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...
FAITH OAKVILLE: This is not just Another series. “One Another” is a repeated expression in the New Testament, describing a culture where God’s people are to be connected to one Another in ways the world has not seen. As gifted and graced children of God, Christians are exhorted to love, accept, forgive, encourage, admonish, build up, serve, be subject to, bear with, confess to, be kind to, honor, and even greet one another as a group called the Body of Christ. And that’s just a partial list of the “one anothers”! During this six-week series, we will be highlighting often read “one anothers” in Scripture. Our goal in this series is to help people reconnect, not only with God but also with one another as brothers and sisters in Christ.
FAITH COLUMBIA: Look, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming. Do you not see it? With these words from Isaiah 43:19 God reminds His people that He has opened new doors, has provided ways when there seemed none, and led them where He wanted to go. Sometimes the way was clear. Sometimes it wasn’t. Ultimately, our relationship with God through Jesus is one lived by faith. In this series Pastor Jon will lead us through where we believe God is leading His church here in Columbia to. A New Thing beginning right now.
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?
Horrific accidents. Earthquakes. Flooding of epic proportions. Bigger, stronger larger hurricanes, tornadoes and typhoons. At some point in the last year have you asked the question “What is up with this world?”
