April Sermon Themes
April 1 Easter Sunday “Victory Won” John 20:1-18 Romans 8:31-39 In the Gospel lesson, we read that Mary first assumed that Jesus’ body had been taken away and then when she saw Jesus, she supposed that he was the gardener. She simply did not entertain the thought that he had been raised from the dead. God won victory over sin and death. We will see that God does not promise that all of our troubles will go away, but that we will have peace in Christ. Nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus.
April 8 “We are Witnesses” John 20:19-29, 1 John 1:1-4 Jesus comes to us when we are fearful and when we doubt. Then, like Jesus’ disciples, we become witnesses of what we have experienced.
April 15 Pastor Jim Erhman will be the guest speaker at the 8 and 10:30 Services. Due to the Second Saturday Gathering there is no 10:15AM Together In Praise today.
April 22 “An Upside-Down World” John 10:11-18, Acts 4:5-12 Jesus laid down His life for us. The stone which the builders rejected has become the Cornerstone. I will use examples of those who have laid down their lives in school shootings.
April 29 “Those who seek God” Acts 8:26-46 Matthew 7:7-12 The story of Philip and the Ethiopian shows how determined the Ethiopian was to find faith. He went to Jerusalem to worship and he somehow obtained a scroll containing the text of Isaiah. We will see how we might respond to those who are seeking spiritual things today. The Dedication of the Memorial Garden is scheduled following the conclusion of the late morning services today.
