June 06: THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT Series, #1 of 12—Works of the Flesh” (Romans 1:24-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Galatians 5:16-21; Colossians 3:5-10)
Today’s message is more of a meditation than a full-blown sermon, perfect for a Communion Sunday as we kick off a new series with a contrasting introduction: the negative traits of the Works of the Flesh instead of the positive qualities collectively called the Fruit of the Spirit. After explaining what the various Works of the Flesh are, we’ll take a bit of time to do some inner discernment to determine those things for which each of us need to confess and repent—followed by the Lord’s Supper, of course!
June 13: “The Greatest Love Story” (1 Corinthians 13; Matthew 22:34-40; John 3:16) Since Pastor Tim finishes up his vacation, Our Youth Director, Jon Simpson will preach. Let’s hold him up in prayer as he shares a message about the three loves in the bible: the love God has for us, the love we have for God, and the love we have for each other; the primary focus will be on what these look like through the lens of 1 Corinthians 13, and what it looks like to live out a live of love.
June 20: FATHER’S DAY—“F-A-T-H-E-R” (Proverbs 17:21-28; Ephesians 6:1-4) Last month for Mother’s Day, seven traits of a godly mother were identified. In a similar vein, today’s message focuses on six qualities Christ-following dads are to manifest, with each characteristic beginning with each subsequent letter in the word F-A-T-H-E-R. C’mon out, dads!
June 27: THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT Series, #2 of 12—“Introduction to the Fruit of the Spirit” (Matthew 7:15-20; John 15:1-5; Galatians 5:22-26) After beginning this month with the Works of the Flesh, today we jump into the true theme of this long series, the Fruit of the Spirit! As an introduction to the series, we’ll look briefly at discerning good/real fruit from bad/fake fruit, differences between the Gifts of the Spirit and the Fruit of the Spirit, the nature of the fruit of the Spirit, and end by memorizing the nine qualities/grapes on the cluster of the Fruit of the Spirit.
