Imitating God: Absurd Generosity

Absurd Generosity Imagine the world around you without God. Having a hard time doing this? That’s because it’s impossible. In this introduction to the series, we’ll recognize the absurd generosity that God shows to us, which sets the groundwork for why we give to others. We are called to be generous because our Father in Heaven spares nothing for our good. God is the first and most generous giver. Scripture: Malachi 3:6-12 Sermon Text: Exodus 34:6-7

Sibling Rivalry

It is heartwarming to see siblings hug each other, hold hands, and interact in friendly ways. Unfortunately, this is not the status quo in many families. Sibling rivalry results in wrestling matches, hurtful words, and damaged relationships. Forgiveness doesn’t always come as easy as an apology, especially for adult siblings. But God calls us to forgive others as He forgives us, and this includes our siblings. Sermon Text: Genesis 50

The Imperfect Family

The Bible is full of people who are a part of imperfect families, from Moses to Jacob to Jesus. With imperfect families can come pain and feelings of rejection. Although you may have been rejected, remember this: you are accepted by your new family. And you are always adopted and accepted by God. Scriptures: Exodus 2:1-10; John 4:1-26 Sermon Text: Genesis 21-1-6

The Godliness of Singleness

Singleness is a gift Some of the most famous heroes of the Bible were single. John the Baptist, Paul, and Martha were all unmarried, and God used them for great things. Churches tend to emphasize married couples and children, but singles play a vital role in their extended families and their church families. Contrary to popular belief, singleness is a gift. Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 7:25-40
