Christian Crusaders with Rev. Steve Kramer


How to Be Great

Sunday, September 23, 2018

Rev. Steve Kramer

As human beings, we seem to be fascinated by the subject of greatness.  We talk of greatness in the world of sports. Historians talk of great statesmen, great Presidents.  In entertainment, we argue over who are the greatest actors or movies or bands of all time.  In our story for today we find Jesus giving His take on the subject of greatness. 


Following Jesus Means Denial - Sunday, September 16, 2018

It is music to our ears when we hear someone say to us, I'm all-in! Jesus, also, wants to hear and see this all-in attitude from His followers. He calls us to "take our our cross" - deny ourselves - and follow Him, which requires a very high commitment on our part. Let's talk more about this cross we must bear and the benefits of doing so in our message. 

Will God Really Give Me a Cadillac If I Ask? - Sunday, September 9, 2018

If you ask theologians what the most misused verse in the Bible is, many of them will likely reply it is Luke 11:9 – “Ask and it will be given . . .”  As with any Bible verse, it can be lifted out of its specific context and made to fit a particular theological slant. However, that is a dangerous thing to do. Join us as we discover the context and story behind this popular verse.

God's Plan for Us - Sunday, September 2, 2018

In all likelihood, you are probably familiar with these words from Scripture: “For surely I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.” They are beautiful, comforting words, but we need to ask, What are they really all about? What is their meaning for us? 

Holding Hope Through Tears - Sunday, August 26, 2018

How do we hold on to hope? How do we rise above despair to be faithful to what God asks us to do? Discouragement is a part of life.  It can consume our spirit and make us want to quit. Let’s look at Jeremiah’s faith journey to learn that which will empower and inform our journey of faith today. 

A Deeper Pause - Sunday, August 19, 2018

Life is like a bike tire. We don't intentionally take air out, it just leaves. And just as it's harder to peddle with flat tires, it's not as fun to live when the air has leaked out of our lives. Life has a way of deflating us.  It is to the people who are feeling like flat tires that a sweet invitation comes today. "Come to me all who weary and are carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest."

God Insists - Sunday, August 12, 2018

We live in a world of Go, Go, Go! So much to do in so little time. In the midst of our busyness, God calls on us to take time to rest, to build a pause into our life. Our message for today - Pause: God Insists. 

A Deeper Certainty - Sunday, August 5, 2018

Have you ever heard the saying, The older I get, the less I know? Just when we think we've learned all the answers, someone changes the questions. Life, it seems, is full of the unknown.  But happily, St. John has some wonderful things we can know with certainty. Let's learn what they are in the last study of our "Deeper" series. 

A Deeper Love - Sunday, July 22, 2018

What are the marks of a Christian life? We are going to look at one of those marks in our message today as we continue our sermon series entitled, “Deeper.” 

A Deeper Hope for God's Children - Sunday, July 15, 2018

It is important for believers in Jesus Christ to remember who and whose they are – a child of God – precious in His sight with a glorious future. They can look forward to a date when they will meet Him face to face. They have become children of God, born again to live their days confident with a deep hope.
