Walking By Faith

The Book of Hebrews, toward the end of the New Testament, seeks to make connections with the Old Testament and indicate a unified line of faith from the beginning to the end of the scriptures.  In Chapter 11, the author lists some of the great ancestors of our spiritual past and describes the faithfulness each  exhibited.  As the summer winds down and we gear up for another academic year, this will be our focus in worship.  Each week, for 5 weeks, we will look at one of these Heroes of our Faith.  In their own way, they trusted in God’s ability to lead us even when the path ahead isn’t entirely clear.  We will recount their storied pasts as well as look forward in our own lives to how we can Walk By Faith as they did.
