In today’s sermon, Pastor Wayne explores the third General Rule of the United Societies. The rule is “stay in love with God.” This rule calls us to practice the spiritual disciplines of prayer, fasting, Bible study, corporate worship, and participating in the Lord’s Supper. When we do this, we find the strength to live out the first two rules: “do no harm” and “do good.”
Pastor Wayne continues his look at the General Rules of the United Societies. This is a short series recovering our identity as Wesleyan Methodists. The rules are: Do no harm. Do good. Embrace the spiritual disciplines. Today, our focus is on the second rule to “do good.”
Join us as Pastor Wayne begins a series on Wesleyan theology starting with John Wesley’s General Rules of the United Societies. The rules are: Do no harm. Do good. Stay in love with God. We begin this week with rule #1: Do no harm.
Join us as Pastor Wayne shares about the 2019 Holston Annual Conference held at Lake Junaluska June 9-12. He teaches about the Church being the Church as found in Acts 2:36-47. (Apologies for the audio quality. We are working to fix this soon.)
The Spirit descends upon the disciples like the rush of a howling wind and the Church is born. What does that mean for us today? How are we to be the church in this time and place? Join us as Pastor Wayne explores this today.
Paul and Silas are annoyed by a fortune telling slave girl. Paul finally puts a stop to the annoyance by driving the unclean Spirit from her… and ends up in hot water because her owners weren’t happy about losing a sure source of income. Pastor Wayne explores what happens next.
Paul wasn’t expecting to go to Macedonia. He certainly wasn’t expecting to preach to a group of women gathered on the bank of the river. Yet, his efforts led to the conversion of Lydia’s household and the beginning of a fire for the Holy Spirit.
Have you ever heard the phrase, “We’ve never done it that way before?” Pastor Wayne explains that this deadly phrase has been around since the beginning of the Church as he shares the story of Peter’s report to the church leaders in Jerusalem who question him regarding the events in the home of Cornelius. Another sermon in the “Surprise! The Unexpected Acts of God” series as we cruise toward Pentecost.
What does it mean to imitate Christ? Pastor Wayne talks about that in his sermon today.
Easter 3C Scripture: Acts 9:1-20 Saul of Tarsus, a man sent to exterminate the followers of Jesus, encounters the risen Lord in a flash of blinding light. Ananias is sent by God to offer a healing touch and anoint him to become the greatest evangelist that the world has ever known. Have we known people who have changed our lives dramatically?
