This Week's Sermon
Sunday, May 2
Community Alive! How to Make Life-Giving Connections #4

1 Corinthians 3:1-4, 16-23
Pastor Doug

True community depends on realistic expectations for life together. Unrealistic high ideals for others cause disappointment and conflict. We must not be naive about both the wonder and mystery of human nature. We are a mix of both sinful self-centeredness and awe-inspiring generosity, of both confidence and insecurity, and of both sensitivity and insensitivity. This message presents three basic principles we need to grasp in order to develop realistic, biblical expectations.
Sermon Reflection Questions available on the Small Groups page of the website Friday evening.
