Current Sermon Series
For the next several weeks, we will examine what it means to be a part of a genuine Christian faith community. We will be looking at the Biblical challenges that were and those we face today. The Church (capital “C”) refers to the global-one-in-Christ-universal-conglomeration of Christians, making up between one-third and one-fourth of all the world. The church (lower case “c”) refers to the local faith community we mean when we say “my church.” I will be referring to both each week. My hope is that all of us will better understand what it takes to be the kind of Church/church that is best at serving our own needs, and the needs of the world.
Lent is a special and sacred time in which we enter into a traditional season of preparation for Easter. For the next month and a half, we will be encouraging you to “take on” or “give up” something for Lent that hopefully will challenge you to become more like Jesus: give more $ to “alms” (an old word for offering for the poor), take up a new book or Bible study, prayer and devotion time, act of service to someone or something, or give up an unhealthy habit, or create your own discipline.
