           Welcome To Our Church Service Here at

Shelton Christian Church! 

We will have an FM transmitter to broadcast into the parking lot for those who want to be part of this but are not ready to enter the building. It is on 95.5.  FYI, there will be no Sunday School, Children’s Church or Nursery.  However the nursery will be open for kids who need changed or are getting fussy and need a place to hang out. And like always, we post the service on the church website later on Sunday.


           Will you do us a favor please? If you know someone who is not on Facebook, or gets email can you let them know what is up? We will do our best to get the word out but if everyone helps more people will know.  Thanks.


           Lastly, thanks so much for remembering our church. We have been able to operate here and pay the bills. There are several options, like mail a check, online bill pay at your banking institution or stop by the office. Call to make sure we are here. Today you may put your offering in the box as you enter the sanctuary.  We have a donation link on our website as well. Check it out.






Text: John 16:33


Big Idea: Because of Jesus’s victory we have nothing to fear.


I.   This so that you may have _____________ in me.


A.   Jesus has spent several chapters telling his disciples _____________is about to happen.

B.   The _____________for this information is so they can be at peace.

C.   In John 14:27 Jesus processes us a peace that the world cannot _____________.


II.  This world is _____________.

A.   This trouble will include _____________and persecution.

B.   This trouble will include internal _____________.

C.   It is the antithesis of _____________.


III.  Take heart, I have overcome. And so will you.

A.   In a few hours Jesus will confront the ‘_____________’ head on.

B.   He will be _____________, mocked, scourged, and crucified.

C.   People will demand his _____________.

D.   But come Sunday morning he _____________ it all.

E.   He overcomes his _____________.

F.   He overcomes _____________ enemies, sin and death.

G.   He overcomes the ‘_____________’ of this world.

H.   John will note in his letter that _____________ too are overcomers.


Challenge: Frankly, these are not peaceful times. We don’t have any kind of consensus on health questions. Our country is deeply divided over political issues. Some among us are hurting financially, others emotionally, and too many of us spiritually. Jesus’s answer? Take heart. Troubles will come. But in the end, I’ve got this. I have taken care of the big, really important stuff. So be at peace.
