Sermon Series

SERMON SERIES: Jesus: The Prophet

A homiletical response to the Social Issues Task Force report.

Why is Jesus a prophet? When Jesus walked the earth, the Bible consisted only of the Hebrew Bible, known to us as the Old Testament. This was the Bible that Jesus read, studied, and preached from. This sermon series will explore how the Bible influenced Jesus as a prophet, why he responded to social issues, and how God calls us to follow in his footsteps.

POST-SERMON DISCUSSION TO FOLLOW in the Parlor following Coffee Hour.

Christian Appalachian Project: Kentucky Mission 2022

Thank you to the Christian Appalachian Project and our team of adult and youth volunteers who completed another successful mission trip to Eastern Kentucky.  This year, we worked on rebuilding a roof and putting in new flooring to make homes safer and dryer for the residents. It was a wonderful week of hard work and heavy lifting. Every day was filled with joy, gratitude, team-bonding, and faith affirmation.

Thank you to our team members: Dave Berry, The Rev. Heather Brannon, Lucy Edwards, Andrew Gart, Olivia Gart, Emily Olson, Laura Olson, Alex Perez, Kathy Stine, Barbara Westlake, and our fearless leader, Debbie Wright.
