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 29 – “Finishing Strong” (Commitment Sunday)

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 9:24-27

The sermon will be based on the 1 Corinthians passage as Paul speaks of seeking excellence, of not wanting to live aimlessly, and making his body (his life) his slave so that he won’t be disqualified. Is that not what most of us want? We want to be excellent, we want to matter, and we want to finish the faith in a strong way. We will dedicate our commitment cards at the end of the service.
