November 3 – All Saints’ Day – Blessed are the pretty? Blessed are the popular and productive? Blessed are the self-sufficient? No! Blessed rather are the poor, the meek, those who cannot feed (Matthew 5:6) or defend themselves (Matthew 5:7, 9), for they exhibit just how much God gives and does for humankind. If He calls sinners His children (1 John 3:1) and makes saints of such as us (Revelation 7:9-10), how can mere age, appearance, or inability disqualify anyone else?

Welcome to our visitors. We pray all will be spiritually enriched by your visit to this “House of God.” Here Christ breaks the silence that surrounds mortal man in his sin and death. Here in Christ Jesus we hear the voice of the Eternal One, and we hear the voice of the Father, and that He loves, that He forgives and that in the resurrection of Christ, He has made us His Children and has given us victory over death itself.

November 3

"Stranger Danger"

Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler

Genesis Series - The different ways we relate to strangers reveal the contradiction of being

human.

(Genesis 18)

November 10

"For Such a Downer"

Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler

Genesis Series - The cross of Jesus is not a downer, but it is an equalizer. If you think you're up

on top and you're pushing others aside, the cross of Jesus will bring you down. And if you're down

and desperate for some company, you have a friend in the crucified Jesus.

(Genesis 21)

November 17

"The Dawn Wall"

Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler

Genesis Series - Sacrifice is acting on the hope of a better future by offering up something valuable in the

present.

(Genesis 22)
