Take My Keys...Please!! 

Sunday Sermon Series - January 10 to February 14, 2021

Keys-2The uncertainty that the events of 2020 have introduced into our lives has challenged us physically, mentally, and spiritually; we yearn to be in control.  Our desire to be in the driver’s seat often means that our Lord, our God, is pushed to the passenger’s seat or even the back seat.  As we enter 2021, we recognize His call on our lives to trust Him, to let Him be in control.  This series examines the Beatitudes of Matthew 5, and reminds us, to say with sincerity,” Lord - Take My Keys…Please!!”

                                          2021 Bible Reading Plan
BibleSt. John believes that Bible Reading is important, nourishes, and that God’s Word always has effect.  To encourage people to read their Bibles, LCMS has an online Bible Reading Plan for 2021.  Missing a day or two, or even a week, does not mean failure - the idea is to keep reading, as time permits.
