SEPTEMBER SERMON SERIES
The Greatest of These is Love
“… faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”  These beautiful words of 1 Corinthians have long been recited at weddings as wide-eyed couples prepare for storybook lives in holy matrimony. However, Paul’s letter was written to a people who were fighting to keep their community from falling apart. The believers in Corinth held grievances against one another; struggled with sin in a culture fueled by sex; marriages were tested, and idol worship was the religion of choice. Join us as we engage Paul’s 1 st letter to the Corinthians and discover how these ancient words instruct us today.

Come explore with us the history of Israel's monarchy that began in glory with the hey day of King David but ended in the destruction of Jerusalem and the Exile of the Jews. Listen to the warnings and criticism of the latter prophets who lambasted Israel for her failings but nonetheless proclaimed hope in the promise of the Messiah.

Elissa has been involved in art her entire life and claims she lives in an art gallery which she is prepared to share with us. We plan to gather at her house at 7pm, have a Mexican style buffet dinner, look at her art and hear about her ongoing work, now that she is devoting her time to painting. Following this, we will focus on our journey forward in our Bible Study together.
 
 This evening will also include beginning our bible study on “Experiencing God’s Presence”. In this first study in the  Jesus Calling Bible Study Series,  you will be encouraged to lay down your cares and just spend time each day with your heavenly Father. As you follow the Lord’s instruction to “be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10), you will encounter His peace, be filled with His strength, gain a new perspective on your situation, and experience the full life that only He can provide .
 
Study Books are $9 each and copies will be available for sale at church on upcoming Sundays (or in the church office during the week). Again, very casual, come as you can, arrive late, leave early. Wear sweatpants or pajamas. Even if you cannot attend all weeks, we encourage you to join us at Elissa’s house for the opportunity to view her beautiful artwork.
