Ice Cream or Spinach?

We wrapped up our Staying True sermon series yesterday as Pastor Bill took us to II Timothy 4:1-4. We looked at Paul’s emphatic command to Timothy to “Preach the Word”. And we spent time looking at the responsibility of the Pastors at Five Forks to do just that. Why preach the Word? Because Jesus is […]

Preach the Word!

  The apostle Paul witnessed many people turning away from the faith by the time he neared the end of his life, and this is why it is so important for us to consider carefully his final words in the fourth and final chapter of II Timothy. Paul instructs Timothy to “Preach the Word”, but […]

“You should know this…”

  “You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times.” So writes Paul to Timothy as he draws near the end of his letter, and to the end of his life.  This Sunday morning Pastor Ray brings the message talking about the usefulness of Scripture.  We’ll be looking […]


“I See Our Giving Is Down.”

Maybe you have heard these words spoken at some point in the past month or two. Maybe you’ve said it yourself as you follow the numbers that are published every week in the church newsletter.   If you follow these numbers, you know we have been running $10,000 to $15,000 behind our Spending Plan goal.

Living Out Our Faith

We live in an ever-changing culture here in the United States and around the world. The events in Paris last Friday evening play a part in the shifting of culture…how we view the world, how we view ourselves, how we view our faith. How do we defend and live out our faith in a world […]


“What Are You Going to do After Church?”

Now rarely—occasionally but rarely—will it be so obvious […]

  Would you like to be useful to God? This week Adam brings the message in the Auditorium where we will be looking at 3 images: The Approved Workman…The Noble Instrument…The Lord’s Servant.   Paul uses these images to help us see how we can be useful to God. Adam’s 3 main points: 1.  What Being […]
