Preaching is a living activity. The delivery of the Word is meant to be deeply informed by the relationship between pastor and people. There can be no substitute for being present in your own assembly when the Word is preached by your own minister. We strongly encourage you to listen regularly and receptively to the Word preached by your own teaching elder.

With that in mind, we offer the following sermons. If you find them helpful we would be more than happy to hear from you and to get to know you.

Lead us not into temptation (Ephesians 6:10-20)

Psalms for singing
Psalm 31:1-5
Psalm 91A:1-2, 9-12

We think about what the prayer "Father... lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil" says, and does not say, about:
1. God--he will not tempt us, but works for our sanctification
2. Temptation--we cannot avoid trials, but we must resist temptations
3. The tempter--he is not God's equal, but he is is greater than us
4. Ourselves--we are not competent of ourselves, but our help is from God
