A New Normal
April 11-May 2, 2021 | 4 Sermons
Life has changed since the last time we met as a church before the COVID-19 pandemic began. So, as we begin worshiping together in-person again, we're wondering what the future holds for our church.
But, even though the world around us has changed, our calling as a church has not. So, as we enter into our new normal, we'll explore who God has called us to be and what God has called us to do throughout history and in the world today.
New Normal, Same Priorities
April 11, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed nearly every aspect of our lives. It's changed the way we think about our health, the way we interact with others, the way we shop, and even the way we eat. So it seems like COVID-19 will also change the way we do church as well.
And, although church will be different in the future, God's calling for our church has not changed. In this sermon, we'll explore the primary calling for all churches...and be reminded that this priority never changes.
So Now What?

Have you ever had a moment where you found yourself ill-prepared for the circumstances you were facing? We all have...and that includes the church.
As we resume worshiping in-person for the first time in more than a year, we're asking ourselves "So now what do we do?" Well, even though we're facing unprecedented times, our calling s a church has not changed. It's been the same since the beginning of the church. In this sermon, we'll remind you what the church is called to do.

As the world around us continues to change, our calling as a church has not. But the church is not capable of fulfilling that calling on its own. And that's because the church is not some self-sustaining organism. No, the church is made up of individuals - just like you.
So, if the church is going to be who God has called us to be, we all have to do our part. And God has given you gifts that no one else has because God needs you to make the church what God has called it to be.

Over the last year, we have all had a lot of moments where we've thought "If only I could do ______ then things would feel normal again." And, even as things begin to slowly return to some semblance of normal today, many of us are continuing to look forward to the future when we can this "if only" things once again.
But, in our hurry to reach the future, we can't forget that God calls us to follow him in the present.
