Fall Stewardship Sermon Series: Moving Forward by Faith

This four-week series coincides with our stewardship campaign, “Moving Forward by Faith.” The central image of the series is that faithful people and churches are moving, not stagnating. The church and its people are in the race and must engage. The theme verse of the sermon series is Hebrews 12:1-2, “Let us throw off everything that hinders…and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus… (NIV).”

Where are we going? How are we going to get there? What is our identity as we move forward? Our prayer is that our congregation does not stand still; instead, we passionately move forward with our vision, supported and committed by prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. Let us dream and envision together as we move forward by faith as God’s church.

October 15 – “Clearing Hurdles”

Scripture: Philippians 3:12-16

There is that classic line that says that the Christian journey is not a sprint, but a marathon. There is ample truth to that. In addition, however, the Christian race is one of clearing hurdles. This week, we will speak about some of those hurdles, helping us to know that it is normal when Christians have struggles. In truth, the challenges (hurdles) have a way of making us press on to become better racers and servants of the One at the finish line.
