It Only Takes a Spark…

Even the largest fires start small — even from a single spark. As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we look at how God’s work breaks through in a new reformation that must begin with a spark in me before it can spread to others.

October 15 — Reform Me (Ephesians 3:2-13)

The spark of God’s work begins in us. It is the tremendous gift of God’s grace that, by faith, forms a passion to live as God’s work.

October 22 — Reform Us (Ephesians 4:1-7)

Joining other believers in Christian community (e.g., small groups) allows the fire to grow. This is the growth of the passion begun in us to the compassion we live out with each other in community.

October 29 — Reform All (Ephesians 4:11-16)

The Holy Spirit works to disturb our satisfaction with the status quo. Our spirits cannot be content until we act on our Lord’s desire to draw all people to himself.

Sunday, November 5 is All Saints’ Sunday, the day each year when we remember and celebrate the lives of our loved ones who have joined the communion of saints.  As we celebrate together, we invite all congregations members who have lost a loved one to bring a small picture or memento of your loved one to place on the altar during worship.  

If you will be attending the 8:30 or 11:00 services, please bring these items to the church office the week before Sunday, November 5, or bring them by 8:15 AM on Sunday November 5 so that the pastors can place them on the altar.  If you will be attending the Connection, simply bring the item with you to worship.

ThanksLiving: Cultivating a Life of Thanks!

We are not lost or on our own in this life; we are beloved children of God. And if we really believe that, how do we live differently? How does gratitude for God’s grace prompt us to share grace with others? Join us in this season of thanksgiving as we learn to live lives of abundance, gratitude and joy.
