2 Corinthians 6:1-13

Heritage Family, This Sunday we will be looking at 2 Corinthians 6:1-13. In our text for Sunday, we notice that Paul is once again defending his ministry. Here are a few of things to ponder for Sunday: 1) Are you aware there is a cost to sharing the Gospel? 2) What are some of those costs? 3) Lastly, how have you endured the cost of sharing the Gospel? I look forward to…

Resurrection Sunday

Church family, NEXT Sunday is Resurrection Sunday. We have planned a different time and place of our meeting on that day. Please see below for details: First, as we have often stated at Heritage Fellowship, we try to treat every┬áSunday as “Resurrection Sunday”, meaning that we celebrate the Risen Lord each time we gather, according to Scripture! Second, we…

2 Corinthians 5:16-21

Church family, Sunday, I’m preparing to preach on 2 Corinthians 5:16-21. The central thought of this passage seems to be v18. So take a look at that verse and chew on what that means to you personally. Then, take a look at the rest of the passage (both before and after that verse), and ask yourself “What do I gain as a result of what I read in v18?…

2 Corinthians 5:11-15

Church family, I am planning to preach on 2 Corinthians 5:11-15 this Sunday. Here are a couple of key thoughts for you… It seems to me that this passage is a part of a larger “theme” found in 2 Cor 5:10 – 2 Cor 6:2. It would be helpful to read the whole section. v11 – For what reason does Paul persuade others? v13 – Paul was basically…

Elder Installation

Church family, This coming Sunday, during what would normally be our “sermon time”, we will be officially installing Dave Jordan as an elder at Heritage Fellowship! Dave was unanimously affirmed by you to that position! So this Sunday, what I’d like to ask you to do, is simply: 1) Read the passages in 1 Timothy 3, and in Titus 1 dealing with elders. 2)…

2 Corinthians 5:1-10

Heritage Family, This Sunday we will be looking at 2 Corinthians 5:1-10. In conjuction with our passage for Sunday, please read 2 Corinthians 4:16-18. The Apostle Paul’s focus was on the eternal, where is your focus? I look forward to our time together on Sunday. Dave

2 Corinthians 4:13-18

Church family, The passage for this Sunday’s sermon is 2 Cor 4:13-18. The key verse in the whole passage is the second part of verse 16. Questions to ponder: Specifically, what is wasting away, and what is being renewed? Why does the wasting away happen? How does renewal happen? Look at v17, and what Paul describes as “light” (hint: the end of Ch 11…

2 Corinthians 4:7-12

Church family, First of all, thank you for your prayers and assistance this week. I’m planning to preach on 2 Corinthians 4:7-12 on Sunday. Here are a few brief considerations: Do you happen to have a plain clay pot (like a terracota planter) at the house that you’d be willing to bring Sunday? If so, just bring it with you Sunday. Having a couple of those (or…

Romans 12:1-2

Church family, As you’ll remember, in general our plan for preaching each month is this: I’ll preach twice, Dave Jordan would like to preach once, and the men will share one Sunday (not necessarily in this order each time. But with Dave and I, the question came up about what to do about 5th Sundays (4 of those in a year). Good question! Obviously one of us…
