Summer Sermon Series: Who Do You Say I Am?

Jesus once asked his disciples “Who do you say I am?” They had heard reports of what others thought about Jesus. But Jesus wanted to know what they believed about him.

The answer to that question reveals a lot about your faith.

Like the disciples, we may hear rumors or reports from others about Jesus. But we must not take our cues from culture or any other preconceived notions we have about Jesus. Our answer must be rooted in Scripture.

This summer, we are going to study how the Bible answers Jesus’ question and how the answer impacts our faith.

Armor of God

Armor of God Bible Study by Pricilla Shirer

Ladies! Maria Lammers and Tory Breitigan will be leading Pricilla Schrier’s Armor of God bible study on Wednesday evenings starting on June 15th at 7 pm. 

“All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed.  If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you. The enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. The Armor of God, more than merely a biblical description of the believer’s inventory, is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory.”

You’re invited to join us every Wednesday night in the Ministry Center for this study!  Workbooks are available for purchase for $17.

Please sign up at the Info Center by June 1st. Contact Maria Lammers at or Tory Breitigan at with any questions.

May Sermon Series: Attributes of God

During the month of May, the sermons will focus on some of the attributes of God. I say “some” because God is too great, too glorious, too wonderful to cover in a few sermons. The goal, however, is to grow in our knowledge of God.

We need to know who God is so that we can love him and worship him as he deserves. Author and Bible teacher Jen Wilken says, “Your heart cannot love what your mind does not know.” Let’s study God’s attributes so that we can proclaim together “How great is our God!”

Sermon Series: Living Faithfully in a Fallen World

Peter wrote his first letter to Christians who were scattered throughout the Roman Empire. He encouraged them to live faithfully in the face of persecution, hardship, and suffering. In many ways, the lessons that Peter shared with those believers apply to us today. Our commitment to follow Christ may put us at odds with the prevailing direction of our culture.

Join us on Sunday mornings as we study 1 Peter and discover how to live faithfully in a fallen world.

Faith Statement Sermon Series & Small Groups

Ask The Pastor

Questions sometimes arise as you are listening to the sermon on Sunday mornings or reading a passage in the Bible.

  • What did Pastor Joel mean when he said that?
  • How does this message apply to my life?
  • What other Scripture passages support the main idea of the sermon?

Now you can “Ask the Pastor” by calling or texting (419) 405-FCNK [3265].

Leave a voice message or text for Pastor Joel and he will answer your questions regarding his teaching and preaching.

He may respond to you directly, or answer questions on his blog or a Facebook Live post. We hope this will be a great way for you to continue to interact with the sermon and deepen your understanding of God’s Word!

You can also submit a question or prayer request via our Contact Us page.
