Join us as Pastor Todd continues his sermon series on “The Exciting Church!” God’s heart is that his church is full of joy and excitement. It is God’s plan that lives are transformed in exciting ways through the church. This series will explore, over 9 weeks, the various aspects of the church that make her the most exciting place to be.
July 21 – “The Exciting Church: Where People Love Unconditionally” 1 John 4:7-21
Jesus said that the world would know that we are his disciples by the way we show love for each other. When we show love and compassion for others, this is the church at her best and most exciting. If anything exemplifies Jesus, it is real, authentic love.
July 28 – Music Makers Sunday – “God of this City”
The children enrolled in Music Makers will perform this musical at both the 8:30 and 11:00 am services. Be sure to arrive early to get a good seat to enjoy a great performance by our Music Makers Summer Music and Drama Campers. Always a big event!
August 4 – “The Exciting Church: Where People Grow in Faith” Matthew 13: 1-9
Growing in faith is part of the spiritual experience. We need each other to do this. Being part of the exciting church is to grow deeper in the knowledge and love of God. Note: This is Promotion Sunday, a special day when students “move up” to their new grade and Sunday School class. Join with us, as we offer a special Blessing of all Teachers and Students during worship!
August 11 – “The Exciting Church: Where People Pray” James 5:13-16
The exciting church does not function under human power, but by the power of God’s Holy Spirit. In prayer, we seek God’s will for both the church and our personal lives. In prayer we seek to become present to the presence of God among us. The church is exciting the the Holy Spirit leads the way! Note: During the early service, student Bibles will be presented to all children going into the second and third grades.
August 18 – “The Exciting Church: Where People Gather” Acts 2:43-47
The church is God’s idea. It is God’s idea that we do not live the spiritual life alone. We are not designed to do this by ourselves. To be the exciting church is to be part of a community.
August 25 – “The Exciting Church: Where People Worship” Isaiah 6:1-8
Authentic worship can happen anywhere because it happens in the hearts and lives of people. True worship is when we worship God with our both our hearts and minds. It involves both our emotions and our intellect. One thing I love about the Exciting Church is that it allows me to bring my whole self to worship – questions and all. Worship is the appropriate response of the created to the creator and we worship together in creative and different ways.
