You’re Welcome at the Table

Presented by Pastor Steve (with Jenna Witherite and Drew Stoddart presenting music) on 11/20/2017 at Curwensville Alliance

This week is Thanksgiving. A week where most of us share a meal with family and friends around a table.

There’s something about gathering around a table. It connects us in ways that little else can.

Maybe that’s why Jesus used a table.

Maybe that’s why Jesus invites us to a table.

This podcast speaks about God’s perspective on tables, and invites you to join Him there.

The special music is from Jenna Witherite and Drew Stoddart.

Can You Really Believe in the EXCLUSIVITY of Jesus :: PODCAST

Presented by Pastor Steve Shields at Curwensville Alliance Church on 2/26/2016

One of the least popular teachings of Christian faith is the exclusivity of Christ. We, at least in the West, hate exclusivity. We’ve been taught that anything exclusive is wrong. Morally wrong.

But when it comes to the exclusivity of Jesus, one of the reasons people have trouble with this is because they misapply or over-apply the concept of exclusivity.

Jesus is exclusive – in that he is the only way to the Father (John 14:6). 
But Jesus is inclusive – in that anyone hears his call can come.

This podcast suggests that when we set aside the exclusivity of Christ as the only means of salvation, we not only go against the teachings of Scripture, we rob ourselves of a day to day blessing — a helpful one.

LifeBuilding: A Life of Courage PODCAST

Presented on 9/25/2016 at Curwensville Alliance by Pastor Steve Shields

If there’s one thing we all admire, it’s courage. Stories of courage from history abound, reminding us, calling us to thankfulness, and inspiring us.

One of my favorite moments in American history is the courageous challenge JFK laid out in his speech at Rice University.

Young engineers looking on were shocked, frightened, and inspired by that courageous challenge.

In the podcast linked below, we look at the concept of courage and examine how we might build lives of courage.
