Upcoming Sermons


October 1-2, 2016 - Good News Is More Than Good Advice    
Luke 17:1-10 & Habakkuk 1:1-4; 2:1-4

The Word of God is full of good advice. We read it, we live by it, and we are blessed by it. But good advice is not Good News.  The Good News is that salvation is in Jesus Christ alone.


October 15-16, 2016 - Don’t Lose Heart  
 Luke 18:1-8 and 2 Timothy 3:14 – 4:5

In the parable this week from the Gospel of Luke, Jesus makes it clear that we should persist in prayer and not lose heart.  In an unjust and broken world, we could easily lose heart.  But God has promised to change lives through His Gospel—our lives and others—and so we persist with the hope of Jesus Christ.


October 8-9, 2016 - Mentoring … Me?  
2 Timothy 2:1-13 & Ruth 1:1-9a

Paul opens this part of his letter as a mentor to/of Timothy. Are you/we doing that today?


October 15-16, 2016 - Don’t Lose Heart    
Luke 18:1-8 and 2 Timothy 3:14 – 4:5

In the parable this week from the Gospel of Luke, Jesus makes it clear that we should persist in prayer and not lose heart.  In an unjust and broken world, we could easily lose heart.  But God has promised to change lives through His Gospel—our lives and others—and so we persist with the hope of Jesus Christ.


October 22-23, 2016 - Rescued!    
Luke 18:9-17 & 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 16-18

We are all banged up a bit by life and often feel alone in our troubles. Paul was no different. He spent his life in ministry, being poured out like a drink offering, even facing death. But as the Gospel lesson reminds us, as we pray for God’s mercy, He hears our prayers and rescues us.


October 29-30, 2016 - A Might Fortress    
Romans 3:19-28 & John 8:31-36

We treasure our Lutheran heritage. This heritage is rich in meaning and history. However, many people resist “labels,” such as Lutheran. We are not sharing a label, but Jesus Christ and His grace-filled Gospel, which sets us truly free.
