Sermons for April 2015

Sunday, April 5, 2015 Easter Sunday

Scriptures

            Isaiah 25: 6- 9

            Acts 10: 34- 43

            Mark 16: 1- 18

Sermon Title:  “Does It End There?”

This Sunday we will be celebrating Easter Sunday, the holiest day of the Christian Calendar and the day that we celebrate Jesus Christ Rising from the Dead and showing Himself to the Disciple and to individual followers all around Jerusalem. But is this the end of the story? Does Jesus’ mission and message end here? And will the Disciples and their fellow believers believe their eyes, and will those who weren’t there think they’re crazy or insane? And do we really believe in the Easter story?

Sunday, April 12, 2015

Scriptures:

            1 John 1: 1: 1- 2: 2

            Acts 4: 32- 35

            John 20: 19- 31

Sermon Title:   “So, I Send You”

This Sunday we will be looking at Jesus’ appearance to the Disciples in the Upper Room, a room that is locked and bolted. It is here that Jesus first tells these scared and frightened young people outside of their safe little room. Just as they were sent out of their comfort zone, so are we called to step out boldly from the safety of our church building into a world that doesn’t all look like us, doesn’t act or think like us, but sure does need to hear the radical Good News of Jesus Christ.  

Sunday, April 19, 2015

Scriptures

            1 John 3: 1- 7

            Acts 3: 12- 19

            Luke 24: 36- 49

Sermon Title:   “Peace Be With You”

This Sunday we will look at another story of Jesus meeting with the Disciples on the Day of His Resurrection. Here He shows them that it is really Him and also shows them that He is still human and is really alive. He then opens their minds to learn the Gospel that they themselves will soon spread to the four corners of the known world. But first they will need an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, so that these frightened people will have the courage to change the world. It is the same for us. Evangelists and Preachers aren’t special people, just ordinary folks given the Grace to do the extraordinary.

Sunday, April 26, 2015   55th Anniversary and Senior Recognition Sunday

Scriptures

            1 John 3: 16- 24

            Acts 4: 5- 12

            John 10: 11- 18

Sermon Title:   “I Lay It Down”

This Sunday we will be celebrating the 55th Anniversary of the merger of St. Paul’s Evangelical and Reformed Church and the Boston Community Church to form Faith United Church of Christ. We will also be recognizing our long-time and senior members. We will then have a luncheon in the Fellowship Hall. Come and join our celebration. And see what Christ and the Holy Spirit can do.

 

Faith UCC, Boston NY Church Family

Faith Church adopted the motto "A Friendly Family of Faith" several years ago. We seek to live it out as individuals and as a congregation. Newcomers many times mention the warm welcome that they receive when they attend worship and they soon feel comfortable amongst our members. There is a real feeling of being part of a family. Faith is not only the name of the Church but it is also the way we live out our relationship with Jesus Christ in everyday life.

Our church family encompasses the towns of Boston, Springville, Colden, Orchard Park, Hamburg, East Aurora, Eden, Buffalo, Alden, and East Concord. Our hospitality is extended to people of many religious backgrounds including Roman Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist, and Lutheran. As a United Church of Christ, serving a multi-generational church community, Faith strives to welcome everyone no matter where they are on their journey of faith or of life.

So welcome to "A Friendly Family of Faith!"

No Matter Where You Are On Life's Journey, You Are Welcome Here.
