The Readiness, Willingness, and Ableness of Christ

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on 4/11/21 by Pastor Steve Shields.

Everyone worries. Some even worry about worrying.

You can trust Jesus with EVERYTHING!

Why can you trust Jesus? Because of His readiness, willingness and ableness.

His readiness was established before the foundation of the world.

His willingness has never been in question.

He alone is able!

Christ has won the victory so that we can worship without reservation, proclaim Christ without apology and walk in freedom without fear.

What is Communion?

Communion is a celebration that we have been reconciled to Christ. Communion is also a meal of Thanksgiving.

In this podcast, Rev. Brad Sickler will take us through the passage in 1 Corinthians 11:17-22 showing us the right way to come to this dinner. Communion is more than a symbol. Communion gives us the opportunity to examine our hearts on a regular basis. God’s goal is for us to conform to the image of Christ.

Celebration :: Revelation

Presented at Curwensville Alliance Church on 11/10/2019 by Pastor Steve Shields

I would guess that if you asked one hundred people to describe The Book of Revelation in one word, not one of them would choose the word “celebration”.

And yet, you find heaven rejoicing over and over as the book unfolds.

Likewise, while some may call communion a “celebration,” most don’t have a celebratory attitude when they receive the elements in the Lord’s Supper.

But celebration is an integral part of our Christian experience.

This podcast helps us see this and, perhaps, offers hearts a new perspective on some ancient subjects.

What Jesus Says at Communion

Presented at Curwensville Alliance on August 4, 2019 by Pastor Steve Shields

The New Testament is packed full of information about that first communion — the Last Supper. Matthew treats is somewhat concisely, spending only 11 verses on the actual meal.

What does he tell us? He tells us that Jesus says three things to the disciples.

And, as this podcast indicates, he says the same kinds of things to us today.
