8/5/18 – 8/26/18
For four weeks we are going through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians; in particular, we are focusing on the concrete actions that Paul suggests as ways to build a foundation that is the love of God.
Live. . .in Love
August 12, 2018
Paul implores the Ephesians to be imitators of God and to live in love, remembering how Christ loved us and gave himself for us. In this inspiring message, Pastor Evan challenges us to live in love and casts a vision for what the church could be like if we were known more for what we actually do rather than just what we avoid.
Give Thanks. . .in Love
August 19, 2018
How can we live a life of love, saying only that which builds up instead of tears down? The answer is from our lesson in Ephesians today, in which Paul encourages us to be grateful. Gratitude doesn’t just change our perspective; it actually changes us.
