Sunday Follow up:  1 Corinthians 9 - "What sacrifices are we willing to make for the sake of others?"

I would imagine each of us has made sacrifices for others. It may have been for our spouse, our children, our parents, our siblings, etc… When it is people we care about, we tend not to mind as much. What about those who are just friends or acquaintances? Or those who are in your church family? What about people who aren’t even saved? What about people you don’t like or get along with?

Sometimes the sacrifices we make are not difficult. But sometimes they can be one of the hardest things you do. What do we do when the sacrifice we may be called upon to make is not something we want to do or believe we should have to? Especially when it involves unsaved people. There were several things we learned from Chapter 9.

First, we need to remember that as followers of Christ, we are servants. This means we are called to a life of serving others. A life of serving others will involve sacrifice. If we can get this firmly established in our thinking, sacrificing for the sake of others will become easier.
Second, think about Paul. Paul’s life was to go around and share the gospel from city to city. As an Apostle, he had a right to be supported financially, but he chose to forgo that right because he never wanted an unsaved person to say he was doing it for the money. When Paul reached out to his fellow Jews to tell them about Jesus, he would observe Jewish tradition and Jewish law. Not because he had to but because he knew if he did not, they would not listen to him. Paul was always thinking about how his actions might further the gospel. If we will think as Paul did, it will become easier to make sacrifices.

Thirdly, Paul was always mindful of what awaited him when He would go to be with Jesus. In 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 Paul said the following:
Verse 24 - “Run in such a way as to get the prize”
Verse 25 - “we do it to get a crown that will last forever”
Verse 27 – “No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”

Paul understood that no sacrifice he might ever make will ever come close to the rewards he would receive. If you could ask Paul now – “Paul, was it all worth it?” He would undoubtedly say – “more than you could imagine”. If we are willing to make sacrifices for the right reasons and with a right heart, our rewards will be great. If we will remember that, sacrificing for others will become easier.
We study the New Testament on Sunday mornings and the Old Testament on Wednesday Evenings

what you can expect

We know that visiting a new church can be intimating at times, especially when you may not know anyone or know what to expect.

We hope this will help you to be more comfortable
if you come and visit us


We take a systematic approach to the scriptures.
On Sunday mornings we teach through the New Testament - book by book, chapter by chapter, verse by verse.
On Wednesday nights we are going through the Old Testament. Wednesday nights are more laid back, questions are asked, people have an opportunity to respond.


First thing you will notice with the singing portion of our service is that we have the children with their parents.  We want the children to learn to worship as a family. The songs we sing are generally contemporary with an occasional hymn thrown in.

Kids & Youth

Children begin their time with us with their parents for the singing portion of the service. We do have nursery available at the beginning if you need to take advantage of it. Once the singing is done, the kids are dismissed and will be met by the teachers at the back doors of the sanctuary.
At this time we do not have a Youth Ministry. The youth we have participate with Oasis Youth Ministries during the week. On Sunday mornings, the youth remain in the sanctuary where they will learn the Word of God with the adults.


Some come in every day clothing and others may come dressed up. We don't want you to stress about what to wear, we just want you to come and worship Jesus.
