Resurrection Sunday

Posted by ccnh on 31st March 2013

Acts 10

In this passage we see that the gospel invited those who were far from God to come near to Him.  God's purpose is still the same today.  Jesus is the only way, and His resurrection offers new life to everyone who will receive it.

Who Do You Say I Am? - Part 1

Posted by ccnh on 24th March 2013

Matthew 21

During Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem the crowds shouted "Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord."  Days later some of those same people would should "Crucify Him!"  What happens when God, or your expectations of God, disappoints? The times in life when we really expect Jesus to show up, or answer, or be present and He doesn't do it the way that makes all the logical sense in the world. Been on a thousand job interviews. Heard a bad diagnosis after months of treatment. Watched the marriage decay for years of prayer. You get the idea. How do we continue to sing Hosannas when we just ain't seeing or feeling it?

Bible Study Methods - Biographical/Topical

Posted by ccnh on 3rd March 2013

Matthew 26, 1 Corinthians 11

In this week's message we explore the method of studying a particular topic or person in the scriptures using the Lord's Supper as an example.  One of the tools that is helpful for this method is a concordance (there are book and online versions of these available).
