Please Join Us As We Begin A New Sermon Series “Last Things” On Sunday, August 6

by sgrimm

This week, at our 10:00 a.m. worship service, we begin a new sermon series “Last Things.”

We invite you to join us as we begin to explore the question — at the end of your life, how would you like to be remembered?

Rev. David J. Hanna will deliver the sermon “Last Things: Eulogy Virtues.”

In David Brooks’ introduction to his book, The Road to Character, he explains that the primary topic of the book is to make a distinction between what he calls résumé virtues and eulogy virtues. Most of our lives, in school and work, we are taught and encouraged to develop résumé virtues, such as professional skills, that help us attain successful careers. Brooks contends that eulogy virtues, how we are remembered, are too often overlooked. In 2 Timothy 4, Paul writes his own eulogy: I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith.

A more in-depth explanation of the new series is included attached article.

We hope to see you on Sunday!!!

This Sunday’s Sermon Discusses The Lessons Learned From Parable Of The Mustard Seed

by sgrimm

We welcome you to join us for the 10:00 a.m. worship service where Seminarian Ben Fitzgerald-Fye will deliver the sermon “This Little Light of Mine.”

The parable of the mustard seed reminds us of the joyful reality that God’s Kingdom resides even in the smallest places and offers the potential for enormous, transformative potential.  Faith can seem tiny and even remote to us; but, like the little light that we let shine, it begins to grow and spread until suddenly change is happening, lives are changing, and renewed hope is taking hold.

This Sunday also wraps up the 9:00 a.m. Christian Education program “Faith Alive! Practical Wisdom for Putting Love in Action: A Study of the Letter of James” led by Rev. Richard Cassel.

We hope to see you on Sunday!

This Sunday We Explore Paul’s Letter To The Corinthians In The Sermon “Alternative Realities”

by sgrimm

This Sunday, July 23 at the 10:00 a.m. worship service, Elder Barkley Butler will deliver the sermon “Alternative Realities”.

“Like many in today’s world, the people of the church at Corinth were divided on several issues. Also, like us, some felt that they knew more or knew better than others. What might we learn from Paul’s advice to the Corinthians that could help us heal the present divisions in our world? Is it knowledge that could bring us together, or love? And if love, what sort of love?”

This Sunday also will continue a four-week study “Faith Alive! Practical Wisdom for Putting Love in Action: A Study of the Letter of James” from 9:00 – 9:45 in the dining room led by Rev. Richard Cassel.

We extend a warm welcome to all to join us!
