How ought we pray when we feel crushed by the weight of our sin before the Lord?  Psalm 51 has been the standard prayer for times of confession.  After learning about the circumstances surrounding this prayer, Pastor Aaron leads us into four areas of how to confession our sins 'well' before a Holy God.
  • Here's My Allegience Listen

    Aaron Yoder - January 01, 2017

    Why do Christians call Jesus a 'king?' And if that's true, how can we be mindful of His kingdom each day?  We dig into these topics as we study Psalm 72 and come to the conclusion of this series.
  • Here's My Worship Listen

    Aaron Yoder - December 25, 2016

    Christians live between the first advent of Jesus and the second advent of Jesus (His final return).  How can we keep an attitude of worship as we wait?  We consider this question as we look at Psalm 95 and stories from the Christmas story.
  • Here's Our Message Listen

    FMC Children - December 11, 2016

    The FMC Children lead us through the Christmas story - including a brief children's moment in Psalm 96.
  • Here's My Envy Listen

    Aaron Yoder - December 04, 2016

    Is envy really that big of a deal - or is it one of those 'bad' emotions which we can learn to live with?  We dig into this topic by considering the life of Herod, the teachings of Jesus and Psalm 73.
  • Here's My Health Listen

    Aaron Yoder - November 27, 2016

    How can Christians remain faithful to the Lord with health problems and aging bodies?  When we feel abandoned, how ought we pray?  We study these questions in light of Psalm 71 and the example of Simeon and Anna from Luke 2 - leading us to subjects like chronic pain and retirement.
  • Here's My Integrity Listen

    Aaron Yoder - November 20, 2016

    If we want to grow in intimacy with God, Christians need to deal with two subjects - integrity and our prayer life.  We look at those subjects through Psalm 25 to understand what it takes to live faithfully in every area of life and how to shape our prayers for the sake of faithful, God-honoring living.
  • Here's My Sin Listen

    Aaron Yoder - November 13, 2016

    How ought we pray when we feel crushed by the weight of our sin before the Lord?  Psalm 51 has been the standard prayer for times of confession.  After learning about the circumstances surrounding this prayer, Pastor Aaron leads us into four areas of how to confession our sins 'well' before a Holy God.

  • Here's My Control Listen

    Aaron Yoder - October 30, 2016

    What are some of the promises from God which are available to us as we give Him more control over our lives?  We answer this question as we look at David's heart for the Lord and King Saul's barriers from trusting God as His shepherd.
  • Here's My Loneliness Listen

    Paul Walles - October 23, 2016

    How ought we to pray when we feel completely alone?  Guest Paul Walles leads us through Psalm 88 for those moments.
  • Here's My Depression Listen

    Aaron Yoder - October 16, 2016

    How should Christians navigate the difficult seasons where spiritual and emotional depression is at it's strongest?  Psalm 42 leads us to five ways in which believers can keep their head above water until the Lord provides solid ground again.
  • Reaping and Sowing Listen

    Pastor Roberto - October 09, 2016

    Guest Pastor Roberto from PAZ in Brazil speaks about the need for Christians to reap and sow in ways which are beneficial and lasting.
  • Praying With The Psalms Listen

    Aaron Yoder - October 02, 2016

    Where do Christians find words to pray during our most difficult moments?  Most find a way to express their emotions in the Psalms.  We begin this series by first considering 'why' believers turn to the Psalms for prayer and then considering how Psalms 1 informs our prayer lives.
