“We Are God’s Provision,” 2 Corinthians 8:3-5

You’ve heard it numerous times, and I can assure you that to the extent God allows you to be part of City of Refuge Fellowship (CORF), you will continue to hear the following statement, that as the church of Christ we have a calling to devote ourselves to these three things outlined in Acts 2:42:...

“We Rest,” Hebrews 4:1-16

One of the major issues we have in the church today is not apathy, it is work. There is a lack of rest in the body of Christ. There is a desire to always be working for God. In this week’s sermon, “We Rest,” our worship pastor Melissa Kulynych shares with us what the Lord...

“We Protect Each Other,” Hebrews 3:1-19

David Jeremiah wrote, “Hebrews was written for a group of first century Christians who were in danger of giving up.” You see, the letter was written specifically to Jewish believers, men and women who were believers in Jesus Christ as the Messiah that were discouraged and tired and in the face of  more persecution they...

“Intimacy and Power of Pentecost,” John 14-16

In the past few weeks, we’ve been talking about a practical guide to being the church from the book of Titus. We’ve looked at self-control, sound doctrine and submission, words and themes that were repeated often in Paul’s letter. Tonight we come to the theme that Paul repeated more than any other in his instructions...

“Submission,” Titus 2:1-15, 3:1-2

This our third week in the book of Titus, which is a practical guide to be one body with many members, a practical guide to belonging to one another, a practical guide to be the church. In many ways Titus teaches us how to move from I, me and mine to we, us and ours....

“Sound Doctrine,” Titus 1:1-3

For over two years, we have talked about devotion. We have specifically talked about the calling of the church from Acts 2:42, to be devoted to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship and to prayer. Or as we have started to describe it, being devoted to God’s word, God’s people and God’s presence. This year...

“Self-control,” Titus 2:11-14

During the past three months we talked about the spiritual aspects of being the church. Jesus has connected us to himself and to each other, but tonight we start a little bit of a different path. What does that connection look like? How do we live it out practically? How do we unite rather than...

“The Kingdom of God,” Mark 1: 14-15

In this week’s sermon, Pastor Abie Kulynych talks about a topic that’s really important as we continue with our theme of “WE,” and try to move away from “me,” “you,” “they” and “them,” so we can move in “we” and “our” to really understand what it means to be joined to each other knowing that...

“In the Fire,” Daniel 3:16-29; Exodus 17:10-13

In this week’s sermon, “In the Fire,” our Youth Pastor Amanda Mackie helps us to look into a very important part that we very much often overlook when reading this so well-known story of the three Hebrew boys, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. This has to do with our purpose in this life, namely to glorify...

“We Are the People of God,” 1 Peter 2:1-12

“I will be their God and they will be my people.” This was not something God said once in passing or something he said because he got excited or got emotional. It’s not even something that was just a single prophetic promise. God said this multiple times to multiple generations, from Abraham to Jeremiah and...
