Sermon Series

 


BE RICH

SERMON SERIES

OCTOBER 8 - OCTOBER 29

9AM & 11AM 

 

Be Rich. Be Generous.  Starting Oct. 8, Pastor Larry will preach a sermon series with the theme of “Be Rich,” based on 1 Timothy 6:17-19 – “Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. By doing this, they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life” (NLT).

The truth is that most western Christians are already among the richest 1 percent of the world’s population, and because Jesus is the hope of the world and the church is here to share his message, the church should be the most compassionate, generous group of people the world has ever seen. Our church gives us opportunities to give, serve, and love others, and to make a substantial difference in our community and around the world.
