First Congregational Church Of Wyandotte
98 Superior Blvd. at First St. Wyandotte, Michigan 48192
|06/24/2018||First Reading: 1 Samuel 17:32-49
Epistle: 2 Corinthians 6:1-13
Gospel: Mark 4:35-41
|"In the Boat Together"||There are a multitude of stories, both in scripture and in the history of the church universal, of people facing the impossible and having God pull them through. Courage in faith doesn’t mean we are afraid. It means we don’t allow our fear to keep us from following God’s call. When have you walked out in faith? When have you needed God’s assurance before you walked out in faith?|
|Old Testament: Lamentations 3:22-33
Epistle: 2 Corinthians 8:7-15
Gospel: Mark 5:21-43
|"The Power of Healing"||Jesus’ healing power was so great that a woman was healed just by touching him. There are people in our lives whose presence can bring peace and comfort without them saying a word. What healing is needed in your life? Who are the people in your life who bring you “healing” just by them being with you?|
|07/08/2018||Old Testament: Ezekiel 2:1-5
Epistle: 2 Corinthians 12:2-10
Gospel: Mark 6:1-13
|"Who Does This Guy Think He Is?"||We often get a first impression of people that doesn’t really capture their personality. Yet, even when they show themselves to be a different person, we hold onto that first impression as though it were a life/death piece of wisdom. Who has surprised you by who they became? Who needs you to allow them to fully be who they are becoming? (Parents, I’m looking at you!)|
|07/15/2018||Old Testament: Amos 7:7-15
Epistle: Ephesians 1:3-14
Gospel: Mark 6:14-29
|"Choose Your Words Carefully"||We can make promises quickly without thinking about a) who we are making them to or b) the full consequences of what we are promising. We can say things without thinking and destroy relationships in an instant. How good are you at thinking about what you are about to say before you say it? When have you thought, “Uh, oh. Did I just say that out loud?”|
|07/22/2018||First Reading: Jeremiah 23:1-6
Epistle: Ephesians 2:11-22
Gospel: Mark 6:30-34, 53-56
|"Lost and Alone"||Even in the midst of a crowd, some people will feel lost without anyone to turn to. God’s chosen people had a host of religious leadership but were not truly being cared for by them. When have you felt lost and alone with no one to turn to in your time of darkness? When have you reached out to someone who seemed alone to make sure they knew that someone cared for them?|
|07/29/2018||Old Testament: 2 Kings 4:42-44
Epistle: Ephesians 3:14-21
Gospel: John 6:1-21
|"Abundance in Scarcity"||So often we believe we don’t have enough to offer people. We stock-pile food, clothing, and money believing this will keep us from going hungry, naked, or without the necessities of life. Yet, there are others who go without even the basic needs taken care of as we hoard all this to ourselves. Do you give to others out of your need or out of your abundance? Honestly, how much faith do you put in “stuff” to feel safe and secure?|
