Sermons from December 2020

New Year’s Eve Worship

You can also watch on our Facebook page. As we shut down one year, we’re going to open up another one, at least the first seven weeks with a sermon/worship series. Tonight’s “New Year’s Check Up” will be an overview of 2 Peter 1:5-8, where the Apostle stresses the importance of growing and strengthening our faith. The best way to do that is by exercising our faith. To grow our Christian faith we’re going to take one of the words…

God Cares for His Children – Christmas 1 Worship

You can also watch on our Facebook page. God cares for his children. That’s not new news. He cared for his nation – the Children of Israel, though they were rebellious. He cares for us, his adopted children – even though we’re sinners and don’t deserve it. God cared for us by sending his Son to deliver us from the corruption of sin and transform us into his children. The message of Christmas is still Christ’s coming that makes us…

Christmas Day Worship

You can also watch on our Facebook page. Christmas traditions – every family has them and Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without them, or so we think. As we get ready to celebrate Christmas 2020 there are things that won’t be the same – the holiday meal, the gift exchange, the family gathering, the children’s Christmas Eve service … to name a few. That doesn’t mean we stop Christmas, or our celebration of it. We just need to get…

Christ the Crusher

You can also watch on our Facebook page. For people who lived in the small communities south of Milwaukee, “The Crusher” was a household name. He was part of one of the first professional wrestling group, and he called South Milwaukee, Wisconsin home. His massive hands and brute strength allowed him to crush just about anything. No, we aren’t honoring “The Crusher” this weekend, but our worship at St. Paul’s centers around someone nicknamed “The Head Crusher.” In Genesis chapter…

Jesus our King

You can also watch on our Facebook page. Did you know that your Savior has a tattoo? He sure does. Because he fought your enemies for you on the cross and will continue to fight for you each day and in every way, he’s earned another title: “On his thigh he has this name written: King of kings” (Revelation 19). That makes the King of kings your king! In addition to fighting your enemies of sin, death and Satan, he…

Jesus our Priest

You can also watch on our Facebook page. Quick, give me the name of a priest in the Bible … any priest Old or New Testament? Prophets we know. Kings we know. But priests? Did you come up with Aaron, Moses’ brother? Or, Zechariah, John the Baptist’s father? Or those bad guys at Jesus’ trial, Caiaphas and his father-in-law, Annas? This weekend’s worship at St. Paul’s will add the name of another priest – Melchizedek. Maybe you’ve heard of him,…
