May - June 2012 Sermon Series


What does God expect of us? Is our faith just about going to church, studying the Bible and avoiding the most serious sins - or does God expect more? Have we embraced the whole gospel or a gospel with a hole in it?

Join us as we explore what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ in our 21st century world. Together we will ask God to expand our minds, break our hearts, and renew our spirits as we worship God in Spirit and Truth. The gospel isn't missing something . . . it's been there all along . . . we've just missed it or forgot it. Each week, we will highlight a mission with which we at First Church partner, giving us the opportunity to learn how to get involved. Look in the Celebrations Cafe to buy your own copy of The Hole in Our Gospel to read on your own or with a small group. Books are $5.00.

"People who knew me spoke well of me; my reputation went ahead of me.
I was known for helping people in trouble and standing up for those who
were down on their luck. The dying blessed me, and the bereaved were
cheered by my visits. All my dealings with people were good.
I was known for being fair to everyone I met. I was eyes to the blind and
feet to the lame, Father to the needy, and champion of abused aliens.
I grabbed street thieves by the scruff of the neck and made them give back what they'd stolen.

-- Job 29:11-17 -- The Message
