Dialogue: Praying Together

Sermon Podcast Audio Your browser does not support the audio element. Introduction What comes to mind when you hear the words “Prayer Meeting”? If you’ve been around church for some time, I assume you are familiar with the concept. A prayer meeting is a time where Christians get together and they pray. There can be a lot of variations of this activity. They can be loud, boisterous times like my wife, Kerri and I experienced at a Pentecostal church in Tulsa, Oklahoma…

Dialogue: God (Still) Speaks

One-Sided Conversation Today I’ll be continuing our series called Dialogue: Recovering the Lost Art of Communicating with God.  Now to begin, I want to tell you a story about a recent conversation I had at Caribou Coffee earlier this week. I went to Caribou on Tuesday to start my day with time reading and praying.  I wanted to get a start on this message and just start my day off on the right foot.  I got my coffee, sat down…

The Big Story of God: The Savior

Introduction Have you ever been given a task to plan or a project to oversee only to have your best laid plans go horribly awry? In my previous life, when I was in banking, I had the job of overseeing bank operations. One of the tasks I was charged with was new projects. Back in 2005, our small community bank decided it was time to enter the 21st century and that we would pursue document imaging for all of our…

Spirit Led Evangelism

We are returning to a series we did in November.  If you can remember ALL THE WAY BACK to then, you might remember that we taught you about Evangelism.  We admitted it was a word most of us fear, but over the course of 4 weeks, we laid down a foundation for the importance of evangelism. First, we looked at the famous scripture from Romans 10 that says, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved”…
