Worship Services by Pastor David Lillejord

“For Self” (10:30 AM Blended)

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?

“For Self” (9:00 AM Traditional)

Text: Luke 5:12-16 Our Lord sets an example for us even as we go about the business of caring for others: to go off to a lonely place to pray. Do we allow room in our lives for the quiet and self-care we need in order to be our best for those around us?

Christmas Eve Worship | “The Light of the World”

Text: John 1:1-5, 14 The season of Christmas is almost upon us and we are so excited that. Music at this festive service will feature the Canticle Choir and brass ensemble as well as soloists Tim Graf and Elliana Meier. “I am the Light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

“Love” (10:30 AM Blended)

Text: Song of Songs 8:6-7a, 1 John 4:7-8 Too often we have seen our faith rejected by the world when Christians act without love. Our call as Christians is to reflect the God who not only shows us love but who is love. The Word became flesh in the person of Jesus Christ and the Word becomes flesh in tremendous ways when we, God’s people, live out our faith in everyday life.

“Peace” (10:30 AM Blended)

Text: Isaiah 2:1-5 Christ’s coming as the Prince of Peace teaches us about God’s heart and God’s desire for us to live in peace. How are we called in this present age to “beat our swords into ploughshares” as we make a statement for peace through humble service to our neighbors?

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

Text: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13, Matthew 22:34-40 There’s more to 1 Corinthians 13 than just a nice wedding text: it is both a vivid picture of how Jesus loves and also how we are called to love others at all times. Our mission and ministry at St. Andrew is rooted in the greatest commandment of all: love God with all of our heart, mind, soul, and strength. God’s own Spirit comes alongside us as we make this our vision and goal…

All Saints’ Day

Text: Romans 8:38-39 This Sunday marks a special time in the church year when we remember those loved ones who have received their eternal rest in heaven with our Lord. Candles are lit in the memory of departed saints and our music and preaching combine to tell the story of the reason for our eternal hope in Christ. The Canticle Choir and Chamber Choir join together with orchestra to perform portions of contemporary composer Michael John Trotta’s “Light Shines in…

In One Sermon | All My Children (10:30 AM Blended)

Text: 1 Corinthians 12: 12-19, 27, Colossians 3:12-14 In spite of all our differences, God has made us one body and calls us to live in peace and unity. How is God inviting us not only to tolerate but actually to celebrate the differences among us even as we are called to go and make disciples of all nations?
