People with a Purpose sermon series

We’ve spent the last 6 weeks thinking about our mission as a congregation. In our WWW. sermon series (Who we are, What we do, Why we do it), we spent one Sunday each on the six words of our mission motto (“Share Christ.  Change Lives. Deliver Hope.). As we move toward Pentecost (May 23), we want to build on “Mission” and think about “Purpose.” For us to fulfill our mission as the  people of God, what kind of people will we need in the church; what kind of people will we need to become, individually? 


This is the question we will seek to answer in our new series called “People with a Purpose.” In order for us to fulfill our mission, we need to bring out the Prophet, Poet, Priest, Penguin, and Panda in each of us (individually) and among us (as a congregation). 


April 18                       Prophet: Listening for the voice of God               I Samuel 3:1-11

April 25                       Poet: Imagining God’s desired World                   I Corinthians 13:1-2

May 2                          Priest: Faith in Action                                            Matthew 21:28-32

May 9                          Penguin: Committed, Daring, and Communal   Mark 6:7-13, Corinthians 15:50-58

May 16                        Panda: Leaving a lasting Impact                          Matthew 7:24-27  

May 23                        Pentecost: Making it all possible                         Acts 2:1-11
