Paul tells the church at Philippi (and all of us): “God is at work in you.” That means you are worth working on. You are worth God’s time. God perceives that you are worth the investment. You are worth it.
What do you perceive is worth working on? What is worth your time? What is worth the investment, to you?
We put our time and our investment into activities and institutions we value. What do you value?
This Sunday, Rev. Tonja's sermon, "God is at Work in You", is based on Philippians 2:1-13. Participate beginning at 10:30AM on our Youtube Channel.
Ancient rabbis created a story (or midrash) about Nachshon, who led the Israelites across the Red Sea. Nachshon was the first to enter the waters, unsure of what to expect, or what the consequences of his daring action might be. Nachshon showed great leadership and courage.
Sometimes it is necessary to step out and take the lead without really knowing what the future holds. Sometimes it is necessary – as individuals and as a church – to demonstrate leadership and courage.
This Sunday, Rev. Tonja's sermon, "Leadership and Courage" is based on Exodus 14:10-31, The Message. Participate in worship on our YouTube channel beginning at 10:30AM. Sing along with the hymns and follow along with the virtual bulletin here.
Jesus said: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Paul said: “You can’t go wrong when you love others.” The Beatles said: “All you need is love.”
Why is love so important for Christians – so much more important than any of the other religious “laws” and commandments? Because God is love.
This Sunday, Rev. Tonja's sermon, "All You Need is Love" is based on Romans 13:7-14. Participate in worship on our YouTube channel beginning at 10:30AM. Sing along with the hymns and follow along with the virtual bulletin here.
