Where Do You Stand?

Dr. Jonathan Sloan gives a sermon about how the reformation changed the Christian faith and what it means to be a member of the reformed Church. We have great freedom based on Luther’s firm stance.

Life is… Christ

Dr. Jennifer Blake gives a sermon about the Christian Life, based on Philippians 1:21-30 (link).

*Call to Worship
If we truly live and walk as Christ desires;
then life is a pleasurable journey which leads us to eternity.
If we truly love and believe as Christ desires;
then death is the joyful path which brings us to the Lord.
We are called to live a life of service to others in the name of Jesus; to live for Him and to each other. We are called to die to sin and to one day be gathered together with the Lord.
Let us worship God!

*Prayer of Confession
Dear Lord, sometimes we see life as a difficult challenge that we are unable to handle; but as hard as life may be, we fear death for ourselves and our loved ones. We seek ways to fill our lives with happiness, instead of finding joy that only You can give. We curse death instead of Praising you for eternal life in Your presence. Help us to see life as a gift given to us to learn to grow, to bless and be blessed. Help us to see death as a reward for living a life dedicated to You, to praise the One who saves, for saving us…

*Assurance of Pardon
Jesus knew His life would be difficult and His death would be painful; but in dying He not only escaped His suffering, but He saved us from eternal pain through His forgiveness and the promise of Heaven.
Thanks be to God!

Forgiven and Forgiving

Dr. Jonathan Sloan gives a sermon about forgiveness, based on Matthew 18:21-35 (link).

*Call to Worship
Sometimes our debts can seem overwhelming;
no matter how hard we work, there seems to be no end.
Sometimes it seems easier to hide from our obligations than to face them;
but when we face our liabilities, we open ourselves to freedom from them.
Eventually all our faults, all that we are accountable for, come into the light. As we gather this day, let us reveal our souls to the grace of God, giving us the strength to spread that grace into the lives of others.
Let us worship God!

*Prayer of Confession
Dear Lord, as we call to mind our sins, help us to recall those who have sinned against us. As we ask for Your forgiveness, help us to forgive others. Just as we often feel unworthy of Your mercy, we often forget that those who have wronged us may also feel undeserving. Open our eyes to see our faults, open our mouths to ask for forgiveness, open our hearts to accept Your mercy, and to grant Your forgiveness onto others, not just once, not twice, but always…

*Assurance of Pardon
Jesus died to forgive sin:sins past, present and those yet to be committed. His great sacrifice is not to be hoarded and used for personal benefit; it is to be eagerly shared.
Thanks be to God!

Together

Dr. Jonathan Sloan gives a sermon about our togetherness as fellow believers in the body of Christ, based on Ephesians 4:15-16 (link).

*Call to Worship
We enter church this morning as individuals;
but as we gather, we become one.
One body, one mind, one spirit;
woven together with Jesus as our head.
We come today to be united in something larger than ourselves, a fellowship of believers, striving to be examples of Christ’s love, as we grow in faith.
Let us worship God!

*Prayer of Confession
Dear Lord, we are often overwhelmed in life, we feel so small in the midst of great problems, large obstacles and unending confusion. We fear standing against the masses and we keep silent when we should be shouting out Your Word. Help us to see ourselves as part of a whole; as one of many; as an extension of You. Help us be willing to speak truth and to stand tall against even the most formidable foe. Help us to always remember that we are never alone when we walk the path You have chosen and share the message You have put on our lips…

*Assurance of Pardon
Jesus did not walk the road to Calvary alone; He was leading His followers to salvation, to mercy and forgiveness. He continues to lead us as we lead others.
Thanks be to God!
