Did You Ask Me Why? March 29, 2009 Did You Ask Me Why? John 12:27-28 Sermon Synopsis: Children like to ask the question “Why?” I suppose we all do. This message deals with some of the answers about Jesus’ journey to Calvary. Why did the Geeks coming to see Jesus tell Jesus that it was time. Knowing what lay ahead, why was Jesus willing to be obedient to his Heavenly Father? Why the voice? The Hebrews passage gives a lot of possibilities for answers. Everything about Jesus made him better than any other alternative. He provided the way of salvation to who every will come. Have you responded to his invitation? Why not? Time is running out. Scripture References (NIV): John 12:20-33; Heb 5:5-10 Grace and peace to you in Christ Jesus, Dr. Sonny Strange, Pastor Emmanuel Baptist Church 1916 Overlook Ave., Jefferson City, TN 37760 Phone (865) 475-9424 Sermon podcasts available online at www.emmanueljeffcity.com

Celebration of Church March 15, 2009 Celebration of Church Dedication of Renovated Baptistry and Baptism, Deacon Ministry, The Lord’s Supper Text Sermon Synopsis: This year Baptists around the world are celebrating the 400th anniversary of the Baptist Movement. Today’s service will celebrate three distinctive of the Baptist Church: baptism, deacon ministry and Lord’s Supper. We are Baptist partly because we celebrate the distinctive of believer’s baptism. The church works to bring people to faith in Jesus Christ and attempts to lead new believers to make a public profession of their faith. Then, in obedience to the command of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ believers are baptized (immersed in water) as a “living sign” of their death, burial and resurrection with Christ. It is a public celebration of faith. We have a newly renovated baptistry at Emmanuel and today we dedicate it with a baptism service. A second part of our worship will feature Emmanuel’s deacon ministry. Deacons are, as the name implies, servants of the congregation and minister to various needs of people in the church. A third part of our worship will feature a celebration of the Lord’s Supper. Like baptism, the “breaking of bread” has been celebrated by people of faith since the very beginning. This service is also identified as The Last Supper, Eucharist, or communion. It is a celebration in remembrance of Jesus Christ. We invite people to receive Jesus, broken so that they might be made whole. Participants receive a small piece of bread as a “living sign” of their acceptance of Jesus into their life. And they receive a small cup of grape juice as a “living sign” of entering into the New Covenant of life through the blood of Jesus Christ.
