Enough for Now


Enough for Now. Unpacking God’s Sufficiency will begin September 11 from 9:30 to 11:00 in the Concordia Room. We’ll explore how our desire for enough can drive us to God instead of propelling us toward more money, more stuff, more activity. By looking at Jesus’ parable of the rich fool, we’ll explore what God says about having enough. Through Scripture passages, study questions, reflection, prayer, and life application, we’ll learn that we can find security and joy only in God, who is sufficient for every imaginable need. Reserve your study guide by contacting Marlene Maxfield (314) 846-3880.

Sermon Series “Cloud of Witnesses” 8-3 to 9-29-2019

Jul 29, 2019 by     Comments Off    Posted under: News & Events, What's Happening


“Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith…” Hebrews 12:1-2a

We’ll examine the lives of 9 men and women from the 20 centuries following Jesus’ earthly ministry. We remember these saints, however, not to honor them for their own sake, but as examples of those who lived their lives in Jesus their Savior. Christ’s saving work has been made manifest in their lives to His glory. May we be encouraged by this cloud of witnesses! Also, during this sermon series, anyone who turns in at least 7 out of 9 comleted sermon outlines will receive a copy of the book Celebrating the Saints from Concordia Publishing House.

Grounded in God’s Word: Commentaries on Life

God’s Word gives life. God’s Word concerns life. God’s Word of life reveals what He has done, how every human life has value and dignity, and how everything God created was for the sake of His children—for us! We cannot consider this without awe. The fallen, broken world, however, does not acknowledge this. It promotes instead the self above all, champions an “anything goes” theology, and brings hurt and confusion. Bad things happen. People are deceived. Lives are destroyed. Collected here are easy-to-read commentaries concerning topics such as moral worth, abortion, evolution, suffering, life and death decisions, biblical manhood and womanhood, and other sanctity of life issues. Grounded in Scripture, these relevant essays explore what is revealed in God’s Word and discuss a wide array of topics pertaining to human life, God’s grace, and His perfect love for us in Christ Jesus.

August 2019Hello, My Name is Single by Adriane Heins

Whether you have chosen your singleness or whether the Lord has given it to you, whether you are content with your current situation or hate it with a deep and intense loathing, whether you long for relationships that no longer are or simply remember them with a quiet joy, you feel. You feel deeply. You are, perhaps, more in tune with your feelings than most. Because you reflect on what it would mean to have a spouse. Hello, My Name Is Single is a witty book that challenges and encourages single men and women to live secure in Christ, whether they’re searching for Mr. or Mrs. Right or completely content living the single life. Author Adriane Dorr Heins treats her readers to a delightful conversation of practical and personal issues many singles face. She offers a historical, biblical approach that reminds readers that their identities are found in Christ, not in relationship statuses on Facebook.
