Gestures of God’s Love: Understanding the Sacraments

Do you want to grow in your faith in Christ?

Do you want to be assured of God's love for you?

Cultural anthropologists are increasingly recognizing the value of rituals because of the mysterious power they embed. The rituals God has appointed for the church, however, have value beyond mere cultural rituals.

In this sermons series for our Vespers (or evening) services, we will investigate the meaning of the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper and probe their function in the lives of believers.

In so doing, we will see them especially as gestures of God's love, as touching expressions of his grace, designed to encourage and feed us in our often tiring pilgrimages of faith. Consider joining us to discover the amazing rituals God has provided to highlight and augment the even more amazing love of Christ.
