He is risen! This news changes everything, and for Christians, is a celebration of God’s New Creation that is already bursting forth here and now. In this Resurrection Sunday teaching Josh and special guest Randal Collins invite us to see the Resurrection at work in us now, giving us life before death. The tomb is empty and this is definitely good news, right here and right now!
Ash Wednesday 2013
Each year at Morgantown Community Church we begin our observance of Lent with an Ash Wednesday service. During this gathering, we sing, read scripture and corporate prayers, take communion, and receive the ‘imposition of ashes’. As part of our preparation for communion and the imposition of ashes, Josh offers a few brief words on why Ash Wednesday is important. This culminates with the ‘Litany of Penitence’, which Josh and Jennifer Davis lead us through.
Mother’s Day 2012
This morning, we’re taking a break from our current series to focus on how our church ministers to families. Pastor Josh Scott is joined by our Director of Children’s Ministry, Adra Skaggs as we discuss how to create an “orange” environment. To have a loving “Red” home life, and a “Yellow” church that shares the light of Christ, creating a balanced “Orange” experience to grow in.
Hope From The Ashes – Ash Wednesday
We being this 2012 season of Lent on Ash Wednesday with confession and repentance together as a body of believers.

We can have hope that at the end of this season, resurrection is coming.
I AM – Week 8 – The Resurrection and The Life – Easter Sunday
The tomb is empty! On Resurrection Sunday, we remember and celebrate the central truth of the Christian faith: Christ is risen, He is risen indeed! During this final message of our “I AM” series, Pastor Josh Scott reminds us that resurrection means that we should never stop hoping, because God does his best work when everything seems to be hopeless.
Good Friday – Tearing the Curtain
In the Jewish Temple there was a curtain that separated the rest of the Temple from the “Most Holy Place,” which is the place where the presence of God was believed to dwell. After Jesus dies on the cross, this curtain is torn in two, from top to bottom. During this message Pastor Josh Scott explains the significance of this moment for us today, and invites us to embrace what it means for us.
