Fall-Advent 2020 Sermon Series

Scripture Readings Bookmark

God's ultimate goal for His children and His world is total transformation; that we would be changed . . . altared.  Our transformation happens in many ways and in many places, but some of His most transformative work takes place as we encounter Him in personal and powerful ways AND in "Worship Settings."  But "Worship" is not easily defined or neatly packaged.  Where and when (and how) God shows up is less predictable.  We cannot control what God does, but we can be sure that He will accomplished all that He has purposed in our lives and His Kingdom.  He will ALTER us as we encounter Him at the ALTAR.

This week's message wraps up our sermon series, Altar-ed Living, where we take a look at Acts 2.  Luke has painted this amazing picture of a START UP church that goes mega and multi-site. However, Luke also refuses to hide how imperfect, pretentious and fickle the Church can be. Transformation comes in the midst of our imperfect communities as we commit to the scriptures, prayer, fellowship, mission, and generous support of one another . . . with SINCERITY and TOGETHERNESS.  Two words that are so important when it comes to our transformation. 

Stay tuned following the service for this week's Journey Through the Bible!
