Sermon Series: Defeating Stress and Depression (2 parts)
Depression is all too real and all too common. But there are good things
we can do to avoid and overcome it. Chuck Norris (yes,
that Chuck Norris) has some great tips, and Pastor Scott ties them
to scripture in this 2 part series on
April 28 (Part 1) and
May 5 (Part 2)
Guest Preacher: Claire Guisfredi, "Challenge to Care and Equip"
On May 12, Claire Guisfredi, the Executive Director for North Kent
Community Services (NKCS) joined us for worship and shared a gospel
message. NKCS provides a food and clothing pantry and other
services across north Kent County. While Claire speaks often
this was her first semon, and she connected gospel and life addressing
the challenge to both care for those in need and equip them to care for
themselves. We thank Claire for joining us.
Hope's "Jingle Offerings" in the months of May and June are dedicated to
NKCS. Audio of Claire's message is
Sermon Series -
Answers for Atheists
During March and April Pastor Scott shared
sermon series, titled “Answers for Atheists” that explored some of
the foundations for our faith that are sometimes claimed to be unfounded, unreliable,
unsupported, destructive to society and a foolish myth in conflict with
the enlightened and scientific age of the 21st century.
Some of these claims can raise concerns and doubts in Christians who
wish to be faithful, but who don’t have a ready response in heart and
mind to these challenges. This series generated quite a bit of
conversation, so we'll leave the summary and links to the audio
recordings here for a bit longer.

Jesus Lived and Led:
Jesus was a man, not a myth. The
"history" of the gospels is reliable.
(March 17 audio mp3)
3. Jesus Suffered and Died:
died. He didn't faint and wake up later. The Romans were
really good at killing, and some wrote about killing this Jesus.

4. Jesus Resurrected:
The biggest and most important miracle.
And there really are not any other rational explanations. Easter
Sunday message, of course!

5. Jesus Changed the World (for GOOD!):
Some skeptics claim Christianity has
caused so much pain, war and hate. See what this carpenter really
