January 2019 Sermons

Listen Quietly, Listen Closely | Jan 13, 2019 | Rev. Stephen Welch

Pastor Stephen gets emotional about the hymn “You Are Mine”: “If there is one song that summarizes my ministry—and in my opinion, summarizes the ministry of Jesus Christ—this is it. God is calling you and me to be God’s special child.”

 

Scriptures:
Isaiah 43:1-7 
Acts 8:14-17

The Strength of the Web | Jan 20, 2019 | Rev. Stephen Welch

As members of the church we can rightly claim membership in the first and most powerful website of all. While the technological world boasts of the connective powers and possibilities available on the internet, the capabilities are paltry, and its visions are puny when compared with this web, which is our church. It’s brought together by the master web weaver, the Holy Spirit.

 

Scriptures:
Psalm 36:5-10 
I Corinthians 12:1-11

Joy Is the Business of Heaven | Jan 27, 2019 | Rev. Stephen Welch

Many of us learned the song at camp, “I’ve got that joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart.” Unfortunately, too many Christians have that joy so far down in their hearts that no one can see it. That surely was not God’s intention.

 

Scriptures:
Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-6, 8-10
Luke 4:14-21
