All-church Study and Sermon Series
An all-church study offers our congregation the chance to share a common read as a means of sparking meaningful conversations and connections--with God and with one another. The book Reckless Love: Jesus's Call to Love Our Neighbor by United Methodist Pastor Tom Berlin will be our common read.
Love God more deeply by learning to love your neighbor better
Maybe we have it a little backward. As Christians, we strive to follow Jesus’ teaching to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength which, in turn, we hope will help us better love our family, friends, and leaders…our neighbors. But what if we turned that around and put the emphasis on loving our family, friends, leaders, and, yes, our neighbors? Might we then find that becoming a better neighbor leads us into the deep and loving relationship we’re striving to have with God? In Reckless Love, you will consider how to follow the Greatest Commandment and learn how your love for the people around you can completely renew your faith and give you a new experience of loving God.
Throughout September and into October, Pastors Chris and Kelly will use ideas from each chapter of the book in their sermons. If you did not sign-up for a group, you can still participate in weekly sermon talk-backs on Monday evenings at 7:00 on Facebook Live with your thoughts and questions regarding the sermons. If you would like to follow along in Reckless Love, there are free books available on a table outside the church office. Videos that go with the sermon series can be accessed through the church's subscription to Amplify Media.
