SUNDAY AT 10 AM BIBLE STUDY HOUR Pastor Brooks Goodhart - It is NOT meeting; more information as to when it will start in the future.
SUNDAY AT 11 AM MORNING WORSHIP Pastor Brooks Goodhart- “John's Vision of the Son of Man” – Revelation 1:12-20 Sermon Notes: In John's vision of the Son of Man, the revelation of Jesus Christ, he pictures Jesus Christ in the following way: He is righteous (always does what is right); faithful (Jesus never fails); all powerful, wise, omniscient (He sees all and knows all); pure and holy (He will judge everyone and everything, and He speaks w/authority). That sums up what the vision portrays Jesus Christ to be. John had not seen or heard Jesus for over 60 years since He ascended into heaven. We get english word apocalypse from the word “revelation.” It means to uncover, reveal, make known. Jesus Christ is revealed as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. This book tells more about satan and his final defeat than any other book. No wonder satan doesn't want us to read it! The FOCUS of Revelation: on Jesus Christ and His glorious victory over all His enemies. John was exiled to the island of Patmos by the Roman emperor Domitian, forced to work hard in the mines and quarries. He was a prisoner for his faith, and while on Patmos, John had the vision that resulted in him writing this Book. It is a book of hope, comfort, and victory: “I've read the back of the Book, and we win!” John reminds his readers that God would keep them in times of suffering. They were going thru intense persecution, and needed encouragement and peace. This Book gives comfort and hope. Instead of focusing on the symbols and what we do not understand, we should focus on the throne because He is in charge; God is still on the throne!

“How in the World Are You?” - 1 Peter 3:13-15 Sermon Notes: This passage speaks to all Christians who live godly lives in the midst of a hostile ungodly world. Peter gives 4 ways to live in an unfair world: Consider yourself uniquely blessed by God; Don't panic and don't worry; AcknowledgeChrist as Lord even when treated unfairly; Be ready to give a witness.
One of God’s strongest witnesses in the history of Christianity has been the voices and actions of the persecuted. This has melted the hearts of many that hated Christ. So, Peter says to always be ready to give a defense of your faith; believers need to be prepared to defend their faith.
During China’s Boxer Rebellion of 1900, insurgents captured a mission station, blocked all the gates but one, and in front of that one gate placed a cross flat on the ground. Then the word was passed to those inside that any who trampled on the cross would be allowed to go free, but any refusing would be shot. Terribly frightened, the first 7 students trampled on the cross and set free. But the 8th student, a young girl, refused to commit the sacrilegious act. Kneeling beside the cross in prayer for strength, she arose and moved carefully around the cross, and went out to face the firing squad. Strengthened by her example, the last ninety-two students followed her to the firing squad.
In 1858 a man laid a trembling hand on the shoulder of a young shoe clerk and said, I’m concerned about you." That afternoon, that young man knelt in the basement of a shoe store and asked Jesus into his life. He was touched by this man’s concern. The young clerk was D.L. Moody.
When F.B.Meyer preached on a college campus in America a student, J. Wilber Chapman, heard him and accepted Christ. Chapman went into Y.M.C.A. work; he needed a helper, so he hired a young convert named Billy Sunday. Sunday began to do the work of an evangelist; on one occasion, he preached in Charlotte, NC. A group of local businessmen heard him preach on the power of prayer; they began to meet regularly for prayer. Some months later, Mordecai Ham accepted their invitation to come to Charlotte to preach. During 1 of the tent meetings a young man felt that the evangelist was pointing his sermons directly at him. The next night, he joined the choir so that he might be seated behind him. That night, the evangelist turned around and preached to the choir. During the invitation, the young man prayed to receive Christ. His name? Billy Graham; the story goes on...where did it all begin? With a man who cared enough to share the story of Jesus, so that a young man might have his life turned into a brand new story!
