Seeing Jesus

A Series of Sermons For Lent

This year during Lent our focus is on “Seeing Jesus” as the Promised One who comes to redeem us and set us free from sin and death and hell.  There is also a daily devotional that accompanies the series which we invite you to use to help personalize and apply what you hear for your own life of faith, hope, and love.  Go to our Resources link and click on Devotionals.

During the season of Epiphany we highlighted the mission of the church.  In these troubled times in which we currently live, our desire is to stay true to what God has called the church to be and to do.  So we spent  a few weeks re-emphasizing what the mission is, and how we continue to pursue it together even in the midst of a pandemic.

Previously, during the season of Advent and Christmas, we “awaited the birth of Christ” by looking at a variety of birth narratives in the Bible.  The sermon series was called, “Awaiting the Child.”  Check them out below, along with the previous sermons from earlier in the Fall which are outlined as follows.

In September, we began the Fall with a short series of sermons on “Hearing and Heeding the Words of God.”  In particular, our focus was on those words by which God calls His people to live justly, and love mercy, and walk humbly with Him.  (Micah 6:8)  

In October we began a new series of sermons on “The Armor of God,” from the Apostle Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians 6:10-20.  We are living in a time of great conflict and polarazation.  It is a time of global upheaval, politically, economically, socially, environmentally….  It’s easy to wake up every day feeling defeated, but you don’t even know who or what the enemy is that’s defeating you.  In this series of sermons we are reflecting on Paul’s words in Ephesians 6 about the “spiritual battle” being waged all around us, and on the “armor” God has given us so that we can stand our ground in the battle, and not be defeated.
