A Song of Trust (Psalm 4)

On the First Sunday of each month, the Orangeburg Church of Christ hosts an abbreviated worship service, after which we sing for an extended period of time. On these Sundays, the lessons are shorter than usual sermons. In 2020, these first Sunday lessons are going to focus on passages from the Psalms. This week, we consider a lesson about trust i God from Psalm 4

Walking with Kings: David – The Penitent Singer (Psalm 51)

As we continue our walk with some of Israel’s kings, we turn our attention this week to Israel’s most famous king, David. Though he was called, “a man after God’s own heart,” he had his flaws. One in particular, his sin with Bathsheba, led to a beautiful Psalm of repentance which is the basis for our study this morning.

Walking with Kings: Saul – A Well-Intentioned Failure (1 Samuel 15)

For the next few weeks, we will be spending time with a number of kings that we read about in Scripture and the lessons we can learn from them. We will conclude with the One who was “born King of the Jews.” In this lesson, we consider Saul, and despite his good intentions, his failure to obey God in 1 Samuel 15.

Give Thanks to the Lord: For He is Just – Psalm 136:10-20 – sermon audio

We have innumerable reasons to be thankful to God. A few of those reasons are described in Psalm 136, which reminds us to give thanks to God whose steadfast love endures forever. The Psalmist writes in a few lines about God’s defeat of Israel’s enemies, who were justly punished because of their wickedness. God is always justice and always renders as is fitting for the sins that are committed. Only those covered in the blood of Christ can have their sins washed away and be pure and righteous in the eyes of God.

“God Wants Me To Be Happy” – Revelation 22:7-14


Often, when people say, “God wants me to be happy,” it’s an attempt of justifying their sin. This happens so often, that some Christians, when asked if God wants happiness for his people, will answer, “No.” However, if we understand what it means to really be happy, and where true happiness is found, it should become quite clear that God does in fact want his children to be happy in Him.

Mothers Who Made A Difference – Proverbs 6:20-22 (sermon audio)

Happy Mothers Day!  We are so thankful for those dear women who wear the title of mother, and as we honor mothers on this day, we look at some examples of mothers from Scripture who made a difference.  The inspiration for this lesson comes from the article “Mothers Who Made a Difference” by Joe Chesser of the Fruitland Church of Christ in Fruitland, MO, published in Bulletin Gold #208 May 2019 (bulletingold.com)
