Joy in Your Attitude
Joy begins with three words. Some people think joy begins with the three words “work is over.” Some people think that joy begins with the three words “dinner is ready.” Some people think that joy begins with the three words “stocks are up.” Some think joy starts with the pleasures that come into their lives, and so joy begins with the three words “I got it.” That’s not where joy begins. Joy begins with the three words “Jesus is Lord.

    Joy in your Circumstances
    Today we continue our series on the epistle of JOY – Philippians.  Today we will see how even the negative circumstances that happen in our lives can be used by God to accomplish His purposes and advance His kingdom.  God uses the circumstances of our life to build our character.

    Joy in Your Relationships
    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. Today we learn that the very places that we see joy being stolen away from us are often the very same places that God wants to give joy to us - including our relationships.

    In Between
    Series: (All)
    We live in a world where leadership is lifted up, yet we forget that leaders first learn to follow. Following is never easy, especially when the going gets tough. It can be hard enough to follow people we know, respect, and trust. It can be even harder to follow an unseen God who speaks to us through His eternal Word, strengthens us through bread and wine, and leads and guides us by His Spirit. Yet, that is our calling. In the midst of struggle, persecution, famine, joblessness, and conflict, we listen to the One we know, respect, and trust because He is our Creator, our Savior, and is always with us to the end of the age.

    What Must We Say
    Series: (All)
    There are many things that cause us to be afraid. We become afraid anytime we perceive our sense of security is threatened. This can be a perceived physical, financial, intellectual, relational, or spiritual threat. In these last days, these threats may only appear to be real or they may actually be real. No matter what it may be, our security and our strength lie in our God, who is our refuge and strength. In Him we put our trust.

    I’m Kind of a Big Deal
    Series: Liar Liar
    It is tempting to define ourselves by our accolades and achievements rather than by Christ’s achievement for us on the cross. On Father’s Day, we take a moment to remind men – and women – that they are valued and precious not because of what they do and accomplish, but because of who they are – baptized children of God.

    It Won’t Hurt a Bit
    Series: Liar Liar
    When confronted with and caught in a sin, you’ve probably heard someone try to justify his or her actions by saying, “I wasn’t hurting anyone!” In Joshua 7, we are introduced to the biblical concept of “corporate sin.” Achan sinned, but all Israel was held responsible. Thus, there is no such thing as a strictly private sin. This is why we ought to flee sin and, when we do sin, confess and receive absolution. For our sins not only hurt us, they hurt those about whom we care the most.

    We are Living in a Material World
    Series: Liar Liar
    Far too often, we get so caught up in the things of today that we forget about the eternal things of God. This world is more than what we see and the possessions that we have. This is why Paul warns against loving material things like money and, instead, striving toward eternal things such as righteousness, godliness, faith, and love. These are things that will last – not only in this world, but in the next.

    Those In-Between Times: Present or Absent?
    Series: (All)
    As the disciples saw Jesus become absent at the Ascension and were told to wait and pray and go to Jerusalem, so are we left within the “going” and the “coming” of the Lord.  Practicing His Presence is a matter of Faith and Spiritual Openness.  Our expectations are not disappointed but are met by gracious surprises.

    God sent his Son, the innocent Lamb, to be the sacrifice for our sins. Through his suffering and death we have the gifts of forgiveness and eternal life. Jesus paid the price of our salvation and by his wounds we are healed

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.
