Dear Friends:

Our fall sermon series, Words to Live By, will explore those passages of scripture that capture the core of our faith – and that our pastors are passionate about! We will discover together how the Bible is not just full of words to consider – but words that are life-changing. As the Rev. Tim Keller observes, “The gospel is good news, not good advice.” Scripture is a map for life, and together we will study that map through powerful passages from both the Old and New Testaments. Together, we hope to live out that great commandment from Deuteronomy 6:5-9:

You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength.  And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

May we write these words on our hearts.
