FLC TV - September 14 Sermon - Matthew 18: All Debts are Paid

E-mail Print PDF

Matthew 18:21-35:  Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?”  Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.  Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand bags of gold was brought to him.Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt.  At this the servant fell on his knees before him. ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.  But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred silver coins. He grabbed him and began to choke him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded.  His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay it back.’  But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. When the other servants saw what had happened, they were outraged and went and told their master everything that had happened.  Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ In anger his master handed him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed.  This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”

FLC TV - September 7 Sermon: The Greatest

E-mail Print PDF

Luke 9:46-48: "An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest. Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him. Then he said to them, 'Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest.'"

Faith in the Home

Caring Conversation  -  Daily Devotion  -  Traditions and Rituals  -  Acts of Service

Last year parents learned these "Four Keys of Faith Formation". This year, we will discuss additional practical ways to implement these keys. Since parents are the most influential factor in a child's faith formation, First Lutheran Church will again be offering this 3-part Bible study for parents of children ages 0-6th grade on how to continue to teach and encourage faith in the home. Come together to join other parents to learn and share ideas with each other. These studies will be held on Sept. 19, Oct. 24, and Nov. 14. at 6:00-7:30pm. Dinner and childcare will be provided by the congregation.

What a Difference a Daddy Makes

We all know that involved fathers boost their daughters’ academic achievement, promote their emotional health, increase their compassion for others, and help set them up for success. Based on the book What a Difference a Daddy Makes, by Dr. Kevin Leman, Pastor Grayl will be leading a fathers’ Bible study that will help give practical ideas, inspiration, and provide specific direction for helping daughters grow into loving, confident, caring adults. Join other fathers in this weekly Bible study beginning in January. Exact day and time of the week will be announced.

Parents’ Night Out

Beginning January 16, 2015, First Lutheran will begin offering free childcare and a simple dinner for children ages 0-12, one Friday a month from 6:00-8:30pm. This ministry is intended to give parents the opportunity to enjoy a night out without the worries and extra expenses of babysitters. We hope that not only will our own congregation members find this ministry helpful and uplifting, but also friends of our congregation families.  More details will be announced soon!
