This week, we begin a special sermon series for our Stewardship Season (October 1-October 22) called “Where Our Treasure Is”:
Jesus said “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”. What matters most to us: in our lives and in a community of others following Jesus? How do we use our resources of money, time, and energy in service of those things that matter most? This series will focus on what COA’s Session leaders have discerned are its core values in these times. Each week, we will think about what matters most to us and how we live out what makes us who we are as a church. We hope you will be a part of it!
This week, we think together about one of our values: WE TREASURE….GATHERING AS AN ECLECTIC, IMPERFECT PEOPLE. Christ Our Anchor heard over and over again that part of what makes us a strong community is the space we make for differences. We still have a lot of work to do, but we are enriched by multiple ages, multiple backgrounds and multiple points of view. Sometimes that means community is messy and imperfect, but it is worth it. We will consider how we might continue to live up to this value, and how it might translate into other areas of our lives.
