“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ…” – (Romans 10:17, ESV)

Youth
We probably all have things we did in our younger years that we regret now that we’re older. King David wrote Psalm 25. Even though he committed grave sins, God remembered him according to His love, not David’s sins. David speaks of the descendants of the man who fears the Lord; they will inherit the land. David’s descendants lead ultimately to Jesus - He is the fulfillment of all God’s promises to Israel through David. Because of Jesus we inherit the land and all of God’s promises, despite the sins of our youth.

    Two Centurions, A Saint and More
    Series: (All)
    In 1526, in "Whether Soldiers, Too, Can Be Saved," Dr. Martin Luther answers in the affirmative.  In this morning's two Gospel Readings, we encounter two very different centurions at very different times in the life and ministry of our Lord.  Yet both display unique and spectacular faith.  Then and now, veterans had and have a special place in the heart of God.

    Faith
    Even people who seem to have strong faith sometimes doubt. This was the case even with John the Baptist. John the Baptist wondered out loud if Jesus was the Messiah. Perhaps you struggle with doubt and you wonder if you can ever be forgiven for your doubt. Jesus spoke to John’s doubts lovingly, and He speaks to our doubts in the same way

    Grounded in Grace
    Series: (All)
    Today we welcome you to our celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation.  Our theme is “Grounded in Grace,” in which we are reminded that our faith is firm because we are saved by Christ. This service’s Bible readings, hymns, prayers, sermon and children’s message will assure us that we cannot be shaken by the troubles of this world because our Savior, who died and rose for us, is the rock solid foundation of our future.  We put our trust in Him Alone.  We are saved by Grace Alone

    Priorities
    With all the things clamoring for our time and attention, it is easy for our priorities to become misplaced. We worry about temporal things more than eternal things. Jesus reminds us that the things of heaven always outweigh the worries of this world.

    Desires
    In and of themselves, desires can be good things. God has given us the ability to desire.  But as with all good gifts from God, our desires have become tainted by sin.  When we desire something God has given in a way that goes against what God has commanded, disaster results. Just ask Adam and Eve. So, how do we desire well? And how do we recover from mismanaged desires?  This is yet another area of our lives we need to "reboot."

    Finances

    Many people have financial regrets that have left them in over their heads. This is why faithful stewardship is so important! No matter how much or little you have, you can steward your resources well, even if you have stewarded them poorly in the past.

    Parenting

    One of the saddest parenting stories in the Bible is that of David and Absalom. Years of neglectful parenting finally resulted in Absalom’s rebellion and death. By the time David sees what has happened, it is too late. What can we do as parents today to escape regrets tomorrow? And how do we deal with regrets for past mistakes we have made as parents?

    Peace
    Our lives can get out of control! Jesus knew this too. When He tried to get some rest, needy crowds interrupted His plans. When the pace of life becomes too fast, how do we find rest? The short answer is not always by changing our pace, but by turning toward Christ.

    Marriage
    Marriage is meant to be a beautiful picture of how Christ loves His Church. Because of sin, however, this picture can be distorted and, tragically, sometimes even destroyed. How do we recover the picture of love God desires and has designed for our marriages? Paul answers, “Be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18).

Do you ever wish you could reboot your life like you reboot your computer? What is it that has gone wrong in your life that you wish you could go back and undo? This series will guide us in a time to reflect on what is wrong in our lives and to “reboot” with the only One who can give us a truly fresh start, Jesus Christ. In this series, we’ll look at some of life’s most common regrets and then talk about how repentance can bring forgiveness, hope, and comfort in Christ.
July 3 – September 3
Everyone struggles with experiencing the joy the Bible has promised us. Many of us, even Christians, endure life rather than enjoy life. We think the joy comes when we get to heaven, but the Bible says God created us to be joyful people beginning right now. This study in the book of Philippians will help us understand 9 different ways God wants to bring joy into our lives …
April 30 – June 18
We live in a world that is full of myths!
The most dangerous lies are the ones we believe because we don’t even know they’re not true! Sadly, our culture has bought into many lies from Satan that are downright destructive…
The grass is greener on the other side. I’m not my brother’s keeper. What’s right for you is not necessarily right for me: you have your truth and I have mine. My scale is broken.
In this series, we deconstruct some of Satan’s most popular lies so that God’s Word may not only reconstruct the truth, but bring hope to many lives.

As a Lenten lead-in to the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Standing at the Cross will focus on portions of sermons Martin Luther actually preached during Lent and Holy Week and Easter in the parishes where he served. As we stand with Luther at the foot of the cross each week, we contemplate the ways in which we stand firm in the faith as followers of Christ during this holy season.

Jan. 8 – Feb. 19
Christ is the cornerstone of our faith.  This means the foundation of our life as the people of God is built upon Him. In this series, we take a look at the teachings of Scripture that comprise the foundation of our faith and see how they center on Christ and shape our everyday lives.

The title “Keeping Christmas” is inspired by the final paragraph of Dickens’ well-known and beloved book “A Christmas Carol.”

“He had no further intercourse with Spirits, but lived upon the Total Abstinence Principle, ever afterwards; and it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God Bless Us, Every One!”

We do not know how to “keep Christmas well”, if our stress, spending, and spiritual celebrations are the evidence.  We need to know how the Lord would have us “keep,” or observe, the birth of our Savior. We will describe and discover how we, like Scrooge, have failed to keep Christmas, and how we, like he, are in need of a visitation; not by three spirits, but by the Holy Spirit, with the result that we find and celebrate what the Lord most wants us to have – and keep – this Christmas.

Is it Time to Get God Back in Focus?
Some say He’s everywhere, in everything.   Others believe He’s far away in heaven, minding His own business.  If God is always with us, why is He so hard to find?  Could it be that our “spiritual eyesight” needs a little adjusting? Join us at Redeemer by the Sea, where we’re learning to sharpen our vision.  If you can’t see God, maybe it’s time for a closer look.
Suffering savior1920x

Feb. 10 – Mar. 25, 2016

During the season of Lent, the church focuses on the humiliation of Jesus Christ, the Suffering Servant of Isaiah 53. To the unbelieving eye, His crucifixion is nothing more than a sad story of defeat. To those who believe, however, it is the joyous story of our salvation. In the humble appearance of the cross we see by faith God’s power being revealed. We see the “arm of Yahweh” outstretched once more on behalf of all people. Rather than feel sorry for Jesus during Lent, we praise and thank Him for “carrying our sorrows” and being “wounded for our transgressions,” knowing that He did all this willingly. We repent for our frequent lack of faith in the suffering and death of Jesus, as well as for our failure to see God’s glory revealed in Jesus’ humiliation on behalf of man. And we trust in the universal atonement that Jesus made through death for us and for our salvation.

Jan. 17 – Feb. 7, 2016
In this sermon series we will look at four phrases known as the “Solas” of our faith.  They summarize teachings that we as a Church affirm and believe the Scriptures teach. The phrases themselves can be traced back to the 16th Century Reformation. Each contains a form of the word “Sola” (a Latin word meaning “alone”) and summarizes a foundational truth in regards to how God saves sinners.  Join us!

What is it about the book of Revelation? It draws people to it with its mysterious intrigue – and yet people are often fearful of wading into the depths of its content.  It is our hope that through this 8 week message series at Redeemer you will come away with a better understanding of this well known, yet often avoided, book of the Bible … and that you will come away encouraged.  For all its talk of judgment and destruction, the book of Revelation is ultimately a message of hope for its hearers.

Creation vs. Evolution. Which matches the evidence we can observe and measure? At Redeemer we will spend 5 weeks looking at this topic. We’ll examine the Biblical account as well as the scientific evidence.  We’ll consider and discuss the presuppositions that shape both sides of the debate, and we’ll compare and contrast the often conflicting conclusions that are drawn.
