February 1 – 4th Sunday after Epiphany - Communion
Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 32:1-5, Habakkuk 1:12-2:1, Habakkuk 2:2-5
Sermon Title: “The Wicked are Winning”
Synopsis: On most days we probably feel like Habakkuk that the wicked are winning. What is our role in that reality? As followers of Jesus how do we respond to the seeming reality that the wicked are winning in the world? How does God respond to Habakkuk’s plea and what do we learn from that for our own situations?
February 8 – 5th Sunday after Epiphany
Scripture Reading: Psalm 11, Habakkuk 2:6-14, Habakkuk 2:15-20
Sermon Title: “Five Areas of Injustice”
Synopsis: In this section, Habakkuk details five specific woes, five specific ways that he sees the world carry out unjust actions. Where do we see these same types of unjust acts in our world? How are we involved in these unjust acts ourselves? What would we need to change in our own lives to remove ourselves from involvement in unjust acts?
February 15 – Transfiguration of the Lord
Scripture Reading: Mark 9:2-9, Habakkuk 3:1-15, Habakkuk 3:16-19
Sermon Title: “Trusting in our Sovereign God”
Synopsis: Habakkuk ends his prophetic word with a prayer, a psalm celebrating the sovereignty of God. In the midst of great injustice can we trust in God’s sovereignty? As followers of Jesus how are we instruments of God’s sovereignty and what does that mean for the living of our daily lives?
February 18 – Ash Wednesday - Communion
Scripture Reading: 2 Corinthians 5: 20b-6:10, Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21, Psalm 51:1-17
Sermon Title: “Awareness of Sin”
Synopsis: Where in our lives do we hide, ignore, or justify our own sin? David was fortunate, he had a friend Nathan, willing to confront the sin he saw in David’s life. Do we have such friends? If we had such people in our lives would we be willing to listen? Do we have a desire to grow in awareness of our own sin?
February 22 – 1st Sunday in Lent
Scripture Reading: Genesis 1:31-2:3, Ezekiel 20:18-21a, Matthew 6:9
Sermon Title: “A Hallowed Father”
Synopsis: Through Lent we are going to focus on prayer using the Lord’s Prayer as our model. Jesus used the Lord’s Prayer as a template for teaching the disciples how to pray. Prayer is a gift, but it becomes that gift as we practice it. Richard Foster reminds us that prayer is not something we master, but something we submit to. When we think of prayer in those terms how does it change our attitude about and our practice of prayer?
