Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Tear Down Your Idols!”, based on II Kings 18:1-7:

  • God gave the command to “not have, make, or worship idols”.
  • While most of us may not have any idols in our homes, sometimes we make things into idols.
  • An idol can be defined as “anything that distracts you from worshiping God”.
  • What about “cultural trinkets”?  Do they count as idols?
  • You may not worship Buddha statues that you may have, but why have them in the first place?
  • Do you worship your kids? grandkids? money? spouse? sex? cars? etc?
  • Tear down those idols in your life and put God back in the place He deserves!  In the CENTER of your life!

Sunday’s Coming!

Posted by Rick on August 28, 2008

Join us this Sunday at Immanuel as we take a look at II Kings 18:1-7 with the sermon, “Tear Down Your Idols!”  Many of the kings of the Old Testament were commended for “doing what was right in the eyes of the Lord”.  Some were condemned for “doing what was evil in the sight of the Lord”.  Others had a commendation, but with a caveat: “They did right, but did not tear down the altars in the high places”.  We’ll look together to see what that means for each of us today.

Sunday evening is our 5th Sunday Sing and Finger Food Fellowship.  This month, however, we will be adding a very special time of fellowship as we incorporate a baby shower for Amy and Tony Neis.  They are registered at Wal-Mart, so it should be easy to find what they need.

Be sure to invite someone to Sunday School!
