What does it mean to follow Jesus? And how does it happen? And what does Jesus enjoy about the process? We will explore this together Sunday, October 17, with the livestream beginning at 10:45 am.
Jesus said, “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” (John 20:21) I bet the disciples wondered: but where are we going? Jesus clear call is to go the ends of the earth with the good news of God's love and Jesus' resurrection from the dead. But is that the only place his followers are to go? Let's look at what Jesus said as we continue our 8 week series on the Great Commission. This worship service will be live at 10:45 am, Sunday, October 10, 2021.
Last Sunday we encountered the beginning of Jesus’ words to his disciples commissioning them (and us!) to make disciples. Just as the Father sent Jesus, so Jesus is sending us — we are commissioned! We will explore that more in Scripture, song, and the sacrament Sunday, October 3, live-streamed beginning at 10:45 a.m.
One of the remarkable things about Jesus that often gets overlooked is that bothered to show up at all. We are sent because Jesus was sent. Let's work through the implications of this together in worship on Sunday, September 26, 2021, beginning at 10:45am.
It's easy to love the people we like, and we are right to do so. Jesus also calls us to love the people in our lives who we don't like so much. How can we sustain the effort to love the "unloveable" people in our lives? We pursue that in worship Sunday, September 19 at 10:45.
The beginning of the school year is a great time to re-energize and refocus: What do we need to know? And how can we learn what we were created to do? As followers of Jesus we are intensely interested in what he has to say to us. Our worship together will focus on what Jesus clearly says is The Main Thing. Note that our worship time now shifts to 10:45 am.
Labor Day Weekend reminds us that work is a never-ending part of life. Why is it so wearying? Does it have to be? What does Jesus say about this part of our daily experience? Join us for worship Sunday, September 5, 2021 at 9:30am.
Jesus was unfailingly kind and gentle to those who were in need, but he was also stern in his warning against a particular kind of danger to the human soul and human society. We will explore his warning against two never-ending dangers in our worship service for Sunday, August 29 beginning at 9:30 am.
God is working among his people in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and we are a part of that. Dr. Eric Gunnoe brings us an update on the work there as a part of our worship service 9:30 am Sunday, August 22, 2021
