What to Expect on Sunday Service
Our Worship Services begin every Sunday at 10:30am, and are usually over by noon. Before church begins, we offer coffee, tea, and refreshments in our community room. We begin our church service with some contemporary worship music played by our full band. Our team plays mostly modern worship music with some of the classics and hymns mixed in. Our congregation (or as we say… our Truth family) will make any newcomer feel welcome – right at home. There is a wonderful balance of church members of all ages. We have many young families with babies, toddlers and teens. And we have a large number of older members too. We begin our church service with everybody together in the sanctuary. About 25 minutes later, we dismiss our Sunday School children to their respective classes. Sunday School is separated into two classes. Kindergarten age and younger are in one class, while 1st through 5th graders go to another. For the adults, the sermon lessons are more educational in nature (Feel free to listed to an mp3 above for an example). We strongly believe in the importance of learning God’s Word and applying it to our lives. Please see our values and doctrinal beliefs on the home page for more information. And don’t hesitate to call and set up a time to meet with pastor Brian for any other questions.
In this Christmas teaching, Pastor Brian explains the 3 reasons why God had to come to the earth being fully man. 1) to fulfill scripture. 2) So He could be our Kinsman Redeemer. 3) Only man can fully redeem man. Since Jesus became fully man, He was able to die for us and satisfy God’s law for our sins. Click
The last of three lessons explains the meaning behind the Helmet of Salvation and the Sword of the Spirit. The helmet is the barrier between our transforming mind and the sinful world. The Sword is the Word of God. Even the devil is subject to the power of God’s words. We have access to that power. Click the play button
In part 2 of the Armor of God series, we study the footwear and the shield. The footwear was issued to allow Roman soldiers to advance in battle. The Gospel is what allows us to do the same. The shield of faith is our daily comfort that God sees the big picture. This shield works best when the whole church
Today we begin an important series about putting on the full armor of God. This is so important because we have an enemy who is always looking to keep us apart from God. We start by understanding the Belt of Truth and the Breastplate of Righteousness. Click the play button below to listen to this message.
We continue the theme of teamwork as we discuss the Battle that Moses was in with the Amalekites. The success of the Israelites in battle depended upon whether or not Moses lifted God high in the air. the same applies to us in ministry. Click the play button below to listen to this message.
We continue the Teamwork series by looking at what it means to use synergy. Synergy is when the combined effect is greater than the sum of the individual effect. This is the process that God gave us to grow the church. When we all come together and do our part as a team, then the church grows and people get
Seeing big spiritual changes happen usually looks overwhelming. Nehemiah shows us how to accomplish this by using teamwork. He used this approach to build the walls of Jerusalem in just 52 days. The secret to success was assigning small manageable sections to each family. If we apply this thinking to ministry, then we can effectively reach our community and grow
Part 4 of this series deals with the things King David sacrificed in order to prove God’s place in his heart. David sacrificed his time, his reputation, and his wealth for God.

Today’s teaching looks at the sinful trap that King David fell into with Bathsheba. Through these bad choices, David shows what it looks like to turn from sin and make things right with God. If you’ve ever thought you did too many bad things to be in heaven, this story shows God’s mercy when we have a genuine heart of
Part 2 of the series explains what God’s favor is and what David did to acquire it. God’s favor was shown in the story of David vs Goliath as well as the time David was hiding from Saul in En Gedi. If we do things God’s way then we’ll receive His favor in our lives. Click the play button below
This is the first in a series about the lessons we can learn from the life of King David. This teaching shows how God doesn’t measure our worth from any physical abilities. God looks at our heart. It was David’s heart that qualified him to have the eternal kingdom that Jesus would come through. Click the play button below to
We close the series out with the Festival of Tabernacles. This annual command for the Israelites was to remember how God provided for them while in the wilderness. It was during this festival that Jesus explained that He could offer rivers of living water to all who believe in Him. At Christ’s 2nd Advent, the Festival of Tabernacles will continue
The sixth festival of the year is the most important one of all. The Day of Atonement was the day the Israelites would see if God would accept them for another year by making atonement for their sins. This was so important because they relied on the Lord for security, food, water, and shelter. This festival was and continues to
The Feast of Trumpets is the first of the fall festivals. As the Jewish New Year, this day begins at the first sign of the new moon. Because of its unique beginning, it was known as the festival in which no one knows the day or the hour of its beginning. In this lesson, the case is made for this
This is the last of the four Spring Festivals. On this day, the Jews would begin by making two leavened loaves of bread and offering it to God to be accepted. The two (sinful) loaves represent the sinful Jews and gentiles being offered grace by God. On the day of Pentescost after Christ’s death, the baptism of the Holy Spirit
The third Spring Festival in Jewish culture is the firstfruits offering to God. This was done on the day after the Sabbath during the Unleavened Bread celebration week. Here, the Jews would take the first and best crops and offer it to God. This offering was a symbol of a future harvest that would come later. 2000 years ago, Jesus
This Festival was also fulfilled by Christ’s death. At the Last Supper, Jesus passed around unleavened bread and told His disciples it represented His body. Click the link and listen to find out how. Click the play button below to listen to this message.
This lesson opens up a series on Jewish festivals and how they point to the salvation of Jesus Christ. Passover was observed for over 1500 years when Christ died on that very day of the year. This showed the world how Jesus is the Passover Lamb who shed His blood so that death could pass over all who believe. Click
We close this series with a teaching on commitment. A true commitment is one where the person forfeits the freedom of doing anything other than staying committed. A Christian must start with a genuine commitment to God and His Word, then live life backwards from there. Click the play button below to listen to this message.
This teaching shows us how winners focus on winning and losers focus on winners. Cain killed his brother, Abel, because he didn’t want to give God his best but he didn’t want Abel’s sacrifice to make his look bad either. True believers in Christ take responsibility for their actions and move forward. Click the play button below to listen to
Part two of our series deals with honesty. Pastor Brian shares 3 keys to living an honest life. 1; Avoid using the “fine print”. 2; Protect people from the brutal truth when necessary. 3; Choose your daddy! Click the play button below to listen to this message.
This lesson is the beginning of a series about being an accurate Christian example to the people around us. One way we represent Christ is by showing compassion. In Luke 10, Jesus teaches us to love our neighbor. He then explains how our “neighbor” is anyone truly in need – not just someone with our same background. Click the play
