Worship Services by Pastor Gail Bach

“For Jesus”

Text: Luke 2:4-7 The story begins with Mary and Joseph getting ready for the birth of Jesus and not finding room at the inn. In the crowded busyness of our lives, do we turn away the Savior as well or can we learn to make room for the Prince of Peace in our lives- even when his presence makes demands of us?

“Lessons & Carols”

Text: Luke 2:1-7, Isaiah 9:2-7, Micah 5:2-5a, Luke 2:1-7, Luke 2:8-16, Matthew 2:1-11, John 1:1-14 The story of Christ’s birth is told through scripture readings and carols woven together and interspersed with devotional offerings from our pastors. Special music by St. Andrew’s Chamber Choir, Tim Graf, and Josh Eidem.

Love God, Love People | Love People… (10:30 AM Blended)

Text: Luke 10:25-37 Our storytelling Savior gives us a parable that is packed with meaning and shows us the essence of Christian love. We focus today on how compassion for others can be the driving force that ultimately brings meaning and purpose into our own lives even as we touch others. How are to be “good Samaritans” in this time and place and how does St. Andrew’s story of mission and ministry intersect with our own?

In One Sermon | The New Testament (10:30 AM Blended)

Text: Matthew 5:17-18, John 21:24-25 Jesus said, “I didn’t come to abolish the Law and the Prophets but to fulfill them.” The story of the New Testament is the story of God’s promise fulfilled in Jesus and it’s the story of God establishing his church through the gift of the Holy Spirit. Miracles, parables, epistles, and prophesies all point us to God’s Son, Jesus Christ, who brings us new life through his birth, life, death, and resurrection.

The Holy Bible (10:30 AM)

What’s the Point: The Holy Bible Text: Hebrews 4:12-13 The Bible is used in many different ways. In some countries it has been banned, in some places it has been weaponized or politicized, but there is one thing that it cannot be: ignored. For those who dismiss it as outdated and outmoded, the author of Hebrews reminds us that “the word of God is living and active… sharper than any two-edged sword.” How does the Bible continue to speak to…
