The Best for Last

To “Save the best for last” sounds like a good idea, especially if there are difficulties, challenges and bumps on the road along the way. Join us Sunday because in our Gospel reading Jesus reminds us of the ultimate way he “Saves the best for last.”

Are you wise?

You can also watch on our Vimeo page. Sermon Text: Matthew 2:1-12 Wisemen! The Bible tells us that a group of “Wisemen” or Magi visited Jesus as a child in Bethlehem. These Magi set out for a land … they didn’t know. Following a star … they didn’t know. Looking for a King … they didn’t know. They don’t sound very wise, do they? But the Bible describes them as “Wisemen.” Join this Sunday as we celebrate the Wisemen’s visit…

For some it’s the day they were diagnosed with cancer, or the day they got into that accident. For others, it’s the day they got that job, or the day they got married.

Little Town of Bethlehem/Sunday School Kids

You can also watch on our Vimeo page. The Tree of Life is one of two trees God singled out and named in the Garden of Eden. The other one is the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

This Sunday we are going to revisit the Tree of Life in Genesis, and when it pops up again…

Christ the King

You can also watch on our Vimeo page. Last weekend we stood in a courtroom and heard the “Judge’s” gavel slam down as he spoke the verdict “Not Guilty!” This weekend we find ourselves in a throne room and listen to a “King” express his deepest desire that we join him as citizens of his kingdom. Join us at St. Paul’s this Sunday and find out how this is not just possible, it is a reality. Sermon Text: John 18:33-37
