Pastor Levi Matteson kicks off our new sermon series in our new facility at 900 West Memorial Rd. Campfire Stories with Jesus always have a point and purpose. We have the disadvantage of being separated from the culture of the stories by 2000 years, but Levi retells the story of a treasure buried in a field with imagery we can understand today. The message is from Matthew 13:44-46. This is a podcast of Evangel Community Church, Houghton, Michigan, November 10, 2019.
– Always a Life-Changing Point and Purpose -One of the best things about camping is the stories we tell. In this series, we’ll look at the short stories Jesus told. His parables always have a life-changing point and purpose.
Emotional bombs are forms of self-punishment in response to personal failure. Fear, comparison to others, shame, and holding onto our past can lead to mass destruction in our relationships with God and others. In the first part of the Weapons of Destruction sermon series, Levi encourages us to tell our whole story. Our story plus God's story is a great story, especially with a broken past. And we're all broken. The Scripture text as 2 Corinthians 12:8-10. This is a podcast from Evangel Church, September 13, 2015, Houghton, Michigan.
