Sermon: An Attractive Calling Speaker: Rev. Frank Jewett
Pastor Frank continues in his Pastoral Epistles Series with a teaching from 1 Timothy 3:1-4. Most human ‘aspiring’ does not rise to the righteous level of ‘one who strives to be an overseer.’ We are in a constant battle to weigh our desires as to whether they are pleasing unto God or merely pleasing ourselves. Jesus has made it possible through His Holy Spirit for men and women to aspire to those things that are truly ‘beautiful and attractive.’
Sermon: No Joking Matter Speaker: Rev. Frank Jewett
Continuing in his Pastoral Epistle’s Series; Pastor Frank challenges us to not only pray for our President; but to pray using his name. He reminds us from 1 Timothy 2:1-4 of the pleasure this brings to our Lord as well as the promises that we too can claim. It’s time we prayed more as a church for the leaders and authorities who serve us from the home to the Capitol. All joking aside.
Pastor Frank began his first sermon for 2021 with three phrases the Apostle Paul used in 1 Timothy 1:1-2. “Christ Jesus, ‘God our Savior’ and ‘Christ Jesus our Hope’ when closely considered were a good Segway into the communion service. This was the first of a series of messages He plans to preach out of the Pastoral Epistles.
Sermon: Taking Inventory Speaker: Rev. Frank Jewett
The year has come to an end. Just as a good businessman or woman would do at this time of year is to take inventory. Pastor Frank R.

Quoting Pastor Frank Jewett, ‘This morning, as we see Christmas coming; I want to get even a little more precise with you.

Sermon: What The Song Says Speaker: Rev. Frank Jewett
Using phrases out of the familiar Christmas Carol, ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’ to support teachings out of John 17; Pastor Frank encourages the believers to ask to receive your gift of salvation; Use your gift when you receive it and be quick to proclaim to others how they can receive their gift. Our blood bought gift is ready to be delivered. It’s time for us to also discover the added benefits that accompany our salvation gift.
