Sermon Series

2022 Christmas Eve

December 24, 2022 • Jonathan Pokluda • Luke 2:1–20, Luke 22:52–53, Luke 2:44–49

It’s Christmas Eve! Where does your attention go during the Christmas season? Is it more about Jesus’ birth or about all the gifts and things you have going on in life? If we aren’t careful, we can start with Jesus, but then the attention will shift toward ourselves. As we finish our series, “It’s Complicated,” we examine the complications around Jesus’ birth and the complications for us today as we celebrate His birthday. 1) Division 2) Travel 3) Unforeseen Circumstances 4) Accommodations 5) Work 

Make the Most of Your Time

December 18, 2022 • Dale Wallace • Ephesians 5:15–21

The holidays can be a complicated time where the urgent crowds out the important. This week we look to Ephesians to learn how we can choose our time, use our time, and not waste our time. Just as John the Baptist prepared a way for Christ, we too have opportunities to use our time to prepare the way for Christ, no matter the season!  1) Choose your time wisely 2) Use your time wisely 3) Don’t waste your time being filled in the wrong spirit

The Most Difficult Time of The Year

December 11, 2022 • Nate Hilgenkamp • Psalm 34:17–19

When you are going through grief or loneliness in the Christmas season, it seems like there is no place for you. In this sermon, we look at who our God is in the midst of our grief and who we can be to those who are grieving.  1) The Lord hears you 2) The Lord is near to you 3) The Lord will deliver you
