The Savior’s Sermon — January 29 – February 12
In the first half of this church season called Epiphany (epiphany means “appearance”), we saw Jesus appear on the scene, beginning his ministry. It is not long before large crowds start following Jesus around Galilee. So, in the second half of this season Jesus is going to teach us what it means to be one of his followers.
Jesus does this through the most famous sermon of all time, delivered while sitting on a hill, or mount. Elevated above the crowd, Jesus’ voice would carry through the air. His followers hung on his every word as the Christ talked about living an authentic Christian life. It is called the Sermon on the Mount.
 
Jesus Appears — January 8 – February 19
The Gospels tell only a little about Jesus’ life as an infant. We briefly hear of the desire of the boy Jesus to be in the temple. Then, Scripture falls silent, telling us nothing about almost two decades of Jesus’ life. For most of Jesus’ adult life, he lived quietly in Galilee, practicing the carpentry he had learned from his adoptive father, Joseph. Jesus had no followers. Jesus was not famous. But at the exact time God the Father had appointed, Jesus left that obscurity behind. The word epiphany means “appearance.” In the Season of Epiphany, we watch Jesus begin his public ministry. Jesus makes his first appearances. And in those appearances, it quickly becomes clear that this is more than a random carpenter’s son. As Jesus appears, we see exactly who he is and what he came to do.
 
A Savior is Born — December 24 – January 1
The first Christmas sermon was preached to a small congregation consisting entirely of shepherds. The preacher was an angel. The message of his sermon? “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you.” If one needs saving, it means he is totally helpless without outside intervention. That is how God the Father viewed us. So, he sent his only Son to be our Savior. Join us for a new series: A Savior Is Born.
 
Come, Lord Jesus! — November 27-December 18
Advent is necessary to prepare us for Christmas. It enables us to understand the true significance of Christmas. For Advent allows us to see that because of what Christ did when he came the first time, believers need not fear when he comes again. Instead, we yearn for it. Join us for a new series: Come, Lord Jesus!
 
Nov. 27 – Come, Lord Jesus… as King!
Dec. 4 – Come, Lord Jesus… as Judge!
Dec. 11 – Come, Lord Jesus… as Messiah! – Christmas Concert – WSP
Dec. 18 – Come, Lord Jesus… as Immanuel! – Children’s Christmas Service – WSP
 
 
The Last Day — November 13-20
Certain days mean different things to different people. Mother’s Day can be a day of great joy to the woman with three children, all of whom profess their love and appreciation on that day. That same day can be extremely painful for the woman who has never been able to have children. Certain days mean different things to different people. That will be most true on the Last Day. On his calendar, God has written in ink the day when Jesus will return to “judge the living and the dead” (Apostles’ Creed). In the final weeks of the church year it is natural for us to think about that Last Day and what it means, a Day that will mean very different things to different people.
 
 
All Saints’ Day — November 6
We believe in “the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints.” Saint comes from a Latin word that means holy. All with saving faith in Jesus as their Savior are holy. God grants them the status of saint. Glorious as the title is, we still struggle with trial and sin in this life. Some members of the communion of saints, however, no longer struggle. These are all the saints who, through death, have triumphed over all these things. They now live in the glory of Christ’s light. This week, we thank God for those members of the communion of saints who have gone before us and now enjoy everlasting life. Their example encourages us as we patiently wait to join them. We feebly struggle, but now, thanks to Christ, they in glory shine.
 
 
The Festival of the Reformation — October 30
We value freedom and strive to protect freedoms. But do we truly understand freedom? Freedom for many means doing what you want without control or coercion. Jesus helps us to understand true freedom: “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Heirs of the Reformation still bind themselves to Jesus’ teachings—Scripture. Does restricting ourselves in this manner curtail freedom? Just the opposite is true. God’s divinely inspired truth brings freedom, freedome from slavery to sinful delusions, from the burden of guilt, and from any earthly power. This week we see that when we willingly bind ourselves to truth, Jesus keeps his promise. The truth sets us free.
 
 
Everyone Outreach — September 11, 18
Everyone Outreach is all about “building a congregational outreach culture.” God has called out of darkness a people for himself… and for this lost world. He has gifted those he has called to faith and equipped us to use those gifts to declare his praises to a dying world. He has bestowed on everyone with gifts and bestowed on everyone a higher purpose for which to use those gifts.
 
Lord, Increase Our Faith — September 4, October 16, 23
We sometimes use the word faith very casually. Jesus, however, talks about faith in ways that are anything but casual. He says profound things about faith and its power. In thinking about his second coming, he even wonders, “When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?” Jesus’ words are serious and compelling. This series will confront us with the strong words Jesus speaks about faith. These words force us to consider what true, saving faith is. They make us ask if we have such faith. But most of all, Jesus’ words move us to run to our God and beg him for more of it. Lord, increase our faith!
 
Jesus and Modern Gods — Summer Series #3: August 7 – August 28
The “gods” we read about gods in ancient literature they read more as myth. While ancient cultures may have made altars to gods like Zeus and Poseidon, we don’t make physical altars to gods of sea and sky. But we still do have gods. And the gods of modern culture are more subtle. While we may not admit it, our modern cultures do worship things like logic and reason, acceptance and tolerance. What comfort do these modern gods offer and how does Jesus compare to these modern gods?

Lord, Teach Us to Pray — Summer Series #2: July 9 – July 31
It’s the most famous prayer of all time. We use it often. Jesus himself taught it to us! But do we really know what we are asking our heavenly Father when we pray it? How can we apply it to our daily life? Join us as we dive in to the Lord’s Prayer and pray as the disciples did, ”Lord, Teach Us to Pray!”
 
The Narrow Middle — Summer Series #1: June 5 – June 26
If you’ve ever had a vehicle start to “fishtail” on a slippery road you know how easy it is to overcorrect with the steering wheel and end up fishtailing the other way! This happens sometimes in our faith-lives with the truths of God’s Word. There are dangerous “ditches” on either side of the truths of God’s Word. And sometimes we end up fishtailing between them!. It’s tricky at times to keep to the narrow middle when applying these truths to our lives. The first of our three summer worship series takes on several of these balancing acts so that we can find hope and confidence in the truths of the middle road!
 
Our New Life with Christ — April 17 – May 29
Because Jesus is alive, so our lives are new in him! United with him by faith, we enjoy awesome blessings because he is our resurrected Savior and Lord. This Easter season, we marvel at some of those blessings.
 
Crushed — March 6 – April 3 (Lent)
Sometimes in life people just feel “crushed.” As Christians, we recognize that sin is the ultimate source of all the crushing moments in life. Our sin even crushed Christ. But Christ crushed both death and the devil. For 1400 years the Church has set aside the 40 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter as a time of repentance and renewal. Lent is a solemn season. But it is also a season of great hope. With the psalmist we say, “The Lord saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
 
UNCOVERED — January 9– February 27 (Epiphany)
We are in the season of the Church called Epiphany, a Greek word that means “to appear.” Salvation has appeared in the person of Jesus Christ. In Epiphany, the Church explores everything that Christ makes apparent about God. You see, we need God to appear to us and make himself known to us. For not only is God beyond our understanding, his works and his ways are contrary to mankind’s natural assumptions about him. In other words, the truth about God cannot possibly be discovered by us. Rather, it needs to be uncovered for us. That’s what the Spirit is doing for us during this season of Epiphany. Week after week, surprising truths about Jesus our King and life in his kingdom will be uncovered.
 
 
Great Expectations, The Season of Advent — November 21– December 19
Advent is a season of great expectations! It is a season of waiting and preparation, but of hope and joy. In Advent, we remember the “great things God has done for me” and the great deliverance he comes to bring.
 
 
A Mighty Fortress Is our God, End Times — October 31-November 21
Talk of the End Times sometimes brings apprehension. But God is our mighty fortress. He always has been and always will be. Our End Times series will highlight different aspects of God and of the history of our world that give us reason for hope no matter what tomorrow brings.
 
 
A God-Lived Life (Stewardship) — October 3-24
What does a God-lived life look like? It looks like Jesus. Living as a Christian, a little Christ, we have the privilege of demonstrating what God looks like in how we live our lives. In this four-week series, God’s Word will challenge us, and we’ll challenge one another to live a God-lived life: a life of being a disciple, a life lived for others, a life of hospitality, and a life lived shrewdly.
 
 
Connected in Christ – Overcoming Isolation Through Community — September 12-26
Today’s culture seems more divided than ever. It’s given way to much anxiety, isolation, and loneliness. Thankfully, God’s Word speaks directly to these and offers us community, identity, and belonging in Jesus. This series will provide the tools to break out of isolation, find identity and belonging in Christ, and join others in faith-filled community again.
 
 
The Dignity of Work – Labor Day
Work is not a four-letter word. As much as people might sometimes use it as such, God’s Word teaches us of the great dignity of work! As we celebrate Labor Day, we celebrate the way God blesses the world through the labors of people!
 
 
Daniel – A Believer In Babylon (July 31– August 30, Pastor Pudlo)
Daniel lived almost his entire life as an outsider. He lived as a believer in the one true God in a land and culture that was not supportive of him nor his beliefs. In the recent past, our own nation has been moving away from being supportive of Christian beliefs. How can we live lives of Christian integrity in a pagan polytheistic world? Like Daniel, how can we live as believers in Babylon?
 
 
Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe (July, Pastor Kom)
In this practical worship series, based on a book by Larry Osborne, we will look at some widely held beliefs that are both dumb (because they’re not based on God’s Word) and dangerous. Get ready to be shocked, relieved and inspired by the truth of God’s Word.!
