October 25-26, 2014 - New Horizons: Focused by Worship
Nehemiah 8:8-12 and John 8:31-36
Worship is at the center of our Christian experience. Martin Luther, the Reformer, knew that. On any given weekend, we could be elsewhere. Yet, we choose to come to worship. At some level we all come to worship to focus on the Lord. We are then fueled for our life. Worship both satisfies our soul’s longings and gives a yearning for more—of Jesus Christ. That is what we will experience again and again as we seek the New Horizon for 2015 in worship.
November 1-2, 2014 - What We Will Become
1 John 3: 1-3 and Matthew 5:1-12
What we are is not what we will become. On this weekend, when we celebrate All Saints Day, we remember the saints who have gone before us. We cling to the promise of what they will become. We look forward to what we will become in Christ Jesus. And now, we honor the past and look to the future as we act today for His Kingdom and the saints yet to come.
