The Words of the Prophet

Fear Not!

With the tensions in the mid-east rising, with so many unstable countries now equipped with nuclear weapons, with hatred and animosity growing among so many cultures, how much longer can our world go on before a cataclysmic event brings incredible destruction upon us? With so many people obsessed with AMC's zombie apocalypse, The Walking Dead, are we heading for a real apocalypse--the End of Days prophesied by Old and New Testament writers? If so, what does Jesus have to say about it? Check out our worship videos for Christ the King Sunday:

God Is Good

Where in the New Testament did Jesus say, "God is good?" Okay, he didn't use those exact words. He said, "No one is good except God alone." Most of us agree with him . . . until tragedies strike or times of difficulty arise. Then like Job, we struggle with those words as we try to maintain our faith. Despite our circumstances, God does not change. God is still good, compassionate and overflowing with love. Check out this week's worship videos from the Colerain Presbyterian Church:

Why Me Lord?

In 1973 Kris Kristofferson's poignant ballad, Why Me Lord?, hit #1 on the country charts. People had a hard time believing this hard-living man wrote such a spiritual song. David in Psalm 8 asks a similar question: What is man that you care about him? Today we will look into the answers to these important questions. Check out our worship videos below:

Unleashing the Power of Prayer

Why is it when some people pray God moves with power to answer their prayer--people are healed, problems are solved, lives are turned around? Today we will investigate a prayer of Moses and the wisdom of James to discover what unleashes the power of prayer.

The Road Less Traveled

Robert Frost's poem, The Road Not Taken, is one of the most beloved poems in American literature. The Scriptures often talk about two paths from which we must choose--the wide road that leads to destruction or the narrow path that leads to life. The narrow path of God's will is much more demanding and challenging, but it is the path of greater fulfillment and blessing. Check out today's videos from the Colerain Presbyterian Church:
