Every year we try to set a theme that gives our sermons a focus and directs our study of the Scriptures. From Sunday to Sunday our sermons will feed back into the theme, sometimes in obvious ways and sometimes more subtly, but always somehow a sermon will fit into the larger picture.
Our themes are broad in scope, with nothing too specific or limiting that would hinder our ability to preach the whole Word of God to our church family.
One thing we’re very conscious of is how a “sermon series” and “sermon themes” can quickly turn into a seemingly-endless stream of lessons that don’t actually end but instead “stop” after thirty minutes or so of preaching each week.
We don’t plan and design a single fifty-two part sermon that is presented in fifty-two thirty-minute chunks. We have fifty-two individual sermons, that cover a variety of Bible topics and present-day issues but which, ultimately, feed back into the big picture theme we’re pushing that year.
This year’s theme is LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and that means all year long we’re going to be examining the need for us to put others before self, to love everyone whether they are enemy or friend, coworker or cousin, brother in Christ or slave to sin. God loves all and so must we. What does that mean? What does that look like? How is that done? This year we’ll study and find out.
Our sermons have something for everyone, and we think you’ll grow closer to Jesus by opening your Bibles and studying with us every Sunday!
