02/28/16 Heart of the Matter!

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, February 29, 2016, In : Sermon 

Are You That Witness Series – Matthew 13:1-9

Intro: The heart is a hard-working marvel. It can keep on beating automatically even if all other nerves were severed. And what a beat! It beats an average of 75 times a minute, forty million times a year, or two-and-a-half billion times in a life of 70 years. At each beat, the average adult heart discharges about four ounces of blood. This amounts to three thousand gallons a day or 650,000 gallons a year—enough to fill more than 81 tank cars...

02/21/16 One Greater Than!

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Sunday, February 21, 2016, In : Sermon 

Are You That Witness Series – Matthew 12:38-40

Intro: There are many signs in this world we are guilty of ignoring. With that said the stop sign seems to get a little more attention than other signs, most people stop for this sign. A lot of us tend to generally slow down and stop to avoid the repercussion of a ticket. Of course many of us after being pulled over try to explain to the officer that was a complete stop when they are giving us a ticket for not making a complete stop before we...

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Sunday, February 14, 2016, In : Sermon 

Are You That Witness Series – Matthew 11:28-30

Intro: Does the word "weary” ever describe your life? Do you ever feel like you have reached the end of your rope and there simply isn't enough rope left with which to tie a knot? These are the kinds of people Jesus is addressing in these verses. This chapter deals with the doubts of John the Baptist, the hypocrisy of the religious leaders, and the wickedness of the cities where Jesus had been preaching. He has been surrounded by those who ...

Are You that Witness Series - Matthew 9:35-38

Intro: The Barna Research Group has been involved in gathering and analyzing information concerning the church since 1984. They have found that 33% of Americans are unchurched; they have no church affiliation whatsoever. While it found that 20% of those who have church membership believe that living a good life will gain them a place in heaven. Given those two statistics alone, that tells us that 53% of Americans are lost and on their way to hell. ...

01/31/16 I Want to be Like the Centurion!

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, February 1, 2016, In : Sermon 

Are You That Witness Series – Matthew 8:5-13

Intro: When we think of a barrier we think of something physically enabling us from breaking through something. As a pastor I have experienced barriers from an entirely different perspective. I think of the barrier of pride, selfishness, laziness. With famous answer to those barriers: “I don’t have time,” I can’t do that,” "I don’t want to do that!"

“It is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must...

Are You That Witness Series – Matthew 7:12-14

Intro: In the early 80’s while living in Clayton, North Carolina I worked with the local utility Company; Carolina Power & Light (CP&L) which was located out of Raleigh. Interesting job, I got saved (accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior) during my third year of working for them. That sure changed things for my future with that occupation. I worked in the Relay Construction Department and worked my way up to a first class electrician a...

Are You That Witness Series – Matthew 5:17-20

Intro: In Illustrations for Biblical Preaching Timothy Munyon bids to ask the question’ is this a crazy rule or is it not. While living in Florida, I had several friends who worked cleaning rooms at a nationally known inn located directly on the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. They spent their work breaks running barefoot in the sand. The problem was the inn required all employees to wear shoes at all times while working. I noticed the em...

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, January 11, 2016, In : Sermon 

Are You That Witness Series – Matthew 6:9-13

Intro: This passage is often referred to as the Lord's Prayer. In reality, it is the Disciple's Prayer. It was given to them as a pattern for them to follow when they prayed. This model prayer has a pattern to follow; however, the disciple cannot allow this pattern to become so repetitious that it becomes a mindless repeat. This pattern can when properly follow be used as a framework to build a prayer life that is offered to God, heard and answ...

Are You That Witness Series - Matthew 5:1-11

What He delivers in this mountain experience message is a picture of heaven and He gives us all the pieces and...

Are You That Witness Series – Matthew 4:1-11

Intro: Every other week for a couple of years now I have had allergy shots, this of course is done to help me to deal with my allergies; at one time I was allergic to everything including couch roaches, so I was told. After every shot I have to wait 20 minutes to make sure I don’t swell, and the nurse tells me; whatever you do don’t scratch your arms, well you know what I do next? That’s right! “Scratch my arm’s” If you tell a yo...

Are You That Witness Series – Matthew 2:1-12

Intro: Over the years Karol and I have had are challenges with direction and reading maps when we go on a trip. Our first GPS was given to us as a gift from this church; mainly they feared that Karol and I would avoid a possible future argument when we travel. It is truly amazing the technology we have at our figure tips. The Wise men used a GPS long before modern technology did! God used a star to figure into the events surrounding the bir...

Posted by Pastor Steve Siegrist on Monday, December 14, 2015, In : Sermon 

Are You That Witness Series – Matthew 1:18-25

Intro: Jesus' birth was one of the most irregular and disturbing events in all history. There is this teenage girl who gets pregnant and wants everyone to believe that this child inside her womb was conceived by God Himself. Who of that day would ever believe her story? “And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins." Matthew 1:21. There is nothing that is normal here, but then...

Are You That Witness Series – Matthew 3:1-12

Intro: Let’s look at the big picture!

I love this time of the year, I enjoy giving and getting Christmas Cards. I love the social events that include singing Christmas Carols and eating cookies. I love to watch all the Hallmark movies on TV that share the spirit of Christmas. I love to give gifts and enjoy receiving them; however, I am not a big fan of that white elephant! It’s fun to decorate and prepare for the anniversary of the Savior f...
