    It was springtime. David is at home while everybody else goes to battle. Keep in mind, this is the king who has a heart for God.

    Where God Lives – 2 Samuel 7:1-14
    David wants to build God a house. However, God already has a house. And it is not built by any human hands. Where does God live? "In the Kingdom of Heaven" might be the quick response. And the answer would be yes. But where is that? Closer than most of us think. Learn about the place God lives in this sermon by Pastor Frank Reeder.

    A Lesson from the Bees – 2 Samuel 5:11-5, 9-10
    David was not the king of a unified Israel until seven years into his reign. The key was his leadership and a willingness to wait. Then the tribes made covenant with him. Covenants are not easy with humans. But with the bees, a way of living in community seems to be built into their DNA. What can we learn from them? Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.

    The synagogue official's daughter is dying. He comes desperately seeking Jesus' help. On the way to see the 12 year old daughter, he is side tracked by a woman who has had an affliction for 12 years. Jairus may have been chafing. Doesn't Jesus know about the principle of triage? Jesus responds clearly, "Only believe."  Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.

    The turbulence of a storm in our lives creates the atmosphere for significant worry and stress. And as faithful followers of Jesus, we want him awake and active.

Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.

    Forsaking Religion – Mark 2:23 – 3:6
    Curious that a pastor would encourage you to forsake religion? Then listen in. There can be a big difference between religion and genuine faith in following Jesus wholeheartedly. One tries to look good. The other has its heart set on being good. We are not saved by our goodness. That is the domain of Jesus' work alone. But maturing into Jesus' way of goodness is what he longs for in us.

    Life Companion – John 16:5-15
    Pentecost Sunday. What an amazing gift the Father and Son sent to the church, the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit who convicts (sheds light on) people to be world changers. How could anything be better than the flesh and blood presence of Jesus? But Jesus says it is to our advantage that he leaves. Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.
