Pastor Andy starts a new series on prayer, the most important thing we can do as Christians to experience the love of God, to have a victorious faith, and to accomplish the Great Commission. Each message in the series is paired with a popular worship song that parallels the theme of the Scripture. This week’s sermon is on the Lord’s Prayer in the Gospel of Luke.
What is the best part of knowing Jesus? Some might say forgiveness. Others, freedom from addiction. Still others would say it’s the peace and joy they’ve found in Christ. And most would probably say the promise of eternal life is the best part of knowing Jesus. While all those things are true and good, Pastor Andy preaches from Luke 10:38-42 to show us what the best part of knowing Jesus truly is.
Pastor Alex Unis continues the Christmas Songs series with a message from Luke 2:29-32. God answered an old man’s prayer by allowing Simeon to see Jesus on His first visit to the temple at just eight days old. Simeon had waited decades to see God’s salvation, and was overjoyed to meet the Lord. How patiently do we wait on God? And are we filled with joy when He answers our prayers?
Pastor Andy continues our series looking at the original Christmas songs recorded in the Bible. In Luke 2:14, the angels sang, "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth, peace to those on whom his favor rests." This leads us to ask who are those on whom God's favor rests? Am I someone who is favored by God? How can I be included in that group and receive God's peace this Christmas?
Pastor Andy begins a new sermon series called Christmas Songs, where we study together the original songs of Christmas. The first Christmas music was composed a couple thousand years ago and written in Scripture. These Christmas songs from the Bible will help us make this Christmas season a time of worship, with family, friends, food, and shopping filling their appropriate roles under the Lord Jesus Christ.
