This fall our sermon series will focus on three aspects of living as a “Christ-centered, Holy Spirit-led community.” Our vision states that we will “employ our gifts to meet the needs of individuals and families, empowering people to grow into mature followers of Jesus.” These three themes will help us move closer towards that reality.
We will spend two weeks talking about how to live as “Peacemakers” within our families, places of work, schools, church and wider community.
Then we will explore how worship is central to helping us deepen our spiritual lives. Worship is not something that just happens. It takes effort on our part, it is a lifestyle, and we will talk about how worship can be life transforming.
Finally we will spend three weeks thinking about how to grow in generosity. We believe we are called to live and move as generous people within our world. How do we generously give from what God has blessed us?
