Intergenerational Relationships in the House of God

Intergenerational Relationships in the House of God

“Silents, Boomers, Xers, Millennials, and Generation Y” make up the generations within the church.  Not surprisingly, each generation has a unique way of looking at the world. In the house of God, these differing perspectives come together.  What do we do with this? Titus 2 speaks to how each age group is to behave itself […]

Conquerors: Celebrating the FCC Story

Conquerors:  Celebrating the FCC Story

We serve a speaking God.  Jesus speaks to his church and reveals his will.  Apart from this specific revelation of Christ, we would surely be lost. A local church in submission to Christ can surely expect to hear from him if she so desires.  We did.  We heard. The specificity with which we heard is […]

Doing Good Work

Doing Good Work

Ephesians 6:5-8 Pauls tells us “Bondservants, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling…” Say what?  Immediately questions come to our mind.  Should we not focus on doing away with slavery?  What if I’m asked to do something immoral?  What if the boss is a ‘jerk’?  What about human rights? At the core of these […]

Speaking the Gospel

Speaking the Gospel

Peter writes to a group of believers who are dealing with persecution.  He is very concerned that they have a clear path to responding rightly to their persecutors.  He details the way Jesus entrusted himself to the Father in the midst of persecution (1 Peter 2:23).  So believers, when persecuted are to render their trust […]

Discipling our Children

Discipling our Children

This message is designed to do two things:  1) call our parents to attention and 2) give vision and direction to continued parenting. I’ve enjoyed many conversations with friends in Williamson County.  Being a pastor I naturally take a pastoral interest in the parenting philosophies of our culture.  Parents are deeply concerned for their children. […]

Discipleship at FCC

Discipleship at FCC

In working through our Corporate Covenant, we come to that portion focused on discipleship.  What I would like to do is share some personal history, develop some definitions, and point the way forward for us as a people of God. As to personal history, here we go.  From the time I was born, I have […]

Kept in Perfect Peace

Kept in Perfect Peace

You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you. Isaiah 7-8 records an amazing word which YWH gives to Isaiah and the faithful.  Two nations were preparing for war against Judah.  They were coming.  Fear was in the air, doubt, and distress were rampant.  This coming catastrophe highlighted the sources of salvation, […]

To the Church at Sardis

To the Church at Sardis

The fifth church Jesus addresses, of the seven, is Sardis.  This one is different.  Jesus’ tone is different.  It is different because Jesus doesn’t commend them for anything, as in, anything. Their problem is two-fold.  One, they have a reputation on which they rely.  Rather than focusing on actual health, they look to others’ opinions […]

To the Church at Thyatira

To the Church at Thyatira

Thyatira was a city that buffered two larger regions.  It was an outpost city, a military garrison of whatever region was prominent.  It was also home to numerous guilds and trade groups.  More importantly though, it was the place where Christians gathered to follow God. Our Lord introduces himself as the judge and the implementer […]

To the Church at Pergamum

To the Church at Pergamum

The city of Pergamum was the most distinguished city of Asia.  So said Pliny the Younger, an ancient historian.  The city was wealthy and very focused in their allegiance to the Roman Emperor. To this church, Jesus introduces himself as the one who has the two-edged sword.  This is an offensive weapon designed for more […]
