If you were with us last Sunday you will remember that we talked about hope and the fact that we need hope in our lives, we need hope in our world now more than ever. Perhaps you remember that we tried to make a clear distinction between using…

Hope: More Than Wishful Thinking

Hope: More Than Wishful Thinking Isaiah 40: 21-31 December 1, 2019 Fog – Have you ever observed it from your front door? Have you ever walked in it? Have you ever driven your car through it? The other night I was watching the weather report on KDKA with Ray Petlin and he turned his attention to the existing fog at that time. Instead of saying what the temperature was in Cranberry, in Moon Township, in Bethel Park and downtown Pittsburgh,…

How Good is God?

How Good is God? Psalm 100:5 November 17 and 24, 2019 Pastor David Streets If you are a parent, there was a moment in your life when you taught your child a deeply profound truth about God. (If you are not a parent, it happened in your life when you were a child).

PARTNERING WITH GOD

PARTNERING WITH GOD II Corinthians 9:6-15 October 27, 2019 Pastor David Streets Good Morning Church! Welcome to week number four in our series of messages about generosity. We have been talking about generosity all month long. Do you remember last week I told you a story told by Henry Blackaby in his Experiencing God study?

The Grace of Giving

The Grace of Giving II Corinthians 8:1-5 October 20, 2019 Pastor David Streets Welcome to week #3 of our 4 part series on generosity.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?

WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME? Malachi 3:6-12 October 13, 2019 Pastor E. David Streets Good morning church and welcome back. We are in the midst of a series of messages about generosity. Generosity is about sharing our resources and sharing our lives with others. Are you a generous person?

SEEING BEYOND OURSELVES

SEEING BEYOND OURSELVES Mark 12:41-44 October 6, 2019 Pastor E. David Streets Are you an easy mark with a soft heart? Are you one of those people who quickly gives when someone asks? Perhaps it’s the Girl Scouts selling cookies or the Boy Scouts selling popcorn. Or maybe it’s an athletic booster’s club from the local high school. They call your phone. You answer even though you don’t know the number. And they ask you if they can count on…

An Essential Taken For Granted

An Essential Taken For Granted Exodus 17:1-7 September 8 and 15, 2019 Pastor E. David Streets Have you ever been thirsty? Exactly how thirsty? In September of 2013, after I had my second surgery in 5 days, this time an emergency surgery, I had a nasogastric tube that went through my nose into my stomach. Affectionately known as an ng tube, this device sucked secretions and fluids out of my stomach so that my colon could heal. Have you ever…

Have You Lost Your Zeal?

HAVE YOU LOST YOUR ZEAL? Scripture: I Peter 3:8-16 February 17, and 24, 2019 I’d like to begin today by asking you to remember your first time; that is, the very first time something happened in your life, the first time you did something all by yourself, the first time you achieved something great. It should be something significant. Can you remember the day you were born? No, neither can I but I can remember the day I learned how…
