• What Is So Significant About Sunday?

    Since my childhood, I have watched the slow and steady trend of the devaluing of Sunday, corporate worship. When I was growing up, we planned everything else around church services.

  • Sermon Discussion Questions from Acts 6:1-7.

  • To Buy or Not to Buy

    A Biblical Look at Material Possessions and Giving Through my recent study of the book of Acts, I have been awestruck by the generosity of the first-century church; the believers were amazingly unattached to money and possessions.

  • SERMON DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: “THE MARK OF EVANGELISM” (Part 2)
