Ruth: God is Always Working for Good

Her first marriage shouldn't have happened.  She left her family & all she knew.  She lived in total poverty with her mother in-law.  She found love again.  She became the great-grandmother of Israel's greatest king, and an ancestor of the Savior of the World.

Every summer, Pastor Steve Van Winkle takes FBC and our summer visitors through a special passage of the Bible.  In 2015, we looked at the tumultuous life of Ruth.  Through her life, we can see that God is Always Working for Good.


God Seeks

One king's thirst for power causes him to lose everything and die in a desolate wasteland.  The other calls God his "refuge" and is blessed beyond measure.  The difference?  God.

In this two-part series, we look at the lives of King Saul and King David from an interesting set of perspectives:  God's rejection of Saul and calling of David.  Why did God do it this way?  Did David earn God's blessing?

Listen to this powerful series for the answer to these questions and more.


Easter & Worship

"He is risen!"  This sentence sums up our purpose and hope as believers.  It is the cornerstone of the gospel and the reason for our worship.

In the weeks leading up to Easter, we traced the final weeks and moments shared between Jesus and His followers.  While some abandoned and even betrayed Him, others took a different route.  They worshipped Him.  In this series, Pastor Steve guides us through these moments and challenges us to look in to their lives like a mirror.  Will we worship or abandon our Savior?


"NEVER" Series

"Never lick a frozen lamp post..."

There are things that we all know we should never do.  However, as believers, it's easy for us to fall in to old habits that keep us from enjoying all that God has for us in life.  This series tackles those issues without fear or holding back.  Through examples from scripture, Pastor Steve shares with us 4 things that Christians should "never" do if we want to live the full lives that God has for us.

Christmas Means...

"Maybe Christmas, perhaps...means a little bit more."
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas

There are lots of answers floating around about "What Christmas Means".  But, what does the Bible say, and what does it mean for us in the world today?  This 3-part series from December 2014 tackles just that.


A Thanksgiving Primer

Though this sermon series was intended for the holiday season, it's applications reach out to our hearts throughout the year.

Philemon: Runaway Grace

Philemon's story is one of betrayal, conviction, repentance, and ultimately redemption.

In this series, Pastor Steve Van Winkle took us through the book of Philemon through a unique but familiar lense: Grace.

Taken from the last few years (and growing as we add to it), this selection of sermons preached at FBC cover topics ranging from loving God, to marriage, and even heavy things like eternity & death.

This collection will grow over time, so be sure to check back for more!
