About worship on Sundays in October: Throughout the Sundays in October, based on Ephesians 3:17, we will have a sermon series entitled “Rooted in Love.” Roots bring both stability and nourishment. In this world of constant change and uncertainty, we are dependent upon our roots.
The Bible in general, and Jesus in particular, use many agrarian images to describe God’s love and Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is like scattered seed that does, or does not take root (Matthew). Faith is like a tree planted beside a stream (Psalms & Jeremiah).
How rooted are you? In what are you rooted? Are your roots deep enough, wide enough, healthy enough to withstand the challenges and difficulties of life?
Rooted in God’s love, we abundantly love and serve our neighbor and the world God loves. (from Pastor David's newsletter article)
