5/31 Worship- SpiritGarden: Gentleness

Mark 5:25-34. Gentleness has the ring of “wimpiness” which is not a good characterization at all. Gentleness has more of a balanced, “power-under-control” kind of feel when it comes to the Bible. We are in the home stretch of the SpiritGarden series; as a fruit of the Spirit, we could all do with a little more gentleness. Come and hear about it (or listen online)!

5/24 Worship- SpiritGarden: Faithfulness

Ruth 1:16-17, 2:10-12, 3:1-10. Faithfulness requires a longterm approach in a short-term world. When others may be looking for the quick fix, a person of faithfulness looks at the long haul. As we grow the spiritual fruit of faithfulness in our lives, we find ourselves remaining true to God and others in our lives by the grace of God. Faithfulness does not spring up overnight but grows over a lifetime of commitment and connection with God in the Holy Spirit. Join us this weekend as we take seriously the long view God wants for us in faithfulness.

5/10 Worship- SpiritGarden: Kindness

Luke 6:27-36. ¬†On first glance, kindness may not seem to have the same panache as love, joy, peace and patience but as we will see, kindness is a fruit of the Spirit that stretches us in relating to one another in everyday living. Maybe “random acts of kindness” are exactly what the Spirit hopes for as part of our fruitful living! Come and hear about it Sunday.
