Sermon Topic: Community
Been to the movies lately? Or streamed one? A really good one? Ones of those stories that tug at your heartstrings? One of those stories that bring tears to your eyes? One of those stories that stirs your soul? Have you ever wondered why it impacts us that way? Why can we watch that kind of story over and over again? Get the answer this Sunday as we look at chapters 5 and 6 of Ezra. What? Ezra? Really? You have got to be kidding, right? Nope, that’s what we will discover.
As we go deeper into the Art of Holiness, we want to consider our influences. Last week we discussed the unholy trinity of the world, the flesh, and the devil. This week we will look at how God’s character, real Christian community, and the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit can grow us in dynamic ways. In many ways, these are the three key influencers that mold us more deeply into the love and holiness of God. So join us as we come to know who God is and experience His grace through His people and His Holy Spirit.
Mosaic's community spent last weekend (March 3-5) together at Hickory Knob State Park. The retreat offered us all much needed rest and a time of sweet communion. This is what community is all about. It's about being together, seeking God together, growing together, and simply having fun! Revival is born and bred in deep relationships centered around the love of God and his mission in the world. So check out this message, and consider how you can bring revival home.
This week, we are led in worship by our Epic Students. They have been hard at work preparing, and are excited to share their gifts with you. Taylor Williams, our student pastor, will bring us a special message through Matthew 25, and fresh vision and call for us to lean into intergenerational ministry. We are called to be unstuck, unafraid, and unleashed to pour into each other's lives and go after all God has for the whole body of believers.
Come with an expectant heart and be ready for a wonderful time of worship together
Carolyn Moore and Bob Garrett (Alleluia Community) discuss what it means as a missional community to pray for our city, and how the work of prayer is a transforming agent.
This week, our message is from Romans 12:17-21, where Paul gives such great wisdom on what it means to live in "sweet communion." Paul teaches us how to "be" with each other, which is a great thing to (re)learn after a long season of disconnection. Ultimately, Paul wants us to remember that the world is not the problem. The world is the prize!Don't
Our new message series begins, and it's all about what it means to follow Jesus. This week, we'll hear the charge from Jesus himself. And you'll get to see what our ministry leaders have been working on all summer. We will introduce a discipleship tool for every age -- a card we hope will become so useful to your devotional practice and small group life that it becomes our culture.
Sometimes the best stuff takes the least words. An "I love you" or "I'm sorry" can be far more powerful and life-giving than a whole page about why. That's why we're looking at these little books in the New Testament. Because even though they keep it short, they manage to say a lot. In just 335 words, Paul's letter to Philemon may well contain the most potent picture of both the pure gospel and its practical application. And it also manages to capture the beauty of partnership, or what it really means to belong to each other. We can't wait to share this word with you.
In this message Carolyn Moore breaks down the 10 Commandments and reveals how as believers we are called to live out God's intentions behind these time-tested laws.
Let's talk about renewing community relationships and getting a plan of action for spiritual formation. In a race, community and discipleship are the "lead leg" -- the one that puts us into the race. So, let's get ready to run the race together this fall.
