Sunday Morning Sermon for 4/28/13

We have been seeing God at work in our midst at FBC Langdon and it is only fitting that we remember one of the main duties of a disciple of Jesus Christ.  We are called to be His witnesses and to tell our story.  You can listen to the audio by clicking on the sermon “Tell Your Story” in the playlist at the right or by following this link.  Notes are below (I have filled in the names in the areas that I mention were blank) or at the audio site as a PDF.  May you be richly blessed through the Word and may you share that blessing by telling your story about Him.

Sunday Morning Sermon for 4/1/12

We had a great time this week as we gathered to worship the King of Kings.  The sermon this week is a little different sort of take on the story of Palm Sunday.  We talked a lot about the donkey of the Messiah and about service to the King.  I pray that you will be blessed through God’s Word as we encounter Jesus our Savior lowly and riding on a donkey.

Sunday Morning 10/24/10

We had a wonderful time in the Lord this week.  My back pain cleared up enough to allow me to stand and preach the Word, which is an answered prayer and a blessing.  The message may sound a little muffled this week as it appears that the mic fell into my jacket at some point.  The audio is still understandable, so here it is.  Notes are below as well.  May God richly bless you through His Word.
