The Week's Sermon

Good Trouble

Imagine being:
• Wanted.
• Chased after.
• Hounded.
• Arrested.
• Out on bail.
• On the run.
• Welcomed.
• Chased after again.
• Hounded again.
• On the run again.

Whom does this describe?
• Criminals?
• Asylum-seekers?
• John Wesley in the 1760’s?
• John Lewis in the 1960’s?
• Other trouble-makers?

The answer might surprise you. Or perhaps not. Find out as our extensive examination of the Acts of the Apostles continues this week with chapter 17.

Have you ever been in trouble? How did you get out of that trouble? Who helped you? Is it possible — despite what our elders may have taught us — that our goal as followers of Jesus is not to stay out of trouble? Could it be that we, like Paul and so many others before us, need to get into some good trouble for the sake of the gospel?

That’s what Pastor Dave will explore this Sunday, July 15th, in his sermon, “Good Trouble?” Be there to join in the conversation.

Summer worship gatherings are Sundays at 10:00 a.m. All are welcome!

Last Week's Sermon

"Fixing Hearts, Not Just Houses"

On June 23rd, 17 youth and adults left behind the comfort of their homes, their families, their friends, and their routines to spend the week sleeping on a floor, with almost no control over when they eat, shower, work, and rest. And that is easily the least impressive part of our week.

God's Holy Spirit is at work in and through the people of Baton Rouge. We simply had the privilege of being a small piece of what is already happening there. We got to meet, talk with, and help some extraordinary people.

How did we see God at work?
Who did we meet and why were we so moved by their stories?
What is so special about Baton Rouge?

In order to hear our reflections on these questions and our other experiences from our mission trip, you need to be in worship this Sunday, July 8th when the youth and adults proclaim their message, “Fixing Hearts, Not Just Houses."

Worship gatherings this summer are Sunday mornings at 10:00 am. All are welcome!

Responses:

"Today, the youth reflected on their mission trip to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  We heard a history of the city, all about the work they did, and how this trip was meaningful to each of them.  while the work was mainly construction, they didn't let that stop them from forming connections with the people they served.  They truly did fix hearts (including their own), not just houses.  i am so proud of each of these young adults for trying something new, and for their faithfulness to serve others." - Kayleigh

"It is so inspiring to hear about what our youth and volunteer adults did [on the] mission trip this summer.  'Serving others;' making a difference in the world. God bless." - Anonymous
