The preaching of God’s Word is a high priority at Stonebridge. We make available our sermons for those unable to attend on Sundays. We hope we are all helped as we listen to the Word of God preached.
Galations 5:16-18 Randy Meyers sermon was a wonderful challenge and encouragement for “Living by the Spirit”. We cannot do it on our own, but the Spirit can do it for us. Praise the Lord!
Stonebridge Church gathered for a cookout and potluck at beautiful Three Meadows Park last evening for our monthly fellowship. After dinner, the congregation shared with me, and I with them, some of our thoughts and feelings that have arisen since I arrived a little over a month ago. I’ve led worship and preached six Sundays to date. Following is a list of the congregation’s reflections followed by my own.Read More
I’ve been looking at historic and current models of Reformed worship: John Calvin’s The Form of Church Prayers, 1542; The Westminster Directory, 1645; and The Book of Common Worship, 1993. They all follow the model of a “group conversation with God” as described in an article / Bible study from the Calvin Institute for Worship Studies entitled, “The Pattern of a Worship Service.“Read More
Thanks to Glenn McIntyre for putting together and sending in the recent article for the Sentinel-Tribune and Messenger Journal announcing my installation at Stonebridge. Click the following link to read the Sentinel article online.
I am adjusting to the new responsibility of preaching every Sunday. My preaching responsibilities in the past were more infrequent, so I’m adjusting to a much faster pace. I love God’s word and the process of preparing and delivering weekly messages from it. I will continually seek to improve my skills in order to bring the truth of the Gospel to the church in the Holy Spirit’s power and love.
I am thankful and relieved to know that Beth and Stephen will be moving here soon. Our house in NC will be rented to another family beginning in September. We had hoped to sell it, but it seems the Lord has other plans for the time being.Read More
Glenn McIntyre recently made me aware that when I published the outline of First Peter earlier I did not include the verse numbers so that people could tell where we are as we go along. So here it is below.Read More
My wife Beth called today to say she’d received an application for rental of our home in NC. We’re hopeful that after the screening process this family will be able to rent our house for the next year or two while we settle in NW Ohio. We had hoped to sell the home but this may be the best option right now in the current economy. If all goes well, Beth and Stephen may be able to join me here by the end of August. That’s good news to me! I miss all of them. Son James had a birthday last week. I think it’s the first one I’ve missed in 22 years. Happy birthday James!
Matthew 4:11-11. Temptations come from without. The Devil seeks to make us sin; God allows them, and helps us overcome. And Jesus was a great example for dealing with temptation.

We are so thankful that God has sent us a pastor – Dan Sonnenberg. This is the sermon and charge given at the event of his installation.
Persevering in Persecution: Help and Hope for Strangers in a Strange Land. We’ve just begun a new sermon series on the New Testament book of First Peter. This book was originally a letter written by the apostle Peter, along with his fellow worker Silas, from Rome in about 64 A.D. to five groups of Christians a thousand miles away in Asia Minor, or what is modern day Turkey. These Christians were being persecuted for their faith in various ways, and Peter wrote to encourage them to continue in their faith in Christ in spite of their present trials.Read More
1 John 5: 13-18 Randy Meyers, in his last regular sermon, encouraged us to be patient and confident in prayer.
1 John 2:18-27 RE Randy Meyers, winding down his interim preaching schedules focuses attention on the importance of Truth, and that The Bible claims it is the source of truth.
1 Timothy 3:1-7. TE Scott Shaw, in his last “regular” time with us, challenged us to hold ourselves to the same standard Paul holds up for the “Overseer” or Elder. This is what Scripture teaches, and it was good to hear and be challenged. We so appreciate Scott’s faithful ministry to us the past 13 months.
