Summer Sermon Series - Starting Sunday, July 14th
This summer, on Sunday, July 14th, we will begin a sermon series on Christian spirituality using Richard Foster’s classic work- Celebration of Discipline. Throughout the series we will look at a variety spiritual practices rooted in Christian history that are central to the Christian faith. These include things like prayer, fasting, solitude, and simplicity. This will be a very practical series designed to equip you with tools and skills to deepen your faith and experience of God.
I recognize that the summer is a very busy time, and individuals and families are often away on vacation, so I wanted to create a summer series where you could follow along even when you are away. Just read the chapter of the week, and you’ll be able to stay in the loop. For those of you looking to go a little deeper, you can read the chapter of the week ahead of the sermon so you have a richer understanding of the material.
Along with the sermons, I will provide an opportunity for Q&A in fellowship hall after worship based on each week’s sermon/reading. The goal of this is to create an opportunity to dive a little deeper into the material and discuss thoughts and questions that you have.
If you are interested, I will be purchasing copies of the book, Celebration of Discipline. There will be a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board, and I will be purchasing copies at the end of June. The cost is $15.00 per book.
If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Simeon.
