Rooted: The Values That Nourish Our Faith

Join us for our Summertime teaching series Rooted: The Values That Nourish Our Faith. This series arises from the work of our Elemental Churches team, which spent has spent the past year seeking God's guidance to clarify our values, our vision, and our calling as a church for the next few years.

Join us for these messages to get a better grasp on where our church community is going and to listen to the Holy Spirit for how you might be called to play a part in the work that God is doing among us.

June 30   Introduction. We kick off the Rooted series with a special 10:00 AM Fifth Sunday worship service. Pastor Smith's message on Isaiah 61:1-9 will ground us in Isaiah's vision that God's people would become "oaks of righteousness".

July 7  Scripture. We will explore John 5:16-40 and learn more about how the grace of Christ is the central truth of the Bible.

July 14   Discipleship.  Jesus teaches the two great commandments as a summary of what it means to follow Him. We will look at Mark 12:28-34 and learn more about about loving God with our mind, will, and strengths.

July 21  Compassion.  Jesus tells the parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37 as a way of illustrating how to live the two great commandments. We'll explore this parable and its challenge for us to offer encouragement and compassion for those who are hurting.

July 28  Family.  The first great commandment's Old Testament origin is in Deuteronomy 6:1-9. We'll explore the commandment in context and discover how investing in family is a key component of our faith.

August 4  Outreach. When Jesus calls followers, He equips them and sends them on mission to invite others to learn His ways. In this last message of the series, we'll examine Matthew 9:35-10:8 to explore our calling to share Christ through what we say, how we act, and who we are as a community.
