2009-2013 Calvary Sermons



A weekly podcast of the sermons preached from the pulpit of Calvary Presbyterian Church (EPC) in Flint, Michigan from 2009-2013.


  • The End of the Story


    As we come to the end of Ruth, we see how God fills Naomi's perceived "emptiness" through: 1) Rejoicing in a marriage 2) Redemption in the flesh 3) Royalty in the future

  • Making a Name


    In Ruth 4:1-12 we see how man's way of making sure your name is remembered is to concern yourself with self-interest, while God's way is to concern yourself with sacrificial love and service and leave the results to him.

  • Divine Faithfulness


    In Ruth 3 we see how Boaz made for a perfect redeemer: 1-He was worthy 2-He was willing 3-He was working

  • Not Forsaking the Living or the Dead


    In Ruth 2:14-23, Boaz points us to God as: A source of people & place,A source of provision, and A source of protection

  • A Man of True Worth


    In Ruth 2:1-13 we are introduced to Boaz, and we learn that a man of true worth... 1) Keeps the law of God not just in letter, but in spirit 2) Knows that blessings come from God 3) Considers not just self-interest, but the well-being of others

  • A Famine in the Land


    In the opening verses of Ruth, we see a famine of food, a famine of faith and a famine of family: three famines to which Jesus is the ultimate answer.

  • Concerned with the Wrong Things


    Much like the disciples in Acts 1:6-11, we are often concerned with the wrong things.

  • You Can't Walk on Water Unless You Get out of the Boat


    Jim Foote has ministered in Tyumen Siberia for the last 20 years, with Calvary partnering with him through prayer and financial support. On September 15th he preached on the opportunities we miss when we fail to trust God.

  • Train up a Child...


    Proverbs 22:6 famously tells us, "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." On Cristian Education Sunday, Rev. Scribner takes a look at what this verse is (and isn't) saying.

  • The Church of Jesus Christ


    In this final sermon from Colossians, we see that the Church that Jesus is building is a church that 1) Shares in fellowship, 2) Shares in instruction, and 3) Shares in encouragement

  • Prayer and Perseverance


    Prayer and perseverance are necessary components of the Christian walk, a fact Rev. Scribner considers as he preaches from Colossians 4:12-14.

  • A True Redemption Story


    We see in Colossians 4:1-11 that even in the greetings Paul passes along, we gain a glimpse into the glorious gospel of redemption.

  • Faithful and Beloved Brothers


    We should be careful not to just skip over all those personal greetings at the end of Paul's epistles. There are lessons to be learned from many of those individuals, as the examples of Tychicus and Onesimus show us in Colossians 4:7-9.

  • Talking to God; Talking to Man


    In Colossians 4:2-6, the Apostle Paul shares how we relate to God (through prayer) and how we are to relate to others (through wise, gracious speech).

  • Gospel Authority


    In Colossians 3:18-4:1, the Apostle Paul shares with us: 1) The Gospel Response to Authority, 2) The Gospel Exercise of Authority, and 3) The Gospel Underpinnings of Authority.

  • Playing for Christ's Team


    In Colossians 3:12-17 we see that... 1) We are chosen to be on Christ's team 2) We wear the uniform of Christ's team 3) We follow the playbook of Christ's team

  • What NOT to Wear


    As those for whom Christ is our life, there are certain things which ought to adorn our lives and things which should be noticeably absent. In Colossians 3:5-8, the Apostle Paul tells us 1) WHAT we should put off, 2) WHY we should put it off, and 3) HOW we put it off.
