Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/29/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: CoronaVirus

Key Text: Romans 13:11-14

Description:

How are we to live during a crisis? 

How are we to walk when told to stay put? 

How are we to represent God’s kingdom — a kingdom of hope —when chaos is all around us?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast as Pastor Monty Simao continues his virtual preaching to our church body while we obey stay-at-home governmental mandates during the COVID-19 Pandemic, he shows us that Romans 13 gives us the answers to these questions.

Not only does it provide us the way to walk during crisis, but, perhaps more importantly, it provides us a way to live with the end in sight…and how, ultimately, the return of our Lord affects the way we live in the here and now.

The CoronaVirus, the Gathering Ban, and the Introvert’s Dream Come True [Romans 13:1-10]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/22/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: CoronaVirus

Key Text: Romans 13:1-10

Description: One of the most basic commands of the Christian life is the command to gather together with other believers… But how is this even possible in the midst of a global pandemic where civil authorities have mandated social distancing, gathering-caps, and quarantines?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao makes a mark in our little country church’s 91 year history as he preaches an unprecedented, church-at-home, virtual sermon during an unprecedented time in our nation’s history.

But how are we as Christians are to respond to mandates of isolation during a crisis such as COVID-19?

After all, the whole context of the New Testament is the assembly of the saints. The epistles were written to local bodies, the book of Acts was the preaching of the Gospel and the establishment of local assemblies.

But is there ever a time when the church simply cannot meet?  What circumstances would need to take place for such a time to present itself? And how would God want us to meet with Him during this time?

The Foolishness of the Cross [1 Corinthians 1:18-25]

March 15, 2020

SBC frame line - current sermons
Sermon Notes

Date: 03/15/2020

Preacher: Josh Peglow, guest preacher

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 1:18-25

Description: 

Average Guy: The Cross? The Cross is a joke! It’s for fools. It lacks any intellectual fortitude or logical reasoning. If I’m going to believe in such a fairy tale, I need some solid proof.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, Josh Peglow, fills in at the pulpit to share a concept in the the Bible that at first to the believer may seem incredulous (and wrong): the Cross as foolishness.

But that’s exactly how God wants it to be seen. His intent is to turn conventional wisdom on its head. For as we begin to understand why He wants it this way, we begin to see the depth and richness of His power through it.

…And then we begin to realize where the foolishness really lies.

The Mission of the Church [2 Timothy 1:8 – 2:2; Matthew 28:18-20]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/08/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: The Church

Key Text: 2 Timothy 1:8-2:2; Matthew 28:18-20

Description:

Church: Mission Control, this is Church. Do you copy?

Mission Control: This is Mission Control. We’re reading you loud and clear, Church. Continue with transmission.

Church: Yeah… what are we supposed to do again??

______________

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study on The Church, looking this time at its mission… a topic which certainly opens up questions and, sometimes, confusion.

Questions like: Who defines the mission? Do churches come up with their own individual mission? Can the mission change to meet evolving cultural constructs from generation to generation?

With so many questions about the mission — coupled with the numerous contexts in which we use the word — it’s no wonder that some may question whether the church has a mission at all?

The Local Church [Ephesians 4:4-6]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 03/01/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: The Church

Key Text: Ephesians 4:4-6

Description:

“Here is the church. Here is the steeple. Open the doors and see all the people.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our study on The Church, in which we take time consider how God has organized His great flock.

People all around the world congregate in small, local gatherings in their neighborhood churches to worship. But how does that reflect the nature of the grander-sized, universal Church — God’s people in all generations?

And, perhaps more importantly, how do we as believers live in light of that great “oneness” we all share in Christ?

Key Text: Ephesians 5:22-30; Romans 9:1-9; Galatians 3:26-29

What is the church? 

Is the church somewhere you go? 

Is the church something you do? 

What makes you part of the church? 

 

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao embarks on a new study on The Church, and explains these are some of the questions we need to think about as we define it from a biblical standpoint.

For we may find that the very way we have been thinking about the church… is not biblical at all.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 02/16/2020

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Isaiah 2:2-4; 1 Corinthians 13:13,8; Ephesians 4:11-13

Description:

“All good things must come to an end.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monthy Simao preaches his final sermon for our study in the book of Revelation, in which he points out the many wonderful and good gifts the Lord has given to His church in this life. 

Many of His good gifts, however, will come to an end. They will come to an end when this present evil age is over, and they no longer are needed. 

SBC logo 204x204

For unlike the idiom we all know, stated at the beginning, which conveys negative emotions of acceptance that all things are temporary… with God, these things come to an end because they must make way for the better things that have arrived.
