    Ecclesiastes – “The End of the Matter”
    Today we finish looking at the book of Ecclesiastes focusing on “the end of the matter.”  Our text is found in chapter 12, the final chapter. The teacher has been philosophical, practical and skeptical.  He now draws his thinking back to the One who transcends; who alone can help us make sense of it all.

    Ecclesiastes – Guard Our Steps as We Go to the House of the LORD
    We return to the book of Ecclesiastes this week.  We will look at chapter 5 as we gather around the table of our Lord.  It begins by instructing us to “guard our steps as we go to the house of the Lord.” Solomon reminds us to come here and listen, rather than offer a “sacrifice of fools."  Let’s pray that the Lord speaks to us this morning.

    Ecclesiastes – What is the LORD saying?
    Ecclesiastes is a fascinating book of the Bible.  It has been found difficult to interpret properly, mainly because of the author's range of emotions. He’s found on one hand talking about the meaninglessness of life and on the other about the goodness of God! We’ll take a look at what the Lord is saying to us through Solomon over the next couple weeks.

    Know God
    Knowing God's will is complex.  Knowing God is more important and two thirds of the answer to knowing God's will. Over the years it's been my experience that Christians who focus on knowing God, rarely ask what is God's will for my life; because knowing God gives us assurance, confidence, clarity of vision and an elusive gem called wisdom.  So this morning I want to focus on knowing God.  Next week we'll focus more specifically on knowing God's will.

    Knowing God’s Will
    What is God's will is a question we all are prone to ask. Can we know God’s will? And how do we go about discerning exactly what that is? These are common questions with which Christians wrestle. We’ll ponder those questions for the next two weeks.
    If you’re hearing this, I'm confident that it’s His will that you’ve come this morning.

    Growing in the Grace of Giving
    This morning we’ll take a look at the topic of giving. The apostle Paul reminds us to “grow in the grace of giving.”  Giving is a grace that marks a man or woman of God, and it’s something we can grow in. We’ll explore that this morning.

    God’s Ancient Challenge Is Still Relevant Today
    This week we return to the book of Amos. The challenge from God to the people of Israel some 2800 years ago, is still alarmingly relevant for the church today.

    God’s Word Is Timeless
    Good morning! Thanks for joining us.  This week and next, we’ll be studying the message of Amos; a prophet who relays God's message to the people of Israel.  The sins addressed almost 2,800 years ago are stunningly relevant to our situation. God's Word is timeless and refreshingly applicable.

    Ministry
    Today we put our focus on ministry! We’ll take a look at what exactly we mean by that, why serving is important, and some of the obstacles that derail effective ministry.  Each one of us has gifts that can be a blessing to others!  In addition, we hope you hang around after the service to interact and ask some questions.
