How Long is Eternity?
Sermon Text: Psalm 112 How long is forever? That’s a question asked by both children and adults. Danny is waiting for his mom’s blueberry pie to bake and it’s “taking forever.” That may seem like it, but that’s not even close. This Sunday, the Bible Story of the Rich Man and Lazarus has us contemplate the final destination of every person: Heaven or Hell. Both will last forever. Join us and find out more from Pastor Heath Butler, who brings…
Sermon Text: Psalm 127 Family! The topic of “Family” brings with it all kinds of interesting comments. They are a target for jokes. They are a collection of goofballs. They are irreplaceable. Are they in-laws, or out-laws? We can’t imagine life without them. “Family” is all of the above, and more. This Sunday’s worship theme as we celebrate Christian Education is simply “Family!” We’ll talk about how “Family” can mean three different things. Each is a blessing from God.

This weekend’s worship at St. Paul’s will add the name of another priest – Melchizedek. Maybe you’ve heard of him,…

One of the most comforting and heart-warming pictures in all of Scripture is that of Jesus as the Good Shepherd. That’s quite amazing since none of us are familiar with the occupation of tending sheep. And yet, we love the Twenty-third Psalm. We love to sing “I Am Jesus’ Little Lamb” even…
A Blessed Nation
Psalm 33 The Word of God on Independence Weekend focuses on the nation we proudly call “the land of the free and the home of the brave.” The psalmist tells us that a nation where the LORD is God is blessed. Let’s see if we can determine whether we are “A Blessed Nation?” The psalmist offers 2 choices: A) With God there are abundant blessings. B) Without God there’s an absence of blessings.
