A Word for Jesus
We worship first and foremost by hungering and thirsting after God above all things. And we allow God to serve us, and to breath Himself into the deepest recesses of our hearts. Thus, “in true worship, we experience the presence of God, and it changes us, it shakes us to our core — the foundation of our being.” Joe Kidder
Scripture: Psalm 100, Psalm 22:3

Growing in Grace
The Bible calls us to Love. Love God and Love Others. At Mount Vernon Seventh-day Adventist church we have chosen to make this declaration our mission. But How? How do we grow in Christ to the place that we can authentically Love others? Peter challenges us to Grow in GRACE. (2 Pt 3:18) How? Through the illustration drawn from the story of a Flower we hope to see how looking steadfast at Jesus, helps us to grow and glow.

“Flower Story” used with permission from L Dennis Nutter, Thank you!
One of the hardest things that any of us can ever learn in life is how to forgive someone who has wronged us. For some of us, we have been carrying around the weight of something that happened years, maybe even decades, ago.
It is time to overcome that major hurdle and learn the gift of forgiveness. This presentation will look at what forgiveness is not, what forgiveness looks like, and the reasons why we should forgive. We will also learn some very practical steps that will be beneficial.
Scripture: Eph 4:31-32; 1 John 1:9; Luke 23:34; Rom 12:21; Matt 6:12; Matt 5:44-45; Rom 8:14; Matt 5:9; Phil 3:13; Matt 18:23-29

Lessons from the Life of Peter
2 Peter 3:10-11 challenges us to consider the time in which we are living and acknowledge that this earthly life will soon pass away. In awareness of this reality the question is postulated by Peter, “What type of lives should we be living?” Good question. Does Peter have any experience with this transformative question? Did Peter come face to face with himself and realize that he needed Jesus in order to live a life that reflected Jesus. Join us as we gather Lessons from the life of Peter
Scripture: 2 Peter 3:10-11; John 1:42; Matthew 16:18; Luke 22:31-32; Isaiah 1:18; Revelation 3:1-2; Ephesians 6:8; Mark 10:13-16

In our spiritual journey we often are confronted with the Lord asking us, “how long before you completely surrender your life to me. If I am truly God, then serve me. But if you have other “gods” in your life, I can’t really be your God fully.” I want to explore that question through the story of ancient Israel and their encounter with God on Mount Carmel.
Scripture: 1 Kings 18:19-40
