sermon series begins feb. 14
We find our place in God’s story by Searching for it. HOW DO WE SEARCH….. Our sermon series will focus on some different ways in which individuals in scriptures searched for their connection to God. Hopefully we will identify some elements that we can use as different times to guide us or at least to reassure us that our search is headed somewhere
Feb. 14 “Facing the Dark Side”
Scripture: Luke 4:1-13
Jesus goes directly from a time of affirmation into what the bible calls the wilderness. As followers we must also follow him there. Other stories locate this time of reflection and angst in a cave …or the dark wood. In the movie Star Wars it’s called the “Dark Side.” What is your “dark side,” where you face what is tempting in your life?
Feb. 21 “Secretly Searching.”
Scripture: John 3
We think we are in control but we are we secretly searching?… Our place in God’s story can sneak up on us and transform us. Nicodemus’ search tells of the story of when we don't want anyone to know that we are thinking about being a servant.
Feb. 28 “Restart/ Reboot/ Revive”
Scripture: Matthew 11:2-19
“Restart/ Reboot/ Revive” John’s disciples have always been seekers, but they must take what the have learned from John and restart it with Jesus. Some of us must reboot our presumptions and perceptions of life. When we do this our faith can be revived.

Wednesday night Lenten soup supper/worship
In Exodus, the Hebrew people's search to find their place in God's story begins when Moses is sent back to face down Pharaoh. Wednesday nights during Lent, we will explore the search of the Israelites from the time Moses leads them out of Egypt through their wilderness wanderings.
Ash Wednesday, Feb. 10, marks the beginning of Lent. Each Wednesday, Feb. 10-March 16, we begin with a simple soup supper from 5:45 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday worship is from 6:45-7:15 p.m. Everyone is welcome.
