"Strengthening Your Core" Sermon Series

Sermon resources

Sundays, September 5–October 17 | Focused on John 13–17

The Apostle Paul once told his mentee, Timothy, that physical fitness has some benefits. But, spiritual fitness matters way more. Here are Paul’s exact words: “Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.” In Jesus’ last 24 hours with His followers before His death, He prepared them for what was coming. He taught them how to flourish using seven key principles and associated disciplines. Want to hear what Jesus taught about how to Strengthen Your Spiritual Core?
Bonus Resources: During this seven week series, all adult Sunday School class leaders will be provided a sermon preview and discussion questions. Each week’s preview will be distributed via email by the Thursday BEFORE the relevant sermon. Using it, you and members of your class can discuss the sermon topic to get ready for the sermon. In addition, a sermon outline will be provided in the hard copy “Worship Guide” that is made available at the Sanctuary entrances. For those of you who like to take notes, these outlines will help. Grab one as you come to the service.

Upcoming Preaching Schedule:

"Journey" Sermon Series

Sundays, November 14, 21, 28, December 5, January 9, 16, 23, and 30

Read the Book of Numbers and it’s a bit depressing. Israel makes a lot of bad decisions and doesn’t seem to ever learn from their mistakes. But the Apostle Paul actually recommends we read Numbers. Why? Here’s one of his recommendations: Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come (1 Corinthians 10:11). Paul is explaining that the Book of Numbers was actually written to benefit us, to help us learn from Israel’s bad decisions so we can make good ones! We so need to get it right, especially in this season of our life together as a church. So beginning November 14, Pastor Fleming will launch our next major sermon series called “Journey.” Come ready to wince at Israel’s mistakes and learn how we can do better?
