Welcome Home: Our Need for Thank-filled Living

Americans are tempted to think of Thanksgiving as a holiday—a day for family meals and shopping deals. Thanksgiving is much more than a day in November. It is a spiritual attitude of the heart. Even secular psychologists recognize that thanksgiving is a key ingredient to thriving in life. Our heavenly Father has blessed us with clothing, shoes, food, drink, house, home, family and friends. The list of God's physical blessings is long. But the list of God's spiritual blessings in Christ is endless! Jesus welcomes us home this weekend. He blesses us with a seat at his thanksgiving table—right next to the saints of the past: Noah thanking God for his family's survival, Corinthian Christians expressing their thanks through love, and a leper thanking Jesus for a new lease on life. May Jesus richly bless us this week as we fill our hearts and minds with thank-filled thinking and our days with thank-filled living. Welcome home!

Welcome Home: You are Free to Be Yourself

Welcome Home: You are Free to Be Yourself

One of the joys of being home is you need not put on airs. Out in the world, we do all we can to hide our faults and failings. You might be afraid if your boss knew your secrets, he’d give you your walking papers. You might be afraid that if neighbors knew your personal issues, they might consider moving. But we know that in a healthy family, people will love us in spite of our faults.

As a young man, Martin Luther thought of himself as God’s slave. Thus, he was terrified of God. Luther believed God was a harsh taskmaster, looking for every possible reason to punish him. But as Martin Luther studied God’s Word, he realized that was not the case at all. God is a loving Father. He does not pretend we have no brokenness or sin, but he paid for it all by the death and resurrection of Christ. Scripture says that through faith in Christ, we are completely forgiven. We are part of God’s own family—a family where we are loved in spite of our faults.

God’s grace not only frees us from the fear of condemnation and punishment, it frees us to live a better, more grace-filled life. We want to live as God’s children. We want to love and bear with one another—our brothers and sisters—just as our Father loves and bears with us.

Join us this Reformation weekend, as we continue our Welcome Home worship series, celebrating the freedom Christ has given to us.

Welcome Home: You are Free from the Fear of Death

Welcome Home: You are Free from the Fear of Death

Death is ugly. It does not matter if someone dies after a long protracted fight with some illness or if they die peacefully in their sleep. Either way, the body goes into the ground and begins to decay. Either way, that person is gone, and their absence is constantly noticed.

Death would be overwhelming were it not for the fact that, for the believer, Christ has completely transformed death. Death is not the end. For those who are part of Christ’s family, death is the beginning of a new and better life, one where the deceased has triumphed over sin and all its consequences.

We thank God for this beautiful gospel truth—that Christians have an everlasting family. When Christian loved ones die, they are not “lost.” Something is lost when: a) you don’t know where it is, and therefore b) you will not see it again. We know exactly where our deceased Christian loved ones are. We look forward to being reunited with them soon in our true home—heaven. Welcome home!

Join us the weekend of November 2–4, as we continue our Welcome Home worship series and celebrate the festival of All Saints.

Welcome Home: You are Perfectly Safe Here

Welcome Home: You are Perfectly Safe Here

Twenty-one billion dollars. That is how much Americans spend annually on home security. We want our homes to be a place that our family can feel safe, where they can be apart from everything that can hurt them. However, the reality is that no matter how many locks and alarms and cameras you might use to guard your house, you and your family are not perfectly safe. There is a greater danger than thieves... a greater threat than bullies. There is even something worse than physical death. Judgment Day is coming, and with it, the destruction of all creation. If that day comes and you are not prepared, you begin an eternal nightmare.

In the Church, our brother Jesus has given us a home that is indeed perfectly safe. Not even Judgment Day can touch it. Christians can look forward to Judgment Day with great anticipation. Even as “the mountains fall into the heart of the sea” (Psalm 46:2), we have Christ’s promise that we will be perfectly safe. In Christ’s house, we need fear nothing. Welcome home!

Join us the weekend of November 16–18, as we continue our Welcome Home worship series and talk about the safety we have in Jesus.

Welcome Home: You are Part of a Glorious Kingdom

Welcome Home: You are Part of a Glorious Kingdom

We conclude our Welcome Home worship series this weekend, most appropriately, by talking about the most important member of our spiritual family—our brother, Jesus.

Windsor. Bernadotte. Bourbon-Anjou. Orange-Nassau. Glücksburg. Liechtenstein.

Do you know what those names have in common? They are all names of royal families. A member of each of those families serves as a monarch. The extended members of those families enjoy fabulous privileges, even if the monarch serves largely as a figurehead.

In this Welcome Home worship series, we have seen that Christ has welcomed us into his home and made us part of this family. Today, we see that this is a royal family. Our brother Jesus is King. He does more than serve as a figurehead. Christ rules over all creation for the benefit of his family. He promises us that one day we will sit with him on his throne (Revelation 3:21).

You simply must join us this weekend! We celebrate Christ the King Sunday, a beautiful finale to the Church Year. We praise Christ for his glorious reign. And we thank him for making us part of his royal family, giving us a claim to the Kingdom.

Welcome Home: Our Need for Christian Community

Welcome Home: Our Need for Christian Community

“Army of One” was the shortest lived recruiting slogan in US military history. It was meant to stress the strength of the individual. The Army dropped the slogan relatively quickly because they realized it was contrary to the reality that, in the army, you are completely reliant upon your team. In a stressful situation, the individual can be overwhelmed. He or she needs others. God knows this. The first time God looked at Creation and noticed something was off, the issue was that an individual (Adam) was isolated. “It is not good for the man to be alone” (Genesis 2:18). Humans are hardwired by God to need fellowship, not just with him, but with one another. So, God is determined to bring believers into a loving, nurturing community—the Church.

Perhaps you have been a part of this Christian family for a long time. Perhaps you once belonged to a church, but for whatever reason drifted away. Perhaps you have never belonged to a church. Whatever may be the case for you, please, join us this weekend on October 12–14. May God help us all to realize that this Christian community—this spiritual home—is something we badly need. Welcome home!

Easter Vigil Service

Easter Vigil Service

Please join us for our Sunset Easter Vigil Service beginning promptly at Sunset, 7:41 pm on Saturday, April 20th.

The Concept of a Vigil

A vigil is an evening service of Scripture readings and prayers in which believers vigilantly and eagerly wait and watch for the celebration of the Savior’s deliverance. Old Testament believers waited through the night of the Passover for God to deliver them from the Egyptians. The midnight worship reported in Acts 20:7-12 is another example of late-night waiting and watching. One might say that our Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve services are vigils of sorts. Coming together for a vigil helps believers practice waiting patiently for God to reveal his will in his own good time.

Good Friday & Good Friday Tenebrae Services
Apr
19
1:00 PM13:00

Good Friday & Good Friday Tenebrae Services

Join us for 2 different and moving services: Good Friday at 1:00 pm and the Good Friday Tenebrae service at 7:00 pm

Good Friday is part of the sacred Triduum, the three-day observance of the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. There is no Invocation or Benediction. The name may originally have been “God’s Friday,” but it is certainly also “good” because of the good gifts Christ won for us on this day. Good Friday is not observed as a funeral for Jesus. It is a day for repentance over sin and restrained joy and praise for the redemption the Lord Jesus accomplished for us on the cross. In keeping with this character, music is kept to a minimum, though not silenced. Elaborate words of praise are omitted. The altar remains bare, having been stripped on Holy Thursday.

The service of Tenebrae (meaning “darkness”) consists of the extinguishing of the church lights. Historically, Tenebrae occurred early in the morning at the Offices of Matins and Lauds on all three days of the Triduum. In recent times, the service has been observed only on the evening of Good Friday.

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday

Please join us for Maundy Thursday services at 3:45 pm or 7:00 pm.

What is Maundy Thursday?
The name comes from the Latin word “mandatum,” meaning “commandment.” It refers to the two “new” commandments our Lord gave to his disciples on this day. The first is “Love one another,” and the second is “Do this in remembrance of me.” In the early church, Maundy Thursday was also the day on which those who had fallen away from the Church were restored to full fellowship with other believers after having observed the 40-day penitential season of Lent. We are reminded of the reconciliation we have because of Christ's body and blood given for the forgiveness of sins, and the example of self-giving love shown by our Lord as he washed the feet of his disciples.

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. During the 40 days of Lent Christians prepare for the Savior’s journey to the cross with humble repentance, acknowledging that it was our sins that sent Jesus to the cross to suffer and die. Join us for these midweek services for prayer, reflection, and repentance under the theme of “Three Words of Truth” that focuses on a poignant three-word phrase from the record of Jesus’ passion and resurrection.

Service Times: 3:45 pm and 6:30 pm with Holy Communion.
