1 For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, 2 and to him Abraham apportioned a tenth part of everything. He is first, by translation of his name, king of righteousness, and then he is also king of Salem, that is, king of peace. Hebrews 7:1-2
We all long for peace. How can we live in a land characterized by peace? Not without knowing its King. In this sermon we explore the mysterious character of Melchizedek who points us to Jesus, King of righteousness, King of peace, and our priest forever. Delivered to the Galena Bible Church by pastor Chris Kopp, Sunday July 13th, 2014.

We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, (Hebrews 6:19)Ever wonder why a one year old baby can run down the hall naked and everyone laughs, but when a 40 year old does that...well its not looked upon well. When does that change happen. There are certain expectations in maturity that follow normal life. It is no different in our Christian growth. You aught to look and act a lot different after having walked with Christ for a longer period of time. In this sermon we look at Hebrews 5:11-6 and what it means to have a childlike faith rather than a childish faith. Delivered to the Galena Bible Church, Sunday July 6th, 2014.

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.
What does it mean that Jesus was tempted as we are? It means Jesus was tempted to despair, rage, lust, be prideful, arrogant, deceitful, irreverent, and unholy. Yet throughout all his temptation he was without sin. Therefore he knows our struggles, can empathize with our weakness, and draws us to the throne of God's grace. In this sermon we look at Hebrews 4:14-5:10 and see what Jesus does as our high priest.

Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us fear lest any of you should seem to have failed to reach it. For good news came to us just as to them, but the message they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united by faith with those who listened.
Rest is something that we crave as human beings. And according to Scripture, Jesus is our rest. In this sermon we look at what it means for us to find our rest in Christ alone.

How's your summer going? Ours has been up until this point far beyond excellent. I think that's in part to the fact that anything we got to this summer was going to be an improvement to what we didn't get to do last summer. We said goodbye to our students and school faculty in late May and began preparing for the massive rotating group of awesome volunteers that have been cycling through. I was able to be the camp speaker for a week at the Unalakleet Covenant Bible Camp and met some amazing staff who will be serving there all summer.
The Bible Church is experiencing our normal summer slump in regular attendees, but thanks to the volunteers we have a pretty packed house. We are going through the Book of Hebrews and I'd invite you to join alone with the sermons weekly.
Things you can be praying for:
- safety for volunteers.
- provision for volunteers to work on church projects.
- wisdom and continued favor as we seek to plant churches outside Galena.
- boarding school students who are having a challenging Summer
