Summer Worship Series

What is the Kingdom of Heaven? What is it like? How can we describe it? Jesus used parables to invite people into an experience of the Kingdom of Heaven. But he also showed people what the Kingdom of Heaven is like with everything he did. Beginning July 3 and running through August we will be exploring Matthew’s vision of the Kingdom of Heaven revealed in the person of Jesus.

July 3 & 6 The Kingdom of God Revealed
A person of faith believes that there is more to this world than meets the eye. Jesus reveals the “hidden” kingdom of God and invites us to participate in that kingdom today and forever.

July 10 & 13 The Spreading Word
In this familiar parable of the sower, the seed goes all over the place, on good soil and bad. The focus is on the grace and reckless generosity of the One who pours out the word of the kingdom on all people. It’s not about us and what kind of soil we are; it’s about God, who sent us Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh.

July 17 & 20 The Weedy, Wheat-filled Kingdom
Jesus describes a kingdom where the master has a different attitude towards the presence of weeds than his workers. What does it take for us to think more like the master and less like the workers who want everything perfect right now?

Sunday, July 24 – Guest Speaker: Joy Waughtal
Joy is returning from a year of volunteer mission work in South Africa as part of the Young Adults in Global Mission (YAGM) program of the ELCA. Come and hear Joy speak about her experiences at both the 8:15 and 10:15 worship services as well as a special family education forum at 9:15

July 31 & August 3 You Feed Them
Jesus called his disciples to feed the multitude. Though they may have doubted their ability, when they did what he commanded they discovered the power that Jesus had given them. We too are called and empowered for ministry. Ours is not to doubt but to do.
