Abstract: Jesus cared about prioritizing. In light of the in- breaking kingdom, which is already here, we are forced to act. We are forced to determine what we must do to prepare for this new reality. What do we keep and what do we divest? Once we know that material goods will only collect rust or dust, and once we know that the only thing that counts is treasure in heaven, surely we must find a new way to live.

Chancel Choir – Adult choir
This year we are looking at making a few minor changes to our “performance” with adding songs with the congregation, preludes and postludes (all good things). You don’t have to read music or be a perfect singer – just want to have fun and be a part of an amazing group of people.
Sermon: “The Courage to Be Ourselves” Theme: We grow in emotional courage as we learn to be shaped and molded by God’s Holy Spirit and Christ’s love. Purpose: The congregation will explore the difference between holding fast to their own relationship with God and accepting others, as they are. Scriptures: Ephesians 4:22-32 do not let the sun go down on your anger. be kind to one another.
John 14:18-27 I will not leave you orphaned, those who keep my commandments will show their love.
