In this Sunday sermon (June 9th, 2019), Pastor Kelly Boyd preaches on the understanding that in God's kingdom every member is a minister. In reference to 1 Peter scripture on God's people (believers and followers of Christ) being a "holy priesthood" meant to help build on His kingdom, along with his (Kelly's) recent road trip with his son during which they attended a sister church in Flagstaff, Arizona, in which a sign was mounted that reads: "every member a minister", Kelly's sermon focuses on the understanding that God calls all of us, regardless of careers, relationships, family dynamics, etc. to a one-hundred percent committed life with Him, in which we seek His will and way over our own in everything we are called to do; and that in doing so we may encourage others to do the same.
Continuing on the topics from last week's service, in this Sunday sermon (June 2, 2019), brother Daniel Lauterbach discusses preaching the gospel, referencing the speaking of tongues in the book of Acts, among other scriptures, in order to emphasize the need as disciples of Christ to always be prioritizing first and foremost the sharing of the Message of Reconciliation (gospel) to all, whether Jew or Gentile, and understanding that by Jesus' sacrifice our Heavenly Father sees our sins as paid, and not merely as acts of immediate condemnation.
In this participatory Sunday sermon (May 26th, 2019), brother Daniel Lauterbach conducts a visual representation of the paralyzed man being brought to Jesus in Mark 2, as part of his discussion on Evangelism and Discipleship, essentially the need to not grow to be too comfortable with where we are ever currently at with life, but rather to choose to challenge ourselves to persevere evermore in our faith in our heavenly Father, helping to bring more people to that same faith (evangelism), while still rebuking and admonishing one another to grow in it (discipleship), through our continuous sharing of the Message of Reconciliation: the Gospel.
In this Sunday sermon (May 19th, 2019), Pastor Kelly Boyd preaches on the authority of God's word in our lives: The fact that he created the universe, the relationships he wants us to have with Him and one another, and the balancing act we all face between instinctually living for ourselves and living by God's will; and in discussing these points, this sermon covers topics such as facing our pet sins and choosing to get back up when they try to claim us, being more open to sharing about these sins and seeking forgiveness and, in effect, making ourselves right with God when we stumble.

In this Sunday sermon (May 5th, 2019), Pastor Kelly Boyd preaches on living by God's full, true, spiritual definition of love, rather than by the more minimalistic definitions of love we more instinctually tend to want to live by (ie. lusts, self-desire, etc.), based on our basic, human instincts; and that by doing so, we instead live as ambassadors of Christ, loving and building up one another as Jesus did during his walk on this earth, so that we may seek a relationship with Him that is eternal over what is only temporary in this flesh and blood reality.
In this small, house church style congregational Sunday sermon, brother Todd Porter preaches on his lessons in learning of God's Grace and how we, as disciples and followers of Christ, seek to not only understand it, but also live by it, in conjunction with our efforts to serve one another and be fruitful with the life dynamics God provides for all of us as neighbors, brothers, sisters, supporters, fathers, mothers, care providers, and so on.
In this Easter Sunday sermon, Pastor Kelly Boyd discusses Jesus' death and resurrection, highlighting how we, as disciples of Christ, live out the resurrection daily in how we choose to live for Him and one another, in of our free will, rather than by simply following our own self-conceived desires of the heart alone.
In this conclusion to the Life to the Full Sermon Mini Series, Brother Daniel Lauterbach discusses the Parable of the Shrewd Manager in Luke Chapter 16 and how, rather than seeking worldly wealth for personal gain and appealing to vein human interests, we, as disciples, are called to utilize our wealth in this life to help build up the Kingdom: reaching out to others, developing relationships, and bringing each other closer to God.

In this Sunday sermon (March 31st, 2019), pastor Kelly Boyd deeply discusses the existential nature of God's message in of how, in the book of Jeremiah, the allegory of the Potter's House refers to the understanding that we are like hand-crafted pottery, each uniquely shaped at birth and re-shaped throughout life to serve His will in of our own free will, if and when we choose to seek Him with all of our being.
