The secular age has left us with growing boredom, loneliness and chaos. But as we recover our life in God, and shift from the secular to the sacramental life, we will find boredom give way to meaning, loneliness give way to family and chaos give way to peace. “Rooted in God: the Fruitfulness of the Sacramental Life” is a sermon series from the Gospel of John that will teach us how to participate in the life of Christ together. Along the way, this series will explore the historic Christian practices – weekly communion, baptism, liturgical prayer, and the rhythms of the church calendar and daily office – as well as the church’s historic mission of healing and evangelism.
The book of James is sometimes referred to as the Proverbs of the New Testament. Vivid metaphors and imagery answer the question of what it looks like to live as a disciple of Jesus Christ, day in and day out. Virtues like endurance, a tamed tongue, humility and impartiality are what the Holy Spirit cultivates in the lives that are sealed as Christ’s own forever. Join us in an in-depth study of how we can begin to bear the mark of a Christ-follower with our whole person.
This Eastertide we are studying the power of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. The apostle Paul writes about this power in his letter to the Roman church. In these six weeks after Easter we will be studying Paul’s teaching and seeking to understand the new reality of Life in the Spirit that is promised to all who trust in Jesus for salvation.
Our theme this Holy Week is ‘Responding to the Call of Jesus’. In these seven days we remember Jesus’ unflinching walk towards the cross where he would give himself over to be killed. His death was the ransom that serves to justify all those who would call on his name for salvation. We remember his death, we celebrate his resurrection, and we eagerly await his return.
