So What Is About You?

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 4/24/22 by Reverend Bernie Knefley.

Listen to Reverend Bernie Knefley as he goes through what is about you.

God made us in His image. We are to reflect His image.

We are to obey the Ten Commandments. They are not merely suggestions.

The cross is what we take up.

Our witness is what we portray in our lives.

If you were on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you????

Faith In The Resurrection

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 4/17/22 by Pastor Steve Shields.

Listen as Pastor Steve discusses some reasons to believe in the resurrection.

It’s unnecessary. There are many religions without a resurrection narrative. Since it is so unbelievable, the disciples would have been better off to not include the resurrection, if it were not truth. It is unavoidable. From the beginning to the end, the resurrection is in the Bible!

Belief in the resurrection changes us. The resurrection demonstrates Christ’s power. It gives us hope and confirms Christ’s atoning work.

A belief in the resurrection doesn’t look like an intellectual or mental assent. It isn’t even a faith in the event of the resurrection because even the demons believe there is one God.

Instead, belief in the resurrection looks like faith in Jesus Christ, faith in being with Christ. As well as faith in the journey of walking with Jesus.

Palm Sunday – What The Children Saw

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 4/10/22 by Pastor Steve Shields.

Pastor Steve guides us through what the children saw on Palm Sunday. We need to remember that children notice what we are doing.

What do children notice? They notice their parents worshipping. They notice excitement. Children notice change.

Even if you do not have children, you influence people. What do you want those you influence to see?

Show them a hunger for God. Give them knowledge of God’s Word. Show them a commitment to Christ.

How do you manage your influence? Think about the influence you have on others. Pray about your influence and trust God with it.

Daniel in the Lion’s Den :: BIBLE STORIES

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 4/03/22 by Pastor Steve Shields.

What do we see when we look at Daniel?

Daniel was a good person to have around. He was above reproach. Even though the administrators looked for ways to destroy his reputation, they could not find anything. Daniel was “at risk”. Because of his goodness, Daniel was hated by those who were jealous of him.

Daniel was an agent of hope to those around him, and he was loved, even by King Darius. Daniel was an influencer.

You have Daniel potential. You can be a good person to be around. You can build a good reputation. You can thrive even when life is hard. You can be an agent of hope. You can live securely by trusting God. You can influence others for Christ.
