Sermon:           Serve the God of Truth and Justice

Theme:            We recognize that God is the source of our understanding and the one who has established what is true and what is just.

Purpose:          We will seek to raise our behavior to a standard that reflects God’s truth and justice.

Scriptures:       Psalm 99          God is the God of justice and equity, and those who follow as God instructs have wisdom and strength.

                        John 3:31-36   Jesus speaking to Nicodemus explains that God is the one who created all and is the source of eternal life.

Questions:

What do we believe God expects of the way people treat one another? How should we respond to the injustice and hatred in the world? In what ways do we need to align our hearts with God’s law in order to be people who can speak with integrity? What do we need to do to be part of God’s message of peace and justice? What does it mean to speak from God’s love and instruction rather than from our own reactivity and defensiveness?

Sermon:           “Heaping Burning Coals”

Theme:            We overcome the problems and challenges of the Coronavirus and troubles of today through practicing God’s instructions of compassion as we build endurance through faith.

Purpose:          We will learn to be strong as we do what is good and care for one another.

Scriptures:       Hebrews 10:23-35       Let us hold fast to our confession without wavering, because Jesus is faithful. Provoke one another to do good works.

                        Romans 12:9-21  Bless those who persecute you, do not repay evil for evil, heap burning coals upon the head of your enemy.

Questions: What does it mean to “heap burning coals” on the head of your enemy? What do we need to do in order that we can more than survive this time of the Coronavirus? What is it mean to more than endure, we can show God’s compassion? How do we demonstrate the knowledge of God and love of God without being rude or pushy? What is Jesus teaching us to do through this time when we are having to give up so much?

Sermon:           “Becoming God’s Holy House Together”

Theme:            We are moving into a relationship with God in which God’s love and presence is made known through our fellowship with God and with one another.

Purpose:          We will envision growing into a fellowship that reflects the presence of God and love of Christ.

Scriptures:       1 Peter 2:1-10 Long for the pure spiritual milk to grow in salvation, we are being built into a spiritual house, a holy temple; you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation.

                        John 14:1-14   Do not let your hearts be troubled, we see the Father in the son. Believe in Jesus and in the Father.

Questions:

What is most important about the nature of our fellowship and our relationship with God in this new era? What actually matters in how we live our faith and share God’s love? What do we need to do so that people see Christ’s love and teaching in our lives and fellowship? What do we need to do in order to envision relationships that truly reflect God’s love and grace? How do we make it a priority to practice the love of God? How do we focus on making our identity as “God’s chosen people” our foundation for sharing compassion and hope with the world?
