2022 Sermons

 

 11/20  Last S of the Church year

 Pastor Vogt on Christ the King sunday.

 

Christ is our King,  Lord and Savior, who was crucified for us on the cross.

 11/13  Twenty third S a Pentecost

 The last days will be marked by wars and earthquakes. Some will die because of their faith. When there is no more hope, remember that Jesus has defeated satan. All sorrrow, pain and lose will vanish. Our Savior is about to deliver us.

 11/6  All Saints Day

 Are you confident that you will go to Heaven?

Read the Beatitudes. Every believer will be blessed for all eternity.

 

 10/30  Reformation Day

 Martin Luther felt enslaved to sin, that is, unable to get free of the burden of guilt or the
obligation to set things right with God. Our shackles can only be removed by someone else. Our freedom is a result of Christ’s death on the cross – no less, no more.

 10/23  Twentieth S. a. Pentecost

 St. James of Jerusalem day.

Count it all joy when you meet trials of various kinds. He is preparing you for the joy to come.

 10/16  Nineteenth S. a. Pentecost

The Nature and Character of God.

God wants only the best for you. That's why He sent Jesus to suffer for the forgiveness of our sins.

 10/02  Seventeenth S. a. Pentecost

Woe to those who lead others to sin.

Don't allow your friend to engage in sin.

You must forgive them completely.

Your faith in God can forgive all of your sins.

 

 9/11  Fourteenth S. a. Pentecost

 9/04  Thirteenth S. a. Pentecost

Counting the Cost

What does it cost to be a follower of Jesus?

Be prepared to pay the cost or don't bother.

 8/28  Twelth S. a. Pentecost

Jesus gave his life for all of our sins so we could be upgraded to a better eternal destination. This is the honor Jesus has bestowed on us, so we can go to Heaven. 

 8/21  Eleventh S. a. Pentecost

Pastor Panning returns from vacation.

Does Jesus know you?

Are you in contact with Him? Jesus wants to know you. He wants to open the door to heaven for you!

 8/14  Tenth S. a. Pentecost

Pastor Vogt talked about what is costs to be a Christian. It prevents you from playing golf, or sleeping in on sunday. Those who intend to follow Jesus can expect to receive conflict.  

 8/07  Ninth S. a. Pentecost

Pastor Vogt was our guest Pastor today.

When studying the Bible, we always come back to Abraham. He is the living monument to faith. He was considered righteous because he believed and trusted in God.

 7/31  Eighth S. a. Pentecost

What comes to your mind when you think of an inheritance? Is it a specific item you
treasure that will go to a child; something you hope to receive; a quantity of money
that will relieve your stress or the stress of someone who will receive your money?

What could be a greater inheritance then an eternity in heaven?

 7/24  Seventh S. a. Pentecost

God stands above all earthly authority. Do not follow the cultural wisdom of the day. Follow wisdom found in scripture.

 7/17  Sixth S. a. Pentecost

Our Gospel lesson is the very familiar story of Mary and Martha as they host Jesus at their
house. Martha takes on the tasks of preparing food for the crowd and is annoyed that
Mary is not helping. If we already know that much, we probably think that Jesus compares
Mary’s behavior to Martha’s, and that Mary comes out looking better. But that is not the
comparison Jesus makes.

 7/10  Fifth S. a. Pentecost

Pastor Stephen Vogt is the guest Pastor today.

Prayer is not giving God our grocery list.   

Prayer is A Heart to Heart conversation with God

 

Using the word ACTS as an acronym

 

A - Adoration (and praise)

C - Confession - take a good look at ourselves

T - Thanksgiving

S - Supplecatiions - supplies that we need

 7/03  Fourth S. a. Pentecost

Jesus instructed his disciples to proclaim, “The kingdom of God has come near". What does that mean to you?

11 new members of Holy Lamb were installed today.

 6/26  Third S. a. Pentecost

Pastor Steven Vogt conducted services outside on the lawn. In todays Gospel, Jesus says there is an urgency to the Gospel. There is no guarantee of a home, or a family, only the welcoming arms of Jesus. 

 6/19  Second S. a. Pentecost

David and Goliath had a conflict. By all accounts is was a mismatch. As it turned out, Goliath was outmatched, not David.

 6/12  The Holy Trinity

While the term ‘Trinity’ never appears in the Bible, it is the best way to explain the relationship between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – the three persons of the Godhead. On Holy Trinity Sunday, we read the Athanasian Creed.

 6/5  The Day of Pentecost

In Jerusalem on Pentecost, 50 days after Jesus’ resurrection, people from all over the world had gathered. The disciples were not conversant in the variety of languages present. The Holy Spirit
specifically gifted the disciples with what they needed in order to share the Gospel with those particular people. Most of us are rarely in a
circumstance where speaking another language would make a difference in our ability to share. We face other challenges. What would it look like if the Holy Spirit was as adept at overcoming the challenges we face as he was on Pentecost in Jerusalem?

Cross with Sunrise

 5/29  Seventh S of Easter

Today we celebrate Christ's ascension. If you open your mouth in faith the Holy Spirit will empower you to be a witness to Christ.

 5/22  Sixth S of Easter

Satan’s impact in the world is obvious. It permeates every aspect of our culture and every culture in the world. It is often easy to look at
his power and influence and conclude that all is lost, that there is no hope. And the closer the tribulation strikes, the more we are inclined
we are to give up.
But in our Gospel reading this morning, Jesus tells us to expect this. And then he offers an absolute assurance, “Take heart, I have overcome the world.”

 5/15  Fifth S of Easter

Are we wedding crashers? Do we deserve to be in Heaven? Jesus came to save even the dogs of the world. We are very lucky dogs.

 

 5/8  Fourth S of Easter

In the book of Revelation, John tries to describe the indescribable – the beauty and glory of heaven. Won’t it be wonderful when we finally
get to enjoy it? What if we already could, virtually, even while living on earth? Could it be
that we can, even now, experience the security and joy to come?

 5/1  Third S of Easter

How many Lutherans does it take to change a light bulb? Do we like to change? Has Jesus's death, resurrection and ascension changed your life?

Cross with Sunrise

 4/17  Second S of Easter

What's it like to sit in the left field bleachers at Pelicans stadium? Theres no shade.

When God's shadow appears, His presence is there. In the shadow of the cross we stand corrected.  

 4/17  Easter Sunday  

Are you afraid, confused, in need of a miracle?

Peace be with you. Jesus is Risen!

 4/10  Palm Sunday  

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, the week that saw Jesus go from celebrated king entering Jerusalem with crowds shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” to his trial with crowds shouting, “Crucify him!” The week concluded with Jesus’ death on the cross and burial.

 4/03  Fifth S in Lent  

In this morning’s Old Testament lesson, God first reminds Israel of how he rescued them from Egypt. Then he immediately says, “Remember not the former things.” Why the about face? The answer comes in the next verses. Can you see what God is doing? More to the point, can you hear God’s message for you, today?

 3/27  Fourth S in Lent  

One of the most familiar parables of Jesus is The Prodigal Son. Have you ever noticed that Jesus left this parable unfinished? Why do you
suppose he did that? How would you finish the story?

 3/20  Third S in Lent  

Would you rather have it God's way or your way?

What is your spiritual condiition?

Is it time to turn to Jesus?

 3/13  Second S in Lent  

We should be careful not to turn our backs on God's instructions. A crisis can be averted when we believe and stand firm in the Lord. Jesus is our joy and treasure. 

 3/6 First S in Lent  

Why the season of Lent?

We celebrate Jesus's victory and are reminded of His grace. 

 12/24 Christmas Eve

 12/1 Christmas Cantata

A Cantata for Christmas by Joseph Martin

 

A musical service of illumination that gradually fills the sanctuary  with music and light. With Scripture, narration, carols and candles, this compelling cantata tells the treasured story of Christ's birth. From the hushed whisper of the “Candlelight Processional” to the festive arrangements of some of our most beloved carols, this work has something for everyone.

 4/4 Easter Sunday

The Resurrection; MARK 16:1-8

 

Death has a sting. We will feel a sting when we die. But it will be a brief pain. Because we know that we will have a front row seat in heaven. The best is yet to come.
