August 26, 2016: Pastor Wiggs' Word of the Week: PARTICIPATE
Many schools are back in session and the long, hot days of August are near their end. We had a tremendous variety of offerings for ministry during the summer, but now we turn our attention to a fantastic fall line-up of spiritual growth and ministry opportunities for all ages this fall. If you have not had time to check those out, I encourage you to look for a place that you can plug-in more intentionally to this community as a way to enrich your faith and life.
This Sunday morning we come to our final sermon in our series, Downtown for Good. We continue to follow Jesus as Luke unfolds the story of his life and ministry. This week we read a very short parable about yeast, a woman, and the kingdom of God. We will look at what we can learn from Jesus as we read from Luke 13:20-21. The sermon title will be, “Who Will Leaven the Loaf?”
You are a vital part of this body of Christ known as the Boston Avenue Church. Christian faith affirms that each one of us is given gifts to be used for the common good. Your commitment, your participation, and your gifts make us stronger as a church family. The beauty of the Christian family is that the more you offer yourself to the family, the more blessings you experience in your own life. Join us in this wonderful journey of faith!
