Worship Update

During the months of July and August, we met in Fellowship Hall. On this coming Sunday, September 3, our worship service will be held in the sanctuary. Our service will include the celebration of the Lord’s Supper.

Sermon preview: What do you want? This is the question that James K.A. Smith poses at the beginning of his book, You Are What You Love. I think this question is pertinent to Jesus’ difficult teaching in Matthew 16:21-28. Jesus speaks about his own vocation, which will involve suffering and even death. Then he speaks about what it means to be his disciple. What do you want? If you want life, you have it through Jesus. But be aware that we are followers of a Messiah who paid a steep price to provide us with true life. So we have to ask ourselves, Is it really a good idea to be affiliated with Jesus? Are we ready to follow him?
