Sermon Notes: Ecclesiastes Chapter 1.
Are you searching for some meaning, some purpose, some point, some direction to your life, in this busy, secular world of ours, that has no time for God?

This Book was written 3000 years ago, and yet it’s still so powerful, it’s still so relevant, it has still so much to teach us!
Sermon Notes: Proverbs Chapter 22 verse 1 to 11. Reputation.
I wonder what people would say about you? How do you gain the respect of others? Proverbs Chapter 22 reminds us to ‘Choose a reputation over riches, for being held in high esteem is better than having money. It’s something that you choose; it is a choice that you make. You can choose what people think of you! You choose the kind of reputation that you have by the way that you act, the way that you live, the way that you behave, by the way that you do your work at work, by the way you treat other people.
Sermon Notes: Why doesn’t God help us when we are hurting? John 11.

Sermon Notes: Pentecost.
What a day it must have been! The Apostles did their best to wait and watch for the promises of God, just as Jesus instructed them. But the kind of waiting they were asked to do was no ordinary waiting – they were waiting on God. It was the waiting room of all waiting rooms, because what followed was beyond anything they could ever imagine in their wildest dreams.
