My new sermon series is called "Family Life". It will go for the month of May and culminate on June 5 when we celebrate Pentecost a week early and welcome new members, baptize some babies, and welcome our confirmation class into the church as members.
The series was pitched on Easter Sunday as a foot in the door with some of our C&E (Christmas and Easter) crowd. The idea is to do a short thematic series that will touch on issues affecting everyone. The Family Life series will cover relationships (May 1), marriage (May 8), divorce (Mothers Day May 15- I know, downer.), sexuality (May 22), and parenting (May 29). We are encouraging folks to invite friends who are not plugged into church to come and hear what the Bible says about these socially and culturally relevant topics.
