FLC TV - September 9 Sermon - James 2: Demonstrating Faith By What We Do

James 2:14-20: What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.

Womens Bible Study Begins Sept. 21st

The New Testament Historical Books (Matthew – Acts)

These five books begin with the birth of Jesus Christ and conclude with the first imprisonment of the apostle Paul about six decades later. Within these books, God continues to reveal His sovereign plan. He moves the emphasis on the nation of Israel to an emphasis on the church, from a covenant of law to a covenant of grace, from His Holy Spirit coming upon people to actually indwelling them and from commanding Israel to live in such a way as to attract others to commanding the church to disperse throughout the world and make disciples of all nations. Sessions will be held on Friday mornings from 9-11 in the Fellowship Hall.  Cost for the member book is $13. Contact the church if you would like to participate.

FLC TV - August 26 Sermon - Isaiah 29: Does Your Heart Belong To God?

Isaiah 29:13-16: For you this whole vision is nothing but words sealed in a scroll. And if you give the scroll to someone who can read, and say, “Read this, please,” they will answer, “I can’t; it is sealed.” Or if you give the scroll to someone who cannot read, and say, “Read this, please,” they will answer, “I don’t know how to read.” The Lord says: “These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught. Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.” Woe to those who go to great depths to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their work in darkness and think, “Who sees us? Who will know?” You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, “You did not make me”? Can the pot say to the potter, “You know nothing”?

FLC TV - August 19 Sermon - Ephesians 5: Turning Knowledge Into Light

Ephesians 5:8-14: For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
