Sermons – 2017

Some sermons will be available as audio files for download. Because sermons are meant to be preached and are therefore prepared with the emphasis on verbal presentation (i.e., are written for the ear), the written accounts occasionally deviate from proper and generally accepted principles of grammar and punctuation. Most often, these deviations are not mistakes per se, but are indicative of an attempt to aid the listener in the delivery of the sermon.

Also, audio sermons may or may not have an accompanying text version available. Please contact the church office at 919-682-5511 for more information.
