Sunday Morning Sermon for 9/11/11

I am slowly getting caught up with posting the messages.  We had an AWANA organizational meeting last night where it hit me that I hadn’t yet returned to this task this week.  The message from the next Sunday will be coming out before the end of the day I hope.  This message continues the theme of the stages of discipleship/growth.  The text comes primarily from Luke 9-10.  There are no notes with this sermon.  May God richly bless you through His Word.

Sunday Morning Sermon for 9/4/11

I got a little behind on updating the website for the month.  I will play catch up this week and will plan to get the sermons posted from all three Sundays by the middle of the week (9/21).  We have been working through the stages of discipleship and I have enjoyed walking through the journey and what that process looks like with our congregation here.  It is my prayer that God would speak to you who listen online through these messages as well.  I encourage you to be involved in a local assembly of believers who can walk with you on this path of discipleship as well.  There are notes available for this sermon, but the next two do not have typed out notes, so I won’t post any outlines for them online

May God richly bless you through His Word.
