This Week in Worship
This week in worship we continue our Faith over Fear Series with a message entitled "A Different Kind of Hero" based on Hebrews 11:29 - 12:2. In this passage, the writer of Hebrews lifts up what Dr. Thomas Long calls a roll call of faith as he thumbs through the pages of Scripture citing examples of faithful living. Take a look at this passage, do you recognize these names? Some such as David and Samuel are instantly recognizable, others are not even named at all. My question is, "Would I make the list?" How about you? Is the reason some are unnamed so we can locate ourselves in this roll call? I look forward to continuing this conversation as we gather for worship at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 a.m. this Sunday.

Table Talk and Life Groups Resume!
Mark your calendars for September 11th when we resume our Table Talk series for the Fall. Dinner will begin at 6:00 p.m. and Life Groups will meet from 7:00-8:00 p.m. Meals will cost $5 per person or $20 max per family. We hope you will make this a priority, as this is essential to our communal life here at Denver. Use this time together to connect with other people who worship alongside you each Sunday. If you are interested in starting a Life Group, please contact Pastor Todd to learn more about the design and process of our Life Group ministry.
