Study of James #4: The Danger of Stranger Danger--James 2:1-12

Our brains tell us a lot of things, things that help us stay alive. Things that help us determine if something is dangerous or unsafe. What about people that we don’t know? Are they strangers? Are they dangerous? Jesse Jakubiak gave this sermon on October 7, 2018.

This recording has some persistent buzzing. We were unable to remove the buzzing without removing portions of words.

Seeking Those Things That Are Excellent--Philippians 4

Guest speaker Bill McLaughlin gave this message on August 19, 2018. As Christians, we face many choices. We need to choose the excellent ones in our morals (ethical choices), our homes, our relationships with others.

The recording has a lot of dropouts in the first 19 minutes. Switching the microphones at that point helped minimize them.

What Should I Do?--Romans 12:9-21

How do we become prepared for something? Often we practice, or do drills. That is how we prepared for Christian life as well. We need to be prepared, to have a plan, for things that may come our way. How do we use the principles of the Bible to do this? John McDonald gave this sermon on July 29, 2018.

There was quite a bit of audience participation starting about 22:40 and continuing thru to the end of the lesson. Parts that were inaudible were deleted.
