We begin a new series today entitled “Doing Life Together”. We begin with a surprise! A new logo for Bethel Lutheran Church. In this message, you will hear the reasons for a new logo and what it means. You can see this logo on our website at https://www.bethelcupertino.org/2019_logo/description.php
Christ is Risen! What does that mean for us today? Listen in and find out!
Good Friday is not known as a day to exchange gifts but I want to change that. On this day we received the greatest gift ever.
We arrived at our destination…Jerusalem. It is Palm Sunday and we discover false expectations and a false narrative that runs counter to what Jesus is about to do for humanity. What false narratives do we tell ourselves? Is there anything we need to let go of?
We have been following Jesus as he makes his way towards Jerusalem and his death. On the road, Jesus predicts his death once again and the disciples still struggle comprehend Jesus’ mission. Lots to learn from Jesus in this message!
We continue to follow Jesus as he slowly makes his way toward Jerusalem. Today we find him across the Jordan river talking a crowd and then to a specific individual with personal obstacle to following Jesus. We may not have the same obstacle but we have something to learn from him.
Jesus is on the move! Today we find him in Capernaum talking to his disciples about greatness. Listen in and discover the secret of being great!
As we enter the season of Lent, we are going to follow Jesus from Mount Tabor all the way to Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Today we begin at the foot of Mount Tabor where we learn what happens when we are ineffective. We are reminded to keep our eyes on Jesus!
We take a look at Bethel’s 2019 theme verse on love today. This has huge theological implications for us as Christians. This was brought home to us in the decisions made at the Methodist Church conference last week. Click here for the notes: https://benbergren.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/Theme-Verse-2019.pdf
We finish the sermon series on Daniel in chapter 6. The most famous of all the stories: Daniel and the Lion’s Den. Find out what kind of lion’s dens there are in our lives.
