Sunday Morning Sermon Series:
“Who is Jesus?”
beginning Sunday, January 20, 2019

This is a question that is oftentimes asked in today’s world.  Teacher.  Religious Activist.  Good man.  Liar and lunatic.  These are but a small handful of the answers offered up by the world. But what about you? Who do you say Jesus is? This is the question Jesus turned towards His disciples, “Who do you say I am?” Today, it’s still the question our Lord is asking His Church.  And you! Through this sermon series we will discover what God’s Word says in response to this question.  And more, we will learn the transformative and wonderfully true answer that directs our relationships and defines our future.

Voices from the Edge: Advent Encounters Preparing the Way
 

Advent has long been a time of preparation, preparation for the celebration of Christmas. Yet the road to Christmas is anything but easy. It twists, it turns, and we meet many strange figures along the way. Prophets cry out in visions. John the Baptizer preaches in the desert. Angels appear whether you are asleep or awake. The voices are varied, the places are strange, but one thing is certain: in each encounter, God is preparing us for the celebration of the greatest encounter of all, the birth of Jesus, his Son, our Savior, the Redeemer of the world.      

 

Family life. It can be the best of times and—let’s be honest—it can be the worst of times. Consider these family facts:

  • You don’t need remote control for your TV. If you have children, the chances of controlling anything are already remote.
  • More ominous than the sound of an approaching riot is the sound of children suddenly quiet.
  • A survey of marriage counselors has uncovered this bit of data: no marriage can survive white carpeting.

Everyone needs godly wisdom when it comes to family relationships. That’s why, as we begin a new church year, we plan to learn from the families connected with our Lord’s birth. This includes Joseph, Mary, and Jesus, along with Zechariah, Elizabeth, and John. These families faced infertility, frustration, loss, misunderstandings, death, and so much more. You are encouraged to be a part of these worship services. Your family is worth time and investment in God’s word!

 
 
Sermon Series Beginning
January 7, 2018

 

Epiphany has often been noted as “the season of light,” a time honoring Jesus as “The Light of the World” who has come to us! This series will provide us with an opportunity to see the continuity reflected for us throughout God’s Word – from the Old Testament to the New- that our God creates, invites, leads, liberates, and lives to bring the light of salvation to ALL people, everywhere! 

 

In consideration of passages such as Matthew 5:14-16 where we hear Jesus say, “You are the light of the world…let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven,” we will also learn about our Lord’s invitation to carry His light to our families, friends, neighbors, co-workers, classmates, and so on! Let there be light!

 
 
Beginning Sunday, December 3:
Hope Rises
 
 
This series will note the ways in which St. Luke highlights various elements of HOPE within his Gospel account. Each Gospel reading portrays for us an element of hope meant not only for Luke’s audience but for us today, particularly as they focus on the person and work of Jesus FOR US. Advent allows us to give pause to the busyness and stress of our schedules to acknowledge the first coming (advent) of Christ, while anticipating His Second Coming!
 
 
 
Wednesday Midweek Sermon Series: Here, with Us

Wednesday Midweek Sermon Series: Here, with Us

 

This series will help us in our Advent preparations as we await the return of our Heavenly King, Jesus.  Through John 1:1-14 we see a divine plan set in motion for each one of us, who through grace, are brought into a life-saving, life-changing relationship with Jesus- the Word of God wrapped in flesh! We will also take a look at some of the themes that emerge from this passage- trust, the promise of a plan for each of us in Jesus, preparing for Jesus’ appearance/return, the grace of God that would see God Himself being WITH us, etc.

RE:Form Into God’s Image
 
 
 
 
Completed
 

It is hard to believe that 500 years have passed by since a man by the name of Martin Luther stood in the strength of the Spirit and opposed the abuses of Church of his time.  In many ways, the Church and its leaders had veered off-course and away from the heart of God’s Word for His people.  What was needed was a Reformation of the Church.  Its leaders.  Its practices.  Its heart.  Today, through the working of the Holy Spirit and the Word, God calls out to His Church and to each one of us: be reformed daily into God’s image, His plan, and His purposes for life!

New Sermon Series and Adult Bible class

 
Join us, beginning Sunday April 23, 2017 as we explore A.D.
A 12-Week Study through the New Testament Book of Acts.  Witness the events that occurred on the heels of Jesus’ Resurrection and discover how the Holy Spirit-led actions of the Apostles and Early Church changed the world.
 
The Story2
 
‘The Greatest Story Ever Told’ is more than just a cliché.
God goes to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people.  That is what The Story is all about – the story of the Bible, God’s great love affair with humanity.  Condensed into 31 accessible chapters, The Story sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation.
 

Here too we will be taking time to explore The Story (and God’s Word) on a deeper, personal, and more meaningful level that will shape us to be the Church God desires for us to be: at home, our places of work, in our schools and neighborhoods, AND to the Mission Field He has planted us in within our portion of Fort Wayne!

“This is your story.  This is my story.  Most of all it is God’s Story!”The Story

 We will look forward to seeing you.
