New Years 2019

I’m excited about what God has been teaching me about the coming year 2019 to share at Ogden Church on Sunday, December 30th. Moses gave some pretty great instruction to the Israelites for their New Year that applies to us for our New Year! Come ready to worship in song and Word! And share communion together to get us ready for a Happy New Year! - - Pastor John

With Us - Week 3

When we are faced with difficulty it is easy for us to wonder where God is, or feel like he couldn't possibly understand what we're going through. However one of the beauties of Christmas is understanding that the God we worship is someone who is With Us in our suffering. This week we will at Isaiah 53 and see that far from being indifferent in your suffering God can relate for Jesus was sent to suffer for us.

With Us - Week 1

Really good news is something you can't help but share! And during the Christmas season we have the best news of all: that God came to be with us to save us from the sin we are stuck in... and that's a message worth sharing! As we begin the With Us Series we look at the shepherds and how the good news of Christmas was observed, confirmed, and shared. 

Great - Full Pt2

“I’m Full!”

This quote spoken by so many of us after the huge Thanksgiving meal we ate last week… yet we still ate even more. King David had this same “I’m Full” attitude when he penned Psalm 145. It started with his recognition of God’s greatness “Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised and his greatness is unsearchable” (Psalm 145:3) but then ended with his clear expression of just how full God had made him. Pastor John shares “15 Reasons why I am Full” based on verses 13-21. See how full you are!

Great - Full Pt 1

I don’t believe we mean to do it, but we often approach Thanksgiving and forget it’s meaning. We inadvertently become grateful for the Turkey, or stuffing, pumpkin pie, or cranberry sauce, (maybe even the lions game) when we should be thankful for a Great God who has provided for us. King David recognized misplaced attention from God and wrote a song (Psalm 145) to help him and others to boast, to focus, to inspire, and to perspire that “GREAT is the LORD and GREATLY to be PRAISED”! Pastor John walks us through Psalm 145 to help us see just how to make THANKSGIVING GREAT AGAIN!

The Great Test pt1

Sometimes when we understand God’s great love for us  it is hard to know how to love God back.  Pastor John shares the unique perspective that Jesus reinforced as the greatest commandment of “Loving God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength” in order to pass “The Great Test.”  Will you pass the test????

Jonah & The City pt 4

The fourth and final week of working our way through the book of Jonah is focused on how we decide what is right?  We often get wrapped up, just like Jonah, and ask two questions:  Do I agree and Am I comfortable?  Are these the right questions to ask or not?  Listen in as we explore Jonah chapter 4.
