Sermon Series: Joining Jesus
July 20 @ 8:00 am - September 6 @ 5:00 pm
When you hear the word ‘missionary’ who do you think of? Likely it is some specially trained individual or family sent to some far off, remote part of the world to bring the Word of God to a people who have never heard of Jesus or the gospel. Missionaries are people we support but is likely a label we don’t apply to ourselves. What if that way of thinking were all wrong? Would it surprise you to know that the United States is the 3rd largest mission field in the world? That means the mission field isn’t ‘over there’ in fact, it’s ‘right here!’ Jesus’ mission has never changed; to rescue, redeem and restore all things to himself and he’s inviting us to join him. Jesus is out and he’s on the loose in the places right where you live, we just need to open our eyes, open our hearts and look for the places he’s already at work. This week we kick off a new series based on Pastor Greg Finke’s book “Joining Jesus on His Mission: How to Be and Everyday Missionary.” Pastor Finke is an LCMS pastor and founder of the organization Dwelling 114. His passion is to equip churches to be missionaries in our radically shifting culture. Drawn from the Scriptures we will watch what Jesus does and learn to apply those lesson to our daily lives as we embrace the life of being a missionary right here in our own neighborhoods and community. Be praying now that the Holy Spirit will stir up our collective passions to join Jesus on his mission and bring the message of hope and life to the world.
