“Being the Body”
Part of being a Christian is being called into community with others. It is part of how we spiritually grow and help others to do so, and part of our witness to a world as we share God’s love. As we come back physically together as a church, our summer series will look at why our call to community is foundational, how we’re called to it and how God might want to shape us in in our communities to reflect his love and glory. We will draw from the book, Called to Community, a collection of 52 writings about how we might live a shared life in Christ more fully.
Unity with the Rev. Dr. Russell J. Levenson, Jr. – Sunday, June 6
We know how to “say our prayers,” but do we know how to hear from God? Wrestle with God? Abide in God? This series will dig deeper into five aspects of prayer and offer practical advice on how to go deeper in communion with God by His Spirit.

“What Are You Hoping For?”
What are you waiting for? What are you anticipating that will ‘fix’ whatever feels broken right now? 2020 has, in many ways, been a test of patience and hope. Advent is also a season of waiting: we await the arrival of our long-hoped for Messiah. This series will reflect on three images of Jesus as our Messiah: He is our Divine Rescuer, Divine King and Divine Husband. Each of these depictions of our Lord offers us the real hope we have that doesn’t just ‘fix’ things, but can transform our lives—as well as our expectations for tomorrow.

“The Ten Commandments as Jesus Taught Them”
What do Christians do? Have you ever realized that the Ten Commandments are important for us as people of the New Testament? But how do they impact discipleship? Jesus spent a lot of time instructing his disciples and a lot of this was based on these famous commands God gave Moses. This series will look at how the Ten Commandments as fulfilled and expanded through Jesus teaching and so give us a clear vision for how Jesus calls us to live our lives. Links to a video and study guide will be emailed each week on Sunday morning.
