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 theme 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.

Today's Focus:  Joy to the world, the Lord is come!  This morning we gather for the Festival of Epiphany which celebrates Jesus as Savior of the whole world.  The Festival of the Epiphany of our Lord is the second oldest festival celebrated by the Church, dating to the second century.  The Eastern Church commemorates the birth of Christ on this day, but the Western Church remembers it as the "Gentile Christmas" and celebrates Jesus who appeared as the Word for the world.

December 17, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, December 17, 2017 is based on Malachi 4:1-6
 
Today's Focus: Rejoice! He comes for you!  Cherish this message that comes from God's Word.  Wrapped in that message are the most beautiful of Christmas presents, bought by Christ and carried to us by the Holy Spirit.  The message prepares you for the real Christmas and for the real joy that God wants you to have in Christmas.  It is joy of peace with God even when conscience accuses.  So don't despise the preaching of that message as though it were old news not worthy of repetition.  Test all the customs of Christmas in your heart and home, and hold fast to those that focus on Christ.  Shun the evil and the debauchery that many pass off as Christmas Spirit. The Christmas Spirit is the joy of holiness because of sin washed away.  It is the joy of knowing that God is faithful and will not leave us or forsake us no matter what happens to us in this life; for the Light of the world is on his way, right around the corner, and he will not disappoint or fail to keep his Word!  Rejoice!

December 10, 2017  
The service for Sunday, December 10, 2017 is a series of 3 sermonettes based on, Isaiah 40:1-11, Mark 1:1-18 and 2 Peter 3:8-14
 
Today's Focus: Listen! His Word prepares you!  Since Jesus' coming is sure and so important, he sends out forerunners in the footsteps of John the Baptist who help us to make proper preparation for his coming.  They do that with a message not their own.  They do it with the message that he himself has given.  We will do well to pay close attention to those heralds of the comong Lord, the prophets and apostles, and to the pastors and teachers in our midst who have succeeded them to get us ready for his coming.

December 3, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, December 3, 2017 is based on Mark 13:32-37
 
Today's Focus: Keep watch!  Jesus will come again!  Those who are busy doing their own thing, serving self, looking only for the cute and entertaining things that have become such a part of the world's Christmas culture, will not be ready for either his coming in grace or his coming in judgement. Make no mistake about it: He comes!  He comes in grace!  He comes in judgement!  How then should we prepare for both comings?  We do well to turn our eyes away from the glitter and the culture of the world and focus them instead first on our need for his coming and then on his sure and certain promise to fulfill that need when he comes.  We eagerly prepare by repentant watching.

November 13, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, November 12, 2017 is based on Daniel 7:9,10
 
Today's Focus: As the church year comes to a close, four Sundays are dedicated to the "End Time"-the time in the future when Jesus will triumphantly come back to take his people to eternal glory.  This Sunday we look at one aspect of that time: the Last Judgement.  The words "Last Judgement" or "Judgement Day" often make many uneasy.  Many may wonder what that day will be like.  They may wonder what God will do with them on that day.  Will they join him in heaven, or suffer forever in hell?  Today we will see that God's children have nothing to fear on the last Day.  In fact, covered with the perfect life of Jesus, they have one thing to look forward to: an eternity of peace with their loving God.

November 5, 2017  
The sermon for Sunday, November 5, 2017 is based on 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
 
Today's Focus: Have you ever won a contest?  A prize?  A sporting event?  An award?  What was the feeling like?  Imagine the greatest feeling of victory that you can.  Now imagine that feeling doubled in intensity and in joy.  This might help us imagine just a bit the feeling of victory that we will in heaven-forever united with every other saint, or believer in Jesus, in victory.  But we do not need to wait for heaven to start celebrating.  In worship this morning, we will celebrate the Saints Triumphant-all those believers who have gone before us into heaven, those who believe in Jesus now, and the victory that is ours forever.
