Our Latest Sermon Series…

Most of us spend our lives trying to climb the ladder. That’s what the world encourages us to do. “Aim higher.” “Shoot for the stars.” “The sky is the limit!” Jesus, on the other hand, has a different perspective. He suggests we “put out into deep water.” Which is easier said than done. “You have to be last to be first.” “You have to lose to gain.” “You have to die to live.” As we enter into a year of Visioning within the life of our congregation, we will be called to go deeper with God, one another, and the world we serve. Let’s dive in together during a four-week sermon series by Rev. Dr. Nathan Brown which we are calling “Going Deeper.”

The theme for the 2019 Special Offering for Week of Compassion is “More than we can imagine!” That theme, based on Ephesians 3:20, reminds us that we are not alone in our imagining a better world for all God’s children, for it is God’s imagination that fuels and empowers ours!
Week of Compassion is the relief, refugee and development mission fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada. Through your gifts to the Week of Compassion Special Offering and throughout the year, God is doing More than we can imagine!

If you RSVP’d, please plan to join us after church this Sunday in Dunlap Hall for the next Up Close and Personal lunch! The subject will be “From Boys Town USA to the Arctic Circle” by feature Paul Kapphahn.

Paul grew up with his parents and siblings as part of the greater Boys Town family in Omaha where his father was the band and choir director under the famed Father Flanagan. Fast forward, years later Paul became an ordained Catholic priest and served as a chaplain to US military personnel working along the Russian/US border (in Alaska) during the height of the cold war. Paul’s talk will cover his journey, the men who influenced his decision to become a priest, and the challenges of serving in one of the coldest, darkest places in our country.

Please sign up in the lobby so we know how many will be joining us for lunch that day. If you have questions, please see Nancy McDaniel, or call the Church Office for more information.

All men are welcome to meet the last Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm for fellowship and discussion. The group will meet at Hudson Grille in Sandy Springs on Roswell Road on the 28th of February. For more information, please contact John Mills at jmills@taylorenglish.com.
