In a beautifully constructed and educational sermon this week, Bob Kolodner looks at the fantastically complex logistics that God faced when sending the Messiah to earth. Bob includes some very informative context from Genesis and numerous other books of the Old Testament to build an original narrative to explain these events. This is indeed another truly wonderful sermon by our equally wonderful minister Bob. If you missed it this week, check out the sermon below or go to YouTube. If you saw it live this week, watch it again – you’ll get even more out of it the second time through.
In an outstanding sermon this week, Bob Kolodner asked the question “How Patient is God?”. His love may be infinite, but can the same be said for His patience?
To answer this question Bob takes us from the scripture written by Peter during his incarceration, to the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1946, to the subsequent nuclear arms race, and finally to God’s power to destroy the earth.
As Peter stated in 2 Peter 10 “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare”. Is it really as bleak as it sounds or are we forgetting something very important? To find out, you’ll just have to watch this week’s sermon video by clicking the image below.
In another outstanding sermon, Bob Kolodner asks – How loving is God? Find out the answer by enjoying Bob’s multi-media sermon this week; featuring scripture, thought provoking narrative and a special parable told in a short video presentation. This is a must watch sermon, even if you were in church this week – watch it again. Have a blessed week everyone.
Fran Powell would like to remind us that February is Linen Drive Month for the Homeless shelter– and this year we need towels!
Apparently the towels they have are becoming worn and threadbare and they could really use some new ones.
So, please bring bath towels, wash cloths, and hand towels to help us build a pyramid of towels for the shelter families!
Another terrific and powerful sermon from our very own minister Bob. He makes some powerful points about God’s grace and how we should think about it. “We have to understand that grace was given us to accommodate a change in our behavior – so that we can live redeemed lives.” He also has some very interesting thoughts about how the universe is designed, not just some random event and how that all fits in with Gob’s plan for us; since before time began.
Pray for our leaders, community and missionaries: Our elders- Bob Hoagland, Bill Powell, & Tom Ryon; our ministers, our government; the Afakules and the clinic in Togo, Koonce family, the preschool; the persecuted church throughout the world.
Please keep the Cooper family in your prayers – Sam is working out of state and Randi is holding down the fort and two jobs while he’s away.

This week’s sermon by Bob Kolodner contained a powerful message about sin and how it drives a wedge between us and God. Just as it did for Adam and Eve, so it goes for us too. Watch Bob’s sermon about this topic at the flowing link. It’s a robust reminder of what our struggles to escape sin are truly all about.
