The Cross

Just so that you know what you are in for this weekend at St. Paul’s.  Our attention is going to be glued to the most recognizable of all Christian symbols – the cross.  St. Paul’s Church was designed in the shape of a cross.  And, as you enter the worship space your eyes can’t help but look up at the cross, the largest object in our church.  Yes, Jesus died on the cross to provide our forgiveness.  In today’s lesson,…

Why me?

Why me? Why am I going through this? Every Christian asks themselves these questions over the course of their life. We ask out loud because we are anticipating some answer to make sense of our lives lived as followers of Jesus. This Sunday’s lessons shine a light on some of God’s answers to those questions. Join us to find out that our God always has a reason. He sent His Son to this world of sinners for a purpose. He…

In a recent Gallup poll, 55% of Americans believe the devil is real. God’s Word would tell us that the devil is 100% real. He also has a group of fallen angels called demons that are also very real, plenteous, and dangerous.

We’d much rather have peace. So we deal with situations by either hiding them or ignoring them. Join us and see why confrontation is absolutely necessary. Find out how confrontation saved the Apostle Paul, and how it can save you too.

Star Trek

OK all you Trekkies out there, fans of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock and the Klingons, when did Star Trek, the TV series, begin?  1959, 1966, or 1971?  The crew of the Starship Enterprise may have taken off in 1966, but 2,000 years earlier, there was another crew that did some star trekking of their own. They weren’t boldly going in search of new worlds; they were searching for a child, a new-born King.  Join us to learn from the “original”…
