July 1, 2018 Jonah: The Call Upon Your Life

by fccshelbyville

This morning we come to the third of the four messages from the book of Jonah. Next week ends our series of messages from this very short, but powerful book. Today I want to talk to you about calling. The book of Jonah covers a lot of themes, and one of them is the calling […]

June 10, 2018 Jonah – The Ministry of Interruption

by fccshelbyville

Some years ago, early in my ministry, a friend of mine one day asked how things were going. It had been one of those weeks that became very busy with everything but what I had planned to do. I am a compulsive list maker, and at the beginning of each week I make a list […]

June 3, 2018 Jonah: You Can Run, But You Can’t Hide

by fccshelbyville

For much of the summer I am going to offer “summer reruns.” Over the years of my ministry I have rarely reused messages, but since early in the spring I have considered doing so for the summer months. Some of the messages may be from earlier in my ministry here at FCC while others may […]

May 25, 2014 Jonah: You Can Run But You Can Hide

May 28, 2014 Jonah 1:1-17  Some years ago, as I drove into a community, I noticed a church sign – Nineveh Christian Church.  At the time, I thought it was an unfortunate name for a church.  What church wants to be associated with the city of Nineveh, as God says in the book of Jonah, […]
