Sermons about Communion

Communing with God

Date: November 25, 2018 | Speaker:

Often we read how we are to behave and what we are to do as followers of Christ. How do we find the power and inspiration to do it and continue when it gets difficult? The key is keeping in constant contact with the Father. It’s by communing (praying) and reading His Word.

Proclaiming the Lord’s Death

Date: September 9, 2018 | Speaker:

No one ever celebrates when someone they love dies. Yet the Bible tells us to proclaim, to give thanks for, even to rejoice in the death of Christ. Why? Because it was His death on the cross that paid the penalty for our sin and made us righteous before God. His death gives salvation and eternal life to all those who put their faith in Him. Whenever we take the Lord’s Supper, we are proclaiming His death — we are preaching the Gospel — and that is the greatest message we could ever share.

The Body of Christ

Date: March 25, 2018 | Speaker:

It’s easy to forget the context in which the New Testament writers, and Jesus himself, taught us about taking part in the Lord’s Supper. In examining the context more closely, it becomes clear what Jesus was communicating to His followers. Listen as we take a closer look at the heart of what Jesus was passing on to us to not only remember through our knowing, but to also remember through our doing.

Giving Thanks for God’s Goodness

Date: November 26, 2017 | Speaker:

We use the word “good” to describe all kinds of things from food, to events, even the weather. It has become such an overused and common word that when the Bible describes God as being good, it doesn’t really impact us. Yet if we stop to truly consider all the ways God’s goodness has transformed our lives, we will be overwhelmed with thankfulness for who He is and for all He has done for us!

Restoring Broken Things

Date: August 20, 2017 | Speaker:

It is amazing to see how a skilled artist can take broken pieces of glass and carefully assemble them into a stained glass window to create a beautiful work of art. This reminds us how we were once broken and shattered by sin, but Jesus restored us into something beautiful by His grace, and now our lives can reflect His glory!

Why Are We Seeking Jesus?

Date: November 27, 2016 | Speaker:

The feeding of the 5000 is considered a major transition point in Jesus’ ministry. Crowds of people came to him, seeking him, wanting to learn more about this man who was doing these miraculous things. But after the feeding of the 5000, people stop following him and actually many turn away. Why do they do that? Why don’t they continue following him?

Remember Those Who Haven’t Heard

Date: May 29, 2016 | Speaker:

An estimated 97% of the world’s population has heard of Coca-Cola, yet more than 25% have never heard of Jesus. As we celebrate the fact that we have been privileged to hear the good news of the Gospel, may we remember all those outside our walls who have never heard, and may we long to share the good news with them so that they too may know.

Never Forget

Date: March 20, 2016 | Speaker:

There is a tendency in human nature to take for granted the sacrifices that have been made for us during our lifetime. We often forget the blood of the patriots who gave their lives defending our freedom. We often forget the martyrs who gave their lives defending the Gospel. But are we also guilty of forgetting the greatest sacrifice ever made for us when Christ gave His life on the cross?

While We Were Still Sinners

Date: November 29, 2015 | Speaker:

Who would you die for? Most of us would be quick to say that we would die for our children, our spouse, and perhaps even a small select group of others; but that’s the easy answer. Would you die for a murderer? Would you die for a rapist? Would you die for a member of ISIS? The fact is, Jesus did die for those people, and His selfless sacrifice makes it possible for all of us sinners to be made right with God forever!

Discerning the Body

Date: October 25, 2015 | Speaker:

To partake of the Lord’s Supper is to remember the crucified body of our Lord. But when Paul writes to the Corinthian church the instructions to follow when coming together around the Lord’s table, and he tells them to discern the body, does Paul only have in view the crucifixion, or does he have more that he is communicating?

He Gave His All For You

Date: August 30, 2015 | Speaker:

When Christ left heaven to come and save us, He didn’t stop halfway or just give His second-best. He gave up everything for us by willingly pouring out His blood on the cross. Knowing that Christ gave His all for us, we must ask ourselves the question, “Am I giving my all for Him?”

Dying to Live

Date: July 5, 2015 | Speaker:

No doubt, many people saw Jesus hanging on the cross and thought, “What a waste! He could have done so much more good if He hadn’t died.” But Jesus compared Himself to a kernel of wheat, which will never become more than a single seed unless it falls into the ground and dies. Only by dying can it spring to life and produce many more seeds. As His followers, we have been called to die to our own life just as Jesus did. Until we die, we will never begin to truly live!
