Releasing God's Blessings

November 6th - 20th, 2022

We often think of blessings as things we receive. While it is true that God, by grace, freely gives us all that we have, we are not just passive recipients of God’s blessings! Just as God blesses us through people in our lives, so does God promise to bless others through us. When we live from a place of gratitude for God’s gifts and trust in God’s provision, we can be agents of God’s blessing in our world. Join us from November 6 – 20 as we explore this year’s stewardship series.

WEEK 3

What are the possibilities when you release the blessings you have been given and they overflow into the world?

November 27th:

Overflowing Blessings

2 Corinthians 9:11-15

WEEK 2

November 13th:

Blessed People Bless Others 

2 Corinthians 9:6-10

All that we are and all that we have come from God. We are stewards through whom God is blessing the world. In honor of Veterans Day, we will also recognize those men and women from St. Thomas who have served in our armed forces through special music, prayer, and a reprise of the slide show from 2021.

WEEK 1

November 6th:

A Legacy of Blessings: 

"I Know Who I Am”

2 Corinthians 9:1-5

Through Jesus’ gift of salvation we are called to live into our legacy of giving generously of the grace we have received. We will also celebrate All Saints Day and the saints from St. Thomas who have gone on to glory in the past year.

PAST SERMON SERIES'

Creepy Tales from the Bible

October 9th - 30th

Halloween is one of the most popular holidays in the United States; it is hard to escape its influence on our culture.
Rather than avoid Halloween, during this season we remember that Christ is the light in the darkness, and God tells us: do not be afraid.

The Case For Christ

September 11th - October 2nd

Discover the real evidence of Jesus’ death and resurrection!  Whether you are a skeptic or have been a Christian for years, you will be touched by the true story of an award-winning investigative journalist (Lee Strobel)—and avowed atheist—who applies his well-honed journalistic and legal skills to disprove the newfound Christian faith of his wife…. with unexpected, life-altering results.

Starting Sunday, September 11, St. Thomas will begin a four-week sermon series at both services based on the major motion picture, The Case For Christ. Wherever you are at with your faith and questions, you won’t be the same after you discover the evidence for yourself!

HEALING & NEW LIFE

July 31st - September 4th

There are no easy answers when we experience trauma, but as Christians we are called to share a message of hope and show Christ’s unconditional love to our brothers and sisters who are struggling with the realities of this life – divorce, illness, violence, job loss and the like.  We share God’s light and love so that all in our community may experience healing and new life through Christ.  Whether we are facing our own suffering or helping someone else face suffering, God calls us to trust and allow him to direct our steps. His love for us is what calls us to confidence and hope; even while it may seem that our suffering is insurmountable, it will not be forever.  During this six-week series beginning July 31, Pastor Abi will focus not only on the challenge of suffering but also on how God equips us to face trauma by relying on the Holy Spirit, in community with other believers.
