Yesterday, from this very spot, I put forth a thesis.  I believe that the bible teaches very clearly that every Christian should have Joy.

JOY, Part 1


December 23, 2018 - Pastor Barry Clair presents part 1 of the message "JOY".

Today I'm going to begin a two-part message.  I'm going to being the first part today and finish it up real quick tomorrow evening.

Let me begin by asking you a question.  When I say the words 'Christmas' and 'Jesus', what words come to mind?  If we really think about it, there are often at least four words that are most always associated with 'Jesus' at 'Christmas'.  They are Love, Peace, Hope, and of course Joy.

And I would submit that the number one word associated with Jesus at Christmas is Joy.  In fact, JOY is a cultural icon of Christmas.

What DID Mary Know?


December 16, 2018 - Pastor Barry Clair presents the message "What DID Mary Know?".

There is a great song that, at the risk of being overplayed, has entered into Christmas Carol status.  The song is called Mary Did You Know? ...you'll hear it a bunch this season, but it includes some lyrics that are very ponderable.  For instance: "Mary did you know...

  • When you kiss your little baby, you kiss the face of God?

  • That sleeping child you're holding is the great I Am?


WOW!

Well lately, I began to ask the question, What DID Mary know?  That's what I'd like to try to answer this morning...

Living Up: When Life Is Getting You Down - Pt. 5


December 2, 2018 - Pastor Barry Clair continues with Part 5 of the series "Living Up: When Life Is Getting You Down".

In the course of this series, we have been looking at several emotional and psychological issues that transcended local culture and history. These ruinous societal issues have threatened to destroy people of faith down through the ages.

Today, we open the New Covenant to stud a woman who was closely associated with Jesus.  We will see that Martha had a problem with stress.  She was stressed out!  It caused her to have difficulty living up when life was getting her down.
