Worship Series: "Geared Up For Life"
(Click on an earlier service's graphic to view that service's Resource page.)
You might think that a seven-week series in the middle of summer is a recipe for disaster. Even without the remnants of a pandemic and everyone still scrambling to come up with some sort of hybrid virtual and in-person worship experience, a series this long in a time when, at least in the US, many folks are thinking about vacation and church attendance is difficult to sustain. Yet here we are!
This Week's Theme: "Speaking Truth"
Our text this week places a high calling on the people of God. Two of them in fact. The text ends with the urging to be imitators of God. It is difficult to imagine a higher calling than that. But this is why we spend most of our lives in the process of knowing God.
