Good Friday Service 2018

March 30, 2018

Sermon Notes

Date: 03/30/2018, Good Friday

Description: Good Friday… arguably the most solemn day on the Christian calendar – a day that could hardly be classified as “good” just over 2000 years ago. …But from our vantage point – as we sit on this side of the Resurrection – there is no better way to describe it. 

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we invite you to pull up a virtual pew, and join our little country church for our 2018 Good Friday worship service. May the mixture of scripture reading, congregational hymn singing, and church family instrumentals allow you to remember and rejoice in all that Christ has done on our behalf… and that it is indeed good.

The King Has Come [Luke 19:28-42]

March 25, 2018

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/25/2018, Palm Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Luke 19:28-42

Description: Jesus had just raised Lazarus from the dead, and the crowds were following Him as He descended into the royal city of Jerusalem – the King had arrived!

Today on this Palm Sunday, Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao takes us to the book of Luke to show us that as Jesus entered the city, the crowds cheered and lined the road with their coats and branches as they waved palms in the air in celebration of His arrival.  SBC logo 204x204

…But soon the cheering would stop.  Soon the “hosannas” would be replaced with “Crucify him!” – and for this, while the crowds shouted, Jesus wept.

Judah’s Shame [Genesis 38:1-28]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/18/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 38


Average Guy: Okay, so we’re reading through Genesis, and we’re in the middle of Joseph’s gripping story. And then all of a sudden the story just stops.  …And we start talking about things that I can’t believe are even in the Bible!!! …the dirty laundry of Judah – full of lust and deception. Why???

Scandia Host: Good question – because on the surface it does seem a bit disjointed. Not to worry, though, Joseph’s narrative will resume shortly. …But to begin to even understand why the wicked actions of Joseph’s older brother, Judah, are on display here, we need to step back and remember that on a deeper level this is part of the story – and God is the storyteller.

SBC logo 204x204Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis where, indeed, the narrative of the chronicles of Joseph take a seemingly sudden break to cast light on a section of scripture that is outright scandalous – a section of scripture that, honestly, we’d just rather skip. In it Judah’s heart springs forth actions that are both repulsive and shameful. Certainly our Lord and Savior deserves a better forefather than him. But it is in this darkness that our Lord’s grace abounds. For if God did not use sinful people to bring about His glory and purposes, He’d have no one to use. And it is in this moment that we realize that we are no better than Judah.

Sermon Notes

Date: 03/11/2018

Preacher: Vasiliy Kaletnik, missionary

Key Text: 2 Corinthians 5:17-20


Scandia Host: If you are in Christ, you have been called to be a missionary.

Average Guy: I’m not a missionary??? I’m just sitting here in the pew.

Scandia Host: I get it. You better listen up though.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we welcome back to our pulpit – after an eight year hiatus – Scandia Bible Church supported, missionary and brother in Christ, Vasiliy Kaletnik (of… who for nearly 30 years – since the fall of the USSR – has been preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the very poor and landlocked Eastern European country of Moldova. For all intents and purposes, he’s a modern day circuit preacher, preaching at five different churches during the week and three on Sunday – making disciples and baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Following Brother Vasiliy, Pastor Monty echoes a short sermon… that no matter where we are in the world – whether it be in Moldova or Poulsbo – we, as Christians, are all missionaries: we share the same calling, same message, and serve the same Lord with Christ as the head.
