Invitations of Jesus

Invitations of Jesus

January 22 - February 19, 2023

The Christian faith is a journey in which we get to know Jesus, growing in our understanding and belief of who He is and what He has done. It requires opening ourselves up more and more to Him, allowing Him to speak into our lives as He calls us to be a part of His kingdom ministry here on earth. Over these five weeks, we will look at a handful of the invitations of Jesus, each one inviting us into a deeper relationship with Him from curiosity to disciple who calls others to Him as well.

The invitation to follow Christ begins first by being introduced to Him and invited to come and see who He is and what He is about. It is noteworthy that John’s first recorded words of Jesus are “What do you want?” - literally, “What can I do for you?” Jesus invites us to come with our curiosity and questions and discover where He is and what He is all about. In this first account of Jesus connecting with His disciples, we see His open invitation and hospitable nature as He makes Himself available. - John 1:35-42

Jesus is much more than just a great teacher: He is the One sent by God to restore humanity back into relationship with Him. The invitation to come and see where Jesus is will always be followed by the invitation to believe in Him so that we might be with Him. - John 14:1-14; John 3:16

Baptism Sunday

January 15, 2023

The church has two sacraments that speak of the power of the death and resurrection of Jesus in the life of the believer - baptism and communion. This Sunday we will celebrate both as several of our faith community take the step of obedience in being baptized. Baptism symbolizes our identification with Christ in His death and resurrection while our weekly participation in communion invites us to consider our ongoing need for Christ in our lives. - 1 Peter 3:18-22; Colossians 2:6-15; Matthew 28:19-20; Galatians 3:26-28; Matthew 3:13-17

Singing New Songs in a Foreign Land

January 8, 2023

We are emerging from the pandemic, with our losses and our gains. So much has changed in our lives and in the world. Today we will give space to the losses, with hope, and reflect on how we can courageously go forward into a different world and sing new songs for God's glory. - Psalm 137:1-6

Special Note: There will be material to compliment the teaching, with an opportunity to join in person or on-line to work through it.

PART ONE and PART TWO

Embracing Advent

Embracing Advent

November 27 - December 25, 2022

As we enter the season of Advent, we come to the familiar story of the birth of Jesus and with it, the themes of hope, joy, peace, and love. The Christmas story is filled with people facing the choice to embrace one option over another. This Christmas season, we will explore the call that when we take hold of Jesus, it will mean letting go of something else. Embracing the Advent of the Christ asks something of us, but it gives us so much more in return.
