Jesus is Practical: Prayer

Prayer is our direct line of communication to God!  It doesn’t get any better than that!  It is how we stay in tune with Him at any time of the day in any situation.

So why do we struggle to do it?  What happens when it seems like nobody’s listening or hearing our prayers?  Why should we pray?  What does it look like to pray effectively?

Please listen and find out.  This talk was given 4/20/10.

Jesus is Practical: Accountability

It is seldom talked about but urgently needed… Accountability!  What does it mean and what does it mean to be accountable?  Who are we really accountable to?  If this one topic were taken seriously by the church alone, what would our world look like?  We would be the beacon of light that the world is looking for in all it’s “darkness” and attract people to Jesus!

Accountability isn’t easy, but it is necessary and very healthy to any individual, group, or society in general!  We NEED this in our lives, but so many of us avoid it like the plague.

Join our discussion as we investigate!  This talk was given on 4/13/10.

Jesus is Practical: Serving Those In Need

Jesus’ words to His disciples and followers were consistent with the major thrust in Scripture towards serving those in need.  There are poor and oppressed people in every culture, environment and economy.  Oppression happens on multiple levels and has many ways of manifesting itself.  This talk focuses on the many ways people are either oppressed or are the oppressors and discovering what we can do about it.

Talk was given 4/6/10.

Jesus is Practical: Community

The natural reaction to the resurrection by the disciples of Jesus was to band together and love one another in remarkable ways!  Why?  What is so powerful about being a part of a community? A Family? Why do we need this?  Please listen as we learn together about being God’s family/community!

This talk was given 3/9/10.

Jesus is Practical: Forgiveness

What does it mean to forgive?  Why is it so important to be forgiving as a follower of Christ?  How do we do this?

Please listen to one of the most powerful talks/discussions given this semester!  Many said that they were deeply moved from this talk and that burdens that they had been holding on to were finally let go that evening and a peace and restoration was seen and felt in their hearts and even some damaged relationships were healed!

Talk given 3/2/10.

Jesus is Practical: Celebrating Diversity

Who might be seated next to you in Heaven that it might bother you that they are there too?

During the middle of “Black History Month” we decided to see what Jesus had to say about diversity!  This talk focuses on some hard-hitting truth about Jesus’ love for ALL people and what that means for whom we are meant to love!

Steve gave this teaching on 2/23/10.

End-Times Series: Part 6

Civil unrest, Wars, Natural disasters, Financial Meltdown, Political corruption;  It seems the world around us is falling apart.  Perhaps the most difficult thing to face is the realization that the current state of things is just the beginning. Fear, desperation and worry can overcome us and start to influence our thoughts and decisions if we are not careful to keep our focus on Jesus Christ.

Do you ever wonder what is going on in the world?  What direction is this world headed in?  What times do we find ourselves in?  What should we do? What does God say will happen and from where do we draw hope in such desperate and difficult times for us all?

In this rich and hard-hitting sermon series Pastor Frank explains some of the most mysterious and symbolic passages in scripture from the books of Daniel, Revelation, and from Jesus’ words in the Gospels about the things that are to come, eventually leading up to His return!

Pastor Frank is the head Pastor at Bethlehem Community Church.  For 17 years, he has had a sermon series on the End Times on his heart to share with the congregation, and for 17 years he heard the Spirit telling him to “wait!”  Recently he heard the Holy Spirit giving him the “green light” to share this.

Perhaps you’ve noticed recently there seems to be a greater and greater “buzz” in the Church and more sermon series popping up about end-times!  Why now?  Maybe that’s not an accident!

I’m posting this series here because I think everyone needs to hear this!  I’ve listened to a lot of messages on this topic, but few come close to the poignancy and timeliness of this message!

Key Scriptures:

Matt 16:2-3

Dan 9:20-27

Neh. 2:7-8

Luke 19:42-44

Matt 24:4-8

Isa 66:8

2 Tim 2:1-4
