Sermon Notes

Memory Verse: Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Sermon Text: Luke 19:28-48

28 And when he had said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29 When he drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olivet, he sent two of the disciples, 30 saying, “Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say this: ‘The Lord has need of it.’” 32 So those who were sent went away and found it just as he had told them. 33 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 And they said, “The Lord has need of it.” 35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36 And as he rode along, they spread their cloaks on the road. 37 As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38 saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” 39 And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” 40 He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”

41 And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, 42 saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side 44 and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

45 And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold, 46 saying to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a den of robbers.”

47 And he was teaching daily in the temple. The chief priests and the scribes and the principal men of the people were seeking to destroy him, 48 but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people were hanging on his words.

Welcome to Twin Villages Church! We're a small group of Christ-followers who are excited to continue growing a gathering of believers in downtown Damariscotta-Newcastle, in beautiful midcoast Maine.

In 2017, God led Pastor Phil Nicewonger and his family to be sent out from the First Baptist Church of Waldoboro, where Phil served for nearly nine years. As of June 1, 2017, Phil completed his transition out of FBCW and into the role of church planter for Twin Villages Church.

We've enjoyed growing in our faith and serving our community from our 15 Courtyard Street location for our first two years, and now we're excited to have moved to 40 Church Street, former home of the United Methodist Church. We look forward to what God will do through TVC in the days ahead, and we invite you to join us on this journey!

Our gatherings are informal and Christ-centered, blending contemporary and classic worship styles for newborns through 80s. Our heart and soul is to introduce and connect people with the living, loving, and powerful God.

We'd love to meet you! Come check us out this SUNDAY where you can meet us and see if Twin Villages Church would be a good fit for you!

We exist to... grow in Christ,
love like Christ, live for Christ.

 — The church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit to continue the task of reaching those who have not yet believed and discipling those who have, helping them become fully devoted followers of Christ. —

Ephesians 4:1-16

This Is You Making a Difference!

  •  I have lived near this area my whole life, and it is such a blessing to me to be able to attend Twin Villages Church and be a part of the amazing things that God is doing through this new church!

  •  I love the Sunday teaching with Pastor Phil and the way he brings Scripture to life, and how he provides practical application each week upon which we can ponder and act.

  •  Food and friends always go well together! It is so encouraging each week to have an informal time to share conversation with others over a Sunday breakfast or lunch.

  •  I greatly appreciate the small groups and studies that provide a sense of caring and stability when stressing events come our way. Close friends are invaluable to daily life.

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty; for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all.
