NEW SERMON SERIES FOR THE MONTH OF MAY

Perseverance During Pandemic: A Christian Response to Covid-19

May 3 (Communion Liturgy) 
“The Purpose of Connections”
· Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
· Colossians 2:2-5Synopsis: The foundation of our humanness (connections) has been shaken. How do we cope in the midst of physical distancing? The spread of Christianity in the early centuries was largely due to the care and compassion shown to the distressed during adversity. 

May 10 (Baby Dedication)
“The Pride of Control”
· Proverbs 16:18
· Matthew 6:25-34Synopsis: Human beings are control freaks. How do we function when it seems we’ve lost control and are consumed by anxiety? Pride can be a major sickness of the soul. Keep our eyes focused on God’s purposes. 

May 17
 “The Practice of Calm”
· Proverbs 12:25
· Matthew 11:28-30Synopsis: Looking at basic, practical ways we can calm ourselves daily. Developing a structure of habits that reorient us in a time of disorientation (sense of powerlessness). Transformation through the renewing of our minds.

May 24 (Ascension)
“The Power of Construct”
· Isaiah 46:9
· Hebrews 12:1-3Synopsis: The importance of remembering God’s past faithfulness. The Scriptures constantly point us backwards remembering that God’s narrative is way bigger than our current circumstances and God’s mercy endures forever. 

May 31 (Pentecost)
“The Promise of Christ”
· Deuteronomy 31:6
· Philippians 2:1-11Synopsis: The conclusion of the series summarizes the purpose, pride, practice, and power of the promise/person of Jesus Christ. The encouragement is to stand strong and be courageous moving forward.
