Matthew's view of

the passion week

From the triumphal entry to the pain of the cross, this overview of the final week before the

crucifixion gives us an understanding that Jesus wasn't helplessly caught in a political or religious squabble. He was the substitute for sinners, Who died to save those who do not deserve His grace.


thinking through the resurrection

Mary came to the tomb only to find it empty.  What happened next changed everything.

She saw the risen Christ!  On this Easter Sunday, Flemings Chapel celebrated the resurrection through a special musical presentation and a look at John 20 and Matthew 28.


Don't forget about the resurrection

In John 21, the resurrected Christ appears to the disciples who have gone fishing. His interaction with

Peter is an evidence of forgiveness.  Sometimes in life, we tend to go back to "normal" instead of living in light of the resurrection. This message calls each believer to constantly live in the reality of the resurrection.


biblical counsel for families

On the day when we had the joy of dedicating five beautiful children to the Lord, we looked into two passages for guidance on how to live.  In both Deuteronomy 6:4-7 and Colossians 3:16-17, the principle is the same: Obedience flows out of worship.  May God help these families who dedicated their little ones . . . and all of us to walk in obedience because we want to honor the Lord in worship.

Do not lose heart

The Apostle Paul three times used the phrase "do not lose heart" to speak about the Christian life. In this message Pastor David reminds us that we are to continue to trust God while being faithful, and leaving the results to Him.


Trusting the lord in 2023

In a memorable passage from the book of Proverbs, the writer encourages us to put all our confidence in the

Lord and not ourselves. As we begin a new year, we lean into His wisdom. We trust His character, and we rely on

God to make the way for us in the 365 days ahead.


Christmas service

Why did Jesus come to earth? In this heartfelt message, we are reminded of His great

love and sacrifice that brought Jesus from heaven to earth.


Good new of great joy

Good news of great joy! That's what the announcement of Jesus coming to earth truly was.

God came to our rescue. Jesus came to be our Savior. The tiny baby in the manger was

sent to be our Savior.


The word became flesh

In this message from the first chapter of the gospel of John we see that Jesus, the Creator, was willing to humble Himself and become part of this world.  He came to fulfill the promise of God to send a Savior.  He came to perfectly show us what God is like.


What Do you do while you're waiting

In this final message from Pastor David's series "Reminders for Righteous Living," we are encouraged to trust the Lord even

when things don't look grim.  God is honored by our faith. Obedience and trust are our offering of faith in God's character.


seeing god through problems


Thinking thankfully

There is so much we have to be thankful for that making a list would be impossible. 

A special part of this service was the dedication of two precious little girls.

In the message, we were reminded that God deserves our thanksgiving because it is a part of worship.


Ready for spiritual battle

Every believer lives on the battleground of conflict against spiritual; forces of evil. 

But, we are not helpless in the battle. God has given us the armor needed to wage

war against the forces of darkness.  From Ephesians 6:10-18, Pastor David described

how we can be prepared for victory.


how do you live for jesus?

Many who have come to Christ struggle with how they can be able to live for Him.  

Colossians 2:6-7 answers that question. Live by faith in Christ, grounded in the

truth found about Him in the Scripture.  This message will encourage you to grow

in your faith by putting down roots into the soil of the truth, God's Word. 


Being Salt and light

Matthew 5:13-16 gives two easy to understand illustrations of what a believer's life should be.

Salt and light convey such vivid pictures in the text and in our daily lives. Pastor David explains

how the job of the church is to continue being salt and light in our society.

Great is thy faithfulness

Pastor Erc Kincaid, who grew up at Flemings Chapel. was our special speaker on August 21, 2022. His message, from Lamentations 3, was an encouragement to find hope in the Lord Who is always faithful.  Pastor Eric reminded us that despite the circumstances of life, Jeremiah was able to see that the covenant keeping God is worthy of our trust and confidence.

"For a Believer, it's Always time to take out the trash."

In our worship service we had the privilege of looking into God's Word to see the qualities that ought to be a part of a believer's life.  Our study in Colossians 3 showed us the difference between a person who lives for Jesus compared to those who don't.

Prior to the sermon, we had the joy of approving Thomas Smith as our new Associate Pastor for Student Ministries.

Remember the Sacrifice

Taking a look into Romans 5:1-8, we see how the sacrifice of Jesus not only makes possible our right standing with God, but it introduces us to the grace in which we live. The sacrifice of Christ for us not only enables our forgiveness, but it should enliven our commitment to service and sacrifice for the glory of God.

March 28, 2021

Palm Sunday

We celebrate the joyous triumphal entry, but quickly find that Jesus' ultimate reason for coming. . .  to go to the cross, demonstrates His love.  Looking at the three crosses at Golgotha, we see three different aspects.  Travel with us to Calvary and see the love of Christ poured out for sinners.

The story of redemption is complete. Boaz takes Ruth to be his wife. The picture painted in chapter 4 is of one who was willing to pay the price.

The Book of Ruth: Chapter 3

Naomi encouraged Ruth to find a kinsman-redeemer who would bring security and rest to her life.

Lessons from the Wise Men

The Gospel of Matthew, chapter 2, tells us that wise men saw the star that led them to Bethlehem, and there they worshipped.

The Response  to Jesus

Two amazing responses to Jesus came when Mary and Joseph went to dedicate Him in the Temple. Luke 2:21-38 tells the story of the response to Christ that honored Him long ago. Simeon and Anna provide an example of how we should welcome Him still.

A Call to Worship

Psalm 96 gives a call to worship. It tells us that our we should sing to God to heap glory on His name. We should give to God to worship with open hands. And we should remember that that He will set all things in order because He is the One Who judges righteously. Prepare your heart for Thanksgiving and worship through this significant psalm.

Are You Thankful?

The story is familiar. The ten lepers were healed, and only one stopped to say thank you in praise for what Jesus had done for him. Are you in the ten percent? Are you grateful for the work of God in your life? Like the leper, we all have a disease (sin) that is deadly, and we can do nothing about it apart from Christ. Have you accepted His healing work of the cross and empty tomb. Have you thanked Him lately for His grace to care for you?  Luke 17,11-19 tells the powerful story!

Lessons from Haggai

The circumstances in Jerusalem in 520 BC were tough, like today. The people were distracted by all the hardship . . . like today.

Finding Forgiveness and Purpose

After His resurrection, Jesus met several disciples by the shore of the Sea of Galilee.  For Peter, it was a chance to renew His love and dedication to the Lord.  Jesus meets us in our circumstances, forgives us of our failures, and calls us to obedience in the days that lie ahead.
