GROWING UP SACRAMENTAL
Participating in Christ from Birth to Death
Spring 2021 Sermon Series
After a year like 2020, many of us are hungry for renewal. We want good news and healing from Jesus, but our days feel bland and disconnected. How can we connect the dots between the abundant life of Jesus and our own broken, tired and overly-digitized lives?
Growing Up Sacramental is an interactive teaching series about the grace of Jesus working its way into every stage of our lives, from our infancy to our deathbed. Together, we’ll learn how to recover our life in Christ through humble rituals, tangible practices and liturgies of grace and healing, so that our sufferings can be redeemed and our joy can be shared.
In this series, we will discover the grace of God in every nook and cranny of our lives. We will taste and see how the life of Jesus Christ – God in the flesh – brings life, flavor and meaning to our homes, jobs, sufferings, love lives, parties, parenting, and ordinary mornings and evenings. As we recover our soul and remember our calling, we will turn outward in the strength of Christ’s church to push back the darkness with sacramental art, justice and gospel witness.
Join us Sunday mornings at 10:00AM, online or in person.
A Home Blessing Liturgy helps us “remember and reimagine that our common places are, in fact, places of holy habitation—sacred space that is set apart, where we ought to expect to encounter God in every room, at the table, inside the closet, and behind every nook and cranny.”
On January 17th, Father Aaron preached about “Sacramental Households” and trained our church how to do a home blessing. Use liturgy (link below) to do a home blessing in your own home!
