Good Friday Service 2018

March 30, 2018

Sermon Notes

Date: 03/30/2018

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 02/12/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 18:16-33

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

He was described as the “Friend of God.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that this “friend” was Abraham. And one of the ways this friendship was manifest was when God took him into intimate council before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah – an act in which we not only see God’s reassurance to Abraham of His justice, but we also see a glimpse into an intimacy that foreshadowed, if even in a small way, the intimacy that Christ purchased for us.
