“Hear the Word of the Lord: A Sermon from Jeremiah 7.1-15”
"To hear the word of the Lord requires recapturing the true identity and value of the temple of the Lord and the church of Christ. What gives identity and value to the church is first and foremost the living presence of Jesus Messiah and the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit: ‘Let me dwell with you in this place, this temple, this body,’ God says. And then, secondly, a people who are being transformed by God’s Messiah and God’s Spirit; a people who will no longer align themselves with systems of bondage and oppression; a people who love the Lord, their neighbors, and even their enemies above all allegiances to social status, gender, race, denomination, party, and nation; a people who hear the word of the Lord and offer their lives in worship! This is the temple of the Lord! This is the church of Jesus Messiah in the Spirit’s power!” (The following is an introduction to Chris Chesnutt’s Sunday’s sermon).
In Bible class we will be covering Jonah 3:10-4:11 and Acts 10:9-16, reprising the SPCoC 2017 Surf Camp theme: “Don’t say ‘no way’ to Yahweh!” So, come early 9:30 a.m. or before for coffee and donuts and the Gospel. Class begins promptly at 9:45 a.m.
Our services begin at 9:00 a.m. in Spanish and 10:45 a.m. in English. We have classes at 9:45 a.m. in English and 11:00 a.m. in Spanish. Oh, our midweek Bible study begins promptly every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. at the church building unless otherwise noted.
