Preaching & Bible Study Series

Gospel of Luke Preaching Series

We are having a Sunday preaching series from October 6th through All Saints Sunday, November 3rd. The theme of the preaching series follows that of our Parish Retreat on the theme of SURPRISE THE WORLD.

The gospel, as St. Paul describes it, is that by the Holy Spirit we are “in Christ;” united to him and sent out to participate in his mission to reconcile the world to God. When we “clothe ourselves with Christ,” we are more and more transformed into his image and likeness and set free to surprise the world in the same ways that Jesus himself did. Join us as we explore the many ways that Jesus surprised the world and how we are challenged to follow him in this as we meditate together on Luke’s telling of the story of Jesus this fall.

October 6  Luke 7:36 – 50  Jesus anointed by a sinful woman
