Pastor Alan Stover Matthew 14:22-33 When you find yourself in a STORM, when even hope becomes a blur, Jesus, in His own words, says, “Take courage! It is I.

Pastor Alan Stover John 11:25-26 The resurrection of Jesus Christ is more than just an event that happened once in history on Easter morning.

What did Jesus mean when He compared Himself with what Moses did long ago? What effect has the historical Moses event had on the world?

Pastor Alan Stover John 14:6 When we have a long journey ahead of us, many of us just Google our destination, look at our electronic map and get an idea of the roads we will travel to get there. We determine the best route then start our journey. Have you ever considered the best route in your journey of life? If we let the Bible take the place of our GPS, Jesus promises the way to an eternal destination with our Heavenly Father. The best route down the road of life is simply knowing and trusting in Jesus daily, even moment-by-moment. We can walk in faith that He is the way and the truth and the life. When we abide in Him, we may not know a defined course for our journey, but we can rest in the comfort of faith – that He will lead us exactly where we need to go.
