Sermon Preview and Playlist for December 5: "He Drove Out the Man"

We are all lonely exiles here. Part of what it means to become a Christian is to understand this simple truth. This world for all of its wonder and beauty is ultimately a corrupted place because we are a corrupted race. This Sunday we begin a five-part series, Out of Our Loney Exile, a title that takes its cue from the song, “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.” We will begin at the beginning of the Bible and work our way to the end, tracing our movement from the garden to the new creation, a story of exile and deliverance. This would be a great time to invite a friend or a neighbor. Read Genesis 3 ahead of Sunday and join us. 

Listen ahead with our Sunday at Heritage Spotify Playlist. Learn about how to receive an email for our livestream on the Heritage Resume page.

Christmas Sermon Series: Out of Our Lonely Exile

That famous carol begins this way: “O come, O come, Emmanuel and ransom captive Israel; that mourns in lonely exile here until the Son of God appear.” Lonely exile. That’s one way to describe life east of Eden. This lonely exile is what Jesus came to ransom us from. Join us for a five-part series starting December 5, Out of Our Lonely Exile. This is an interlude in our series through 1 Peter to explore a theme that informs his encouragement of the church through his letter. We are “elect exiles” and Jesus is leading us home. This is a great time of year to invite your family, friends, and neighbors. To help you know how to pray, here’s the preaching plan for the coming weeks:

  • December 5: “How did we get here?” (Gen. 3)
  • December 12: “Who can get us home?” (Gen. 12)
  • December 19: “How will the Lord ransom us?” (Isa. 53)
  • December 26: “When will our ransomer come?” (Matt. 2)
  • January 2: “What will it be like to be home?” (Rev. 22)

May the Lord ransom sinners and bring them home.

Scripture & Song: King of Angels

Make your plans to join us for a Christmas service, Scripture and Song: King of Angels, Sunday, December 12, at 4:30 p.m. Through a lessons and carols format of music and Scripture readings, we will celebrate the story of God’s redemptive plan for mankind through the coming of our Savior. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to invite friends, family, and neighbors to hear the story of the incarnation of Jesus. Following the service, we will have a churchwide supper in the Fellowship Hall. If you plan to attend the supper, an RSVP is required.
