Sermon Series: God's Story + Your Story = Great Joy - starting on November 25
Christmas is supposed to be the season of joy. But far too often the holidays remind us of what is missing in our lives…joy. We try and fill the emptiness with the stuff we buy, the parties we attend, or the relationships around us. But none of these things can satisfy. To really experience internal joy requires a change of perspective…seeing the world through different eyes. Christmas is the invitation to rethink our personal story and find ourselves in God’s story. This change in thinking can bring us great joy regardless of our circumstances or stresses.
Sermon Series: Gather Together - begins on October 28
What is church? Why is it important to be part of a church? Does church make a difference? According to the Barna Group, the adult population in the United States has grown by 15% since 1991. During that same period, the number of adults who do not attend church has nearly doubled, rising from 39 million to 75 million – a 92% increase! The researcher noted, “Unchurched people are not just lazy or uninformed. They are wholly disinterested in church life – often passionately so.” As followers of Jesus, we are called to engage with a culture that has become not just disinterested but many times hostile to church. So where do we start? Beginning on Sunday, October 28, Pastor Josh will begin a four-part series titled “Gather Together…Why Church?” Come and take steps to experience the transformational power of Jesus’ church.
As part of our sermon series, we are inviting everyone in our church to attend a "Gather Together Dinner." Signup sheets are available in the church lobby or click the link below to sign up now. If you are interested in hosting or facilitating a dinner, please contact Zussette Rozin at email@example.com.
