2018 Summer Sermon Series
During the summer, we’re following the lead of our VBS theme (“Journey Off The Map”) and taking our own trip: “Journeys with Paul.” We’ll be introduced to several places Paul visited on his missionary journeys, and examine key texts from letters he wrote to those communities of faith that he established. Join us as we visit Galatia, Philippi, Thessalonica, Athens, Ephesus, and Corinth.
We’ll look forward to two special Sundays during the summer as well: Senior Adult Recognition Sunday, July 8, and VBS Sunday, July 22.
Once we are introduced to him, we spend the rest of our lives becoming a disciple of Jesus. This year’s sermon series is comprised of several steps to facilitate the discipleship process. Each month or season, a different step is introduced. Usually one Sunday of the month will focus on a key Christian belief to THINK about, one on an ACTion to do, and one on a way to BE. Interspersed periodically are also opportunities to EXPERIENCE and SERVE God in meaningful ways. Our topics are selected from the “Believe” series by Randy Frazee. The congregation is invited to purchase an age-appropriate Believe resource from the Wisdom Well bookstore, and follow along with their own devotions on the topic introduced.
2015-2016 Sermon Series: The Bible In 100 Words

Though God’s Word is divided into an Old and New Testament, with many different kinds of writings not always arranged chronologically, it is still a unified story of God’s relationship with His people. It also is a “salvation history,” where we can learn not only God’s intentions for how we should live, but the wonderful way He rescues us from our sinfulness with the gift of His Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. We can see throughout the Bible that this was God’s plan from the beginning, with the people of the Old Testament demonstrating so clearly our need for God’s grace and redemption.
We’ve chosen 50 two-word phrases to try to convey in a memorable way the story of God’s Word, and each Sunday we’ll look at the Scripture passage that tells that part of the story. To cover the Bible during the appropriate times of the church year, we’re beginning the series in August. Look for a bookmark with all 100 words, and plan to join us each Sunday as we explore God’s word together!
2014-2015 Sermon Series: Passport To The Kingdom
Throughout the year, we highlighted the physical and spiritual places that were introduced in the sermon text each week. Each Sunday, we included a handout that provided in depth information about the place, its significance, and often how we can apply the lessons learned there to our own lives.
