Matthew 8:28-34

Sermon: With These Two Hands

See also Matthew 10:5-15

What do we do with our hands, our labor, our vocation? Are we a blessing? The sermon title comes from the song With These Two Hands by Jon Bon Jovi.

08 September

Scripture: Isaiah 61:1-11

I Thessalonians 4:3-7

Sermon: Human Worth

The value of a life/soul should be evident to us all, but this sermon is necessitated by recent events in the news. Slavery, child trafficking, and sexual exploitation have made headlines because of a high profile individual who purportedly enslaved many. Unfortunately, this is not a rare occurrence in this age.

From 15 September until the end of October, the sermons will revolve around our varied callings to serve the greater church. This can be found in Ephesians 4:11-12: “And He gave the apostles, the prophets,the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ.”
