Pastor Phil Perry

Genesis 22

HIS Story
Abraham’s Sacrifice of Isaac

Resurrection Sunday reminds us of the terrible price paid for our salvation. Jesus death on our behalf was illustrated some 1900 years before that on the same hill He died on. God asked of Abraham a seemingly impossible offering—His son. Obedience to God will always cost us something…

Genesis 12-22

HIS Story
Father Abraham

Judaism, Islam and Christianity all claim Abraham as Father. Many in archeology and anthropology see him as a made up character from a desperate people who have been taken captive by the Babylonians (586 years before Christ) to sustain their unique culture. How does this man fit into God’s unfolding story?

Pastor Phil Perry

Genesis 9-11

HIS Story
The Tower of Babel

Where did the races and languages come from? The Bible gives us the answer to this and many other questions. The ancients had the same problem we do; they wanted to be the captain of their own fate. They rebelled against God and God had to stop them from destroying themselves. This story serves to tell us how mankind became so divided…

Genesis 6-9

HIS Story
The Great Flood

The story of Noah’s Ark is one familiar almost universally. To most it is an impossible myth based on some local lore. The story as presented in Genesis though is factual and teaches us quite a bit about God’s expectations for His creation and His provision for rescue…

Pastor Phil Perry

Genesis 3-6

HIS Story
A Covering, Banishment and Growing Rebellion

The spread of sin through creation was quick. In a series of short chapters, we discover how wicked man became and how sorrowful our Holy God became about it. God will move decisively to deal with sin. Are your ready for the moment you stand before Him?

Pastor Phil Perry

Genesis 3

HIS Story
The Fall of Man

The Serpent strikes and spreads his venom into God’s special creation. Through tricks and deception still in use today, he inflicts his grievous wounds that are still felt today. All parts of creation have been impacted by the fall; in a theological sense we say we are totally depraved. Not as bad as we can be, but completely ruined from our soul outward. We feel the effects of one decision from our original parents and along with all creation we long and groan for restoration.

Genesis 3

HIS Story
The Rise of Evil

Every great story has both a protagonist and an antagonist. We have seen God pictured as both narrator and ultimate protagonist in Genesis. He is the heart of the story, it is His story after all; but we now come to the introduction of the arch villain and rival to God—Satan. He is known in scripture by many names, but He is always seen as attempting to thwart God’s plans and his ultimate goal is to oppose not only God but those who belong to Him…

Pastor Phil Perry

Genesis 1-2

HIS Story
Mankind, in His Image

The creation of man is what we focus on usually, but even here, God is the focal point. We are created in His image. We find value and purpose only in Him. We were created not for our own benefit and purposes; but His. When He finished with us; He said it was very good. God makes no mistakes, including you!

Pastor Phil Perry

Genesis 1

HIS Story
God, the Creator

The beginning of Genesis records the beginning of what we know as home—Earth. It is an extremely complicated machine that God made and is so advanced that mankind in his best imitation (Biosphere 2) was a flop despite the best of science and almost unlimited resources. We recognize though that this world is far from perfect, so what is going on?

Pastor Phil Perry

Genesis 1

HIS Story
God

The Bible is the record of God given to us by God through ancient man. It is an eyewitness account of the events of history; but not just a history book. It provides us information on origins and relationships; but it is not just a genealogy record. It is 100% accurate in its scientifical observations; but it is not just a science book. It contains truths to live by; but it is not just a field manual for life. The Bible is God’s story and we are just characters in it.

How will you honor the Family name?

Communion
Communion

We remember the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in song, word and by partaking of the communion elements together.

Church
Be the Church...

Church is not a noun it is a verb. We are the church when we gather together. We are the church when we worship, serve, grow, reach out and fellowship together. Church is not a program or club we attend but a body that we are part of. Stop going to church and start being the church. America desperately needs us to be what we are called to be…

Pastor Phil Perry

Church
Stop Coming to Church…

What is church really all about? Have you ever asked why you are even here? Why can’t you just turn on the TV and do church at home? Why not be able to worship God while skiing, fishing or making pottery? Is church old fashioned and out of vogue today? Statistics would say that for most Americans that is the case, so why do we continue to meet? Why are you here today?

Mark 16

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
Sunday’s Joy!

That Sunday morning so long ago was the pivotal point in history. It was on that day that God flipped the world on edge. While the cross is the hinge point of history, it is the resurrection that confirms that truth to us. Little did those women realize that walking to the tomb on that early Sunday morning would be a journey millions would take later as well.

Mark 15

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
Dark Sabbath

The darkness of Friday turns into the bleakness of Saturday. While the gospels record little between the cross and the resurrection; there are some important lessons to learn. How would we have reacted to His death? Would guilt lead us to flee? Would sin cause us to doubt? Would we respond in faith and trust?

11/25/2012

Pastor Phil Perry

Mark 15

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
The Cross, part 2

Continuing the focus on the cross, let us look at the statements made on the cross and the immediate effects of His death. We see darkness and despair, confusion and chaos; but hope and salvation are also present. What looks like defeat is turned into victory!

11/18/2012

Pastor Phil Perry

Mark 15

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
The Cross, part 1

The pivotal moment in all of history is the cross. All that goes before and all that comes after finds meaning in the cross. Here we see clearly what God thinks about us and our sin problem. We understand what God’s love means to us. We begin to get a grasp on the Holiness of God and His attributes of justice and mercy.

Mark 15

God’s Servant: The Gospel according to Mark
Jesus Before Pilate

Friday morning and the scene shifts to the makeshift court of Pilate, the provincial Roman governor. He comes across as a weak even sympathetic character, yet he was strong enough to sign the death warrant for Jesus. The crowd is whipped into a frenzy demanding Jesus death. It is a dark morning, one that finds Jesus hated and condemned for us…
