This Weekend in Worship
Preaching: Pastor Steve Knudson
Sermon: "God’s Mission of Serving"
God's mission of serving is informed by the love and life of Jesus. Jesus provides the motivation for love and serving, as well as the shape of a sacrificial love that seeks the benefit of the others. Moreover, disciples experience carry on the mission of Jesus as they stay connected to Jesus as the resurrected Lord. Jesus continues to be present to the world by enriching the lives of his disciples, and showing forth in a fruitfulness in their lives. On this day, when we explore how we are called to serve the Church of Christ, we remember that the risen Christ is with us, motivates our heart, and brings fruitfulness to our efforts.
