Our summer worship series is entitled, Who God is, Who We are: Making and Keeping Commitments. In a world of broken promises, how can we as God’s people find the strength and the courage even to make promises, let alone keep them? This summer, join us whenever you are able for sermons drawn from the book of Deuteronomy that root us in God’s commitment to us, free us to make and keep commitments in our own lives, and enable us as a community of faith to bear witness to the faithfulness of God in the world around us.
June 7 “The God who Makes and Keeps Commitments” Deuteronomy 4:5-14, 25,27;29-40
June 14 “Ten Commandments, Ten Commitments” Deuteronomy 5:1-21
June 21 “The Most Important Commitment” Deuteronomy 6:1-9; 20-25
June 28 “Chosen and Beloved in Covenant Loyalty” Deuteronomy 7: 6-11
July 5 “An Eye for An Eye?” Matthew 5 Bruce Schelgel, Guest Preacher
July 12 “The Obligations of Being Blessed” Deuteronomy 8:1-20
July 19 “What Does the Lord Require of Us?” Deuteronomy 10:12-22
July 26 “Raising our Children in God’s Covenant” Deuteronomy 11:1-21; 26-28
Aug. 2 “Your People, My People” Ruth 1:1-19 Kristi Button
Aug. 9 “Tithing for Justice” Deuteronomy 14:22-15:18
The special worship theme and sermon title we have planned for Sunday, July 26 is “Raising our Children in God’s Covenant.”
Parents of children and teenagers will want to make a special commitment to join us. This is the promise we have made to God and our children in their baptism. We will be sharing some very practical wisdom about how we can live out these baptismal promises. You will be glad you made worship your first priority.
See you this weekend!
