Graduation Sermons

1. Fight for Your Dream, by Mark Batterson

You have gifts and abilities that you aren’t even aware of, but they are often buried beneath perceived weaknesses. In those disadvantages, dreams are playing hide-and-seek.

2. Winning With People: Offer Your Very Best, by John Maxwell

Epaphroditus would be considered one of the “nobodies” in scripture. He never wrote a book in the Bible, nor is he mentioned anywhere else. He never had a statue erected in his honor or became famous for his accomplishments. However, Paul called Epaphroditus a hero.

3. I Quit Making Excuses, by Herbert Cooper

One thing that I’m convinced of, is that I haven’t arrived yet. I haven’t accomplished all that God has for me; And you haven’t either. The fact that we’re still alive means God has more for us.

4. Discover How to Build Your Life 

Instructions from Jesus on how to build your life – used on Sunday we honored our graduates.

5. Beware of Taking Shortcuts

Today we are going to recognize those who have been promoted and those who have graduated and reached a new milestone in their lives. This sermon encourages us to avoid taking shortcuts to get things at the expense of our spiritual lives.

6. Graduation: Don’t Sell Your Birthright

This is a graduations service. Let me ask you a question: Do you treasure your relationship with Christ above all other relationships? Is Jesus more important to you than anything else?

7. A Step to Move Forward

Moving forward involves stepping. We are all familiar in the saying “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”, and I know we all agree with that. Graduating seniors, I’m happy to share to you one of the greatest stories in the Bible that we all can learn from.
