Before The Gospels: Jesus In The Prophets
Series: Past Sermons

We’ve been looking in the Old Testament and have found that right from the beginning, Jesus was there. Jesus was at creation. He is the one who not only created everything but holds all creation together. Last week we looked at the law, the first five books of the bible. In those regulations of life that God gave us, we once again see Jesus. The perfection God deserves cannot be achieved on our own. We cannot be good enough to come to God. Which is why, God designed a way. That plan is Jesus. Since we cannot overcome evil, the need for Jesus in our lives was shown in the law. Before the Gospels, prophets foretold of Jesus. Join us as we see Jesus in the Prophets.

    Before the Gospels: Jesus In The Law
    Series: Past Sermons
    This year we are looking intently at the entire life of Jesus. But before we can dive into the Gospels, into Matthew Mark Luke and John, we need to look back into the Old Testament. Last week we looked at Jesus’ role in creation. Today we are going to see how Jesus is in the beginning of the bible. Not just in creation, but in the first few books of the bible. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Join us as we meet Jesus Before the Gospels in The Law. #stjoecoc #comeandsee #Foundation2023 #anunwaveringfaith

    Before The Gospels: Jesus In Creation
    Series: Past Sermons
    We are going to spend this year looking at the life of Jesus and there are lots of theories about Jesus. From a mythical, made-up person, a good teacher, an embellished person, a rebel against the jews, all the way to the Son of God. So, who is He? Was Jesus a real person? Were the facts about Jesus embellished, making Him more than He was? Did Jesus believe He was God? As we begin our journey of Foundation: An Unwavering Faith we are going to follow the life of Jesus, however Jesus’ life did not begin in the Gospels. Join us for Before the Gospels: Jesus in Creation. #stjoecoc #comeandsee #Foundation2023 #anunwaveringfaith

    New Year’s Day
    Series: Past Sermons
    How should we enter this new year? What should we do to make the most of this year? Typically, on the New Year’s Sunday sermon you hear a message about a new year and new you. Or something about new year’s resolutions. Instead, this year I wanted to look at what each of us individually and as a church should do to be prepared for this next year. We are going to unpack a few verses in Romans 13. #stjoecoc #comeandsee #Foundation2023 #anunwaveringfaith

    Purse: An Invitation to Worship
    Series: Past Sermons
    This month of November, we are going to continue to look through the Psalms, but focused more on the topic of worship. Worship has become something that happens at a particular time in a church service. Is that what worship is? Join us as we Purse: A Heart of Worship.  #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022

    Pusue: Faith In Crisis
    Series: Past Sermons
    Today we are going to look at Psalm 13. It is considered a Psalm of Lament, or Psalm of sorrow. In the book of Psalms where David is just singing praises to his God, his creator, but we also see it in many of those Psalms where David is in some sort of a pit.

    Series: Past Sermons
    Today, we are going to look at a more upbeat and uplifting Psalm. Not only that, it elevates man and woman to the status that they were created to have.  A status where they find themselves under the authority of God while being over the authority of all of God’s creation. Join us as we Purse: A Heart of Worship.

    Purse: Love Your Enemies
    Series: Past Sermons
    Some of you think you don’t have enemies. While you may not have an army setting up camp ready to bring tanks and bazookas against you. You do have enemies. People who don’t like you. People who oppose you. People who are against you. Sometimes others make it unavoidable for us to have enemies. David found it so. He faced many enemies in his life, beginning with the big Philistine Goliath. The Philistines as a whole, other neighboring countries, even his own son. Join us as we Purse: A Heart of Worship even in the presence of our enemies. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022

    Pursue: Songs of Ascent
    Series: Past Sermons
    These Psalms, the Songs of Ascent, were the songs families would sing together while on their way to the temple. They are the songs Jesus sang with His disciples while He was on His way up to Jerusalem for one of the feasts. Jesus had about a three year ministry with the disciples. So they went up to Jerusalem maybe as many as nine times together. Meaning Jesus most likely sang these psalms with the disciples.

    Purse: Help Me God
    Series: Past Sermons
    This year we have been studying the life of David. We have journeyed through the books of 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Kings, and 1 & 2 Chronicles. From there we moved on to the books of Psalms. God calls David a man after His own heart. This has catapulted David to be a recognized hero of the faith. But this has also pushed him to be considered above us, better than us. And yet as we looked through scriptures, we saw that David encountered times in his life where he chose to sin. Through David’s life, he constantly tripped himself into sins. Yet when he finally looked at his sin and then back into the holiness of God, David would worship God, repent and change the course of his own actions. This is what we see makes David a man after the heart of God. It is not that David’s heart was pure and holy, but that David’s inner desire, David’s ultimate goal was to be close to God.  Join us as we Pursue: A Heart of Worship. #stjoecofc #ComeAndSee #Pursue2022
