In John 4: 31-38 Jesus speaks of sowing, reaping, and harvest. These are beautiful metaphors because of the visions of new life they invoke. Indeed, God has sown the harvest of our salvation! In this sermon, Janet shows that, in these words, we also find both purpose and guidance for our following of Christ.

A message well-suited for the circumstances we are all facing right now. Drawing from 2 Timothy, it speaks of the urgency and preparedness that ought to shape our response to God’s love and calling.
Ever wonder why we still use the Lord’s Prayer? In this message Janet looks at the familiar prayer that Jesus gave us and reveals why it remains a treasure for those who follow Christ.
Galatians 3:23-29 Before the coming of this faith, we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed. So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under […]
