    Leading Like Jesus: Working It

    Our jobs and to-do lists sometimes seem to dictate and direct our lives. We can easily feel like our calendars are the masters and we are just the puppets. Maybe you wonder how your job could be doing anything for the ‘greater good’ of humanity – asking yourself ‘what’s the point?’. Before you throw in the towel on your various duties, take a deep breath and join us as we study the Bible. In our summer series called ‘Leading Like Jesus’, we examine God’s (surprising?) outlook on work, roles and faith.

    Leading Like Jesus: Father Figures
    Father’s Day is a mixed bag for our society. Some of us have fathers that we would like to celebrate, while others have fathers they would just as soon forget. Regardless of your personal relationship with your dad, the influence that they can have on their family and the world should not be taken lightly. As we continue our series of Leading like Jesus, we look at Jesus’ attitude toward fathers, their importance, and the special place that God has carved out for their influence.

    Leading Like Jesus: Follow the Leader
    When you think about leaders, who comes to mind? The current president of our country? A prime minister? Your boss? Many of us look to others as leaders, but in reality we should be looking in the mirror. When Jesus called the future leaders of his church, what did he see in the disciples? This ragtag group of misfits were some of the least likely to start a worldwide movement that is still going to this day. Jesus taught them to lead, and if he able to teach them, he can teach us as well. Join us this Sunday and throughout the summer as we strive for the goal of ‘Leading like Jesus’.

    At the Table with Jesus: Woe is Me
    The fear of judgment or negative opinion keeps many away from going to church. When you don’t feel like you live up to the standards of certain groups, you tend to avoid them, it’s only natural. This is no new phenomenon, but has been a staple of society since the beginning of time. So it is when some encounter Jesus, but you may be surprised by the people he takes objection with in our next dining event as we meet “Jesus at the Table” and consider who’s right and who’s wrong.

    At the Table With Jesus: Call of Levi
    Our society seems to be moving faster and faster every year. When we’re running from one activity to another, it is getting harder and harder to find time to ‘squeeze’ in a meal. Fast food establishments are popping up on every corner supplying stressed out people at least some measure of nutrition to keep on moving. Family mealtime, if and when it appears, is savored for its rarity. If we rewind 2,000 years, a different picture surrounds the dining experience – it was often an event with profound social implications – so what would you do in these situations? Join us over the next several weeks as we observe ‘Jesus at the Table’, looking at the mealtime episodes from the Gospel of Luke to see what we might learn from Christ’s actions and words.

    Series: Listen Up!
    Trying to figure out who knew what and when has been in the news cycle again lately. It’s often hard to tell who is telling the truth and whether or not it was something malicious or benign. Keeping track of life and relationships can be similar to the point where we just want to call a time out and take a break. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could find another person we could trust completely? This Sunday we look at the final church addressed in the book of Revelation and find out that there is one who is faithful and true – the question is whether or not we will Listen UP!

    Series: Listen Up!
    Our nation has been reeling lately with political unrest. Regardless of which ‘side’ you find yourself, the undercurrents of our social climate seems to be one of sustained volatility and instability. Finding solid ground is not a new problem, however. As we look at the sixth church addressed in the book of Revelation, we see a family of God making a noble stand on an unshakable foundation. Join us as we ‘Listen UP!’ once more to the words of God for the church in Philadelphia and how we too, can rest on the steady and never-changing One, Jesus Christ.
