Scripture Reading: I Corinthians 3:1-3, Hebrews 5:11-14, Hebrews 6:1-9,
Sermon Title: “3-D Discipleship”
Synopsis: Do we have a desire to grow in our relationship with God, with the community of faith, and in our generosity to others? These are the three primary elements of discipleship. Without a focus on these three aspects of discipleship we have “passion without purpose, vigor without vision, motivations without mission, oomph without objectives” (Stan Ott). In other words we have an addiction to busyness, rather than a desire to grow in discipleship. Cottonwood let us give ourselves to the journey of discipleship!
July 10th – 8th Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture Reading: Psalm 119:17-24, Psalm 42, Psalm 84
Sermon Title: “Developing a Burning Heart”
Synopsis: When you think about, what does your heart truly long for? Does your heart long for God, to be in relationship with God? How do we nurture this strongest longing, that we often and so easily ignore or push to the side?

Scripture Reading: Amos 8:1-12, Psalm 52, Colossians 1:15-28, Luke 10:38-42
July 24th – 10th Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture Reading: Acts 4:32-37, Acts 5:1-11, 2 Corinthians 9:1-15
Sermon Title: “Generosity and Hilaros”
Synopsis: What is the nature of your inner spirit when it comes to giving? What is going on inside of you when you consider giving money away? As followers of Jesus we want to develop a spirit of generosity within us, so how do we do that? Generosity is not simply natural for most of us. Generosity must be nurtured and tried. Will we be a group of people with a desire to grow in our generosity?
July 31st – 11th Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture Reading: Proverbs 3:5-10, Malachi 3:6-12, 2 Corinthians 8:1-7
Sermon Title: “Stewardship and First Fruits”
Synopsis: We regularly use words like stewardship, tithe, offering, alms, first fruits when we consider the giving of our money, but what do these words mean and what is their context for our lives today? Each of these words is an important concept for us as followers of Jesus. May we develop a greater understanding of their meaning and how they connect to our lives!
