Sheepology

"Sheep are essentially helpless, lacking in wilderness savvy because of a complete lack of self awareness.  That," says Doug Greenwold of the Ins of Biblical Context, "is a pretty good definition of the 'Human Condition.''  Do you see yourself as a sheep?  Do we see Jesus as our Shepherd?  This Sunday we being a 3-part sermon series on Psalm 23; it's a lesson in 'sheepology.'  Sunday, Sept 16, 10:30 a.m. Our service include the sacrament of the Lord's Supper and recognition of our leaders and volunteers as we begin a new program year.

Our September Outdoor Service

Join us this Sunday, September 9, for our outdoor service and picnic. Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and enjoy a morning of worship on the church lawn.  And then, PLEASE! stay for the bbq.  In case of rain (which is a distinct possibility 😕) we'll move everything indoors.  10 a.m.

This might hurt

If it doesn't hurt, is it really a sacrifice?  Probably not.  That's why the phrase "sacrifice of praise" seems a little strange to us.  But that's what is demanded of us in Hebrews 13:15 - that we bring a "sacrifice of praise."  It will take some work (appropriate for Labour Day!) and it just might hurt.  Sunday, September 2, 2018, 10 a.m.

What non-Christians really think about Christians, pt 6


"Harriett works in my department. She is one of those Christians who seems to have a mask on. I would respect her more if she didn’t put on such an act. I know better.”  That's a quote from a non-Christian who thinks that some Christians try to act like they have no problems.  Jesus tells us to "be careful" that we don't become hypocrites (Matt 6:1-18). But maybe there's more going in with "Harriett" than meets the eye.  Join us as we consider this 6th statement on what non-Christians really think about Christians. Sunday, August 5, 10 a.m.
