Once upon a time, people knew their neighbors. They talked to them, had cook-outs with them, and went to church with them. In our time of unprecedented mobility and increasing isolationism, it's hard to make lasting connections with those who live right around us. We have hundreds of "friends" through online social networking, but we often don't even know the full name of the person who lives right next door.
This sermon series, based on the book The Art of Neighboring asks the question: What is the most loving thing I can do for the people who live on my street or in my apartment building? Through compelling true stories of lives impacted, the authors show readers how to create genuine friendships with the people who live in closest proximity to them. Our church will continue the discussion from the Sunday message into small groups meeting at various times during the week.
In the Advent season we are reminded that Emmanuel means "God with Us" now and in the promise of hope for everlasting life.
As God's people seeking God's covenant promise we have no greater responsibility than to diligently pass the faith from one generation to the next.
Occasionally, we break from our usual sermon series to highlight a mission or celebrate a special occasion. These are the special services which don't fit within a series.
We demonstrate our allegiance to the Lord Jesus in practical, everyday ways: in how we think, talk, walk, and work.
