Speaker: Norm Funk
Although short and often forgotten Jude offers key and altogether relevant teaching regarding the dangers of false teachers and the Christian's call in response. This is part I of a two part series that will address this topic.

Date: August 24 2014
Text: 3 John 9-15
In II John the Apostle warns about false teachers on the outside, in this sermon coming out of III John we look at John's warning about self-serving evil leaders on the inside.

Date: August 17 2014
Text: 3 John 1-8
In the first half of 3 John the apostle commends a man named Gaius in order to spur him on in his ministry. Through this ancient encouragement those in Jesus are inspired by both the heart of John and the life of Gaius.

Date: August 10, 2014
Text: 2 John 4-13
In the remainder of 2 John the apostle wants to be clear about exactly what walking in the truth accomplishes in the lives of believers. He wants his readers to understand that the truth of the gospel alters our behavior, affects our relationships, and awards us with joy.
Week 3: 2 John 1-3Speaker: Matt MenzelDownload MP3 (22125KB)
Date: August 3rd 2014
Text: 2 John 1-3
The letter of second John is a powerful call for the Church of Jesus to stand for truth in a world that desires the exact opposite. As we open this letter we will examine whether the way of our culture or the way of the gospel will ultimately lead us to the universal human desires of love, unity, and salvation.
Week 2: Philemon 8-25Speaker: Matt MenzelDownload MP3 (20124KB)
Date: July 27 2014
Text: Philemon 8-25
As we continue unpacking Paul's letter to Philemon we will examine the extreme request being made of him. We will notice that God's grace not only frees believers to love and forgive but it also compels them to die to self.
Week 1: Philemon 1-7Speaker: Norm FunkDownload MP3 (26440KB)
Date: July 20 2014
Text: Philemon 1-7
In this kick off to a new series we look at the book of Philemon, a small and unique book, that in a most personal way addresses the all important topic of forgiveness.
