  Date: Sunday, October 02, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 47 mins 31 secs    
  Description: Back in Bethlehem, Ruth takes the initiative to go out and glean during the barley harvest. Her concern that she find a field where the owner and workers will be favorable to her is more than met when, seemingly by chance, she ends up gleaning in the field of Boaz. As we'll see, not only does Boaz let her glean freely in his fields, but he provides water and protection for her. And there is more. Our author has told us that Boaz is a kinsman of Ruth's former father-in-law, Elimelech. Ruth is working in just the place where she might have hoped to find the greatest sympathy had she known where to find it. We have to break off before this part of the story ends, but we do learn a thing or two about being a follower of God from Ruth's experience, and we learn something about the love of God from how Boaz treats Ruth.

  Description: Left in Moab without her husband and two sons, Naomi decides to return to Bethlehem. Initially her two daughters-in-law accompany her, but upon her urging one turns back. The other, Ruth, not only insists on going with her mother-in-law, but declares that Naomi's God is now her God and that Naomi's people will be her people. The two arrive in Bethlehem, where Naomi freely expresses her bitterness toward God. Never-the-less our author hints that there is still more to come in Naomi's life.
  Date: Sunday, September 18, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 44 mins 12 secs    
  Description: In this first message in our new series on the Book of Ruth we discover that an obscure Jewish family who lived in Bethlehem experienced the consequences of the sin of their nation and sought refuge in a foreign land. We'll see that not all worked out as the family hoped. Tragedy found the family, even though they were far from home. As we'll learn, this tragedy was not the final chapter in the history of Naomi, the only survivor and mother of this family. There are some enduring lessons for us, too, in this family's tragedies.
  Date: Sunday, September 11, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 33 mins 55 secs    
  Description: Being reconciled to someone we love after a break-up can be one of the most comforting events of our life. While we may not have thought about needing to be reconciled to God, the truth is, we do. The good news is that because of what Jesus Christ has done, we can be reconciled to God and can begin to enjoy a close, personal relationship with God as our Father. That's what the apostle Paul discovered, and the message he shares in the passages we'll explore in this message.
  Date: Sunday, September 04, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 36 mins 14 secs    
Passage: John 4:1-30 & John 4:39-42    
  Description: Jesus spoke with a woman who suffered from the most common spiritual problem in the world. She suffered from a case of second-hand religion. We'll see they symptoms of this common malady, and be introduced to the cure. Once you understand the problem, you'll probably agree that people around the world suffer from this affliction. Jesus offers something far better, something we can experience first-hand.
  Date: Sunday, August 28, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 44 mins 17 secs    
Passage: John 3:1-21    
  Description: The phrase is now a familiar part of our language, but many don't know the original spiritual significance of the words born again. The person who introduced the American public to this term used it the way Jesus first intended, to explain the radical spiritual transformation he went through when he came to Christ. Jesus first used this term when talking to a good, decent, religious man. What he told this man about being born again is something each of us needs to hear. Jesus said that you and I need to be born again if we are ever going to be part of God's eternal kingdom. Here's how.
  Date: Sunday, August 21, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 33 mins 11 secs    
Passage: Ephesians 2:1-9    
  Description: In spite of what many people believe, they cannot be 'spiritual' if they are unsaved. This is because of a basic truth about all of us that Paul reminds the Ephesian Christians of. This truth, and the way to genuine spiritual life, is laid out fully and simply in the well-known Bible passage we explore in this message.
  Date: Sunday, August 14, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 31 mins    
Passage: Hebrews 9:27-28    
  Description: Death and taxes are supposed to be the only certain things in the world. The Bible warns us of the inescapable truth of death. It also warns us of a second inescapable truth everyone must know about and confront. (It isn't taxes.). That's the focus of the passage we'll cover in this message.
  Date: Sunday, August 07, 2016       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 33 mins 3 secs    
Passage: Romans 5:6-8    
  Description: The message of the church for over 2,000 years has been "Christ died for us", but it appears that millions of people who consider themselves Christians do not understand why that truth is personally important to them. Paul reveals how the death of Christ is personally important to each of us in a short but clear statement in the book of Romans. Perhaps you will come to understand the meaning of "Christ died for us" to you personally as you listen.
  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.
