 NEW SERMON SERIES – HEARING GOD

Join us as we explore some of the many occasions when God has spoken.  From Old Testament to New Testament, to today; lives are directed & changed, and the Kingdom of God is coming near.  Learning from these stories of theophany, God speaking, so we too can respond to God’s Voice.  Sunday’s Jan. 7, 14, & 21.

January 7th Epiphany of the Lord “What Gifts Can We Offer?”  Matthew 2: 1-12

The wise men brought out of their bounty and out of a sure knowledge that they would encounter a Magnificent Revelation that deserved worship and gifts.  Learning to listen and follow – not only to the call forward but beyond, as we move past the “Holy Moment” that God has brought us to. The Gift of Listening to God.
