Today's Focus: Our God Patiently Seeks Fruits of Faith.  The arrival of fall signals an approaching event in many areas of farm land: harvest time.  Faithful farmers will be able to cultivate their crops and celebrate the fruit of their labors.  They rightly expect to yeild "fruit" or crops from their land.  God thinks the same way about us.  He expects to see a harvest of faith-born fruit things like peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control-in every season of our lives.  Come and worship your God, who expects and empowers you to bear fruit for him!

October 1, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, October 1, 2017 is based on Matthew 20:1-16
 
Today's Focus: Our God is Incomprehensibly Gracious.  What is our God like?  During these final Sundays in the season of Pentecost, the Church hears Jesus tell parables which reveal characteristics of our God.  Today's lessons cause the worshiper to ask: Is God fair?  The answer: No, he's not.  He doesn't give us what we deserve, and that's called mercy.  In fact, he gives us what we don't deserve, and that's called grace.  Our God is inconceivably gracious.

September 10, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, September 10, 2017 is based on Matthew 16:21-26
 
Today's Focus: The Church is Militant: First the Cross Then the Crown.  Today Christ tells us that for him and for us, going God's way means death must come before life.  He calls on us to deny ourselves and follow him on the way of the cross.  Those words offend our sinful flesh and make our Old Adam cry with Peter, "Never!"  They make us accuse God with Jeremiah.  So today the Church prays for the never-failing mercy of Christ that we might avoid such wicked and harmful thoughts and instead be guided on the cross-laden path to salvation.  Then, and only then, do these words of Christ cease offending our flesh and become a joy and delight for our heart.

Today's Focus: The Church Will Stand Forever by Grace Alone.
October 31, 2017 will mark the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation (as many historians consider the beginning of the Reformation when Martin Luther nailed his famous "95 Thesis" to the church door in Wittenberg, Germany). But the message of the Reformation might be best summarized not in the 95 Theses, but rather the 5 "Solas."  The word "sola" means "alone" in Latin.  As Luther read God's word, he discovered that we are saved by God's grace alone, through faith alone, which comes to us by the Word of God alone.  All of this is due to Christ alone, who lived and died and rose for us.  In light of this, we worship and live to the glory of God alone! This morning we welcome the Branches Band who will complement the series of sermonettes based on the 5 Solas.

August 20, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, August 20, 2017 is based on Matthew 13:44-52
 
Today's Focus: The Christian Answers Doubt with Faith.  Doubt is the unfortunate companion of faith.  Whenever faith clings to the promises of God, doubt is always right there lingering in the back of our mind, constantly asking the serpent's Garden question, "Did God really say?"  Today's lessons show us believers who had faith in God and his abilities to save them, but yet doubted when his plans or purpose failed to match theirs.  In each case, it is adversity that fights against faith and allows its unfortunate companion to rear its ugly head.  And in each case, the true answer to doubt is not found in the great miracle that removes adversity, but in the small voice of our Savior God whispering in his Word.  Today we hear our Savior God ask us, "Why did you doubt?", as we see that the Christian answers doubt with faith.

August 6, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, August 06, 2017 is based on Matthew 13:44-52
 
Today's Focus: The Christian Seeks Spiritual Wealth.  This Sunday's readings (1 Kings 3:5-12, 1 Timothy 6:17-21, and Matthew 13:44-52) are centered around the very ancient Prayer of the Day.  For nearly 1,600 years God's people on this day have prayed that God might give them true spiritual wealth.  "Teach us always to ask according to your will that we may never fail to obtain the blessings you have promised."  What a magnificent prayer for the materialist world in which we live!  Our readings today show people who have come into great wealth, but yet this earthly wealth only serves to illustrate where true treasure lies.  Today we see that true, spiritual wealth can only be found in God and his eternal blessings for us in Christ.
