SERMON SERIES

Grace for the Generations

The Bible says that "the Lord is good; His steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations” (Psalm 100:5). In this sermon series, we will encounter God's love and faithfulness as they come through unexpected places like a sinful judge, a Moabite woman, and a barren mother. We will be reminded that if he gave his grace to those generations, he will give his grace to us as well.

Holy Week

Jesus redefined Israel’s expectations of what the Messiah would look like. Instead of a conquering King for one nation, he was the eternal living King for all nations. This world is full of darkness, but we can have hope if we place our faith in the light and promise of Jesus, who gave us eternal life. This sermon series on Holy Week reminds us that Jesus is who he claimed to be and gives us hope that is essential to living the Christian life in this broken world.

Seeking God's Presence

The English word “Lent” is a shortened form of the Old English word lencten, meaning “lengthening” of days, or springtime. Originally this word had no spiritual meaning. During the Middle Ages (ca. 600-1500) individual congregations began to observe a 40 day fast in this spring season. The movement grew. Eventually, most of the Christian world would take time leading up to the three holiest days in the church calendar (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter) to seek Jesus first. Though some practices may have changed, Lent in the 21st century remains essentially the same as in centuries past: a time of quiet reflection and spiritual discipline. This year worldwide, more Christians will observe Lent than ever. Let us join this great cloud of witnesses in seeking first Jesus kingdom and Jesus righteousness (Matt 6:33).

Faith and Failure

The New Testament describes the church’s life in the present age as being “in the wilderness.” A Christian is one who has been delivered out of the bondage of sin and brought through the waters of baptism into the pilgrim life of the church, journeying to the promised new heavens and earth. In the wilderness, Christ nourishes us through the ministry of word and sacrament, supplying us with the grace to press onward in joyful hope.
