So Great a Cloud of Witnesses – Hebrews 12:1-3
The saints (all followers of Jesus) who have gone before us are the reason we celebrate their lives on All Saints Day. The day before is All Hallows Eve. It has become a dark day when it was really intended to be a day of light. Pastor Frank Reeder makes a point that we need to reclaim the holiday for it's Christian origins.

    The first of a series in the ancient story of Job, who was severely tested and remained faithful. Satan, the accuser, tells God that the only reason he respects God is because of the way he has caused him to prosper. The tug of war is on. And we can relate. Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.

    A Heart of Wisdom – 1 Kings 2:10-12, 3:3-14
    Good Christians seem to be in constant search for God's perfect will.  We drive ourselves into a frenzy and seem never to be satisfied. When Solomon was given the freedom to ask anything he wanted as the new King of Israel, he asked for something more valuable than gold or long life. He asked for a heart that understands. "A Heart of Wisdom" is God's desire for all of us. Sermon by Pastor Frank Reeder.

    Keeping People Human – 2 Samuel 11:1-15
    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. But even in those whose hearts beat to serve the Lord have their dark places. Temptation is part of everybody's life. And in this story, David loses to it. Is there anyway back? Pastor Frank Reeder preaches this fourth in a series on the life of David.

    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.
