Aug 8-9  Weekend Worship Service “It’s Not About You, It’s About Me (Part 2)”

God’s grace sets us free from grumbling. Through the power of the Gospel and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we are able to grumble less and give thanks more. We are able to use our words to build up instead of tear down. Our complaints turn to praise. Listen-In or Watch below, as Pastor Tom completes this two-part sermon series.

Aug 1-2  Weekend Worship Service “It’s Not About You, It’s About Me”

It’s not about you. I know that is sometimes hard to hear, but it’s true. God’s gifts for you don’t come because you’ve done some good thing, or you’ve been good lately, or just because you’ve done something better than the person sitting next to you. No, God’s gifts to you, his forgiveness, his unwavering love, his mercy, his eternal life are all found in one place, in one person, in one Lord, Jesus Christ, Crucified, Buried, and Risen for you.  This weekend I’ll begin the first of a two-part series from John 6. To paraphrase Jesus, “It’s not about you, it’s about me! But they grumbled anyway.”

July 25-26  Weekend Worship Service “What More?”

How often has Jesus shown you personally through seemingly miraculous events that He is in fact Lord of your life?

Perhaps you can remember your intense gratitude to Jesus when he provided for you when you were out of options. Maybe you can remember how you proclaimed on that day of rescue how you would never doubt or forget his saving hand in your life. But as time goes by and the next overwhelming situation arises, our memory fades and fear takes over our heart. The same thing happened to the disciples. No sooner had they seen Jesus perform a miracle by feeding 5000 men, but that very night, they were rescued again in a boat that was being tossed about by wind and waves. Then when Jesus walks on the water and entered the boat, calming the tempest, they are utterly astounded at what Jesus did. Can you imagine Jesus saying “Really? What more? What more do I need to do to show you that I am God and Lord of all?” Is he saying that to you? Let’s talk about it in worship this weekend.

July 18-19  Weekend Worship Service “Immeasurably More”

When faced with the task of feeding thousands of people in a desolate place, the disciples look to send them away because it was near the end of the day. The people would need time to get down into the local towns to find food. Jesus challenges them to provide the food. With only so much money in the treasury bag, their resources are limited and they wouldn’t be able to buy enough food for everybody. Going to town to buy food would take time. Time is of the essence. They must act now. Immediately on hand are only five loaves of bread and two fish. Is Jesus demanding too much? The task is too great……or is it? When Jesus takes matters into his own hands, he can bring “Immeasurably More” to the situation. Can Jesus bring you ‘Immeasurably More”?

July 11-12  Weekend Worship Service “The Power of the Plum Line”

It is a common tool sometimes called a plumb-bob, plummet, or plum-line. The ancient Egyptians used it to make certain that walls were vertical. Surveyors use them to set their instrument exactly over a fixed survey marker so they can place markers in the proper location. Simply a line or cord with a weight at one end, held vertically, it helps a carpenter or mason build straight walls.

Did you know that God uses a plumb-line? This weekend we will talk about God standing beside a wall with a plumb-line. Why? Can’t God determine if a wall is straight or not? And frankly, what does a plum-line have to do with our lives?

Listen-In or Watch this weekend as I’ll show you not only how a plum-line works but also about the power in a plum-line. Not terribly excited? Well how about if I tell you, “Satan wants to mess you up, but I’ll show you real hope and integrity.”

July 4-5  Weekend Worship Service “Faith During the Delay” – Independence Day 

We live in a wonderful land filled with many freedoms for us to enjoy on a daily basis. Freedom is meant to open up our lives to help us experience all that this life offers, so that we can enjoy the pursuit of happiness and become produc!ve in all our endeavors to make our world a better place. That is the positive side to freedom. However, there also can be a negative side to freedom. Peter tells us “Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.” How are you living out your freedom?

June 27-28  Weekend Worship Service “Faith During the Delay” 

Waiting upon God can be one of the most difficult things to do, especially when it comes to matters of health where someone’s life hangs in the balance. During these times, we come pleading to God for him to save the person we are concerned about. Yet sometimes it seems as though God is delayed in coming to their rescue, and we wonder if He will arrive in time to save them. A leading ruler of the synagogue, named Jairus, pleaded with Jesus to heal his daughter. Jesus was delayed. His daughter died. Was Jesus too late? Let’s see if fear or faith is more powerful for Jairus during the delay.

June 20-21  Weekend Worship Service “Fatherly Lessons of Strength and Faith” 

Often fathers are a source of strength for their children, especially in crisis situations through life’s storms. As their children, we would not hesitate to wake our dad up from a nap in order to alert him to our crisis, looking for him to solve the problem. Sometimes we mistake our father’s silence as indifference to our situation, just as the disciples thought of Jesus as he lay asleep in the boat during a fierce storm. Let’s explore the fatherly lessons Jesus has for his disciples and us.

Only the Contemporary service was correctly recorded this weekend. We’ll be back to normal next weekend. Please accept our apologies.

June 6-7  Weekend Worship Service “There’s No Place Like Home” 

The resurrection of the dead and the eternal house that belongs to believers seems to have been a source of confusion for the Christians for years. So St. Paul explained that a believer has an eternal house in heaven. Moreover, he recognized that while we long to be living there, we can be confident of getting there, and we live for God until we arrive there.

May 30-31  Weekend Worship Service “Trinitarian Relevancy” 

This weekend our focus is on gaining an understanding of the Holy Trinity. Who of us can fully grasp the mystery of the Godhead in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? Many have endeavored to delve into this mystery through lengthy writing and dialogue. While these attempts provide some greater understanding, for many they leave us in a state of confusion as we attempt to wrap our minds around comprehending the very make-up of God himself. Does understanding the Trinity provide relevancy for our lives on a day to day basis? How can this understanding help us in our daily interactions with others, especially with those who don’t hold the same world view? Let’s look at a conversation between Jesus and Nicodemus for some clarity. Listen in or watch below as Pastor Warren tells us more.

May 23-24  Weekend Worship Service “Memorial Day And A Birthday” 

On Memorial Day, we remember 70 wars that we have fought starting with the mid-18th century French and Indian wars. In our thirteen major and 60 or so “minor” wars, approximately 1,500,000 soldiers have died to protect our freedom.

On the day of Pentecost, 120 followers of Jesus gathered in Jerusalem when suddenly the Spirit of God filled each one of them and marked them with tongues of fire. On that day the Church was born.

As we begin worship today, consider the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice so we can gather without fear. Today we believe, teach, pray, and sing as we choose.

Apr 25-26  Weekend Worship Service “What Are You Willing To Fight For?” 

Jesus tells us that He is the Good Shepherd, and that He is willing to lay down His life for His sheep. He said that "No one takes it from me, but I lay it down on my own accord." This is what Jesus was not only willing to do for you, but actually did it, so that you can receive eternal salvation. Jesus fought for you. He still fights for you. The apostle John also wrote "By this we know love, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers" Jesus considers you valuable enough to fight for. What or who are you willing to fight for?

Apr 18-19  Weekend Worship Service “Jesus Comes to Us” 

Do you ever wish you were with the disciples on that first Easter evening when Jesus appeared to them? They were talking about him and then suddenly he appeared saying, “Peace be with you”. And how did they react? They were frightened. Then Jesus said, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts?” I need to be reminded at &mes that even the disciples were frightened with the resurrected Jesus, who has just defeated death, standing in front of them.

Apr 11-12  Weekend Worship Services – “A Come to Jesus Meeting” 

On the evening of the Day of the Resurrection, the disciples have locked themselves behind closed doors. Fear gripped them, as they wondered what the Jews would do to them. It is here that Jesus appears to them since the last time they were gathered together in the garden when Jesus was seized in Gethsemane. It was there that they ran. It was there where they abandoned Jesus. It was the last time, that Jesus stood alive in their presence. Suddenly Jesus appears to them. He is alive! What will Jesus say to them? Will he chastise them for running away previously? It’s kind of an ‘Uh Oh’ moment for the disciples. Could it be a ‘Come to Jesus’ moment for them?

Feb 14-15  Weekend Worship Services “Urgent Care” 

Sometimes, the greatest faith is not the mountain moving kind of faith at all. Sometimes, the greatest test of faith comes when you speak to the mountain and it doesn’t move. That is when God may speak to you and say, “I’m not going to move this mountain, but I will give you the strength to climb it.”

You already know “Every Mountain has a Valley.” But how do you get back to the mountaintop? Join me, Pastor Tom, and let’s talk about it.

In fact, it is a busy weekend at Immanuel with Transfiguration Sunday, a time for you to renew you Marriage Vows, Valentine’s Day, Back Pew Talks, and we look forward to the Burning of the Palms next Tuesday! Wow, that’s a mountaintop experience by itself.

Jan 31-Feb 1  Weekend Worship Services “Your Eyes, God’s Eyes” 

Our Lutheran Schools Week emphasis this year is that we also are to be!!! Jesus’ servants. Because Jesus served us with His life, we are given the joy of serving Him by serving others.

Jesus sees things differently in his kingdom. He sees service, helping others, and sacrifice rather than power, might, and glory. Jesus sees his kingdom as one of the cross, not glory, but servanthood. Jesus sees his kingdom through God’s eyes and those eyes see people in God’s kingdom helping, sacrificing, and serving others. What do your eyes see? Let’s talk about it this weekend at Immanuel … “Your Eyes, God’s Eyes.”  Listen-in or Watch below!

People magazine published its first issue on March 4, 1974. In 2009, it had a readership of 43.6 million adults, the highest of any American magazine,1  and it continues to be very popular today. The magazine has survived and thrived for 40 years because Americans love celebrities. We want to know all about people who make the news, from movie stars to sports legends to the person next door who has done amazing things.

For every celebrity, of course, there are thousands of people with wonderful talents, amazing lives and great gifts to share whom most of us seldom notice. They are the people who get things done and whom we count on every day to keep life moving. They are teachers, nurses, firefighters and police officers, garbage collectors, doctors, parking valets, waiters and waitresses, stockbrokers, bankers, pastors and priests, moms and dads and so many more.

Our scripture today lifts up several people who had little in the way of “celebrity status” but who had a role in Jesus’ story. Their connection with Jesus and their service to him quietly changed their lives. We can learn much from them.

Dec 20-21  Weekend Worship Services “Ready For Christmas?”

What do you still need to do to be ready for Christmas? I don’t mean to stress you out, but it’s only a few days away. So I hope you’ve thought about that a bit.

Maybe you need to clean the house or make some lists and make sure that you’ll have everything for Christmas dinner. How about gifts — buying them, of course, and wrapping them? If they’re for people who live at a distance, you’ll now need express delivery if you want to be sure they arrive before the 25th. And, of course, there are decorations to take care of, and a lot of other things.

But since this is a sermon, you may have realized that I’m not really asking about all of those things. What are you doing — what do you need to do — to be ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus? Or to put it another way, what do you need to do in order to receive God’s Christmas gift to you in the right way? What we need to think about is the meaning of Jesus’ birth for us today. Otherwise, we’re just celebrating a historical event like we do on Washington’s birthday.   Whether it’s making your house ready or making your heart ready, remember what the angel Gabriel said, “For nothing will be impossible with God.”  So ready or not,  see you on Sunday!

Dec 13-14  Weekend Worship “The Voice”

The popular talent show called “The Voice” is designed to raise-up budding singers to become the next musical artist that will rise to fame on the music charts. These artists are given trainers who provide them with the needed refinement needed to elevate them to superstar status. They are adorned with clothes that ooze success, and their voice reaches incredible heights in volume and pitch that draw in the audience so much that they are completely locked into what they are singing. Cheers, clapping, and standing ovations often follow after each contestant has proclaimed their message through song. At this point, many in the audience would do anything to hear more from their favorite Voice. After the performance, three judges offer their complimentary opinion and any criticisms are designed to help them reach even higher levels.

Not so with “The Voice” that we hear about in this week’s gospel lesson. John the Baptist is “The Voice” that we will hear this week. While he was also destined for greatness even before he was born, John the Baptist certainly didn’t have an outfit that cried out success, and most certainly didn’t have an adoring crowd chanting his name and giving him standing ovations along the Jordan River. However, people where interested in who he was, but unlike the talent show, they weren’t interested in giving him encouragement. The message of “The Voice” called upon people to change their behavior and change their minds in order to get ready for the true Rising Star. People don’t like to change. People don’t like to be told to change either. But the change that “The Voice” is crying out in the wilderness, is just as important for us, as it was for those who came out to see him on his stage. Checkout “The Voice” this weekend at Immanuel. Maybe you’ll find yourself wanting to hear more

Nov 22-23  Weekend Worship “Too Little, Too Late”

Sheep and goats are often seen together in the same field. Farmers and ranchers usually allow them to graze and roam the same ground. As long as anyone can remember, the animals have been together. It is pointless for the owners to place them in different fields. Sheep and goats are free to wander and mingle. They do not fight, envy, or avoid one another. Yet Jesus says he will return to separate the sheep from the goats. What is going on? What does he mean? Liten-In or Watch, as Pastor Tom talks about “Too Little, Too Late.”

Bethlehem’s Child Cantata – We hope and pray that you will be blessed by “Bethlehem’s Child” Cantata, featuring the Immanuel Choirs, Bells, and live orchestra. Child Of Promise: Branches (10:45) – He was a scrawny seedling. There was nothing attractive about him. He was looked down on and passed over.  He was a man who knew pain firsthand. One look at him and people turned away. We looked down on him, thought he was scum. But the fact is, it was our pains he carried. We thought he brought it on himself, that God was punishing him for his own failures. But we did that to him. We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way. Pastor Tom finishes the story and more…
