It’s one of the most popular prayers ever spoken. It’s called “The Lord’s Prayer”, but it could also be called “The Disciples’ Prayer” because it’s a prayer Jesus taught His disciples to pray. But what does this prayer ask for? Is it meant to be the words of one prayer, or is it meant to be a pattern for all prayer? In this series, we will learn about the purpose, the person, the petition, the provision, the pardon, the protection, and the power of this prayer Jesus taught to His disciples.
Do you know how Satan tries to destroy you? Do you know his strategy, his methods, his limitations, and your defenses? How can we practically experience the victory already earned for us through Christ’s death and resurrection? Through the real-life experiences of four different Bible characters from the Old Testament who had direct confrontations with the devil, we learn what Satan targets in order to destroy us, the weapons he uses to attack us, the purposes he wants to achieve through his attacks, and the defenses God has provided us to win the spiritual war.
Water is vital to our existence. Without water you will die. Too much water can also hurt or even kill you. Water is powerful! Over the next few weeks, we’ll take a look at some of the moments in scripture where water played a key role in how God communicated His message to the world. Join us as we take a dive into H20.
What is it about Faith Lutheran Church that makes us unique? Why do we do what we do as a church? In other words, what is our motivational flame or shared conviction? What do we hope a guest might “feel” as they attend a worship celebration, The Rooted Experience, a Life Group, or an event we sponsor? Is there something we believe in that truly inspires missional activity and action? The answers to these questions describe what we highly VALUE. Values help to guide the pastors, staff, and leaders to be able to say “yes” to what we believe is most important, and “no” to ideas and activities that might be important but not the most important.
Do you feel tired, worn out, or like you are running on fumes as you try to keep up your life’s fast pace? Is your body beginning to put out warning signals from running too fast, sleeping too little, or self-medicating too much? Is it time for a reset? During this two-week New Year’s series, we will look at what it means to reset, rest, and refresh. How can we “be still and know” (Psalm 46:10) or learn to “Come to Me (Jesus) all of you who are weary and burdened.” (Matthew 11:28)
As we gather today, our goal is to point to Jesus - the Savior of the world. Join in as we sing and celebrate the birth of the Savior of the World - Jesus.
Horrific accidents. Earthquakes. Flooding of epic proportions. Red tide. Bigger, stronger larger hurricanes, tornadoes and typhoons. Extreme heat and humidity and snow-meggedons. At some point in the last year have you asked the question “What is up with this world?” WHAT'S GOING ON?
As Christians, we should be intentional as we strive to grow in love and generosity...in every way! Why? Because This most generous God...is more than extravagant with us.
Kids are a blessing! There are days when parenting seems easy, but on other days, parenting leaves us looking for answers. Unfortunately, kids don’t come with instructions. Each child is different, challenges us in specific ways, and is uniquely gifted by God. Factor in that our kids are broken by sin - so are we - no wonder parenting is tough!
In this seven-week message series, we focus on how we view 'work'. Did you know if someone works 40 hours a week for 40 years, that means they will put in more than 80,000 hours or over nine years straight at a job during their lifetime! Is work a calling or a curse? Is it fulfilling or frustrating? Is our job more than a job? Are we serving God or man? Or are we just working for the weekends?
Our focus is on Jesus’ introductory words in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1-12). The Be-Attitudes are attitudes, ways of thinking, that are contrary to popular opinion or natural ways of thinking. Jesus’ words challenge us to think with a kingdom perspective. We will discover the true meaning of words like humility, meekness, spiritual hunger, mercy, purity, peace-maker, and how to endure persecution. Only through Christ, can we learn to “be” what we were destined to become.
A zombie walking through Jerusalem, the sun standing still, bears mauling little boys to death - we discuss these stories and ask, “Is there something we can learn about God, ourselves, and others from these Stranger Things?”
