    The Word of the Year

    December 11, 2019 Pastor Steve Lambert
    At the end of every year, dictionary websites choose a word that they feel best represents the year that is ending.  They then name that word the word of the year. For 2019, chose the word ‘existential’.

    The Story of the Bible

    November 3, 2019 Pastor Steve Lambert

    Whenever you read a book, you have to take into consideration what kind of book it is.  You don’t read all kinds of books the same way. The kind of book you are reading determines how you read it.  So what kind of book is the Bible?

    Prophecies of Jesus

    September 1, 2019 Pastor Steve Lambert

    The writers of the New Testament point out over and over how Jesus fulfilled Old Testament prophecies in His birth, His life, His death, and His resurrection.  But if you have ever looked up the prophecies that Jesus fulfilled, you may have found yourself confused. Sometimes these prophecies aren’t prophecies in the way we expect...

    Entering the Psalms

    July 28, 2019 Pastor Steve Lambert
    The Psalms teach us how to come to God in prayer, but they can be very confusing for many Christians.  Many of the Psalms seem like complaining (these are called lament psalms). Others ask God to destroy our enemies (these are known as imprecatory psalms).  Surely God doesn’t want us to pray that way, does He?

    Prayers of Doubt

    July 15, 2019 Pastor Steve Lambert
    What does faith look like in the face of doubt and despair?  How do we pray when we aren’t sure that God is listening or that He cares?  Most of us don’t know how to answer those questions. We find them awkward and disturbing.  We like to think, or to pretend that Christians don’t ever feel that way. But those reactions to doubt and despair aren’t realistic, they aren’t helpful.  Thankfully, they aren’t biblical either!

    Has God's Word Failed? (Romans 9-11)

    January 2, 2019 Pastor Steve Lambert

    Romans chapter 8 makes some amazing and glorious promises to Christians.  These promises are truly incredible and joyous. But are they trustworthy?

    The Weary World Rejoices!

    December 5, 2018 Pastor Steve Lambert
    O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
    It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth.
    Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
    Till He appear'd and the soul felt its worth.
    A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices,
    For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
