Sermon Title: Golden Rule Redux

Sermon Text: Matthew 7: 7-12


Words to Consider:


“I believe in the Golden Rule – The Man with the Gold… Rules.” – Mr. T


“I keep waiting for the roof to cave in. I was raised to follow the Golden Rule, you know, treat people the way you wish to be treated. That’s kind of the way I live my life. Maybe someone up there likes me for that.” – Matt LeBlanc


“The golden rule is that there are no golden rules.” – George Bernard Shaw


“Absolutely speaking, Do unto others as you would that they should do unto you is by no means a golden rule, but the best of current silver. An honest man would have but little occasion for it. It is golden not to have any rule at all in such a case.” – Henry David Thoreau





Are you wanting to celebrate your new life in Christ?  We will be having baptisms in August.  If you are interested in being baptized, or would like to have a conversation with someone about what baptism means for a believer, please contact
