The Way of Gratefulness

10/14/2018 – 11/18/2018

If gratitude is so good, why is it so hard to do? This sermon series is based on the Diana Butler Bass’ latest book, Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks. In the prologue she writes, “This book is an invitation to become aware of gratitude in new ways, with the hope that if we see more clearly what is at stake, we might together nurture, encourage, and practice the sort of gratefulness that can change our hearts and communities.” Join us as we eagerly seek to experience the journey to a more grateful life.

extravagant generosity - the heart of giving

Extravagant Generosity: The Heart of Giving

9/16/2018 – 10/7/2018

Giving helps us to become what God wants us to be. Giving is not merely about the church’s and other organizations need for money but about the Christian’s need to grow in generosity. Generosity is a fruit of the spirit, a sign of our spiritual growth. God uses our giving to change the world for God’s purposes, and God uses our giving to reconfigure our interior lives and to change us.
