The Way of Christ: Walking in Love

A New Sermon Series

Beginning September 23rd

 What does it mean in our daily lives to be a Christian? How do we grow in our Christian walk?  Jesus teaches us that the goal of Christian life is the practice of love:

“One of the scribes came near and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, he asked him, ‘Which commandment is the first of all?’ Jesus answered, “The first is, ‘Hear, O Israel:  the Lord our God, the Lord is One; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’  The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’  There is no other commandment greater than these.’” (Mark 12:28-31).

Join us beginning on Sept. 23rd for a new sermon series:  “The Way of Christ: Walking in Love.”  We will explore:

  • “The Call: ‘Belong, Behave, Believe’” – Sept. 23
  • ”Am I Good Enough? – Growing in the Assurance of God’s Love” – Sept. 30
  • ”Learning How To Love: Christ Our Mentor”” – Oct. 7
  • “How to Kill Love Fast: The Sin of Judgmentalism” – Oct. 14
  • “Humility: The Master Virtue” – Oct. 21
  • “Hospitality: The Foundational Virtue” – Oct. 28
  • Come join us as we practice walking in the Way of Christ!
