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)


Unworthy Worship

July 22, 2018 Morning Service. In an age of declining church attendance and individualized spirituality, many today see worship services as an unnecessary burden. But what some will say is simply a progression in their faith is really a degradation in their relationship with God. Today Pastor John Friederich takes a look in the first chapter of Malachi and points out what leads to this kind of thinking and what we as believers need to be on the lookout for to prevent it. (Malachi 1:1-14)


Why Worry?

July 15, 2018 Morning Service. Worry. It%u2019s something we%u2019re all guilty of from time to time. Whether a day to day issue or something with life changing potential, we have a tendency to allow the circumstances to cause us anxiety and that can cause us a lot of issues. Today we explore some of Jesus%u2019 comments from His sermon on the mount and by exploring His Word, find some truths to consider and hold on to that make us realize that we have no reason to worry. . (Matthew 6:25-26)


The Wayward Son - The Joyous Return

July 1, 2018 Morning Service. This week we take a look at the second half of a message regarding the Prodigal Son. In recognizing his mistakes, the son acknowledges some key things that bring him to a point of repentance. The other side of this story reveals the attributes of a father, our Heavenly Father, that should encourage us to return when we find ourselves in a similar place as the son. (Luke 15:17-24)


The Wayward Son - The Departure

June 24, 2018 Morning Service. The story of the Prodigal Son is one of the most well known of all the Bible passages, even outside of Christianity. It is a wonderful story of redemption and forgiveness. But sometimes lost in focus on that part of the story, we miss the attitudes and mindsets of the the son that led to his poor decisions that parallel a Christian drifting from their faith. (Luke 15:11-24)


The Forgotten Father

June 17, 2018 Morning Service. In the Bible there are many examples of fathers. Some that demonstrate characteristics that we should emulate, some that we should avoid. There is a father that we know little about, that doesn't have a spoken word recorded in Scripture, that shows some admirable qualities. Today we explore how his actions are something to take notice of. (Matthew 1:18-25)


Preaching To The Dead

June 10, 2018 Morning Service. Have you ever felt like you had gotten so far from God that there was no way back? Where you felt there was simply no life left in you? This is where the nation Israel found themselves when God gave this message of prophesy to Ezekiel. But in the actions that God told Ezekiel to follow we see a plan for renewal. (Ezekiel 37:1-14)


Where Is Your Joy Unspeakable?

June 3, 2018 Morning Service. What are the things in life that make you happy? Chances are they are things that are temporary or fleeting and their effectivenss are likely dependent on your circumstances. God has provided for us ways to find joy through our connection to Him that are lasting and effective regardless of where we find ourselves in life. (1 Peter 1:3-8)


Of Sacrifices Then And Now

May 27, 2018 Morning Service. When John proclaimed Jesus as the 'Lamb of God' as He approached we often take the term somewhat lightly to simply mean He sacrificed Himself for our sins. But what we may miss is that Jesus in His selfless act went beyond just being the sacrifice. He fulfilled the requirements of the Old Testament for a sacrifice. (John 1:22-29)
