Look at What Jesus Gave Us!

Sermon on John 15:26-27, 16:4b-11 for Pentecost, May 17 & 20, 2018 On the bulletin’s news-sheet this week there’s an announcement about a special coffee fellowship on June 3. One teacher is retiring, another is going to serve at a different school. We had a similar coffee fellowship and recognition a month ago for our…

The Risen Christ Protects His Disciples

Sermon on John 17:11b-19 for the 7th Sunday of Easter, May 13, 2018 In the name of our risen and ascended Lord Jesus, dear friends, To say that the world and society we live in is dangerous would be an understatement.  As a matter of fact, every day is stacked with danger; things go wrong…

God Lives In Us

Faith Makes Jesus Known

A Sermon on Acts 3:11-20 for the 3rd Sunday of Easter, April 12/15, 2018. Have you ever had that “aha” moment happen in your life? The time, after many struggles with something, it all of a sudden becomes crystal clear. For me, it often happened in math class. A certain concept just would not stick….

Jesus Himself Is Our Peace

Sermon on John 20:19-31 for the Second Sunday of Easter, April 5 & 8, 2018 Jesus greeted his disciples with the words, “Peace be with you.” How would you define the word peace? I think most people would define peace by talking about what peace is not. Peace is the opposite of war, …or the…

The Empty Tomb Brings Joy

A Sermon on John 20:1-18 for Easter Festival Services, April 1, 2018. Happiness. Everyone wants it. Everyone looks for it. We do not wake up in the morning hoping that happiness will elude us. We do not want to live a life void of all joy. Even as we go through rough patches in our…

It Is Finished!

Sermon on John 19:17-30 for Good Friday, Midday, March 30, 2018 “Carrying his own cross, [Jesus] went out to the what is called the Place of the Skull, which in Aramaic is called Golgotha.” That may sound matter-of-fact that Jesus carried his own cross. It probably wasn’t the whole cross but the crossbar, the horizontal piece, about…

Jesus Invites Us to a Feast

A Sermon on I Corinthians 10:16-17 for Maundy Thursday, March 29, 2018. Many of us might be getting ready to head out to a restaurant on Sunday to enjoy Easter Brunch.

Repentance Is Healing, Healing Is Repentance

Sermon on Isaiah 1:2-20, John 8:2-11 for the Confessional Service for Holy Week, March 27, 2018 A long time ago—I must have been about nine years old—I had my first experience with Novocain at the dentist. It made my lip feel like rubber, like it wasn’t a part of me, so what did I do? I started…

Jesus Gives Us Reasons to Rejoice

A sermon on Zechariah 9:9-10 for Palm Sunday, March 25, 2018. A hush falls over the crowd. Everyone holds their breath. The suspense grows as to what will happen next.

Jesus Defines Glory

Sermon on John 12:20–33 for the Fifth Sunday in Lent, March 18, 2018 How do you define “glory”? Glory can mean praise. “Give glory to God” means the same thing as “Give praise to God.” But there’s more to “glory” than praise. “Glory” also means giving credit where credit is due. God said, “I will not give…

We Need to See Things From God’s Point of View

A sermon on Mark 8:31-38 for the 2nd Sunday in Lent, February 25, 2018. A parent and child cannot agree. All the child wants is to go out with their friends and have a little extra time added to their curfew. In their mind it is no big deal. All the friends will be doing…
