Welcome to the third Sunday in Lent. Our scriptures today are:Isaiah 55:1-9Psalm 631 Corinthians 10:1-13Luke 13:1-9 Our focus is on holy living. That’s why I chose this title that will make all of the English teachers in the congregation cringe. Because when we focus on the Holy, when we put our trust, our focus, and our faith in God, then we begin to reflect the image of God that lives within us.
What is the meaning of the resurrection? Paul gives us an idea in 1 Corinthians 15:35-50. Join us as we connect death and resurrection with new life and an infant baptism in worship today.
Our scripture lesson, 1 Corinthians 15:12-20, deals with the the question of Jesus’ resurrection. What did this mean to the people in the church at Corinth? What does it mean for us today?
We continue with this series based upon the epistle reading. Our scripture this week is 1 Corinthians 15:1-11. After lecturing the Corinthian church about the infighting that was going on, he tells that they need to get back to basics. God’s grace alone is responsible for their salvation.
Our Scripture this morning is 1 Corinthians 13, known as the love chapter. It is probably one of the most famous chapters in all of the New Testament. It is also one of the most misunderstood chapters of scripture. Paul was writing to a church that he dearly loved. It was a church in turmoil over what was important.

This week, we continue the discussion in 1 Corinthians 12:12-31a. Gifts of the Spirit are not meant to divide, but they are for the entire body. Join us as Pastor Wayne continues this series Love Never Ends: Being the Body of Christ.
Paul was concerned about the church at Corinth. He started this congregation of Gentile believers only a few short years ago. However, in his absence, the church was losing sight of who they were and more importantly, whose they were. They were forming cliques and other things that were detrimental to the community of believers. Paul writes to gently correct them and urge them to focus on what was most important, serving each other in love. Join us on this wintry…
“I planted. Apollos watered. But God gives the growth.” God makes ministry and spiritual growth happen… sometimes (alright, most of the time) in spite of us. Join us for this look at 1 Corinthians 3:1-9 as Pastor Wayne completes this sermon series: Somos del Señor, We Belong to God.“
Living our faith in relationship to Jesus Christ. That is how we demonstrate that Jesus is more than a concept to us. It’s the real thing… no doubt about it. Join us as Pastor Wayne explores 1 Corinthians 2:1-16 and the concept of living out our faith in a way that makes other folks want what we have… a relationship to the living “Christ and him crucified.”
“Consider your own call, brothers and sisters…” This is the advice that Paul gave to the church at Corinth. It is the advice that he gives to us today. The cross of Christ is foolishness to a world that is hung up on status and prestige, but to a follower of Jesus it is the source of strength and power as we are enabled to transform the world in which we live and love.
