Part 2- Forgiveness

First, Jesus asks us to love our neighbor and now, to freely forgive. 
We are thrown into the battle game of light vs darkness: asked to both love and forgive while expecting team Jesus to win the battle for Eden. Are you on the field of the Kingdom or watching from the bleachers? Are you Jesus ready?     It’s Game Day.

Part 1-Love Your Neighbor

Hurricanes, wild fires, earthquakes and nuclear threats?! 
!t’s happening again, those social media messages quoting scripture warning the END IS NEAR!
In the middle of the end, Jesus demands that we must Love our Neighbor. Natural disasters are great equalizers. How in the middle of the end, can we love? More importantly–are you Jesus ready?

One God, Many Gifts

 Do you ever feel like your best effort isn’t enough?
Sometimes we struggle doing various jobs, but maybe God created us for more than struggling through day to day life. Hear how different gifts can glorify the kingdom. WithGod everyone can find success!  What are your gifts?   Allison Schwarz, UMC Intern

Part 8- the Anointed One

A country was in crisis.
Evil pushed and polarized the people who demanded a change- a new leader for the people. Who would rise up to bring peace?

Part 6-People of Shem

Chaos ruled creation, so God ‘uncreated’ it with a epoch event.

Safely stowed inside Noah’s ark was the future of God’s people—the people of Shem; all linked together by a flood, a mountain top, and an future heir who encountered a very different kind of God.

Wait–back up–who’s Shem?!

See you this Sunday at 10:00 am.

Part 7-The Sun, Moon and Stars

God’s people grew as numerous as the ‘stars’ but lose their light in Egypt. 
God picks Moses to rescue those ‘stars’ and lead them out of chaos and into…chaos? In the midst of their desolation, a new Light shines on them-the Law-a reflection of God light, like the moon reflects the sun, giving order and love as it was in Eden. Moses doesn’t it know it yet, but his story links the Moon, the Stars–and the Son.

Part 4-Blueprint of Eden

It was the perfect plan, perfect location, and perfect life, God’s  blueprint of creation….
Eden was paradise, crafted by the Master for humanity to rule.There was just one caution- ‘a break it, you buy it kind of warning.’
Yet, humans wanted more than paradise; so in one single act of human desire, Eden broke and all of creation broke with it. 
Sunday July   16, 2017

Part 5 –Redemption of Eden

Eden broke and all of creation broke with it. 
Humanity dared to overstep God, ushering in chaos. Yet, Eden’s DNA was planted in human hearts. Could there ever be another Eden? This Sunday, we embrace the ‘rest of the story’, which is really our story–the Redemption of Eden

Part 2-God Persisted 

What is God stirring you to do?
Our ancestors took impossible journeys and risked failure to find success. Nudged on by an inner voice, a stirring in their heart, and a desire for something more, they pressed on.
Even when they wanted to give up, God persisted.

Part 3-The Blood Covenant

Pinky swear vs Blood oath
There are promises and then there are oaths; games between children versus treaties between nations.
One is causal between friends and the other carries the weight of the family inheritance, even the fate of the world.

alive for all to see and hear. 
What does it mean to
live in the Spirit?  More importantly-how do we
live in the Spirit today?
