Thank you very much, David. I always feel so much love and gratitude to be back in this wonderful congregation. My wife and I and five children spent some of our best years here and we brought up the children in worship here three times a week and then at Presbyterian Day School and what a benefit and a blessing it has been in their lives...

The Word Became Flesh

This morning we are taking a short break from our ongoing studies in the book of Exodus to capitalize on the opportunity afforded by the Advent season and together to think in a sustained and concentrated way about the significance of the first coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  And this year, our thinking will be directed by the prologue to the gospel according to John. ...

“How Do I Tell Jesus I Love Him?”
Dr. Derek W. H. Thomas

Please be seated. Now, How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds, that's about as perfect a hymn, I think, as has ever been written; and I have made it known in the past, I think, that I want it sung at my funeral. So if...

Exodus 28:1-45

“The Beauty of Holiness”

Dr. J. Ligon Duncan III
