A Touching Faith

December 1, 2019 Morning Service. In our journey to come to know the Lord Jesus, there are a number of things that we can do and not do that indicate the level of our sincerity and commitment.

Reason To Give Thanks

November 24, 2019 Morning Service. During this time of the year, many people take a moment around our family gatherings to reflect on all that we are thankful for. But most times when we do so we find ourselves focused just on the material blessings we enjoy in this world. In this week's sermon, Pastor John Friederich takes a joy filled Psalm of thanksgiving to show us that our basket of blessing overflows when we look only to God Himself. Let's join in as Pastor Friederich preaches a sermon...


Seeking The Source

November 17, 2019 Morning Service. There are many Christians who find themselves in a tidal relationship with the Lord. They find that their relationship is strong in the high tides of good fortune but not so much in the low tides of difficulty, struggle or trials.

We Should Be

It's Not About You

October 27, 2019 Morning Service. We live in a world where our choices are dominated by how WE benefit from things.

The Coming Storm

October 20, 2019 Morning Service. If you keep up with events that are occurring across our nation, it is clear that the religious freedoms that we have enjoyed for over 200 years are now being threatened.

In this weeks sermon, Pastor John Friederich takes the apostles' reaction to the persecution they faced as a model for our actions as well. (Acts 4:23-31)


A Heart Of Rebellion

October 13, 2019 Morning Service. When Cain brought his sacrifice to God, he was pleased to offer to God the fruits of the work of his hands and surely because of this, he thought God would accept it.

Pastor Friederich was guest preaching at another church today so we are bringing you a Sunday night sermon preached at Providence Baptist Church from earlier this year entitled A Heart Of Rebellion from...


The Snake Charmer

The Contradiction Of The Cross

September 22, 2019 Morning Service. There are many people who say that the Bible is full of contradictions. But what some call contradiction is really a paradox.

Preparing For His Way

September 1, 2019 Morning Service. One of the most important things that a believer can do to walk in obedience to God is to follow His will for their life.

Get To Know The Cross

August 25, 2019 Morning Service. Throughout all of human history, never has there been an event more pivotal than what happened on a place called Golgotha nearly 2000 years ago.

True Peace

August 18, 2019 Morning Service. Peace. It's something everybody wants, yet so many seem to be unable to find it in the world we live in today.

Let's Talk About God

August 11, 2019 Morning Service.

Peter's Rebuke

August 4, 2019 Morning Service. Throughout Jesus' early ministry, He often made reference to His forthcoming suffering and death.

Tower Of Trouble

July 28, 2019 Morning Service. After the great flood of the Bible, God commanded the people in Noah’s family to go forth and replenish the earth.

The Two Whosoevers

July 14, 2019 Morning Service. John 3:16 is arguably the most well known of all the verses of the Bible. It tells us that whosoever believes in Jesus will find eternal life.

Revolutionary Thinking

July 7, 2019 Morning Service. More and more it seems today that those who are running for political office are distancing themselves from Biblical values.

Let Freedom Ring

June 30, 2019 Morning Service. This week as we celebrate the independence of our country with barbecues and fireworks, we look back at what has made our nation what it is today and one of those things is freedom.

Today Pastor John Friederich looks at some freedoms that result from faith in Jesus Christ and they are reason to celebrate as well. (Galatians 5:1-6)
