Breaking up the Fallow Ground

Ground that has not been worked in awhile becomes hard and has to be ploughed up before it can properly absorb moisture and be useful for growing crops. We need to allow God to break up the hardened ground of our hearts so that we can receive what God wants to pour out into us. Pastor Shayna continued the series on fasting and prayer Sunday morning this a message about fasting for breakthrough in our lives. Click on the arrow below to listen.

The family is one of God’s initial creations, and they are important to Him. They are also important to JCC. Pastor Caleb brought a wonderful message about the value of families and how we can help strengthen the family unit Sunday morning. Click on the arrow to listen to the message.

The Reason for the Season

We’ve pretty much all heard the “reason for the season” phrase. Generally it is used at Christmas time to remind people that we celebrate Christmas because it is Jesus’ birthday first and foremost. However, there is another holiday that is so secularized that we forget the literal reason for the season, and that is Easter. Or as many call it, Resurrection season. Jesus is the whole reason for that season. To deny that fact and leave it out of our celebrations denigrates the whole season to nothing more than a pagan holiday. Cute, colorful, fun, but without meaning or purpose. Pastor Shayna helps us turn our attention to the real reason for the upcoming Easter season: Jesus.

Psalms 91

Psalms 91 has been dubbed by some “God’s Insurance Policy”. Sunday’s message took an indepth look at this comforting psalm using a sort of adapted Lectio Devina method of studying scriptures. Click here to listen to the message. There are some places where there is no talking; it’s not a problem with the recording just so you know. You can join with the congregation in listening to what God may  have to say to you through the psalm.

Broken Dreams

Most of us have dreams that we’ve kinda just given up on. We have ceased to hope that they will be fulfilled. Many have had dreams that have come true only to die on the vine. God is the healer of broken hearts and the one who can resurrect those dreams that have died an untimely death. Sunday’s message by Pastor Shayna brings hope to those who have lived or are living through the experience of the death of a cherished dream. Click on the arrow below to listen to this message.

Face Forward

If you want to walk a straight line or plow a straight row it is dt-plowing-dimperative that you face forward and focus on an object ahead of you. As we sally forth into the  new year it is vital that we face forward and keep our eyes focused on Jesus as we walk this straight, narrow way. Click on the arrow to listen to Pastor Marlan’s message.
