  • With Abraham Listen

    Aaron Yoder - March 08, 2020

    What covenant did God make with Abram as the Lord was leading him to be the 'father of nations?'  What does this covenant have to do with us today?  We dig into those questions by studying Genesis 15 and Romans 2 & 4.
  • With Noah Listen

    Aaron Yoder - March 01, 2020

    What was life like before and after the historical, Biblical flood?  More importantly, what lessons does it teach us about life now and the heart of God?  We dig into those questions in our third message on 'God of the Covenants.'
  • With Fallen Humanity Listen

    Aaron Yoder - February 23, 2020

    What are some ways in which sin has impacted all of humanity through Adam and Eve's act of disobedience?  How did Satan allure them into such a rebellion?  How did God respond?  As we look at Genesis 3, we discover our profound need, but God's provision of victorious grace.
  • With Creation Listen

    Aaron Yoder - February 16, 2020

    What is a covenant?  Are there any covenants that God made before He established one with Noah?  As this series begins, we look at those two questions and God's incredible relationship with creation, humans and Adam.
  • The Sacrifical Seeker Listen

    Aaron Yoder - June 09, 2019

    Why did God ask Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac?  We dig into this story today to see it's lasting significant for God's people and it's foreshadowing of the sacrifice of Jesus.
  • The Unashamed Seeker Listen

    Aaron Yoder - June 02, 2019

    Why did Jesus say, "The Son of Man came to seek and save the lost?"  What does it mean to be lost?  Does God really seek after people?  We explore these critical topics as this new series on the mission heart of God begins.  This week, we consider the 'lostness' of humanity through Adam and Eve's rebellion.
  • Hope Listen

    Aaron Yoder - April 01, 2018

    What is hope?  How do we know if our hope is placed in that which is lasting and secure?  We look at these questions in light of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Abraham's example and Mary Magdalene's testimony.
  • Faith Listen

    Aaron Yoder - March 25, 2018

    Christians talk often about faith...but what is it?  How is faith defined according to Scripture?  What does Abram's story tell us about the difference between faith and saving faith?  We consider those questions as well as look ahead to the suffering of Jesus in order to anchor of our in that which saves.
  • Wealth and Generosity Listen

    Aaron Yoder - March 18, 2018

    How ought believers manage the wealth which God supplies?  Likewise, do we have an obligation to be generous either to God or others?  We study these topics in light of the Lord's provision and blessing upon Abram.
  • God's Covenant and Flood Listen

    Aaron Yoder - March 11, 2018

    How did the flood alter our world?  We study this culturally relevant topic in view of both Scripture and geographic studies. Then we use the flood story to better understand the faithful, covenant keeping nature of God.
  • Worship Listen

    Aaron Yoder - March 04, 2018

    How does God view worship?  Likely, many Christians have ideas of what worship is but rarely do we try to ask the question from God's perspective.  We dig into this topic by studying Cain and Abel's first recorded sacrifice to the Lord and what was motivating them in their worship of the living God.
  • Women and Atonement Listen

    Aaron Yoder - February 25, 2018

    What are the challenges that women face as a result of living in a fallen world?  By zooming into Genesis 3:16, we look at the layers of discord which are common for many women.  Then we consider the way in which Jesus makes women...and men...new.
  • The Fall Listen

    Dr. Troy Teater - February 18, 2018

    How was Eve tempted away from the truth about God's commands?  Guest preacher, Dr. Troy Teater, looks at that question and applies it to our ongoing temptation to deny God's perfect way?
  • Men and Marriage Listen

    Aaron Yoder - February 11, 2018

    What is the role of husband in the marriage relationship as determined by God?  This difficult, but important topic, begins by studying why God created Adam before Eve and then assessing the dynamics which make for a healthy, Godly marriage.
  • Spiritual Beings Listen

    Aaron Yoder - February 04, 2018

    What are angels and demons?  Is there really a personal 'devil' who holds temporary authority of the world?  If so, what is his work and battle cry against people?  We dig into these difficult questions - leading to the gift of grace and conquest of Jesus Christ.
  • Work Listen

    Aaron Yoder - January 28, 2018

    Is there any such thing as pointless work?  We look at the concept of work and stewardship in light of God's command for Adam to tend to the Garden of Eden - citing examples from the Global Anabaptist and Mennonite Church.
  • Creation Listen

    Aaron Yoder - January 21, 2018

    How long did it take for God to create the world?  This question swirls within Christian conversations - especially in the light of the claims of modern science.  We dig into this difficult topic but then look at the simple truths for Christians to proclaim confidently about the creation of the world.
  • Holy Spirit of God Listen

    Aaron Yoder - January 14, 2018

    Who is the Holy Spirit?  How can we make sense of what happens in believers when He comes to fill their spirit?  We dig into these complex but important questions in a board overview of the Holy Spirit throughout the Bible.
