The Worship themes for the fall season will be looking through the lenses of scripture and a popular TV series, This is Us. This show is drawing significant viewers from the 18 to 40 year old demographic. Part of the success, some will say, is the superb acting and ‘crisp’ script. Russell Moore in The Washington Post says: “The secret to This is Us is less about ogling some other strange, dysfunctional family as it is about seeing in it our own.” We all journey this life and in so many ways we share a common story; stories of struggles, and heartbreak, but also stories of courage and triumph through love.
We hope our sermon series will challenge us to be incredibly honest with God, and one another about who we are, and who we are called to be. Together, we hope you enjoy the journey and we hope you will grow deeper in your life story and faith.
Our summer theme was Hospitality and Summer Self-care. The New Testament word for “HOSPITALITY” (Greek philozenia) comes from the compound of “love” and “stranger”. Hospitality has it’s origins literally, in love for outsiders. Hospitality can come natural for some and be a challenge for others. Join us on a journey of personal and communal growth this summer as we explore ways to cultivate a heart for hospitality.
Plus, this summer we’ll focus some Sunday services on our “Summer Self-Care Challenge”. Everyone who cares for others must all take time for ‘self-nourishing care’. Join us as we pay closer attention to how we live each day and strive to live abundantly in the ways of Jesus.
