Summer Sermon Series- Worship 10:00 AM

Old Testament 101-The Jesus Code.

Based on the Epic of Eden by Sandra Richter

 
 We’re going’ back to the lake’ to reclaim our story.

Between Genesis and Revelations sits an epic journey; a love story filled with evil mis-steps, lost inheritances and undeserved redemption.  Bring your curiosity and abandon everything you thought you knew about the scripture.

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 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 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 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.

Part 3-The Blood Covenant

Pinky swear vs Blood oath–a summer dare with a leap of faith into the waters below.  
There are promises and then there are oaths;
games between children versus treaties between
nations.One carries more weight, doesn’t it?
 
This Sunday, we look at the cost of freedom through a
covenant ‘cut with blood’, one based on traditions
older than dirt and more lasting than time.

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.

 Worship

Holy Communion offered the first Sunday of each month.

Can I take communion? 
This is the Lord’s table, not ours. Everyone  is welcome –no rules, no age limits, no membership requirements.  Just come.  
 
When can my children take communion?
Children are welcome at any age to share in Communion with their parents or guardians. Jesus set the rules for children to come. 
 
Allergies?
Rice wafers are available for those who wish to avoid bread and dairy products.
 

 Coming with small children?

God put the “wiggle” in your children and we celebrate that! Take advantage of the nursery or grab a rocking chair and table in the back.  

Kid’s Church is open  to 3 – 10 year old following Children’s Time in worship.
