June 2018 Sermons

2-3 Celebration Weekend, I Saw That, Romans 1:8
Celebrating what God has done in our lives this past ministry season through sharing stories (open mic) and expressing our gratitude to God and those he used.

Sometimes we think nobody sees and nobody appreciates and we’re not having an impact, but nothing could be further from the truth. Today we celebrate and remind each other how God has used each and every one of us for His glory.

9-10 Grown Ups, Ephesians 4:1-17
It’s fun to ask kids what that want to be when they grow up. At five they might be choosing between being a fireman and a veterinarian. But the truth is they don’t know. And more important than what they do is who they are. Both are discovered over time. The same is true for churches. When we started NRF we knew some things God gave us to get us started like “Love God, Love Each Other and Make a Difference” but we are still learning what those mean. This week we will be talking about where we are, who we are and what are the next steps in becoming a mature expression of Jesus in this community and world.

16-17 Looking Like Our Father, Luke 6:27-36
Sometimes it’s unmistakable, you look at a kid and you say “boy he or she looks like their dad”. The same is true spiritually. Our Heavenly Father has given each of us some of his good looks, qualities and characteristics that reflect his love and grace in this world. This Father’s Day, we will meditate on what it means to be children of our Heavenly Father.

23-24 VBS Weekend
The VBS kids will lead us in worship this weekend, teaching us what they learned during their week at Shipwrecked VBS, that they are rescued by Jesus.
