This Sunday in Worship: ‘Stewarding the Church’
October 20, 2013: A sermon on Isaiah 55:1-5, and the reception of new members.
Sermon: “Whoever loves their dreams of the Christian community more than the community itself becomes its destroyer,” said Dietrich Bonhoeffer. There is a tension between what we long for the church to be, and what it actually is. But the heart of the Gospel is found with accepting those whom Christ has called—including new ones. We’ll consider how to love an imperfect institution, and what discipline, hope, and love it takes to do so.
Music: The Cherub Choir and the Sanctuary Choir will sing at 11:00a.
Education: Be here at 9:30a for education for children and adults. In the chapel, Sherrill Vore continues our exploration of the book of Genesis.
