Sermons on God in control
What can we learn from the life of Deborah from the Old Testament?
This week we will look at the life of Noah and lessons that we can learn from Noah’s life.
On week 4 of our “I Love My Church” series, we’re looking at the big picture of what one of the main purposes is for the church. Why did Jesus choose this method to spread His message? What’s the point?
Gary takes us through chapters 5-7 as the plot thickens in Esther’s story. One of the main themes in Esther is how we see “coincidences” or things that “just so happen” to occur at exactly the right time. Since the author intentionally doesn’t mention God, we are left to peer behind the events as they happen on the surface, and see God’s hand working, even when it doesn’t seem like it.
As we continue through the Book of Esther we see themes that can be reflected in the world around us. Gary looks at chapter 3 and the history of the issues of the Jewish people, and how that can be mirrored in the disdain often reserved for God’s people throughout history.
The Book of Esther is unique in the Bible in that God isn’t actually mentioned once! There are no prayers, God doesn’t speak, and we get to see the dramatic story unfold. Throughout the story, we see messiness, scandal, sex, and drama, and yet… we see the Lord at work whether it looks obvious at the time or not.

Week 2 in our Conquering the Giants series. Gary is speaking about how we face illness in our lives. While in the middle of the COVID-19 issue this is timely, it’s also incredibly relevant to our everyday lives. Whether you are dealing with a chronic issue, a scary diagnosis, or walking through that with someone you love, illness is a part of our lives. How do we face that giant?
There is so much fear in our world right now; all areas of our lives have gone topsy turvy. How do we deal with fear? How do we face giants that seem impossible? Pastor Gary Bye kicks off our new series by talking about the fear that all of us have.
Gary finishes our series on 1 Peter – focusing on Peter’s words in the final chapter, “Stand Firm.” We will be looking at using the Armor of God as we stand firm in following Jesus during tough times.
