Fall is one of the busiest and important seasons for the church, whether that is with an influx of new visitors, or your congregation members returning from their summer breaks and settling kids into the new school year. This is also a great time to begin a new sermon series and begin to plan the preaching schedule in the months leading up to the holiday season.
To help you plan out the next few months in your preaching schedule, we have compiled a list of 10 sermon series that are perfect to use from August to December.
1. Let’s Talk About It: Stigmas in the Church
God offers believers healing and hope instead of condemnation as they struggle with mental health, physical health, singleness and infertility, and aging.
This four-week series tackles a different social stigma each week.
2. Til Death Do Us Part
With much of our culture having various understandings of marriage, its benefits, and its value, this series will cover God’s intention for the marriage relationship and why it’s more than an expression of love but also one of sacrifice and purpose.
This four-week series will explore a biblical understanding of what it means to be married in today’s world.
3. Parent Guilt: Dealing with the Weight of Parenting
The Bible encourages believers to understand parenting as a picture of the gospel. Humans were created for connection. And even when the Christian parent feels shame for not getting it right every time, there is always grace-based hope for repairing the rupture.
4. When God Doesn’t: The Book of Habakkuk
In this four-week series, Habakkuk begins by complaining and questioning God, who seems silent and unconcerned for his people. In the end, Habakkuk’s complaint gives way to a beautiful trust in God that is not based upon the prophet’s circumstances.
5. The Unsaved Christian
(based on the book by Dean Inserra)
This four-week series, based on the book The Unsaved Christian by Dean Inserra, will help Christians cultivate a deeper understanding of cultural Christianity. It will also challenge listeners to dig deep into their commitment to Christ, and verify whether they truly are Christians. It will also help believers understand how to witness to cultural Christians.
Based on The Unsaved Christian: Reaching Cultural Christianity with the Gospel by Dean Inserra, Moody Publishers, 2019. Used by permission. https://www.moodypublishers.com/books/current-issues/the-unsaved-christian/
This series delves into some popular misunderstandings about what the Bible has to say and what Christianity is all about.
This is a five-week sermon series exploring misunderstood and misquoted bible verses about topics such as christlikeness, covenants, suffering, and social justice.
7. All In: Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength
This five-week series examines Mark 12:30 and the command to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves.
8. The Fear of God
This four-week series examines what it means to “fear” God. Through understanding the difference between our cultural definition of fear and the biblical meaning, we can understand that the “fear of God” is central to the Christian life.
9. Thanks and Giving
This three-week Thanksgiving series addresses how we can develop a heart of gratitude to God, which in turn leads to generous giving.
10. Christmas Playlist
This four-week series tells the Christmas story through a topical lens. Jesus’s birth was the catalyst for the believer to find hope in difficult times, true belonging, peace, and eternal heart change through a right relationship with God. Each week, a popular Christmas song will be used as an illustration of the passage and the sermon’s big idea.
