Prior to our Vacation Bible School, Luke Harriman shared this message on the particular teaching method of telling parables. After a brief overall discussion, he focused on Jeremiah's object lesson at the house of the potter as an example of God's parabolic teaching.
Luke Harriman began a series of messages reviewing the 15 psalms that bear the title, "A Song of Ascents." After discussing a pattern that emerges in these psalms—in which the psalmist moves from distress, through dependence, to delight—Brother Luke traces this pattern through Psalms 120, 121, and 122.

During his week-long visit to South Florida, Brother Carlton Jones brought a stirring message at our Thursday night meeting, encouraging us to echo the words of Saul of Tarsus to the resurrected Jesus of Nazareth: "Lord, what do you want me to do?" Considering the examples of several spiritual seekers in Scripture, Brother Carlton challenges us to not merely be hearers of the Word, but doers also.
Recently returned to us from Jamaica, Brother Laurel Smalling shared this message from Psalm 103, encouraging us to bless the Lord. Truly, there are many reasons we should bless His holy name—let us not forget His benefits!
During a visit from the Brooksville Assembly, Brother Viv John shared this message about the Lord's feeding of the 5000 in the Gospel of Mark.

Brother Collin Beckford encouraged us from the story of Joshua and Psalm 27 to realize the courage we should have in the Lord. We can truly say, "The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" (Ps 27:1). After this, Brother Luke Harriman spoke briefly from the story of Deborah about the role mothers have in literally en-couraging their children to trust in God and not be afraid.

Brother Gordon Bennett delivered this message from the book of Jude at the Thursday night meeting, encouraging us to keep ourselves in the love of God.
Brother Ken Huebner took us to seven places in Psalm 119 where the psalmist mentions affliction or being afflicted. In each one, we find encouragement to turn to God's Word in the midst of our struggles, and Brother Ken reminded us of the many reasons the people of God might face affliction -- even when we aren't committing some grievous sin.
Luke Harriman returned to the topic from a few weeks ago, considering what we learn from various celebrations of Passover about our worship in the breaking of the bread. Where the focus in the previous message was Hezekiah's Passover celebration, here Brother Luke looks at three more instances. We see in the Passover feasts of Josiah, the returned exiles in Ezra, and the Jewish leaders of Jesus's day how our worship can serve as an opportunity for consecration, celebration, and circumspection.
Brothers Collin Beckford and Ken Huebner shared the pulpit last Sunday with Brother Collin offering a modern-day parable of salvation in the picture of a bus to heaven driven by the Lord Himself. While many seem to prefer attempting to drive their own vehicles there, only He knows and is the Way. Brother Ken followed up with encouragement from Proverbs 24 to seek the wisdom of God as we walk the pilgrim journey of life.
Brother Viv John encourages us from the book of Romans to remain true to our faithful God, even in the midst of a failing world. When it seems like everything is falling apart around us, His love, mercy, and peace will keep us in the midst of the storm.
