Below are four links to each of the recent sermons in:
  1. graphic file readily displayable on your browser screen;
  2. textual form in a PDF file;
  3. audio form of the sermon only in a WMA file (Windows Media Audio) playable with a sound card, speakers, and Microsoft Windows Media Player software (free);
  4. the whole worship service -- including the sermon -- in WMA file format.

The link to the "PDF" files provides a format which is viewable/printable using the Adobe Acrobat Reader program. The PDF form is a larger file and requires more time to download to your computer.    If you do not have a broadband connection to the internet (DSL, Cable, or other high speed internet connection), you'll probably prefer the "graphic file" (not the PDF) text version of the sermon files.  

If you do not have the latest version of the Adobe Acrobat Reader program installed on your computer (to view the PDF file), you may download the program for free from Adobe's site by clicking on the logo below.
