After the returned exiles stopped the work in Ezra chapter 4, they began to prioritize their own comfort over the work God had called them to accomplish. Dave Schneider taught from Ezra 5 this week and we saw how God sent prophets to reorganize their priorities. We too can use God’s words in scripture to experience God’s grace through His loving truth.

The people of Israel had returned to Jerusalem and began to do the work God had for them, but soon they found resistance. Dave Schneider teaches through Ezra 4 and we learn about the tactics of the enemy to keep us from doing God's work. The enemy will be persistent, but God has already won the war on the cross, so let us place our faith in Jesus!

In this message Dave Schneider leads us to revive our worship of God in both spirit and truth!

This past Mother's Day, Dave Schneider led us through the story of Rahab and how God turned her story into His Story.

(due to an audio mistake this sermon includes the last few minutes of the Communion time held directly before the message)
Often it isn't the failure itself that shipwrecks a Christian's faith, but their response to the failure. Matt Ward begins this new series on getting to the other side of failure by focusing on how we can prepare our hearts before we fail so that we can develop a faith that endures. This three part series will track the story of Peter's denial of Jesus.
