Overcoming Worry

Four times in the sixth chapter of Matthew's gospel, Jesus insisted that we DO NOT WORRY. Worry can be devastating to a person mentally, physically, and spiritually. Today's message from the Scotch Ridge pulpit focuses on practical steps we can take to rid ourselves of worry.

And now the Oak Ridge Boys will sing the beautiful hymn, "God Will Take Care of You."

A New Direction

A lot of people avoid God because they relate God to a stuffy church service--singing the same old hymns and doing the same old things. In reality God is the most creative Force to experience and know. It is God's nature to do something new, something creative. That's why a decision to follow Christ will always lead you in a new direction. Check out today's message from the Scotch Ridge pulpit from the gospel of John 1:29-42.
