May 7: 4th Sunday of Easter
John 10:1-10 “Hey Porter!” This rich parable has a special meaning to the resurrected Church. Where are you in this story? I want to be the gatekeeper.
May 14: 5th Sunday of Easter Mother’s Day
John 14:1-14 “Which Way’s What” Followership is the first step in leadership and discipleship. What way do we go and how do we know? This is a lesson in listening to the Holy Spirit.
1 Peter 3:13-22 “Free to Obey” Obedience isn’t giving in and being tied down. There is great freedom in knowing Christ through obedience.
May 28: Conference Sunday, Confirmation Sunday
Acts 1:1-11 “Lifted to life” Jesus was lifted to his rightful place-he did not jump up there. In Christ we are lifted up. Not by our own strength, but the very hand of God’s grace. This marks a new year for us to minister together!
We will continue to discuss the many tools that God gives us to discern our life’s direction Concentrating God’s word as our compass and the Holy Spirit as Guide. We will cut the clutter and discuss as much about what the Bible doesn’t say as what it does say. We will hone our discernment skills to refine our “Vision Statement” as a congregation and to develop our personal life statement as well. Come and see us at 10:oo worship!
- October 4: Exodus 3:1-15 “Tell Them I-Am Sent You”
The word of the day: God’s Direction for our lives and our congregation. This direction is Knowable and Do-able. What God requires, God Directs and provides. Moses was endorsed by God, and In Christ, so are we.
- October 11: “Laity Sunday!”The message will be brought by Lay Person Jackie Fitzgerald from 1 Peter 4:10-11. Judi Yarbrough will also present a mission report in word and photos.
- “October 18: 21st: Mark 10:17-31 ”Oh, Come on….You know this!”We know the basics of Christ, some of us even from childhood, but we still have to be reminded of them from time to time.
- October 25: James 3:1-12 “But we must all learn”Not all can or should teach. It is a gift and a craft. BUT we must all learn from our many teachers. Christ is teaching all things everywhere. Listen, and learn…..
