Strength in our Struggles

Sermon Text: 2 Corinthians 11:21-30 A fair-weather fan is one who only follows a team when their team is winning. When their team struggles, the fan gives up on them. A fair-weather follower is one who only follows Christ when things are running smoothly. But when life becomes a struggle, it’s an excuse to give up on Jesus. “Strength for Our Struggles” is our worship theme this Sunday. It’s also what the Apostle Paul found in the epistles God inspired…

Father’s Day

Sermon Text: Mark 9:14-27 Join us at St. Paul’s on Father’s Day as we look into the Bible story of a father who will do whatever it takes to help his demon-possessed son. That reminds us of our heavenly Father who did whatever it took to help our souls get released from Satan’s clutches. Jesus healed the demon-possessed boy by the power of his Word. What’s surprising is that when the gospel (the good news about Jesus) comes out of…

Divine Math

Sermon Text: Isaiah 6:1-8 How can 3 be 1, or 1 be 3? Let’s call it divine math! And no matter how awesome your math skills are, the Bible’s teaching of the Trinity is beyond our limited human understanding. One God, yet three persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) is a mystery intended to comfort the believer.

Forever Home

Sermon Text: Revelation 21 HGTV, the Magnolia Network and other DIY shows have used the term “Forever Home” to describe a home they’re building, renovating or remodeling? It’s a home where a couple will spend their entire adult life. The “Forever Home” concept isn’t unique, or even new. God has been talking about it ever since he created the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve’s sin interrupted God’s original plan. Join us this Sunday as we look at the “Forever…

Milestones

Young Christians wearing white gowns with red stoles and a red carnation! It must be Confirmation Sunday at St. Paul’s! This Sunday, nine young Christians will answer questions on what they’ve learned from God’s Word. They’ll promise their love and loyalty to their Lord. And, they’ll receive the Lord’s Supper for the forgiveness of their sins and the strengthening of the faith they’re professing. What an exciting time for them and for God’s people. Celebrate this milestone in their young…

First Words

The first words are often memorable. Parents remember the first words their child spoke. What were the first words when Neil Armstrong stepped foot on the moon? Because Jesus defeated our arch-enemies of sin, Satan and death we actively participate in Christ’s triumph. Easter is more than a day. It is seven triumphant weeks of joy. That’s why it is vital to our spiritual health to remember the first words Jesus spoke after he rose.

I Want to Know

Sermon Text: Philippians 3 When we want to learn things we can either “Google” it, or pull up a YouTube Video. Back in the Apostle Paul’s day the internet wasn’t quite what it is today. So if Paul wanted to know something had to either listen or experience it. This Sunday, he invites us say, “I Want to Know Christ,” right along with him so we never ever forget where our salvation comes from.

Who Am I?

Sermon Text: Exodus 3:1-15 “Moses and the Burning Bush” is a rather bizarre Bible Story.  It’s about a bush that burns, but doesn’t burn up.  And, it’s about a bush that speaks. Join us this Sunday at St. Paul’s as we learn some important truths about the Lord’s name and ourselves from Moses’ encounter with the Burning Bush.
