April 7, 2019 – Fifth Sunday in Lent
Psalm 126; Old Testament: Isaiah 43:16-21; Gospel: Luke 20:9-20
“Cornerstone of Salvation” - Sermon Text: Luke 20:17b - Rev. Shayne Jonker

“The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone” (Luke 20:17b). The Messiah of Israel, Jesus, is a rejected Messiah. One of the architects and builders of Israel thought unfit to be the cornerstone, but God sizes up the angles differently. This Jesus, born of the Virgin, crucified and risen, reigning at the right hand of God, the One who baptizes you and forgives you and feeds you is the rejected Rock of Israel and the Cornerstone of your salvation.

“A Troubled Soul” - Sermon Text: John 12:20-43 - Rev. Paul Shoemaker

Have you ever been terrified about something in your immediate future that you had to face? Jesus did. When confronted with the cross Jesus said, “Now is my soul troubled.” Learn how Jesus dealt with His “troubled soul.”

                          

April 21, 2019 – The Resurrection of Our Lord-Easter Day
Psalm 16; Epistle: 1 Corinthians 15:19-26; Gospel: Luke 24:1-12
“Where Are You Searching?” - Sermon Text: Luke 24:1-12 - Rev. William Mueller

Followers of Jesus journeyed to His tomb that Easter morning fully expecting to find a dead body. Instead, they are met with the joyous news that Jesus was risen from the dead! The question the Easter angels ask the women, though, penetrates our hearts and souls as well – “Why do you look for the living among the dead?”

 

April 28, 2019 – Second Sunday of Easter
Psalm 148; Epistle: Revelation 1:4-8; Gospel: John 20:24-31
“Vindication!” - Sermon Text: John 20:24-31 - Rev. Dr. Thomas Ahlersmeyer

How do we bear all the unbearable things people are called to carry? Scripture is bursting with words and actions that witness to future deliverance. “Vindication” – the validation of all that Christians have hoped and longed for – empowers us to face challenging todays and tomorrows.
