“Living in Covenant with God”, An 11am Sanctuary Service Series

Lenten Lectionary Sermon Series 2018

For the Season of Lent, Pastor Dennis will present a  5  Week Sermon Series on, “Living in Covenant with God”

Sundays at 11am in the Sanctuary

This five-week sermon series will explore the character of God that calls us into covenant for renewal and salvation. We begin our covenant journey with Noah and God’s promise not to allow human sinfulness to destroy the earth. We then explore the covenant God makes with Abram and the blessing that shall come from his family, that blesses all the families of the earth. This leads us next the covenant God makes with Moses, giving a people laws to help them order their lives in community with each other. ext is the covenant God makes with David to establish his throne so that Israel can fulfill their long, projected destiny to be a blessing to all the earth’s families. The fulfillment of this blessing is seen by Jeremiah as a time in which God will put his laws – not onto stone and paper – but into the minds and written upon the hearts, of all who follow God’s commandments.

“The Cleansing,” A LifeSong Sermon Series

The Cleansing

A LifeSong Sermon Series

February 18th — March 11th,  9:15am

As we journey through the season of Lent, we are compelled to examine ourselves under the revealing light of Jesus. What are the evils that lie beneath keeping us from the life God has purposed for us?

In this four-week series we will allow the light of Christ to both reveal and restore; a much needed cleansing!

We will use the story of Naaman from 2Kings to:

Week 1: Acknowledge our sin and our need to be cleansed
Week 2: Actively move towards God for cleansing
Week 3: Navigate the world’s pushback on our pursuit of cleansing
Week 4: Maintain the cleansing God has done
