The Sunday morning church service is when the whole church gathers together to worship God by singing to Him, giving of the time, money, and skill He has graced us with, and receiving a message delivered by a man who senses God's call to preach and teach the message of the Bible.

We record the audio of the sermons during each service and post it over on SoundCloud. This web page provides links to the sermon audio as well as to correlating materials you can use for further research and for group study in your small group.

The Power of the Spoken Word: Reviving Dry Bones

Sunday, September 18, 2016

The book of Ezekiel was written by the prophet bearing the same name, which means "God will strengthen." A Hebrew from the tribe of Levi, he was among the elite of Judah who were captured by Nebuchadnezzar and carried away to Babylon.

The Power of the Spoken Word

Sunday, September 11, 2016

“Sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never harm me.”

Despite what this phrase may suggest, modern studies show that verbal abuse can actually have long-lasting psychological effects, which may sometimes manifest in physical ways. Wounding words do not necessarily have to come exclusively from bullies. They can also come from friends, family members and loved ones, according to Psychology Today. Just like there is no single defining type of verbal abuse, there is no single defining stereotype of a verbal abuser.

What We Can Learn from a Fired Manager

Sunday, September 4, 2016

Pastor Michael is out on a well-deserved vacation this week, so one of our elders, Andy Sharples, will be preaching. The title of his sermon is What We Can Learn from a Fired Manager. Andy is sharing the story Jesus told of the comeback of the dishonest manager found in Luke 16:1-9. This story teaches us that, while love is the hallmark of true Christianity, one thing Christians need is to be more ______. Join us for a fascinating and helpful look at a passage that's often misunderstood. (Know what goes in the blank? Get the discussion started: tweet it, and be sure to @southbcpeople!)

What are you aiming for?

Sunday, August 21, 2016

This Sunday we will be discussing in detail the importance of vision. Many of us feel like we have a handle on vision, but sometimes we lack understanding in aspects of our life that should have vision. Our lives are riddled with lack of vision. If you are feeling like a failure, or feeling lost and confused, I want to encourage you to take care. I am firmly convinced that no matter where you are or what you have done, if you surrender to the visions that God has purposed for you, you will succeed.

“Lord, it is because of you I can and will…” Part II

Sunday, August 7, 2016

After last week's sermon, several people shared a particular part that spoke to them, stating “This is where I am” or “This is me”. This week we work through the second half of the message. It is my prayer that as much as we all may have identified with the pain and suffering described in the first half, we will see ourselves walking and proclaiming the hope and victory of the second half by understanding the four keys for leaving the camp of despair.

Lord, it is because of you I can and will…

Sunday, July 31, 2016

In today’s world, our personal battles against sickness, broken relationships, sin and temptation seem endless. The church is in battle against the world’s sinful, increasingly anti-Christian ideology and the woes of this very complicated, lost world. These things can cause us as believers to despair. Maybe we think the best way to handle these issues as if these things don’t exist. However, we walk in the constant hidden fear that one day that denial will catch up with us.

Before we stand and speak...

(A better title for this week's message would be: "Have Faith in God".)

It Can't Be That Simple

Sunday, July 17, 2016

How is it that the Gospel message can seem so simple but living the Christian life can seem so complicated?  This Sunday we will revisit Jesus' late night encounter with Nicodemus and let Him explain it all to us.

We Must Be Intentional

Sunday, July 10, 2016

But He needed to go through Samaria (John 4:4)

As your pastor it is my responsibility to shepherd us into true discipleship. True discipleship always intentionally seeks to bring light into dark situations.
