Exodus 3:1-15 - More Than a Bush That Burns

Exodus 3:1-15 - More Than a Bush That Burns


On Sunday, March 24th, at Lord and Savior Ev. Lutheran Church in Crystal Lake, Pastor David Carlovsky will preach on the  Old Testament lesson for that Sunday, Exodus 3:1-8b,10-15. This is the story of Moses, who had been shepherding sheep for 40 years when he saw something he had never seen before — a burning bush that didn’t wasn’t consumed by the flames.  Before the day was done, that shepherd knew he had come face-to-face with so much more than a bush that burns!

The sermon theme will be:  "MORE THAN A BUSH THAT BURNS!”

I. His glory burns around us!

II. He makes our hearts burn within us!

John 19:14-18 - Take Him Away!

The fourth Wednesday-evening Lenten service, on March 27th, will continue this year’s theme of  "Three Words of Truth." Pastor Bill Schubert, the new pastor at Heritage, Lindenhurst, IL, will be preaching on "TAKE HIM AWAY!” (John 19:14-18)

1 Corinthians 1:18-25 - What’s the Cross to You?

The following Sunday, March 31st, Pastor Carlovsky will preach on the Epistle lesson for that Sunday, 1 Corinthians 1:18-25. The apostle Paul, himself a Jewish Christian, writes that  "Christ crucified" is "a stumbling block” — in the Greek, a “skandalon” — a scandal —  to Jews.” The sermon will highlight how so much of our 2019 world views the cross as nonsensical and foolishness.

Pastor Carlovsky will use this question as the theme: "WHAT'S THE CROSS TO YOU?”   

I. A stumbling block?   

II. Foolishness?

Matthew 26:20-25 - Is It I?

The fifth midweek Lenten service, on April 3rd, will be led by Pastor Thomas Schultz, pastor at Christ the King, Palatine, IL. His “three words of truth” that Wednesday evening will be  "IS IT I?”   (Matthew 26:20-25)
