August Sermon Series – “Bad Girls of the Bible”
During the month of August we’ll explore some of the biblical stories of women who have traditionally been portrayed as “vamps and tramps”. But was Delilah really a double-crossing femme fatale? Was Jezebel a jezebel? Was the woman at the well a vixen or a victim? How did Mary Magdalene get such a bad reputation? Join us as we take a closer look at the “Bad Girls of the Bible”.
August 6: “A Bad Hair Day” (Judges 16:4-21)
We’ll put our preconceived notions of Delilah aside as we take a closer look at the story of her betrayal of Sampson.
August 13: “A Bad Girl or BAD Girl?” (1 Kings 21:1-16)
Just who was Jezebel and how did she earn such a bad reputation? We’ll revisit the biblical stories about this notorious queen of Israel.
August 20: “Looking Below the Surface” (John 4:4-19, 27-30, 39-41)
A pair of monologues this day will help us hear the familiar story of the Samaritan woman at the well in a new way.
August 27: “Apostle to the Apostles” (Luke 8:1-3)
Who exactly was Mary Magdelene and how much of what we think we know is actually in the Bible?
This series of videos invites us into a better, newer place - one where change is happening and it comes through engagement with the Liberator of the world. These thinkers and theologians, authors and storytellers will stir our imagination so we might capture a glimpse of a dream that is yet to come and at the same time being fulfilled before our very eyes. They will share what has happened in their own lives and how we might join with them in this journey. May we, together, step into a better place.
Join us Sunday mornings at 8:30 as we view and discuss "A New Place to Be".
Dogspell: The Gospel According to Dogs
A Sermon Series for the “Dog Days” of Summer
Have you ever thought of dogs as a living, breathing metaphor for God? What is it about their unconditional love, loyalty, and companionship that could shed light on our understanding of God? (Maybe it’s no coincidence that “dog” is “God” spelled backwards!) Reflecting on the dog-like qualities of God is not nearly as strange – or as sacrilegious – as it sounds. Join us during the month of July as we explore what dogs can teach us about the character of God.
July 9 – “Dog Is Love”
July 16 – “Dog With Us”
July 23 – “Search & Rescue Dog”
July 30 – “The Loyalty of Dog”
