Missions Sunday 2016

Sermon Title: Mission Opportunities for a Post-Christian America
Scripture Reading: Genesis 12:1-9; Colossians 1:11-14; Philippians 1:9-11

From the beginning God’s people were sent out on mission from nations where Christianity was not the norm. We should be encouraged that this did not prevent them from being effective as missionaries, and in some ways gave them an enthusiasm and humility that was beneficial to their calling. We can learn from these accounts, as well as the experiences of our own missionaries, transferrable principles that can help us be on mission in our own post-Christian context.

In Mission Opportunities for a Post-Christian America, Jonathan Lloyd (Director of BIC US World Missions) shares how the church is called to live our faith out of love and humility.

Aliens & Exiles (2 of 9)

Sermon Series: Aliens & Exiles
Sermon Title: The Road to Exile (2 of 9)
Scripture Reading: Isaiah 39:1-8; 40:3-5; Hebrews 12:7-11

There were both human and divine factors which led to ancient Israel experiencing exile. What were those factors? What did the prophets have to say before and after the people of God traveled the road to exile? What can we learn from the past? And what can we expect for the future of the church in a post-Christian America? What lay ahead on this road to exile? It’s likely to be filled with tragedy and triumph.

In The Road to Exile (2 of 9), Pastor David will invite us to observe the painful past of God's people so that we might enter into exile with hope for the future.
