Series Description

You probably don’t regard yourself as the next Elon Musk or Beyonce, a trendsetter who upsets the norm by blazing a new trail to follow. But, the truth is, God has already placed you in a position of great influence. The question is not whether you are an example to your family, neighbors, and co-workers, but what kind of example. In this series, we will explore the apostle Paul’s call to the young, inexperienced Timothy to “set an example” for an entire community by living and loving in a Christ-like way. How might our communities be different if we too own our influence as spiritual trendsetters?

Here we are fed at the Lord's Table; here we receive God's blessing and share it with others. With all our heart and soul, let us sing and worship our wonderful God!

Prayer of Illumination: Loving God, open our hearts and minds to hear your Word, shape our actions to live into your covenant, and make us faithful to your call. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.​
