This Summer’s sermon series, “When Love Comes to Town,” will conclude with a call to put love into action here in our community. We will focus on four key words as we intentionally move toward being “doers of God’s word—and not hearers only.”
Week 1: Pray (August 9)
We will begin by urging you to intentionally pray for God’s reveal a unique way for you to put love into action.
Week 2: Prepare (August 16)
We will encourage you to make preparations by gathering supplies or taking necessary steps so you will be ready to act next week.
Week 3: Shine (August 23)
This is action week. Let love come to town! Our suggestions would be more “high-touch, up-close” if we were not in a COVID-19 environment. But, do not let the environment restrict our creativity in being a representative of God’s love.
Week 4: Signs (August 30)
This final week we will look for signs of God’s love impacting the those with whom we have interacted, and within our own lives, too.
Flexible: As you schedule it.
Reach out to a member of the church family or your neighborhood to check on their well-being. Perhaps, prepare a meal or dessert to share; or call and set-up a “safe-distance” visit. Think about those with whom you worship or attend Sunday School, those who live alone, or someone in your neighborhood whom you have not seen out and about in a while. Reach out to the church office if you need a suggestion for who you might offer a loving, well-being check.
