Today's Focus: During the Epiphany season we want to get to know Jesus. This Sunday we get to know him by baptism, both his and ours. The baptism of Christ as the inauguration of his ministry is the them of the day. But as we remember Jesus' baptism we also focus on our own baptisms, by which we are connected to him and his saving work. This work was done on behalf of all people and has the Father's full approval and delight.

January 8, 2017  
The sermon for the Second Sunday after Christmas, January 8, 2017. The sermon text is based Galatians 4:4-7
 
Today's Focus: God cares for His children. He cared for his children, the nation of Israel - though they were rebellious. He card for His Son, Jesus - though Herod raged against him. He even cares for his newly adopted children - though we do not deserve it. God cared for us by sending his Son to deliver us from the corruption of sin and transform us into his own sons and daughters. That work of Christ gives us peace that only children can have.

December 25, 2016  
The sermon for Christmas Eve, December 24, 2016. The sermon text is based on Luke 2:8-20
 
This evening's Focus: Before you had bought one present this Christmas or any Christmas, God decided to give you the greatest gift that could be given.  He came into this world of sin and death, and by his perfect life and death on the cross, purchased for you the gifts of forgiveness and eternal life.  On this night we ponder how he came to our earth, and the wonderful free gifts he brings to us as we contemplate sections of Luke chapter 2.  In the words of the shepherds, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about!".

December 18, 2016  
The sermon for the Fourth Sunday in Advent, December 18, 2016. The sermon text is based Matthew 1:18-25
 
Today's Focus: In the Bible, names often have special meaning. In the book of Isaiah, the prophet foretold that the coming Messiah would be named "Immanuel". That name means "God is with us". How meaningful! It describes perfectly what we find in Bethlehem's manger: God, wrapped in flesh, that he might dwell with us in our home. And because of what Immanuel did in his death and resurrection, we can joyfully look forward to the day when we will go to dwell with him in his home.

December 4, 2016  
The sermon for the Second Sunday in Advent, December 4, 2016. The sermon text is based Matthew 3:1-12.
 
Today's Focus: Prepare the way with sincere repentance. When Jesus came into the world the first time, God raised up John the Baptist to prepare people to meet him. John preached a powerful message of repentance, and it brought about a renewal of life. People ran to Jesus, the bringer of salvation. Jesus is going to come into the world a second time, and we are to prepare the same way - with sincere repentance. For the unrepentant, Christ's return will mean an eternity of sorrow. But for God's repentant people, Christ's return will mean an eternity in his glorious Kingom.

November 27, 2016  
The sermon for the First Sunday in Advent, November 27, 2016. The sermon text is based Romans 13:11-14.
 
Today's Focus: Prepare, for the Lord will come again unexpectantly. There are no surprises with Christmas. We know exactly when December 25th will arrive. We can calculate the very minute. That is not the case with Christ's second coming. We have no idea when it will take place. It could be ten-thousand years away. It could be in the next ten minutes. But God kept his promise to send Christ the first time; therefore, we have confident faith he will keep the promise to send Christ again. Because we do not know when that will be, we must always be prepared.
