Sermons for July


July 2019 Sermon Titles and Scriptures

Celebrating God’s Goodness in our Children

July is focused on our children and youth. Their joy in faith; how they perceive God’s work in their lives; how we gift them with a witness of faith. And if we are very blessed, we adults get to share in that joy and perception and gift.

Sermon Title: “Because of Winn-Dixie”

Sermon Title: “A Gift to our Children”

Scriptures: Colossians 1:9-14 and John 14:25-27

What is the greatest gift we can give to our children? What is it that will enrich their lives, give purpose in what they do and comfort when things go bad? The assurance that God is good in all circumstances. That we can lean on Jesus throughout our lives.
