Sunday Sermon Series
What did Jesus mean when He said, “Whoever loses hisWhat did Jesus mean when He said, “Whoever loses hislife for My sake will find it?” How often do we stop to considerthe commitment Christ expects? He’s not talkingabout writing a check or checking a box, but living a lifethat is completely focused on giving to others that which He has so graciously given to us.In the coming weeks, we plan to address some of these questions and ideas as we begina new series entitled Living Generously. This sermon series is different than others wehave done. It includes a series of films that tells the story of the Donovan family as theyseek to understand what it means to live the words of Jesus. Each week we will see aglimpse of their journey as they take risks, experience suffering and joy, and find themselvestransformed by the call of Jesus. You won’t want to miss a single Sunday!
