Christmas Cheer

December 9, 2018 Morning Service. It was a chance encounter during a busy day at the temple. Or was it? Today we see two previously unmentioned individuals who were significantly impacted by coming into contact with the Savior. Pastor John Friederich uses these incidents to show us just how much our own contact with the Lord Jesus Christ can change us and its potential and actual impact on others. (Luke 2:25-38)


Mighty Motivation

December 2, 2018 Morning Service. Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ is both the greatest responsibility and greatest privilege that a Christian has. Yet it is one of if not the most neglected of our God-given responsibilities as believers. Today Pastor John Friederich looks in Paul%u2019s letter to Rome and by using the very words of the apostle regarding his desire to evangelize, shows us how we can stay motivated to share the good news. (Romans 1:13-18)


He Is Worthy

November 25, 2018 Morning Service. The book of Revelation teaches us about many events that are yet to happen in God%u2019s timeline for the world. But few of the prophesies are as exciting to the believer as what we read about in chapter 5. Today, Pastor John Friederich exposes for us the verses and meanings behind what the apostle John tells us about and explains why this is a moment that all believers can very much look forward to. (Revelation 5:1-14)


Let Us Give Thanks

November 18, 2018 Morning Service. As we enter in to the holiday season, we are all too easily caught up in the hustle and busyness of the time. And during this particular week, while we often consider how we are thankful for family and friends, we might be inclined to lose sight of the most fundamental of things that we should be thankful to God for. Pastor John Friederich today reminds us of some very simple yet significant things that we should consider when we express our thanks. (1...


Taming The Tempest

November 11, 2018 Morning Service. In the Garden of Gesthemane we are given insight into many aspects of Jesus%u2019 character, not the least of which is His response to challenging circumstances. As Jesus is faced with the task of bringing about the redemption of the world through enduring the wrath of God for sin, Pastor John Friederich shows us through the actions of our Savior how we too can face daunting times in our lives. (Matthew 26:36-46)


Not A Fan

November 4, 2018 Morning Service. In Luke chapter 9, Jesus challenges Peter with regard to how he perceived who He was. As with each of us, the totality of our perception of Jesus in large part defines what kind of a follower we are. But Jesus is very specific in this regard. Today, Pastor John Friederich helps us explore just exactly what kind of followers Jesus expects us to be by defining what kind He does not want. (Luke 9:18-21)


Only Jesus

October 28, 2018 Morning Service. When John the Baptist’s followers came to him concerned how the ministry of Jesus was growing beyond his, he had a powerful response for them regarding what really mattered. Today Pastor John Friederich takes this passage from the book of John and uses the insights given in the response to show us what should be the sum of our attitude regarding our ministries and our lives. (John 3:22-26)


Wielding The Sword

October 21, 2018 Morning Service. Many people look at the Bible as just another book. But the reality of it is that there is great power in the words that are spoken through it by God. Specifically, we see how Jesus has and will wield the power of His Word in the world we live in. Today Pastor John Friederich takes an instance from the 7th chapter of the book of John to lead us into a examination of just how powerful that Word is. (John 7:40-49)


What Grows From The Vine

October 14, 2018 Morning Service. Jesus told His disciples that they must abide in Him in order to be fruitful and to do the work of the Father. But what exactly does it mean to abide in Christ? Today Pastor John Friederich has us looking at Jesus%u2019 analogy of the vine in John chapter 15 in order to get a better understanding of what exactly it means to abide in Christ and how our connection to the True Vine impacts everything we do. (John 15:1-8)


Disciple Transformation

October 7, 2018 Morning Service. Before Jesus left the apostles to ascend to His rightful place on the throne of Heaven, He left His followers with a command to spread the Gospel and to make disciples. But the making of a disciple is not merely finding salvation in Christ but is also a further transformation of the person. Today Pastor John Friederich leads us from the book of Matthew into what areas that this transformation must occur. (Matthew 28:18-20)


Safe Harbor

September 30, 2018 Morning Service. When the storms of life come around it can be hard to find stability in the midst of the raging seas. Knowing we must weather the difficulties, we need an anchor to help ground us. Today Pastor John Friederich points us to Paul%u2019s predicament in the book of Acts and shows us that when we leverage our faith and look to His movement in our lives, we can actually find four such anchors. (Acts 27:21-29)


Identity Crisis

September 23, 2018 Morning Service. All throughout our lives we have a picture in our mind of who we think we are. There are many different things that can influence what that looks like and sometimes is even a projection of who we desire others to see us as. Today Pastor John Friederich takes Paul%u2019s statements regarding the new birth in 2 Corinthians and shows us that once we call upon Jesus as Lord, our identity is found in Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:16-18)


Fed Up With It

September 16, 2018 Morning Service. Due to Hurricane Florence, morning services at Providence Baptist Church were not held on September 16th. So for this week we are bringing a sermon from a while back for you from the book of Jeremiah entitled Fed Up With It where Pastor John Friederich discusses how to push through the difficulties we may face when trying to be obedient to the call of God in our lives. (Jeremiah 20:7-13)


Day by Day, Step by Step

September 9, 2018 Morning Service. One of the earmarks of successful, lasting relationship with someone is that a lot of time is spent together. We invest in the relationship by sharing our time and our energies. Today we start off looking at the provisional expression of God in Exodus and Pastor John Friederich uses this as a starting point to show us that our relationship with God is one that is meant to be experienced every moment of our day. (Exodus 16:3-8)


Oh That Amazing Grace

September 2, 2018 Morning Service. Amazing Grace is easily one of the most recognizable and well know of all church hymns. But how often have we who sing it on so many Sundays stopped to genuinely consider just how amazing the incredible grace of God is? Today we find ourselves in the book of Matthew where Pastor John Friederich takes us into the parable of the workers in the vineyard to explore the depths of God%u2019s grace and how truly amazing it really is. (Matthew 20:1-15)


Spiritual Pushback

August 26, 2018 Morning Service. One of the privileges of the Christian life is that we are called to serve a wonderful, loving God and the roles that He calls us into are a part of His unique plan for each of us. However, this sometimes requires us to step out in faith into areas where we feel like we may be in over our head. Today Pastor John Friederich takes us into the book of Judges to see an example of what happens when our flesh gets in the way of absolute obedience and what the...


A Life Of Redirection

August 19, 2018 Morning Service. It can be hard sometimes when we feel we have suffered some form of injustice. Watching the news nowadays this can seem like it is becoming a more frequent occurrence for Christians. But how do we deal with this? Pastor John Friederich takes us today to 1 Peter to find what some might consider surprising truths about our response and some important truths that God wants us to remember. (1 Peter 3:8-18)


The Path To Success

August 12, 2018 Morning Service. When someone mentions success, what does that mean to you? For most that will invoke the idea of fame and fortune. But the reality of those things is that none of it will matter much after your life has ended. Today Pastor John Friederich looks at the words of Paul to understand what it really means to be successful, and the Christ-centered path that it takes to get there. (2 Corinthians 3:1-3)


God's Humble Love

August 5, 2018 Morning Service. We often hear a lot of talk about God’s love and while this particular attribute is a huge part of who He is, we often neglect to realize just how significant His feelings toward us are. Today Pastor John Friederich uses Romans 8 as a springboard into exploring the incredible nature of God%u2019s love for His creation and just how truly humble and humbling that love is. (Romans 8:37-39)


Get To Know The Cross

July 29, 2018 Morning Service. It’s a symbol that causes controversy for some but gives comfort and hope for others at the same time. It’s the cross of Jesus Christ. The cross means many different things to people but ultimately has the power to change lives. So how do we really understand the meaning and the impact of the cross? Today Pastor John Friederich takes us into John chapter 12 and by taking a look at the words of Jesus, helps us to get to know the cross. (John 12:20-32)
