    STRAIGHT SHOOTER-Faith That Saves!
    Can SUCH faith save you? James asks us this question and challenges us to put "our money where our mouth is" when dealing with faith! Is it just a word we use on Sunday...or do we SHOW our faith in how we deal with PAIN and with THOSE AROUND US! Don takes us into James 2-"Faith Vs. Works" and shows us that it's Faith PRODUCES Works! Included in this podcast is communion meditation by Roy Buckley and worship music from Central Wired Praise! We hope you are encouraged...and that you show your faith! Shalom!

    STRAIGHT SHOOTER-Joy in Pain
    "I can take just about anything...if you give it to me STRAIGHT!" Don uses this theory to start a series on the Book of James. This book in the New Testament is sometimes harsh, sometimes challenging, but always "shoots straight"! In this first session, we look at how pain happens in our life and what our response to pain and endurance should be. Included in this session is worship music from Central Wired Praise, and an incredible Communion Meditation by John Bridges, that includes the song "He Will Carry Me" by Mark Schulz. We pray that this series-and in particular, this session-encourages you and reminds you that we serve a God that is bigger than the pain we are experiencing! Shalom

    THE BODY-Membership
    Series: THE BODY...
    What does it mean to be a MEMBER of the Body of Christ? And does "membership have privileges?" Yes, there are privileges...but there are responsibilities too! Don concludes the series "THE BODY" with a discussion of how every person can and should be a part of the body. "Don't ask God to guide your footsteps, if you're not willing to move your feet." Included in this podcast is a powerful Communion Meditation from Jack Willis and encouraging music from Central Wired Praise and a special tune at the end by Rend Collective-"Build Your Kingdom Here!" Our prayer is that you are encouraged by this message and inspired to be a part of the Body...the one that is changing Portales and the world! Shalom

    THE BODY-Leadership!
    Series: THE BODY...
    If you want to build a HEALTHY CHURCH, then you must have healthy LEADERSHIP! Don takes us through a look at Elders and Deacons and how CHURCH should be built! There are Biblical examples of church formats and there are MYTHS about how a church should be run, and we want to look at what Scripture says about the matter. We look at some of the successes here at Central and are encouraged by worship led by CentralWired Praise and a communion song by Matt Maher. We pray you are encouraged and that we ALL follow HIS lead, and make Jesus the true Cornerstone of our Church building! Shalom

    THE BODY…Through John’s Eyes!
    Series: THE BODY...
    Many have said it: "I believe in God, but I don't like the Church!"...but that's a WRONG philosophy! Join us as Don starts a new series on the Church called "THE BODY" and how you can fit in and see it working as GOD designed it! In this session, Don looks at the letters to the 7 Churches in Revelation and sees how there is a little bit of us in them...and a little bit of each on of them in our church family! Enjoy worship from CentralWired Praise, and open your Bible to Revelation 2 and 3...God has a place for YOU in the body! Shalom!
