SERMON SCHEDULE –  November 2019



November 3 –  Matthew 5:1-12 – ¡Presente!

Leslie Mansell (CP) Guest Preacher

 Pastor Leslie will be sharing even more than her ‘oratory skills’ with us this day.  Westminster PC in Sulphur has an “All-Saints Day” observance each year, and we too will share in that opportunity to celebrate the memories of those who have gone on to be with the Lord.  You will definitely want to be ¡Presente!

 


November 10 – Haggai 2:3-9; 2 Thessalonians 2:13-17 –

“Two Steps Forward, One Step Back”

 

It is quite appropriate that this Stewardship Sunday is recognized on our church calendar as “Caregiver Sunday”… for they both relate to our ability to ‘give’ in order to help others.  As one of the Scriptures relates to the manner in which we look ahead, and the other is relative to honoring the traditions of our past, we will consider how our journey of faith and giving can be considered “Two Steps Forward, One Step Back.”

 

 


November 17 – Isaiah 65:17-19; Luke 21:5-19 – “Suffering, Strength, and Salvation”

 

Oft-times it is very reassuring and comforting to read the words of Jesus in Scripture. There are other passages, however, that can be quite troubling.  Today’s reading that  speaks of destruction and persecution is certainly the latter.  But just as we must take care in lifting individual verses out-of-context, so too must we consider certain passages in relation to other parts of Scripture… as we will today in our consideration of  “Suffering, Strength, and Salvation.”

 


November 24 – Jeremiah 23:3-6; Colossians 1:11-12; Luke 1:68-79  – “Paving the Way”

 

After this day’s worship we will be joining together with our partners-in-ministry at First Christian to share in a meal.  But more importantly, we will then go out to dedicate the street that will lead into our future church home.  Like that relatively short piece of pavement, today’s Scriptures remind us of how God uses us to lead others to a relationship with Jesus Christ. Figuratively and literally, with the Lord’s help, we are “Paving the Way”…
