Sermons for January 2015

Sunday, January 4, 2015

Scriptures

            Jeremiah 31: 7- 14

            Ephesians 1: 3- 14

            Matthew 2: 1- 12

Sermon Title:  “One, Born King Of The Jews”

This Sunday we will be celebrating Three Kings Sunday. Three Kings Sunday  is when we remember the Magi (no, it wasn’t actually Three Kings, that came later as Kings became the highest position in the Medieval Church)  who traveled over a thousand miles following the Christmas star to visit, honor and worship the new born Christ child. We will look at the amazing story of these foreign visitors who knew that a King had been born, all the while those with knowledge of the scriptures and the prophesy of the Messiah, had no clue that it had happen. Again, the Holy Spirit working through the marginal and the outsiders.

Sunday, January 11, 2015

Scriptures:

            Genesis 1: 1- 5

            Acts 19: 1- 7

            Mark 1: 4- 11

Sermon Title:   “You Are My Child”

This Sunday we will be celebrating the Baptism of Jesus by His cousin John down at the Jordan River.(Really it’s more like the Jordan Creek.) We will look at why this was done, and why do we still do Baptism, and how does it affect our lives. Also, what does it mean to be baptized by the Holy Spirit? Is that weird or just something normal for those who are called to be Christ’s disciples?

Sunday, January 18, 2015

Scriptures

            1 Samuel 3: 1- 10

            1 Corinthians 6: 12- 20

            John 1: 43- 51

Sermon Title:   “Can Anything Good Come?”

This Sunday we will look at the story of Jesus meeting Philip and Nathanael. This is an interesting tale where Nathanael asked the question if there is anything good that can possibly come from the town that Jesus was from. Isn’t that something each of us do a lot? We make a split-second decision based on whether the message or the person is any good or worth listening to, just based on who has said it or what kind of person they are, be it race, religion or ethnic group or even where they are from. Jesus just reminds us to keep an open mind and to overcome our pre-conceived notions and prejudices.

Sunday, January 25, 2015

Scriptures

           1 Corinthians 12: 1- 11

            Matthew 25: 31- 46

           Matthew 28: 19- 20

Sermon Title: " Do Everything I Taught You"

Come and find out this Sunday why and where our church is at. This Sunday will be our annual Meeting and Elections. All members are requested to attend, and we will worshipfully conduct the business of Faith United Church of Christ for this next year. In the Sermon, see what we, the Church, is called to be. To be people called to live out our gifts, to care for the least of these, the outsider and the sick and to be in Mission to others, Proclaiming, Teaching and Servicing inside and outside the walls of the church building.

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.
