“A Resurrection Community is Born”
Scripture Reading: Acts 1:1-14Luke 24
This Sunday we will begin an 8-week sermon series reflecting upon how the resurrection of Jesus Christ has transformed Christian communities from the earliest days of the church in Acts up through the present day. Easter is a season for rejoicing in the spiritual realities we experience by new life in Christ.

Christ is risen; he is risen, indeed!

Kyle’s sermon, “Sin and Grace” will be based on Ephesians 2:1-20.
You may have heard of Christians or churches who claim to “take sin seriously”, and you may have heard of Christians who say they belong to a “grace-filled church”. Is it possible to take both sin and grace seriously? Can a healthy awareness and understanding of one, lead into an even healthier awareness and understanding of the other? We will apply Paul’s words to the Ephesian church (2:1-10) to the body at Lafayette.

The “10 Words” are so much more than the basic moral code of the Bible, they are a revelation of the character of God and a summary of what love is all about.

Sunday’s sermon is “It Is Good For Us To Be Here”: Revisited
Scripture Reading: Mark 9:2-9

About a year ago, we considered Peter’s mysterious response to Jesus after Jesus was transfigured before him on the mountaintop. How did you interpret his words then, and do you interpret them any differently now? Peter’s response to Jesus’ transfiguration will be a launching pad for us as we consider the mountain-and-valley nature of the Christian journey.– Kyle Johnson

Sunday’s sermon is “God Changed His Mind” based on Jonah 3:1-10.

Jonah as a whole and our text in particular leads us to grapple with some difficult questions. How do we respond when God calls us to do something that offends our sensibilities? What is our reaction when God’s forgiveness is more generous than our own? Are there individuals we do not wish to experience God’s love? Are there groups of people we have written off?

For best results, read the entire book of Jonah. If you don’t do that, please at least read the text linked above.

Bring your Bible to the Zoom gathering so that you can follow along as we work through this passage.
