Worship This Sunday

Sunday, February 1

Join us in worship on Sunday, February 1, as we continue in our sermon series, "What's It All About."  This week - "Your Life, Your Legacy " with Scripture readings from Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and Matthew 19:13-15.


So what indeed is your purpose while you’re on this planet?  That’s what we’ve been digging into in this sermon series.  There’s a reason we’re digging:  to not know our purpose leaves us aimless, empty, and exhausted.  But to discover — and enter into — our purpose is to find great joy, power, and reasons to get out of bed in the morning!


This week’s sermon is on discovering — and living into — your legacy.  Good news!   Your passion, your influence — your legacy — doesn’t have to leave this earth when you do…  God has set eternity in our hearts.  By that we know, in the quietness of our soul, that the bumper sticker “life is hard, and then you die”, is an atheistic fraud.  God has purposes for your life that can keep on having an influence long after you’re not here to push them along!   Don’t we all crave that?   But how can that happen?  How can we have a legacy that history will never forget?  Join us Sunday and find out!
