“Joy” (10:30 AM Blended)

“Love” (10:30 AM Blended)

Text: Song of Songs 8:6-7a, 1 John 4:7-8 Too often we have seen our faith rejected by the world when Christians act without love. Our call as Christians is to reflect the God who not only shows us love but who is love. The Word became flesh in the person of Jesus Christ and the Word becomes flesh in tremendous ways when we, God’s people, live out our faith in everyday life.

“Peace” (10:30 AM Blended)

Text: Isaiah 2:1-5 Christ’s coming as the Prince of Peace teaches us about God’s heart and God’s desire for us to live in peace. How are we called in this present age to “beat our swords into ploughshares” as we make a statement for peace through humble service to our neighbors?
