This Weekend in Worship
Preaching: Pastor Steve Knudson
Sermon: "Building with Living Stones — Mission"
God has built the church for a purpose, to exist for the sake of others. God establishes the church for the sake of God’s mission, to reach out to others in the name of God. The church does not have a mission, rather God has the mission and God’s mission creates the church. God not only sends us out, but Paul reminds us that the very nature of our fellowship, our experience of being in community for the sake of God’s love happens because this is who God is. Christian fellowship is made possible through the triune harmony of Christ's grace, God's love, the Spirit's partnership.
Scriptures: 2 Corinthians 13:11-13; Matthew 28:16-20 NRSV
