MAKE YOUR MARK: Great Churches Serve with Christ’s Works and Words (Part 7 of 7)

May 20, 2018

We conclude the “Make Your Mark” message series as we celebrate the birth of the first Christian Church at Pentecost. The Holy Spirit came upon the followers of Jesus with great power and moved them to share the Good News about Him with the whole city of Jerusalem. The Church was born, and its members served others with loving works and powerful words of life.


MAKE YOUR MARK: Build from Common Ground (Part 2 of 7)

April 15, 2018

Our culture tends to focus on things that divide us, rather than things that we have in common. However, the power of Jesus’ resurrection helps Christians to “be of one heart and mind” and celebrate unity. That does not mean that we all share the same opinion; rather, we all see the same big picture of God’s work in the world through His Son, Jesus. When we focus on common ground, we can build a legacy of service to one another that changes the worlds and makes a mark.


MAKE YOUR MARK: Intentional Acts of Goodness (Part 1 of 7)

April 8, 2018

Welcome to worship at Christ Lutheran Church Ministries! Today we begin a new message series called “Make Your Mark: Lessons of Living a Legacy of Service.” One way to do that is with intentional Acts of Goodness. Such acts lead people to Jesus as we share our faith with others. The book of Acts features such examples, which is how the book got its title. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, Christians can leave a legacy of lives changed and a growing kingdom of God.

DEFINING MOMENTS: Living in the Present Tense (Part 6 of 6)

DEFINING MOMENTS: Living in the Present Tense (Part 6 of 6)

March 25, 2018

Jesus’ triumphant procession amid the cheering crowds was a foretaste of the fulfillment of Philippians 2, when “every knee will bow” to give God the glory due Him. Jesus was able to accept their praises, even though He knew of His impending death on the cross. We are to follow His example and live in the now, giving God the glory He deserves today in spite of what may lie ahead in the future.


DEFINING MOMENTS: Facing Life’s Most Difficult Challenge (Part 5 of 6)

March 18, 2018

The Christian life brings inevitable challenges which our human nature causes us to trey and escape or avoid. If we are honest, we must admit that there is one person standing in the way of the life God has planned for us…ourselves! Jesus calls us to carry our cross and follow His example of suffering. In Christ, we can meet life’s challenges with courage and victory, dying to self by experiencing His resurrection power.


DEFINING MOMENTS: Courageous Leadership (Part 3 of 6)

March 4, 2018

When Jesus drove the money-changers from the temple, His goal was to make things right, not make Himself popular. In fact, according t0 Mark’s account, Jesus’ actions caused the religious leaders to begin plotting His death. When God calls out to us to lead, He supplies the courage we need to share the Gospel with a world that is hostile to it.
