Sermons:

Pastor Jay’s sermon series dealing with our questions about Christian life, worship, and beliefs.

June 7:  Mysteries Of The Early Church  (What do we know of Jesus’ family?  What ever happened to Joseph?  What became of the twelve original apostles?)

June 14: Rapture or Left Behind?   (A guide to the end:  what is the tribulation, rapture?  Why did Jesus instruct Mary not to “hold on to me” in the garden at the Resurrection? Who gets to go to heaven and who doesn’t – is it fair?)

June 21:  God’s Love Letter: How Lutherans Understand the Bible   (How to properly understand and use the Bible.  Bible a sign of living relationship.  Prophesy, fulfilled.  The big plan.)

July 5, 2015:  R-E-S-P-E-C-T: Why Christians Have Lost it and How We Can Get It Back  (Why society thinks we’re a joke.  Knowing what our message is and isn’t.  Living out the faith.)
