A Man You Can Follow - Part 4 - Forgiveness - Part 2


June 17, 2018 - Senior Pastor Barry Clair continues the series "A Man You Can Follow" with part 2 of the message "Forgiveness"

Joshua Rogers, a christian blogger, who in a recent post that was picked up by the Fox News Network yesterday, recounts a memory of telling his dad off for years and years of failure as a father.  And he says in the article that

"...the pressure of unforgiveness was building up inside of me until I finally blew up one night
I told him off, recounting every failure like I was a prosecutor in a closing arguement."

Then he talks about his fathers response, which just blew him away.  His father responded with a sincere apology.  Then he writes about how it affected him.  He writes, and I quote,

"Dads genuine contrition took the fun out of holding offenses against him.  In choosing weakness, his love became stonger than my hurt.  All of us dads have damaged our kids in some way, and those father wounds run deep."

Today, we're going to continue talking about following Jesus in the way of forgiveness.

A Man You Can Follow - Part 4 - Forgiveness - Part 1


June 10, 2018 - Senior Pastor Barry Clair brings a new message called "Forgiveness" in the current series "A Man You Can Follow"

Jesus was a man who never left anything unsaid or undone, no matter how difficult it was.
This last week, a couple of celebrities committed suicide.  I don't pretend to understand the precipitating pain that these people in the popular spotlight were suffering.

Money, fame, and social status do not ensure a pain free existance.

A Man You Can Follow - Part 3 - Will Power - Part 2


May 27, 2018 - Senior Pastor Barry Clair continues part 3 the series "A Man You Can Follow" with the message "Will Power - Part 2"

We've been looking at the human nature of Jesus.  Last week we started to talk about the role of will power in doing the will of God.  And we saw in our text that even Jesus struggled to do what the will of God demanded.

Jesus struggled with His human will.  His human and divine will were not always in perfect sync.

And that is why Jesus prayed as much as He did.

A Man You Can Follow - Part 3 - Will Power


May 20, 2018 - Senior Pastor Barry Clair continues the series "A Man You Can Follow" with the message "Will Power"

For the last several weeks, we've been looking at the human nature of Jesus.  We all know that He is God in His divine nature.  But oftentimes we forget that it is equally important to follow the example of Jesus in His human nature.

We will see in our text today that even Jesus, who had no fallen nature like every one of us humans do, struggled to do the will of God that God demanded.  His human will and the divine will were not always in perfect sync.

That moment of crisis in the Godhead where again Jesus will was in conflict with the divine will of the Father threatened to derail the entire plan of Salvation.

A Man You Can Follow - Part 2 - Family Matters


May 13, 2018 - Senior Pastor Barry Clair continues teh series "A Man You Can Follow" with the message "Family Matters"



There is nothing in all the world that can mess a person up, halt all spiritual growth, and even derail the Christian life like family issues.  
The phychological and psychiatric industry is fueld by faulty or absentee parenting and co-dependent families.

Jesus struggled in His humanity with the very same issues that we struggle with in our humanity.  He then becomes the greatest example of how to walk
through the trials, tests, challenges and disappointments that life brings.  As divinity, He is our God.  As humanity He is our older brother.
