Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/14/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Job 9:32-35;Heb 4:14-16; Matt 26:36-40

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

Alter Ego:

If God can prevent our suffering then why doesn’t He?

Scandia Host: That’s a good question.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao steps to the pulpit once again following his son, Isaiah’s, tragic death… to wrestle with this. “How can we go to God for comfort when ultimately, God is the one who could have prevented it and has therefore ordained our pain?”

Alter Ego: Exactly! That’s what I want to know.

Scandia Host: Well, you better pull up a pew and take a listen.

Three Ways God Speaks to Us [Psalm 19:1-14]

January 7, 2018

SBC frame line - current sermons
Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 01/07/2018

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Psalm 19

SBC logo 204x204Description:

Alter Ego: Believing in God is utter nonsense. It’s ridiculous! Anyone who does has obviously checked his intelligence at the door. I mean how can someone believe in a God they can’t even see?

Scandia Host: That was pretty good.

Alter Ego: Thanks, I’ve been practicing.

Scandia Host: Sadly, though, too many people believe this way — so much so that they have their own groups.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the book of Psalms to show us that  even the heavens declare His name. They speak of His Glory, His Greatness, His Goodness, and His Grace. Nevertheless, even though God is shouting His existence into creation, a person with perfect vision can still be too blind to see it.

Notes:

Three Ways God Speaks to Us

  1. Heavens
  2. Hands
  3. Heart

Challenge: 

If you are one who is unsure of God, consider seeking to know Him. Open a Bible to the book of John, ask God to reveal Himself, and read the text with an open mind. It might just prove to be the most exciting decision of your life.

Joy to the World [Psalm 98:1-9]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/31/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Psalm 98

SBC logo 204x204Description:  While the Bible contains 150 Psalms, there is one that captures the true essence of all of them. And yet, if you didn’t know it, its title would fool you. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao, in the wake of his son’s tragic death, leads us to Psalm 98 – because he was lead there. It’s a psalm that in just nine simple verses, lays out the very heart of worship and the great and wonderful God who is greatly to be praised.

The Miracle in the Manager [Isaiah 7:14]

December 24, 2017

Sermon Notes

Date: 12/24/2017

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Series: Advent, Christmas Eve

Key Text: Isaiah 7:14

SBC logo 204x204Description: “Virgin birth” – an expression people hear all around the world during Christmastime. But for people outside of Christianity – and sadly for far too many within it – they consider it a myth. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, elder Keith Barker delivers a Christmas message that seeks to clearly and simply state the absolute essential need for Christ being born of a virgin.

Sacrifice of Praise [Hebrews 13:15]

December 17, 2017

SBC frame line - current sermons

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/17/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Hebrews 13:15

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

Host: Sacrifice and Praise.

Alter Ego: Wait a minute are we playing a game of opposites?

Host: No, but I can see what you mean. Because “sacrifice” sounds somber and costly.

Alter Ego: –And “praise” sounds joyful… and a lot easier than “sacrifice.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes to the pulpit once again – following the fresh sting of the sudden loss of his son – and points out that when it comes to these two words, it’s not always one or the other, for the author of Hebrews tells us that we are to offer a sacrifice of praise. In fact, much of the New Testament describes the Christian life as the intersection between these two terms, where they not only meet but become intertwined into the very warp and woof of what it means to be a Christian.

Living In-Between [Romans 1:3-4]

December 10, 2017

SBC frame line - current sermons
Sermon Notes

Date: 12/10/2017

Preacher: Peter Montoro, guest pastor

Key Text: Romans 1:3-4

Description: …The “in-between time.”

We all know what it’s like waiting between two events – engagement and marriage, hiring and starting a job, and many others. Yet, what if there was another sort of in-between, an in-between that affected absolutely everything about how we live our lives in this broken world?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, as we move forward in the wake of the death of young Isaiah Simao – the son of our pastor, Monty Simao – we are blessed to welcome to our pulpit the associate pastor of Westside Baptist in nearby Bremerton, Washington, Peter Montoro.

SBC logo 204x204Today Pastor Peter reminds us that as believers, we live our lives in this world in-between our crucifixion with Christ and our coming resurrection. And as we wait, it’s easy to feel as though the struggles we face will last forever. We must remember though, that just as the cross of Christ only made sense to the disciples in the light of His resurrection, so too the crosses we face will only fully make sense to us in the light of our own resurrection.
