He is also the Director of Regional Ministries nationally.    He and his wife, Karlotta, have two grown children and one granddaughter.    Terry’s message is on Mark 10:46-52. A poor blind beggar, known to the locals as Son of Timaeus sets out for a good day of begging. It is Passover season and he expects this will be the best day of begging he has ever had.  Throngs of people will be passing through Jericho on their way to Jerusalem.     He secures a spot on the roadway leading out of town.  He waits with anticipation.  Little did he know of the transformed life he would experience.     Completely through faith, not only physical healing but salvation would be his today.  Are you in need of such an experience?

    “I am the Light of the World”
    Series: (All)
       During this morning’s Children’s Day Service, we will be honoring our children, youth, and Christian Education volunteers. The sermon will be on the Children’s Ministry theme verse for the year, John 8:12, where Jesus proclaims, “I am the light of the world…”    We will look at the historical context of Jesus’ words which was during the annual Jewish Feast of the Tabernacles as well as what His words mean for us today.    During this feast, four 75 feet high candelabras were in lit in the outer temple. These fires commemorated the fact that God manifested Himself as a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night to protect and guide the Israelites during their 40 year wilderness journey in the desert. But this Feast was also meant to encourage God’s people to look forward to the promised coming of the Messiah.

    “Christianity and Women”
    Series: (All)
       Many Mother’s Day sermons speak of the worth and value of mothers. Instead of focusing on mothers in particular today, we will be focusing on the value of women in general.    Some feminists argue that God, as he is portrayed in the Bible, and Christianity are extremely oppressive to women. They believe that Paul disrespects women and teaches that they are second-class citizens in his New Testament letters. They see him as a misogynist, “a person who dislikes, despises, or is strongly prejudiced against women.”    Just the opposite is true. The reality is that Christianity is the best thing that has ever happened to women. We will look specifically at how the cultures of that day viewed women, some examples of how Jesus related to them, and some of Paul’s writings.

    “Benefits of Being a New Creation”
    Series: (All)
      We welcome you on this Easter Sunday! On Good Friday evening after Jesus was crucified and buried, His disciples met together locking themselves behind closed doors for fear that the Pharisees were going to try to round them up and have them killed as well. It was meeting the resurrected Christ and it was receiving the indwelling Holy Spirit that night that changed the lives of the disciples; that made them new creations.    This morning we will be focusing on Romans 5:1-11 as we look at how God has created us to be a new creation in relationship with Him and how life takes on a whole new meaning and purpose as we experience the benefits and blessings of that new creation relationship.

    “Behold, the Lamb of God”
    Series: (All)
       A Lenten Season reflection on the person of Jesus Christ and the theme of His sacrifice. For this purpose He was born! For this He prepared His disciples! And for this He will be celebrated for all eternity!    All of Scripture points to the cross and the perfect solution to the problem of sin in the world. Jesus is the perfect sacrifice, and still offers salvation to all who will receive. In this season, as we move towards the celebration of His victory over the grave, we want to know the Lamb of God!

    “Expectations of Worship”
    Series: (All)
       This morning we will be addressing a few expectations we should have as we gather as God’s people to worship Him. What do you expect to happen when you gather here to worship God through song or when you worship God privately? How would you end the statement, “When I worship God, I expect...”         If you are a regular attendee here, some of those expectations are found in what we pray together every Sunday as part of our Invitation to Worship: “God, I have come today to lift my heart and voice to bless you, to meet with you and to be blessed by you. Thank you for being here to meet with me.”    We will look at the Biblical support for the expectations in these two statements that the Lord desires for every follower of Christ to have as we worship God through song.
