What is it like to live in a world where you don’t fit in? This Sunday we continued our series from the Gospel of Matthew – The Extraordinary Ordinary Life of the Christian. We saw how God calls us to live as wheat among the weeds. That isn’t always an easy task, but it’s also not something that the Christian has to do alone. God is with us every step of the way.
The life of a Christian can be ordinary, but don’t let the world fool you. This Sunday we begin a new sermon series – The Extraordinary Ordinary Life of a Christian. In this first message from the Gospel of Matthew we’ll see how a Christian loves God above all things. That isn’t flashy. You won’t make the papers for bearing your cross. At the end of it all, God promises a reward.
What does it mean to be God’s friend? We bear his name, he makes us part of his family, is there more? Of course! This Sunday we explore friendship and our incredible God.
This Sunday we continue with our series on the Solas of the Reformation. Sola Fide means by faith alone. What does it mean to trust in something or on this Sunday someone as important as our God? Even that trust isn’t something that we can muster in ourselves. It is a gift of God’s Spirit.
“It’s my life; I can do what I want with it.” That statement could reflect the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness that we enjoy as Americans. God has a thing or two to say about how we live our lives. After all we are not our own, we were bought at a price. This Sunday we’ll take a look at the topic of stewardship and what it means to be a Christian Steward. Exactly what does God own? Join us this Sunday and find out.
God’s gift of faith is a miracle. Whether you are washed for the first time in the waters of Baptism or you just received the Lord’s Supper again – so many times you’ve lost count – God promised to increase your faith. There are people who would do anything to increase their faith, but they can’t. Faith isn’t something that you can piece together in your heart; it is a gift of the Holy Spirit. Want to learn more about the source of faith and how you can increase yours? Join us for worship!
