April 2015

He is risen, indeed! Alleluia! Happy Easter! OK, I believe you will get this newsletter on Palm Sunday... but, hey, it’s not too early to celebrate, is it? Well, even if it is, I do have to admit that I am pretty excited about this Easter season at our church. I am excited because we are going to be taking part in a preaching experiment! Let me explain...

Starting on Easter Sunday we are going to begin a sermon series called: “Liar, Liar.” This series will focus on many of the lies that our society tells us which keep us from the truth. According to the authors of this series, “The most dangerous lies are the ones we believe because we don’t even know they’re not true! Sadly, our culture has bought into many lies from Satan that are downright destructive. In this series, we deconstruct some of Satan’s most popular lies so that God’s Word may not only reconstruct the truth, but bring hope to many lives.” Our lives are saturated by the lies of the devil which suck hope out of our day to day living. This series will expose many of the lies and open our eyes to the truth of God’s Word.

The series itself is going to be fantastic. This series, as I mentioned, is part of a larger preaching experiment. A number of LCMS churches are going to be taking part in this same series this Easter season. What we are hoping is that the members of all the congregations who are taking part in this series would begin to engage with one another via social media. There will be a Facebook page available for you to post questions, share ideas, and discuss what you learned from the sermon on Sunday. You can begin to check things out by joining the group on Facebook at the following link:

I would also like to suggest that if you have been looking for an opportunity to share Jesus with a friend or family member, let this series be a way of doing that. Invite your friends with questions to our Sunday morning worship services or, if that seems to forward, point them to our webpage where they can find the sermons posted. Here are the themes in case you are interested:
  • Easter Sunday ~ Lie: You Only Live Once ~ Matthew 28:1-7, 11-15
  • April 12 ~ Lie: All Roads Lead to Rome ~ John 14:1-6
  • April 19 ~ Lie: All You Need Is Love ~ I Corinthians 13:1-8
  • April 26 ~ Lie: We Are Living in a Material World ~ I Timothy 6:6-13
  • May 5 ~ Lie: It Won’t Hurt a Bit ~ Joshua 7:1-6, 10-12
  • May 12 ~ Lie: I’m Kind of a Big Deal ~ Romans 2:17-24, 28-29

Please be sure you join us for this exciting series and let your friends know too!
