Everyone’s Welcome To the Table

David wrote in Psalm 23, “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.”  Jesus invites us to the Lord’s table where we gather to eat his true body for the forgiveness of sins.  Christians gather regularly around the table at potlucks and family dinners to fellowship together and encourage each other.  And then, there’s heaven. God’s table evokes images of salvation, story-telling, satisfaction, and singing – joy beyond the most amazing spread. But you probably have…

Generosity in Mission

Our building is an important aspect of our church; we use our facilities to worship and grow in faith with one another. But, our mission doesn’t stop at the end of our driveway. God calls us to take care of the lost – those who do not know Him. Because of God’s generosity to us, we can’t help ourselves but to show generosity to others in our local and global community. Luke 19:10

Faith Doesn’t Make Excuses

Following Jesus isn’t easy. By nature, we’re way too good at excuses. Lying underneath these excuses is fear. Lord, give me the faith to trust that listening to and following You is always the best answer. Sermon Text: Luke 9:51-62

Faith Believes that Dying is to Live

Christians have the best attitude about life and death. Every day is a joy, because we have a purpose – to live for Christ. And when we die? That’s even better by far. Philippians 1:18b-26

Qualified

“Christian-killer” doesn’t seem impressive on an apostle’s resume. Yet, that is who Jesus chose to grow his Church. Paul was an unlikely candidate to become a Christian, much less an apostle of Christ. In the same way, you might consider yourself under-qualified for the mission of Jesus’ Church, but God loves to be glorified through unexpected servants. Acts 9:1-20
church, Franklin, WI, Act 2

Transformed

Jesus gave a mission to his followers left on earth to share the good news with all creation and proclaim Jesus as King. In the same way, the Ascended Jesus is sending every member of his Church on a mission to transform lives through the message of his grace. Acts 1:1-11

New Year Revolution: Purpose

The world teaches us that the best thing we can be doing is looking out for ourselves, promoting ourselves, satisfying ourselves. We weren’t created for this kind of living. Sooner or later it leaves us feeling empty and listless. Jesus was other-focused in his life and in his death. This is what we were created for. This changes everything for us. Sermon Text: 2 Timothy 1:8-10

Meaning: Why Are We Here?

Am I here to have fun? Am I here to somehow make the world a better place? Is there no way for me to know why I’m really here? The answers we come up with aren’t really satisfying. In the end what I come up with seems so, well, meaningless. But when the Bible talks about why we’re here, it makes sense. I begin to see that I have meaning and purpose that reaches far beyond myself and this broken world. Sermon Text:  Genesis 2:8-25

Origin: Where Did We Come From?

Am I just here by chance, a random lucky draw of the straw? Is there nothing special about me other than the fact that the genetic mutations of my ancestors produced the “me” I am today? God says “No.” God says that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wow! That changes everything. Sermon Text: Genesis 2:4-7

Empty Life

When we’re looking for meaning and purpose in life, the empty tomb shows us how to work for things that really last. Sermon Text: Philippians 3

The One to Follow (Purpose)

There are many different philosophical life-views out there; none as compelling and life-hanging as Jesus’ call: Follow me! Sermon Text: Matthew 4:12-23

Body Building

The Holy Spirit deals out spiritual gifts just as they are needed for the well-being of Christ’s church. That means that every person is essential.
