February 14th – 1st Sunday in Lent
Scripture Reading: Numbers 6:22-27, Mark 3:1-5, Mark 6:34-44
Sermon Title: “A Need Responsive Vision”
Synopsis: “A transformational vision for ministry serves the needs of people rather than serving the needs of the program.” (Stan Ott) Does our vision for ministry lead us to serve the needs of people? What hinders us from knowing the needs of those around us? What keeps us from choosing to use the gifts and resources God has given us to primarily serve the needs of others rather than ourselves?
February 21st – 2nd Sunday in Lent
Scripture Reading: Acts 1:8, Matthew 11:28-30, John 20:19-29
Sermon Title: “A Gathered-Scattered Attentive Vision”
Synopsis: “The vast majority of the energy of traditional congregations is expended facing inward on the life of the people of God as they gather together and in addressing their needs. However, the Christian faith is always a balance of the inward and the outward, the gathered and the scattered.” (Stan Ott) As a church we gather together to strengthen each other so that we can return to the world in mission. Is that how we are living out our lives together here at Cottonwood?
February 28th – 3rd Sunday in Lent
Scripture Reading: Psalm 29:1-2, 10-11, I John 1:1-4, I John 2:7-14
Sermon Title: “A 3-D Vision”
Synopsis: “In Christ, together, for the world.” Our purpose statement proclaims a three-way vision, it reaches toward God, it challenges self and congregation to grow, and it reaches out to the world. This is the 3-D vision to which we are called as followers of the Jesus Way. Does the living of your life and our life together reflect this 3-D vision?
