We are beginning a new sermon series this week called utopia and our hope is that God would break our hearts to the point where we are, as a united church, willing to live in eager anticipation of being used to answer this prayer: Lord, give us the people in our city that no one else wants.

Sermons From series

The Church: God’s Public Relations Representative in the City

Speaker:

In order for churches to represent and reflect God properly in urban contexts, they must know two things: their identity and their city.

Justice, Mercy, and Humility

Speaker:

When navigating the tension of relating to people as unto the Lord, we battle with swinging towards condoning others and their sin to condemning others. Living in a diverse city, we know this is a tension we manage—not solve—realizing living in either extreme diminishes God’s glory and deteriorates our relationship with others. To get a framework for navigating this tension we turn to Micah 6.

Recapturing the Lost Art of Hospitality

Speaker:

As we understand God’s love for us, we must realize that we are to be a tangible expression of that love. It’s that love that will change our city and the world.

My Call To Love Us

Speaker:

Brokenness can be restored into beauty when the love of God is the glue that holds all the pieces together. We will show love to the body of Christ when we: first learn the definition of love and secondly discover God’s love, so we can demonstrate His love.

Becoming In Order To Be

Speaker:

As we begin a new series, Pastor Dhati kicks off the season challenging us to become the church in order to be more welcoming to the city.
