Sermon Schedule – November 2018



November 4 – Psalm 146:5-10; Mark 12:28-34 – “Survey Said:  Strangers” Sacrament of Holy Communion

 

The words of Jesus with regards to the most important commandments of God… to love God and love one’s neighbor… are quite familiar to us.  But just who IS that ‘neighbor?’  The one we live next door to?  The one sitting in the pew next to us?  Or in the next office?  Sure.  But we are called to love more than those whom we know.  How should we be more aware of the importance to show the love of God to “Strangers?”

           

November 11 – Hebrews 9:24-28; Mark 12:38-44 – “Sacrificial Giving”- Veterans Day

 

This week we begin a break from ‘survey sermons,’ which will resume after Christmas.  Today’s Scriptures both deal with great sacrifices… from the poor widow who gave out of her poverty, to our Savior Jesus, who gave out of His greatness.   On this day that honors the also-great sacrifice made by those who have served our country, we will consider how God also calls us to engage in “Sacrificial Giving”…

             

 

November 18 – 1 Corinthians 3:5-23; Luke 6:46-49 – “A Firm Foundation”

As a congregation we are looking forward to soon be laying the foundations of a new church building… but what IS that ‘foundation’ that we are building on?  ‘Favorite son’ of the church Eric Dilmore… an important part of our church ‘construction crew’… will consider the answer to this question through both these ‘foundational’ Scriptures and from his own personal experiences these past few ‘foundational’ years.  You will not want to miss this young ‘evangelist’s’ words on building “A Firm Foundation.”
