Sermons on Faith

Trust vs Worry

Sermon Text: Luke 12:32-40 Trust and worry are polar opposites. Whichever gains the upper hand in this daily battle, squashes the other one in the dust. Jesus wants us to stop worrying. Since it’s hard not to worry, that’s easier said than done. But this Sunday, Jesus gives us hope in our daily battle to trust more and worry less. In fact, he gives us his promise of eliminating worry.

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…

Church Dress Code

In fact, our lesson, from Ephesians this week at St. Paul’s, speaks about what we need to wear from head to toe. It’s not running shoes, cleats, baseball hat, jeans or t-shirt. It’s not a dress or suit, either. We’ve never thought of the…

Heart Burn

You can also watch on our Vimeo page. This weekend at St. Paul’s we conclude our Summer Bible Story series with the Disciples on the Road to Emmaus. This is the one where Jesus encounters Cleopas and his buddy on Easter afternoon. At first, they didn’t know it was Jesus, but after their visit, they did and shared these interesting words, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road?” “Heartburn” is usually something…

Confirmation Sunday

Do you remember your Confirmation Day?  You were probably both excited and nervous.  Excited to profess your faith in Jesus and receive the Lord’s Supper for the first time.  Nervous because you didn’t want to give a wrong answer, or forget where to go and when to stand.   This weekend is Confirmation weekend at St. Paul’s.  The Class of 2021 at St. Paul’s will be Confirmed on Saturday, May 1.  Pray for our young Christians…

The couples who do this are expressing their appreciation for the friends they’ve invited. Today’s…
