Celebrating the Ministers of Church of the Cross

Scripture: James 2:14-18

Speaker: Mr. Joe Gerstle (Lay Leader)

Christian Action is God's love made visible. God's love is freely given to us. When we have developed a relationship with God and accepted His love, Christian action--service to others-- will flow out of that relationship. This message outlines steps to take toward Christian action.

Is the Lord Among Us or Not?

Scripture: Exodus 17:1-17

Speaker: Rev. Dr. John Whitaker

Is the LORD among us or not? Why do people concentrate on negative rather than positive experiences? The Israelites complain in the face of loss. People forget God’s previous faithfulness. God provides in the wilderness. Water flowed from the rock. God prepares us for times of wilderness.
