    Begin with the End in Mind
    Series: (All)
    Begin with the End in Mind Often we find ourselves between one thing and another but may lose touch with our final purpose or goal. Focusing on the next best thing, we risk losing meaning and direction. Focusing on the current worst thing, we risk getting stuck in our grief. As you hear the scriptures read today, think about what God may be inviting us to do differently and how he is there to make it happen.

    Dealing with Doubt
    Series: (All)
    Everyone has doubts. Just as we struggle with our own doubts, we are called to engage others as they struggle through theirs.  It is part of our Christian witness and testimony not to disregard or disparage the doubts of others, but rather to share faithful and thoughtful responses to their doubts. This, after all, is what Jesus did.

    "How to Find Peace" - Philippians 4 AS WE GATHER: In the first lesson today we hear about the conversion of the Apostle Paul who went from being someone who was out to destroy the Christian community to one who brought the "Peace of Christ" to them. Paul writes in the Epistle lesson about the "Peace that passes all understanding." In the Gospel lesson Jesus tells us that the way to peace is through Him because "He is the Way and the Truth and the Life." We will learn how to find that peace in the Message today.

    The Transfigured Christ Changes Our Lives! The Transfiguration event on the church calendar was appropriately placed three days before Ash Wednesday, thus revealing that Christ would display His glory on earth just before He would begin the pain and suffering of His Lenten experience for our sins. Likewise, may we today fully appreciate the miracle of the Transfiguration and all that it entails, including the miraculous appearance of Moses and Elijah, as we too begin to prepare our hearts for our Lenten journey with Christ, our Savior.

    "Passing Through the Waters" The importance of Holy Baptism cannot be overstated for the Lutheran Church today. Yet for many individuals thinking about becoming Lutheran, baptism is a stumbling block. How can we put our faith in a rite, much less mere water? How can water do such things? As Luther himself said, it is not just water, but the word of God in and with the water does these things, along with the faith which trusts this word of God in the water. Today’s sermon will explore the wonderful gift of Holy Baptism for the Lutheran Church today!

    Jesus’ Divine Work at a Young Age!
    Series: (All)
    “Jesus’ Divine Work at a Young Age!” (Luke 2:49) Our Gospel lesson for this morning follows an approximate 10-12 year period of silence in the Gospels regarding the life of Jesus. After the birth narrative and the eventual visit of the wise men, nothing more is heard about Christ’s life until the age of 12, detailed for us today in Luke 2. What happened during those intervening years? Only the Holy Spirit knows; but His godly wisdom in dictating the Bible is shown through His choice of divinely chosen revelations in Jesus’ life, all for our spiritual edification.
