NEW SERMON SERIES:
"IT IS TIME FOR CHRISTMAS!"
Sermon Series: “It is Time for Christmas!”
November 26, 2017 “It is Time to Capture the Moment!” There is much to focus on during Christmas. There is so much nostalgia that Christmas brings…things to recall and remember! There is a lot that happens…a lot of things that we really enjoy and look forward too. We perhaps are making plans already. But what today’s message reminds us to do is to not become so busy with the past or the future that we miss the moment of Christmas! Read Luke 10:38-42; Matthew 6:33-34; Colossians 3:2
December 3, 2017 “It is Time to Look Up and See that God is with Us!” Much is happening in the world today that is bothersome. It is very troubling to hear and see so many shootings, so many hurricanes, so much war, so much hostility to the things of God, and more. These are troubling times and we should not dismiss what is happening. That is what Jesus tells us today, and he says it is time to “Look up!” Read Luke 21:25-31
December 10, 2017 “It is Time for Peace!” We think of Christmas as a most beautiful time of the year and with good reason, but the elephant in the room is that for many people this is a very, very difficult time. It causes for them great worry and stress. It is hardly beautiful. If life was tough before, with the coming Christmas life just seems to get harder. If this is where you are, then God has a most important message to share with you today. Read Isaiah 40:1-8
December 17, 2017 Today is a very special Sunday! There is only one worship service today and it is at 9:00 AM. It is special for many reasons! Sterling Brass Band will be bringing us some incredible Christmas music. Ron Rinka will be leading us on the organ to sing some great Christmas carols. That is all special, BUT SO IS THE MESSAGE: “What is So Special about Christmas?” Read Philippians 2:5-11; John 3:16; Romans 5:8; I Peter 2:24
December 24, 2017 NO MORNING WORSHIP TODAY! CHRISTMAS EVE WORSHIP WILL BE AT 4 PM (CONTEMPORARY SERVICE WITH “THE OPEN DOORS” BAND) AND 6 PM (TRADITIONAL WORSHIP WITH JON RINKA PLAYING THE ORGAN) The sermon message is “Christmas is a Time to Focus on a Miracle!” Read Luke 2:1-20
December 25, 2017 There will be NO CHRISTMAS DAY WORSHIP SERVICE!
New Sermon Series
"The Times They Are A Changing"
December 31, 2018 “Is it Time for a Change?” We begin the New Year with a new sermon series focused on change. Are you going to make a few new resolutions? Are you ready to change some things? YOU NEED TO CHANGE! God calls us to see that battle we face between the “old” and the “new” and that none of us has fully arrived at what we need to be. Christ comes so can become new…forever! Real change can never happen without God! Are you allowing the power of God to change you? Read 2 Cor. 5:17; Philippians 3:12-14
January 7, 2018 “Real Power for Change!” Do you feel like your potential is paralyzed? Have you come to the point where you just can’t seem to do what you know needs to be done? You helplessly feel like you do not have the power to make the change that is needed? You have this fear or guilt or regret or doubt and it is paralyzing you and keeping you from what you can be! Today hear how Christ can change that! He can give you the power you have been longing for so you can move on with your life and walk like a new person. Read Luke 5:17-26
January 14, 2018 “Change the Hard Way!” Life is tough and can be overwhelming. Sometimes it feels like we are hitting our head against the wall. Have you ever felt like you were in a wrestling match to get ahead, but you continue to feel like you are losing each round? What you may not understand is that you are wrestling with God? Today we are going to look at someone who was doing that very thing. Maybe you can identify with him and learn that at the heart of your growth is first realizing that your biggest struggle in life is with God. Read Genesis 32; 1 Peter 2:9-10
January 21, 2018 “How to Cope with Change” Change can overwhelm us in life. There is too much of it and too often we are the ones caught up in the changing process. It can affect our worth, our value, and our productivity. Change can fling us along like a can being kicked down the road. Are things getting the best of you and you are starting to feel cheap, then this week’s message is for you! Read 2 Corinthians 4:16-18; Hebrews 13:8
January 28, 2018 “Changes that Matter: Breaking the Cycle” There are certain things that grab us in life and take us in all the wrong directions. We hate being held by such things but yet we give in to their grip and we are controlled. Why do you keep doing the things you know are bad for you? Why is it that you just can’t break the cycle that you are caught up in? You know you want it to be different…and it can be! Today’s message is all about that!
Read Romans 7:7-25; Proverbs 4:23; Philippians 4:8-9
February 4, 2018 “How to Break Free!” This week we take last week’s message a little further as we talk about bad habits. Let’s talk about breaking free from our bad habits. How do you do that? God’s Word gives us the advice and power we need. Read 2 Peter 2:19; Proverbs 19:3; Psalm 32:4-5; Romans 6:12-13; 2 Corinthians 1:4
February 11, 2018 “God Changes You from the Inside Out!” There is only one thing that does not change and today I want you to hear about it because it is the only Rock you have to hang on to in a changing world. What does not change is the way God sees you! What God thinks about you will not change! Once we hang on to that and understand that we can faces any and all other changes that are before us. That is what today’s worship is all about. Read Luke 19:1-10; Ephesians 2:10; Isaiah 49:16
February 18, 2018 “A Roadmap for Change!” For weeks now we have be talking about change and today we wrap it all up with a concise message entitled “A Roadmap for Change!” I pray it will be something that you will hang on to…sort of like putting that map in the glove compartment of the car. You can’t live without being in a process of change so this message is essential. Read 2 Corinthians 5:17; Phil. 3:12-14; Phil. 1:6; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Proverbs 28:13; 2 Peter 1:3-8
