    All Roads Lead to Rome
    Series: Liar Liar
    Our culture is mired in relativism. Many people believe that it doesn’t matter what you believe as long as you believe something. They believe all roads lead to God. Jesus, however, is clear: only He leads us and brings us to God. In today’s message, we discuss how to begin a conversation about the exclusivity of the gospel in a world full of relativism.

    The Life of a Sheep Ain’t so Baaad
    Series: (All)
    You’re in charge. Or not. God created us to be dependent, on Him. But it’s a challenge to believe that, for it requires a sense of humility and a sense of awe to understand how far reaching and how incredibly personal the love of God really is. In the Gospel, Jesus used the imagery of sheep and a shepherd to describe our relationship with him: He’s the shepherd, He’s in charge, and He holds our lives in his hands and provides for us more abundantly than we might ever provide for ourselves. And that’s something we can be thankful for.

    You Only Live Once
    Series: Liar Liar
    You’ve probably heard it before: “YOLO.” “You only live once.” This is what the religious leaders desperately wanted to be true about Jesus. But no matter how much they tried to cover His resurrection with their lies, their efforts proved futile. On Easter Sunday, we celebrated the truth that Jesus’ resurrection means our resurrection. Today we continue to celebrate that and the truth that we will live more than once. We will live forever.

    Here I Am
    Series: (All)
    On Easter evening and again the following Sunday, because the disciples saw Jesus alive, they knew the resurrection was real, and they believed in Him. They were then able to witness to their faith in spite of opposition and persecution from the Jewish council. Though grieved by various traits, it was the “living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:3) that enabled the Early Church to rejoice. The reality of the resurrection becomes evident to people around us as we live out our faith, confessing Jesus as Lord and offering peace and forgiveness in His name. As they come to faith, they join us and “have life in His name” (John 20:31).

    Standing in Victory
    This morning we celebrate a victory! Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God slain for our sins, has risen from the dead. Through faith in his name we have forgiveness and eternal life. Because he has risen, we too will rise. Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!

    Standing in Humility
    The crowds on Palm Sunday welcomed Jesus, waving palm branches and shouting, “Hosanna!” That word means “Save us now!” and soon Jesus would do just that. Today we welcome our Savior and celebrate the salvation he won for us through his death and resurrection. From our humble King we learn to live in humility towards one another.

    Standing in Truth
    Today we will see how the Roman governor Pilate questioned Jesus about his kingdom. Jesus answered that his kingdom is not of this world and that he came to bear witness to the truth. Pilate asked, “What is truth?” He did not know that the Truth stood before him in the flesh.

    Standing Through Persecution
    Jesus was rejected, betrayed, deserted by his friends and arrested. He was unjustly tried and condemned to death, yet he willingly endured it all to save us. As we stand at the cross together, we pray that we will be bold witnesses for our Savior so that others will come to know and worship him as Lord.

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.

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.
