Week of June 23, 2017

Keep the Faith

Last week I started a summer sermon series, “12 Words of Hope for the World.”  People are deeply concerned about what is going to happen next in our nation and in the world.  So many parts of the world are in turmoil.  There’s bad news, fake news, partisan news.  The Church actually has some GOOD NEWS.  Why would we want to keep this to ourselves?  Why not share these words of hope with the world?  We can!

Join us this Sunday for the word “Faith.”  We have this word.  Faith is not wishful thinking.  It’s not blindly accepting something ridiculous.  It’s not manipulating God into doing something.  So what is it?  You’ll have to be here Sunday to find out!  Invite someone to join you.  See you Sunday!
