Date: 08/19/2018

Preacher: Colton Bennett, guest preacher

Key Text: Philippians 1:21-30

Description: 

“Now am I beginning to be a disciple. May it only be that I attain unto Jesus Christ, come fire and flood, grapplings with beasts, cuttings and manglings, wrenching of bones, hacking of limbs, crushing of my whole body…. The farthest bounds of the universe shall profit me nothing…. Him I seek, who died on our behalf; Him I desire, who rose again for our sake.”

— Ignatius of Antioch (35-107, earliest post-New Testament martyr)

There’s no doubt that Ignatius of Antioch was “all in” for Christ. How about you? Are you all in?SBC logo 204x204

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we’re pleased to welcome to our pulpit, guest preacher from Kentucky, and up-and-coming pastor-to-be, Colton Bennett… who describes himself as “a follower of Jesus, lover of Liberty, and passionate voice when the world is silent.” And though he’s only 19 years-old, he has the wisdom-filled insight that though we may all WANT to be “all in” for Christ, the truth is that none of us are… and that is PRECISELY why we need Jesus.

You are Called Here [2 Corinthians 5:17-20]

Sermon Notes

Date: 03/11/2018

Preacher: Vasiliy Kaletnik, missionary

Key Text: 2 Corinthians 5:17-20

Description: 

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

Alter Ego: I’m not a missionary??? I’m just sitting here in the pew.

SBC 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 abwe.org)… 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.

How We Demonstrate Hope [1 Peter 1:13-16]

Sermon Notes

Date: 01/28/2018

Preacher: Peter Montoro, guest pastor

Key Text: 1 Peter 1:13-16

Description: Holiness gets a bad rap in our society.

For some, it is one more difficulty in a life already filled with struggle. For others, it is a means of justifying their own sense of superiority to the rest of the world.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we welcome back guest preacher Peter Montoro from Westside Baptist Church, pinch-hitting for Pastor Monty as he and his family take a much needed respite in the wake of his son, Isaiah’s, death.

SBC logo 204x204In our message, Pastor Montoro shows us that holiness, rightly understood, is neither of these things mentioned at the beginning, but rather a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate the hope that we have in Christ. In the end, holiness is not about an upturned nose but about uplifted eyes.

Preacher: Peter Montoro, guest pastor

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 10:12-13

Description: Temptation. We all know what it’s like to face it – and we all know what it’s like to give in to it.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we’re pleased to welcome back to our pulpit guest preacher Peter Montoro from Westside Baptist Church, as Pastor Monty and his family take a much needed break to connect and mourn the loss of their child, Isaiah Gregory.

In our message, Pastor Peter reminds us that when it comes to temptation, the Scriptures teach – though we will never be safe from falling – we are always enabled to stand when, instead of looking to ourselves, we look to Jesus.

Living In-Between [Romans 1:3-4]

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.
