  • Lessons to Remember – Sermon from 9/11/2016


    9-11CrossPlain-web

    15 years ago, our nation was attacked at the World Trade Centers, the Pentagon and over the skies of Pennsylvania. Most of us can remember where we were when we heard about these events and the videos and images from that day bring back many thoughts and feelings. As our pain heals and memorials are visited at all three locations, we also can’t forget the lessons learned from that day and the days that followed. Join us as we look back at the lessons learned from September 11 and how we can keep those lessons shaping our faith, our lives and the life of our families and community.

  • Work – Labor Day Sunday | Sermon from 9/4/2016


    Work Graphic copy-web

    Labor Day is an interesting holiday. We don’t sing Labor Day songs. We don’t send Labor Day cards. We don’t order Labor Day cakes and when was the last time someone wished you a Happy Labor Day (or is that a Merry Labor Day)? While it is a day for us to honor work, we do that by giving many people the day off. It all seems kind of strange… as does our understanding of work in general. Look at what God has to say about work and how we can transform our attitude about work even if we can’t transform the places where we do work.

    The first day of school, the first day of college, the first day on a new job, the first day of retirement… life is full of first days and with them comes uncertainty and anxiety. Through all our “first days”, God is there and by looking at the “first days” during Jesus life we see that God is there with a plan and with power. Read and listen to get ready for your “first day.

  • The Games – The Thrill of Victory & The Agony of Defeat | Sermon from 8/21/2016

    During the Olympic Games, we have seen the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. In our life, and in our own race of faith, we also experience moments of defeat. Whether it is in our jobs, families or finances – failure is there and we can either allow these moments to define us or we can use them as fuel for a victory. Because of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we can experience the thrill of victory if we will not give in to the agony of defeat. Celebrate this victory and press on in the race of faith.

  • The Games – Perseverance | Sermon from August 14, 2016

    What is it that has allowed Michael Phelps to swim in his fifth Olympics and win his 23rd gold medal and Yusra Mardini to swim in her first Olympics coming in 45th overall? Perseverance. Every athlete has to endure illness, injury, depression, disappointments and setbacks. Every athlete has to learn to persevere through the difficult days in order to compete in the games. Perseverance is needed in every race, including our race of faith. Learn what can help us endure and even breakthrough the problems and pain of life so that we can achieve our goal and win the prize of Christ.

  • The Games – Teamwork | Sermon from 8/7/2016


    Laurel Wreath hand held by a bronze statue

    Let The Games Begin! The Olympic Games are going on right now. After years of training we see athletes competing at the top of their game. No athlete arrives in Rio alone. They are all part of a team. They are part of a national Olympic team with other athletes in other sports, but each athlete also has their own team of family, friends, trainers, coaches and others who have helped them along the way. In the race of faith we all need a team. We need to ask ourselves two important questions: Who is on your team? & Whose team are you on?

    Laurel Wreath hand held by a bronze statue

    The Olympic Games start next Friday and all the athletes heading to Rio have spent years training for this moment. They have visualized winning the gold, they have set goals that have helped them move from one level to the next and they have worked hard to get to the very top of their game. Training is also part of our race of faith. Like Olympic athletes, we need to fix our eyes on the prize, set goals and work hard so that our faith will grow strong. Discover the three training goals that can help us run with faith the race that is set before us.

    The 2016 Summer Olympics begins in 2 weeks! 10,500 athletes from 206 nations will gather in Rio de Janeiro to compete in 306 events across 28 sports. It is an event that inspires people around the globe as we watch individuals and teams “go for the gold.” From the very beginning of the Christian Church, our faith has been compared to these games so during this year’s Olympics we will explore what it will take for us to run the race of faith.

  • Cave Stories – David | Sermon from 7/10/2016


    Cave Stories - David-web

    For the next two weeks, Faith Church will be turned into a cave to celebrate our Cave Quest Bible School. Since the children will be learning about God in a cave I thought it would be interesting to go back in history to see what lessons God taught people in caves. In a time of despair, David but his trust in God and in a cave was able to rejoice. From David’s cave story we learn how to trust God at all times and in all places. Take refuge and rejoice in a cave.
