THE UNKNOWN series – focus on individuals, people from the Bible who are either unknown, or mixed up in our minds.  They are people whose names may not be recorded or who may be overshadowed and relegated to background figures.  But they play an important role in God’s master plan and still made a difference for God.  We want to look at these people and their lives for inspiration on how we can live for God, even when we feel like unknown background characters in the story.

Somewhere in Advent Time – we travel back in time to see the old Christmas stories with our new eyes today through this new four-week sermon season.

This series is going to focus on individuals, people from the Bible who are either unknown, or mixed up in our minds. They are people whose names may not be recorded or who may be overshadowed and relegated to background figures, but who play an important role anyway and still made a difference for God. We want to look at these people and their lives for inspiration on how we can live for God, even when we feel like unknown background characters in the story.

 

The Seven Deadly Sins are not a concept from the Bible, but from Christian tradition. They are named “deadly” because they directly lead to more sin, or so is the claim. Whether or not this is true, or whether there should be more sins on the list is not the issue. The seven deadly sins are a useful tool to talk about the sin in our lives, and the opposite virtue to which God calls and empowers us. With this seven-week sermon series, one for each of the seven deadly sins, to examine what the Bible has to say about them, about how they show up in our lives, and of how God has equipped us to fight against them. Special emphasis should be placed on the opposing virtue, such that the overall tone of the series will be of being called TO something, of hope and power, rather than a general tone of condemnation.

 

This is Us is our “back to basics” series, as we look at the below values statement of Elim Chapel. Each week, the values we are sharing will link back to the idea that we are all here to be part of what is going on, not simply as audience members.

  • We Love God
  • We Love People and We Value Relationships
  • We Are Compassionate and We Share The Good News Of Jesus Christ
  • We Bring Our Best and We Are All Learners

 

The Fruit of the Spirit, listed in Galatians 5, is one of the most well-known passages of scripture. As followers of Christ, these Fruit provide important reference points for us to gauge our development as we are conformed to the image of the Son.

Galatians 5:22-23. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
