We welcome our guest Pastor John Schmidtke, from Bethlehem Lutheran Church.
FAITH OAKVILLE: During the month of September, we will focus on what God is doing around the world and closer to home in our city. Each week we will focus on one of Faith's mission partners and discover how we can make an impact.
FAITH COLUMBIA: We're in this together! That statement is one that lets us know we aren't alone, that others feel what we are feeling, and that others are experiencing what we are experiencing. As the people of God, we often feel isolated and alone, but that is not how God intends for us to live. All throughout the Bible we see God's people gathering together, growing together, and being sent out together to multiply the kingdom of Jesus. We're in this together church! Join us as we explore and experience what it looks like to be the church - together.
A few months ago, we asked you what topics you would like to hear about on Sunday mornings. You responded with more topics than we could address in one message series; but we chose five of the most requested to cover in this series...
What is it about movies that captivates you, that draws you in, and makes you want to enter into the world it creates? As a church we think movies are one of the places that our culture finds it’s pack, escapes to a whole new world, and is reminded of many of the “good things” of life.
Jesus was a master storyteller. He used simple word pictures, in what we call parables, to teach profound spiritual lessons. The stories He told spoke of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, persistence in prayer, humility, being ready for Christ’s return, handling God’s resources, and receiving God’s love, as well as many other topics.
We are all encouraged to share our faith story with others, so during this message Pastor Chris is sharing his story of questioning Christianity. Although his journey led him to a vocation as a pastor, his story is probably not all that different from yours.
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?
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?
Water is vital to our existence. Without water you will die. Too much water can also hurt or even kill you. Water is powerful! During this series, 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.
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? The answers to these questions describe what we highly VALUE.
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?
