Welcome to the Pastor’s Page. Articles and sermons from the pastor are posted here for you to download. It is our hope that you find this page beneficial for your spiritual growth but not a substitution for regular church participation with the body of believers in your local area. Our prayer is that this resource would be one that encourages your walk with fellow believers but not as a replacement of being an active member with your local church.
 
Digital sermon recordings are available. You may request these by e-mailing beaverchurch@centurylink.net or calling (503) 398-5508 or simply click use the player below.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Appointments

If you would like to speak with Pastor Josh, please feel free to call or e-mail him for appointments. Everyone is welcome to stop by the church office, but due to the pastor’s schedule, the surest way to speak with him is to make an appointment. Please don’t hesitate if you would like to visit with him.
 

Sermons

Do not merely listen to the word and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. James 1:22
 
From the Pastor:Three convictions guide my preaching. First, I believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. As such, the Bible is without error in itself and is the only authority and foundation for all Christian doctrine and teaching.
 
Secondly, I believe that the Bible is relevant to the lives of modern Christians in practical ways.
 
Finally, it is not enough to listen to a good sermon, or to know a passage inside and out. Scripture demands response. As you listen to these sermons, or read the Bible, consider how you feel, what you should believe and how you should behave as a result of the Word. Be doers of the word and not hearers only.”

    First Sunday of Advent
    We begin Advent with a look at why we celebrate Christmas. We do not merely celebrate the birth of a baby nor even a visitation by God among men. 1 Peter reminds us of why we celebrate as Christians.

    Celebrating Christmas Rightly
    As we look forward to the beginning of Advent we consider how to rightly celebrate a holiday or season not commanded in the scripture. Particularly in light of the contentious nature of our society even concerning Christmas, we must consider how to rightly celebrate this season. Colossians two and Isaiah 58 lead us in this consideration.

    Victory
    Series: The Psalms
    In Psalm 24 we ask the question of who is fit for the presence of God. After asking this question, the Psalm switches to a celebration of God entering his city. How do the two halves of the Psalm fit together? Who can stand in God's presence? We consider these questions as we work through the Psalm.

    The Good Shepherd
    Series: The Psalms
    We consider a well loved but oft abused Psalm today - Psalm 23. We consider what it means to have the Lord be our shepherd.

    The Love of God
    Series: The Psalms
    It is easy to take incredible realities for granted - even spiritual realities. With the help of Psalm 22 we reflect on the death of Jesus upon the cross and consider some ways we, as Christians, continue to respond to this miracle.

    Speaking to God
    Series: The Psalms
    We all face the danger of treating prayer as if it is magical. Worse, we face the danger of praying thoughtlessly with no expectation that God will respond! Psalm 20 offers us a helpful reminder concerning the reality of prayer.

    The Wisdom of God
    Series: The Psalms
    David was a man who spent much time looking up at the sun and the stars as a shepherd, then a soldier, then a fugitive, and then as king. In Psalm 19 David has something to say about this and a surprising application.

    Singing with David
    Series: The Psalms
    In Psalm 18 we find a song of praise penned by David that is fairly specific to his life. Given how specific this Psalm is, how can we sing or pray it with David as our own? What part do we have in this Psalm?
