SERMON AUDIO - Do you want to be free? Forgiveness is setting someone free... only to realize that person is yourself. What is it and how can we do it? Click below to listen to Sunday's sermon based on Jesus' parable of the Unforgiving Servant in Matthew 18.
buzzsprout.com This week, we dive into the parable of the unforgiving servant and examine how we can and should forgive one another as God has forgiven us. We see in this story that the master of the servant forgives his servant by seeing him with compassion, ca...
Over the past several months we have been collecting items for SMILE boxes to send to mission partners in Nicaragua. We are so thankful to everyone who has been participating! We still need a few specific items, and it's never too late to get involved if you haven't already. Over the next couple of months we will be focusing on collecting Toys (especially for girls or unisex) and School Supplies. Examples include yo-yo's, jump ropes, small stuffed animals, spinning tops, pencil sharpeners, pens, boxes of crayons, or colored pencils, and paper products (no larger than 5x7).
SERMON AUDIO - In Matthew’s Gospel, we encounter a number of parables that are intended to describe the inbreaking of the Kingdom of Heaven that Jesus is announcing. The first of these parables is the Parable of the Sower, found in Matthew 13:1-23. In this parable, Jesus instructs his disciples to hear, understand, and the bear fruit—meaning that they should listen to Jesus and act accordingly. These parables teach us that God’s reality, God’s kingdom, is truly arriving in the person of Jesus, and we can join in bringing this kingdom to bear in our world.

[05/30/19] Hey Skillman Church of Christ family - QUESTION - what Scripture is encouraging you right now in your life? (Post in comment section below)
AUDIO SERMON - from this past Sunday at the Skillman Church of Christ. As we strive to be a church families who CARES for each other, we look at an incredible story from Genesis 16 where God is given a new name. Normally, it is God who is doing the naming, but in this story it isHagar (a woman, foreigner, slave, pregnant mother). She calls God "The One Who Sees Me." What an incredible story that sheds light upon our God, who sees each of us and how we are tasked as a church to "see" and care for those in our church family and neighborhood.

SERMON AUDIO - Last Sunday, we spoke of the cross as a symbol of God's love, grace, and forgiveness, as well as to remember the sacrifice that Jesus was willing to make for us. However, the cross did not originally mean that. It was a symbol, instead, of Rome's power--that no one dare revolt against or oppose Rome. But through the sacrifice of Jesus, the cross now declares victory. Victory against sin and death, and victory to follow Jesus as relationship with God has been redeemed and restored.

YOU'RE INVITED - to participate in the first ever Racial Unity Leadership Summit here in Dallas, Texas on May 15-18, 2019. During this summit, we will gather and pray for the family of Botham Shem Jean. As ACU professor Dr. Jerry Taylor puts it:
"It is often the case that our memory is as long as the media stretches it. Violent shootings of unarmed citizens have become commonplace."
We have work to do as Christians in this great city to contribute to racial reconciliation and this event creates space to be a part these conversations in hopes of generating positive change. Skillman's own Jake Jacobson, John Mark Davidson, and Kavian McMillon are on the schedule.

Check out today’s sermon interview with Royce Prude, Jr! Royce and Jake recorded their conversation on Friday so that you could return back to this conversation and continue to reflect on it this week. We hope you are encouraged to life faithfully to Jesus and challenged to consider how you can participate in living as Jesus did with anything and everything we have—even in difficult circumstances.
SERMON AUDIO: As we continue to prepare for Easter Sunday and the resurrection of Jesus, we recognize that within each of us is a dangerous darkness and selfishness. We each desire to tell our story on our terms, and in such a way that we are benefited and blessed as a result. Often, this way of living is at the expense of others. In order for us to be benefited and blessed, someone else may have to suffer or to take a lower place than us. However, Jesus encourages us to intentionally choose someone else’s good over our own. It is in giving that we receive. It is in losing our lives that we find it. Jesus’ economy is upside down from our own. As we prepare for Easter and how Jesus gave his life for ours, we choose to participate in this upside-down economy of giving and losing instead of taking and benefiting at the expense of someone else.

SERMON AUDIO: During the course of his ministry, we often hear that Jesus knew his hour was coming, or that it had arrived. This week, we encounter Jesus telling a parable with time as a main character in his story. The gardener asks for one more year in order that the fig tree might produce fruit. Jesus’ intention is to ask us whether we are prepared now to bear fruit? The hour is coming when Jesus will give his life on the cross. So too for us, the time is approaching and even now is here for us to bear fruit for the sake of the people in our community, our city, and our world.

“Repentance means to change one’s mind. It leads to a change in action. Personally, in my life taking those action steps toward Christ is a daily obedience.” - Travis Upshaw #skillmanchurchofchrist #lent #repentance #godisgood
Announcement from Cricket's Closet at the Skillman Church of Christ #CricketsCloset #SkillmanChurchofChrist
A little humor to get you through this Tuesday 😂 #skillmanchurchofchrist
SERMON AUDIO: As we begin our series on Lent, we read the story of Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness. During this time, Jesus is tested and tempted by Satan, and he relies on Scripture and his trust in God the Father to care for him. We learn from the temptation of Jesus that there is nothing (no item or idea) that is worth obtaining if we must give up who God has created us to be. Jesus refuses to sacrifice his calling from God for physical comfort, power, or security and safety. Instead, Jesus models sacrifice. As we prepare for Easter over the course of these next weeks, we participate in the sacrificial model that Jesus exemplified and modeled. Every good gift comes with a cost, and as we prepare to celebrate the resurrection and the promise of God’s victory over sin and death as the gift that it is to all of us, we ask ourselves what is it that we are willing to give up as we follow the example of Jesus in our everyday lives.

SERMON AUDIO & VIDEO - Last week, we culminated our "Jesus" series with taking the Lord's Supper together as a community. What do we do when we take communion? In the book of Mark, Jesus speaks of his disciples taking the bread and cup and that it represents the his body and blood. What does this truly mean? While on earth, with love and sacrifice Jesus took on the sins of the world. As disciples of Jesus, we as the body of Christ can do the same to “take on” the sins of the world through our collective voice and resources. We can challenge unjust systems, stand up to hate, confront materials. Communion is the reminder each week that because of Jesus, and through Jesus we can articulate another narrative.
Click the link below to hear the full sermon and feel free to view the video that was played during the communion time.
