Sermon Themes for SEPTEMBER 2018

 The first Sunday in September (Sept. 2), we return to our regular worship schedule of 9:30 am coffee fellowship, 10 am Sunday School and 11 am worship.  For the first half of September, our worship focus returns to the topics of Spiritual Disciplines.

September 2 (Labor Day) – Spiritual Discipline of Rest – Psalm 62:5-12
September 9 – Spiritual Discipline of Stewardship – 2 Cor. 9:6-15
September 16 – Spiritual Discipline of Unity (Peace Sunday) – Romans 12:14-21

Then, beginning the second half of the month and into the month of October, we will be starting a worship series called Sacred Earth – Sacred Work.  We will make use of additional music as we did during Lent.  The creators of this series describe it this way:  “In Creation Spirituality, we will explore a way of living within the community of earth that deepens our reverence for life, participates in the creativity of the Divine, and develops our passion for justice and human transformation.”  In other words, we will affirm God’s declaration that creation is “supremely good,” and that we are called to be that goodness in and for the world.  I am really looking forward to this and hope you will make it a priority to join us!

September 23 – Creation as Blessing – Genesis 1:1 – 2:4
September 30 – Spirit of Compassion – Mark 12:28-34


We are working to make videos of our Sunday sermons available online.  Stay tuned for that exciting development.
