 secs    
Passage: Matthew 7:13-14    
  Description: With just a few words Jesus taught the most important spiritual truth in the world. If you want to be on the right road that gets to the place you eventually want to be, you have to listen to and act on what Jesus said. It is that simple.
  Date: Sunday, June 19, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 44 mins 41 secs    
  Description: Paul concludes his letter to the Corinthians with notes about his plans, his people, his circumstances, and with a few commands. We'll focus on Paul's decision to stay in Ephesus even though he had a number of good reasons to leave for Corinth or another place. We'll discover what enabled him to stay where he should be rather than head for greener pastures, and through that learn a lot about what it takes to be a man in our time.
  Date: Sunday, June 12, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 44 mins 12 secs    
  Description: As he begins to close his letter to the Corinthians, Paul turns to some brief instructions and information about his plans. He begins with instruction about a special collection he has encouraged them to participate in. In other places Paul identifies this collection as an offering of the churches for the poor believers in Jerusalem. Paul gives four specific instructions about how they are to give this offering, and then shares how the offering will be handled so as to reassure the donors that their gifts are secure. Here we''l find universal principles of giving that apply to a Christian's offerings today, and two practices that churches should implement that will reassure donors that their gifts are being properly accounted for and used as desired.
  Date: Sunday, June 05, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 42 mins 52 secs    
  Description: Ever wonder what your resurrection body will be like? Apparently some in the church in Corinth did. In fact some of them seemed to have a serious misunderstanding about what their resurrection body would be like. As Paul wraps up his long discourse on the resurrection he takes up this question, first explaining the nature of our resurrection body, and then exulting in the triumph over death and sin that our resurrection body represents. It's a thrilling preview of the ultimate destiny of every born-again believer in Christ.
  Date: Sunday, May 29, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 47 mins 32 secs    
  Description: Paul concludes his treatment of the critical importance of the resurrection by pointing out some behaviors of the Corinthians and his that are totally inconsistent with a belief that there is no resurrection. Because there is a resurrection, these behaviors make sense, and other behaviors are called for. Beliefs should effect our lifestyle and belief in the resurrection has clear implications for how we live.
  Date: Sunday, May 22, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 32 mins 38 secs    
  Description: Having reminded the Corinthian Christians about their personal stake in the fact of the resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:1-19), Paul now turns to explain another important aspect of Christ's resurrection. Jesus' resurrection assures the Corinthians they will rise also, but it also assures them that God will be victorious over every person, being, and thing that now opposes him. Jesus' resurrection is the beginning of the end. It guarantees that end will be reached: that all things will be brought back into submission to God the Father and he will be all in all.
