June 2021 Program Summaries
June 6, 2021 – Second Sunday after Pentecost
Psalm 130; Genesis 3:8-15; Mark 3:20-35
“Crazy or Faithful?” - Sermon Text: Mark 3:21 - Rev. Shayne Jonker
It’s crazy. Getting up for church, going through ancient rituals that have no connection with contemporary culture, and calling yourself a sinner, and believing that a pastor’s word is Christ’s Word forgiving your sins. Singing difficult hymns, praying to a God you can’t see or hear directly, eating a bit of bread and drinking a sip of wine believing they are the sacrificial Body and Blood of Jesus. Trusting Jesus’ finished work instead of your own works for salvation. Some will say, It’s of the devil. Most will say you’re crazy. God calls it faithful.
June 13, 2021 – Third Sunday after Pentecost
Psalm 1; 2 Corinthians 5:1-10; Mark 4:26-34
“Our Forever Home” - Sermon Text: 2 Corinthians 5:1-10 - Rev. Paul Shoemaker
As we age, we become more and more aware of our mortality. Our once strong body shows signs of weakness and age. The day will come when the burdens of this life will be over, and we will be forever with the Lord.
June 20, 2021 – Fourth Sunday after Pentecost
Psalm 124; Job 38:1-11; Mark 4:35-41
“Fear Knot!” - Sermon Text: Mark 4:35-41 - Rev. William Mueller
The picture is very familiar: Jesus, asleep in the boat while His disciples battle the elements, trying to keep the boat afloat. Is Jesus unaware of their concern or, worse yet, the danger at hand? The answer to that question is the same answer He lovingly gives us to answer our questions of where He is during the storms of our life. Where is Jesus? He is right here! Listen to what He says.
June 27, 2021 – Fifth Sunday after Pentecost
Psalm 30; Lamentations 3:22-33; Mark 5:21-24, 35-43
“Praise and Adoration” - Sermon Text: Psalm 30 - Rev. Dr. Thomas Ahlersmeyer
The “business of living” brings incredible joys and unbearable sorrows. Christ-followers praise God in the highs and lows of life and all conditions in between. We live with the sure and certain hope that Jesus Christ is with us through it all.
