Pastor Phil Perry

HIS Story
Israel’s Rebellion Against God

As the story progress from King David to his descendants, the decline of the nation becomes evident. Corruption, chaos, intrigue, coup, murder, disobedience; it quickly descended into a mess. God was at work through it all though even in the darkest moments. We as a nation also need to take a self-evaluation and ask how similar we are to ancient Israel…

1Samuel 16

HIS Story
David, a Man After His Own Heart

Perhaps the most famous of Israel’s kings is David. He was a musician, a shepherd, a giant killer and most famous as an adulterer. He was both loved and feared as king; and the Bible describes him as a man after God’s own heart…

Ruth 1

HIS Story
Israel's First King

For Israel, the period before the rise of the kings is one of turmoil, chaos and problems. The priests show corruption and sinful tendencies. The judges, while regionally effective, don’t bring the nation together. Every man does what he thinks is right and Israel is far from a unified nation. She needs a leader who will bring them together and most importantly bring them back into obedience before God…

Joshua 1

HIS Story
The Promised Land

Following the ministry of a great man can be difficult. Joshua is Moses hand selected successor and he is responsible for getting this rag-tag group of wilderness wanderers to settle down and conquer the land God had led them to. Vast changes were occurring from how God led them to how they were organized. They were facing a land filled with city-states that had to be defeated one by one. It was an incredible 400 year period between Moses and the rise of the kings…

Exodus 32

HIS Story
The Wilderness Journey

For 40 years Israel wandered in the wilderness. Moses faithfully led them and true to form they tested Moses and God the whole way. Israel though is not much different from us. They were consumed with what was right in front of them, not the cloud of God’s presence, but the circumstances of life. God showed Himself to them on a daily basis, yet all they saw was problems and troubles…

Exodus 20

HIS Story
The 10 Words

The 10 commandments have garnered lots of attention lately. They have been banned from courtrooms and schools as “too religious”. Most people in America couldn’t tell you what was in them anyway and certainly society doesn’t want those restrictive things telling us what to do. Sadly many church attenders don’t know what they are or if they still apply to us; and certainly how we can see God in them…

Exodus 13-19

HIS Story
The Exodus

As Israel leaves Egypt, God has to continually protect, sustain and correct them. Once again God’s character and patience come shining through. Israel constantly tests Him, but He is kind and slow to anger with them; what a Great God we serve!

4/21/2013

Pastor Phil Perry

Exodus 7-13

HIS Story
Plagues and Passover

God’s story continues with a confrontation between 2 powerful men; Amenhotep II and Moses. God uses this confrontation to not only set Israel free, but to proclaim His sovereignty and power over all of the gods of Egypt. Our God is greater, our God is stronger, our God is higher than any other god…

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.

Pastor Phil Perry

Exodus 1-7

HIS Story
The Call of Moses

One of the most famous men in the Bible is Moses (Moshe). He is seen as a powerful leader, a prophet and a priest. He did not start out his ministry in great power and strength. It is a reminder that ultimately if God is not in it, it will fail; no matter how great a leader we are…

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…

3/24/2013

Pastor Phil Perry

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?

3/17/2013

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…

Pastor Phil Perry

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.

Pastor Phil Perry

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?
