A Mighty Powerful Ministry | Luke 5:17-26

Pastor Ron continues his series on Jesus’ pastoral ministry with a look at His power that goes beyond physical healing. Discussion Questions 1. How might there be more evidence of the “power of the Lord” in our lives? (consult: Ephesians 3:16, 6:10 and 2Timothy 3:1-5) 2. How important is forgiveness of our sins to us? What evidence is there of its importance in our lives?

A New Command? | John 13:34-35

Alex DiBisceglie is a member of Cornerstone Congregational Church, and this is our first opportunity to hear him share a message for us. This message on Christ’s love comes from John 13:34-35. Discussion Questions Icebreaker Question:  What type of movies do you enjoy watching? In John 13:34-35, Jesus gives his disciples a new command to love one another. What makes this a new command?

Pastor Jonathan Romig’s Last Cornerstone Sermon | Deuteronomy 34:1-12 (Moses on Mt. Nebo)

Thank you for calling me to serve as your pastor these last seven years, nine years in the same ministry if you count my time at Immanuel. I love this church, and I love you, and I’m thankful God gave me you. As I was trying to figure out what I should preach for my last sermon, my mentor Sam Kim mentioned this passage. This chapter, the last chapter in Deuteronomy, is also the last chapter of Moses’ life and…

The Least Likely Disciple | Acts 9:1-19a

Who is the least likely person you know who would ever become a Christian? Take a moment and think of them. Is it a family member, a friend, a coworker? Is it because they’re apathetic to Christianity? Or is it because they’re totally against Christianity? Maybe they identify as an atheist, or Buddhist, Muslim, or even Jewish. All you know, is they’ll never follow Jesus… Nabeel fit the description of someone who would never follow Jesus. His parents were from…

CHRIST OVER COVID | Matthew 8:14-17

A plague hit Rome from 249 to 262 AD. This plague lasted 13 years. Our pandemic has been a week and a half and we’re already going crazy. Can you imagine what that was like? Historians have studied this plague and it was bad, real bad. I don’t want to describe it to you but if you look up the Plague of Cyprian you can read all the details. It killed about 5,000 people a day. The city of Alexandria…

This is…

The Certain Gospel: Three Life or Death Questions | Luke 9:18-27

Have you ever had to answer a question like your life depended on it? Maybe some of you have seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail. King Arthur and his men are on a quest to find the Holy Grail, and they come up to the Bridge of Death, where they “must answer three questions from the bridge-keeper to pass.” The bridge-keeper, an old hermit with a scraggly beard, asks the first knight, “What… is your name?” “Sir Lancelot of…

The King Foretold | Numbers 24:17

In Numbers 24:17, Balam prophecies to the king of Moab that “in the latter days” (v. 14), a king will come who will fight against the enemies of God. Balam gives two signs, that of the star, and that of the scepter. In his third oracle, in Numbers 24:9, Balam links the scepter with the sign of the lion. These two signs, that of the star and the lion, tell us Jesus is a king who both brings hope and…
