What are your services like?
Our Sunday morning worship services have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. From the moment you enter the building, you can expect to be greeted and handed a bulletin detailing some of the week’s upcoming events. People tend to visit in the foyer before the service and sit wherever there is room when the service begins at 10:30. Once the service begins, expect to hear a great mix of songs, a story, prayer, perhaps a creative surprise mixed in now and again, and the Bible read with relevant applicable thoughts gleaned from the text. We wrap things up shortly before noon. At that point, feel free to slip out quickly, or stick around and enjoy meeting a new friend or two after the service.
What’s up this weekend?
February 23/20 –Old Stories to Shape New Identity
Scripture: Nehemiah 9
Ezra and Nehemiah caught God’s vision, leading them to embark on the journey of rebuilding the faith and identity of a people group. Rebuilding the walls around Jerusalem was an enormous accomplishment toward that end. That project behind them, they intentionally took the time to look back at their lives together and identify the unmistakable hand of God along the way.
This morning we will enter into the walk down memory lane Nehemiah and Ezra invited the people to take. However, we will not stop there as at this point in history, we are blessed with so many more chapters in the story of redemption. The service today will in some ways reflect the reminiscing that takes place around a holiday meal as relatives bring out again some of their favorite stories from the past as well as share glimpses into future hopes and plans. It is true, old stories can shape new identities.
What’s up next weekend?
March 1/20 – The Submission Revolution
Scripture: Nehemiah 9:33-10:39
Ezra and Nehemiah caught God’s vision, leading them to embark on the journey of rebuilding the faith and identity of a people group. Rebuilding the walls around Jerusalem was an enormous accomplishment toward that end. That project behind them, they pondered the choices they and their ancestors made that led to their mixed up identity, and slavery as God’s people.
This morning we will see that submission, not abandon, is the route to freedom. Submission to God that brazenly defies cultures pull and old-nature tendencies is a revolution worth fighting. In today’s passage we see courageous warriors engaging in the submission revolution!
