May Sermon Series

Good, Bad & Silent: Hard Scriptures for Women…and Men

Join us for our upcoming sermon series that will engage the Scriptures that challenge our contemporary ideals about women, men and family. 

May 4th – “Jesus’ Women” – Recently, news outlets dug out an old idea and made a new headline that pondered whether Jesus might have been married. Join us to explore the nature of Jesus’ relationship with the women who followed him. Did he fall in line with society? Or challenge it’s very essence?  – READ Luke 8:1-3

May 11th (Mother’s Day) – “Saved By Childbirth?” – How should we understand salvation when there are confusing Scriptures like this? Is salvation different for men and women? READ 1 Timothy 2:8-15

May 18th – “Be Silent!” – Worship must have been getting pretty rowdy in Corinth for Paul to set down all these rules. How do they apply to us today?READ 1 Corinthians 14:26-39

May 25th – “A Question of Heads.” – Who is in charge, here? Why does honor matter? And what is the deal with hair? READ 1 Corinthians 11:2-16
