September Sundays

September 8, 2022

Join us as we return from summer to a new, exciting, worship and education schedule for the entire family. Adult Education resumes on Sunday, September 11. Instead of weekly offerings, we’re going to gather on the second and fourth Sunday of the month. In addition we will host another new members’ class on September 17. Also beginning on September 11 and continuing on the following second Sundays, childcare will be provided for young children during the worship service, youth groups for middle and high school youth will have a regular once-per-month schedule and multiage events are planned throughout the church seasons.

Many people struggle with perfectionism. “Perfectionism,” Brené Brown explains, “is not the same thing as striving to be your best. Perfectionism is the belief that if we live perfect, look perfect, and act perfect, we can minimize or avoid the pain of blame, judgment, and shame. It’s a shield. It’s a twenty-ton shield that we lug around thinking it will protect us when, in fact, it’s the thing that’s really preventing us from flight.” It doesn’t help that we find Jesus saying, “Be perfect even as your heavily Father is perfect” (Mt. 5:48). As we’ll see, this is a poor translation. Jesus is calling us to something other than perfection, calling us to a better way.
