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
