A Man You Can Follow Part 6 - Praying Like Jesus


July 8, 2018 - Senior Pastor Barry Clair continues the series "A Man You Can Follow" with a message called "Praying Like Jesus"

Have you ever wondered why Jesus prayed?  I don't have a lot of time on my hands, but I wonder about these things, especially when I'm preping for a message.  I understand the greatness of God.  I understand the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ.  And I know and understand that He is God, and He was God; He never gave up any portion of His God-ness.

Then, why did He need to pray?

In John chapter 10 verse 30, Jesus said, "I and my Father are One."  Why, then, would Jesus, who is One with the Father, have to pray?

A Man You Can Follow Pt 5 - Finding Purpose Pt 2


July 1, 2018 - Senior Pastor Barry Clair continues the series "A Man You Can Follow" with part 2 of the message "Finding Purpose"

Last week I began with a question, "Do you believe that God has a specific or special purpose for your life?  Do you believe that God created you and purposed in His sovereignty a unique plan just for you?  Do you believe that there is something God has for you to do that if you don't do it, it just won't get done on planet Earth?"

As our scripture text that we are going to read in just a moment puts it, He calls is own sheep by name and leads them out into the pasture.  He goes on ahead of them and His sheep follow Him.

He is a Man that we, as His sheep, can follow.

A Man You Can Follow Pt 5 - Finding Purpose Pt 1


June 24, 2018 - Senior Pastor Barry Clair continues the series "A Man You Can Follow" with part 1 of the message "Finding Purpose"

We are in a series, one of the most important I have ever preached.  We are seeing that being in every way a man, Jesus becomes our model, or example or as verse 29 of our Scripture text today puts it, "The firstborn of many brothers and sisters."

Today, I want to turn our attention to mission and purpose.  Do we have a divine purpose?  How do we find
and follow our mission?

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.
