Sunday Church School 11:20 A.M.
Nursery care is available during Services
March 8 – 3rd Sunday in Lent
Scripture Reading: Galatians 2: 18-21, Philippians 3:12-16, Matthew 6:11
Sermon Title: “Holy Bread”
Synopsis: “Give us this day our daily bread.” I think we want to consider this prayer from both a physical and a spiritual point of view. We pray for God to provide for our needs. We also pray for God to nurture our spiritual lives. We may spend more time praying for God to provide for our physical needs than to nurture our spiritual lives, why might that be the case?
March 15 – 4th Sunday in Lent
Scripture Reading: Psalm 25:11-22, Matthew 18:21-35, Matthew 6:12
Sermon Title: “Forgiven and Forgiving”
Synopsis: “Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.” Jesus teaches us here that there is a relationship between being forgiven and forgiving others. How have you experienced this connection in your life? Do we pray for God to give us the strength, courage and wisdom to forgive others? Do we pray for God to open our eyes to where we need forgiveness in our own lives?
March 22 – 5th Sunday in Lent
Scripture Reading: James 1:12-16, 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5, Matthew 6:13
Sermon Title: “Trial and Rescue”
Synopsis: “And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one.” Do we pray for God’s protection for ourselves and others? Do we pray that God will give us Divine Strength to overcome the temptations of life? Do we open ourselves to be rescued by God rather than our own feeble attempts?
March 29 – Passion/Palm Sunday
Scripture Reading: Mark 11:1-11, Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29, Philippians 2:1-11
Sermon Title: “The Joy of Service”
Synopsis: Jesus chose to lay down his life for us. What was his attitude about that choice? Did he choose that path grudgingly, reluctantly, guiltily, sadly, defiantly? Is it possible that he chose the path he chose from a place of joy? In our own lives have we been able to embrace the path of service joyfully?
