Scripture and Wealth Disparity

John Schwartz will lead our worship service and our sermon title will be: The Biblical Jubilee
Scripture: Deuteronomy 15:7-11 Leviticus 25:1-23
Sermon theme: We will take a look at some Biblical solutions to income inequality, including : 1. Leave some of the cash crops for orphans, widows and immigrants. 2. The Biblical Jubilee when all property returns to its original owner. 
Much of our current income inequality comes from very wealthy individuals and corporations taking the lions share of our country’s GDP and those whose work produced that growing GDP and whose income has remained flat or got lower over the last 40 years. The theme of wealth disparity and its consequences is present in all of Scripture.


Loneliness and Peace

August 26, 2019

How do you find ease loneliness and find peace? Pastor Rick Warren says….”We weren’t meant to be lone ranger Christians…What you often call loneliness is really homesickness for God. You’ve just never recognized it. Nothing is ever going to compensate for that — no person, no experience, no drug, no success, no thing, no possession. Nothing is going to fill that aching hole in your heart until you know God.” A church family can help…Join a church family. There are many out there right here in Newark Valley…from conservative to progressive….We weren’t meant to be alone. Find a spot where you can get involved. Join where other people get to know you and where you find the support network you need when you’re going through those tough times. Take a chance. Take a risk.

When Ordinary People Become Prophets

July 14, 2019

Please Join us Sunday! Our Sermon Title: “When ordinary people become prophets”
Scripture:Amos 7:7-17 I am a herdsman and dresser of Sycamore trees

Deuteronomy 30:9-14 ..the word is very near to you. It is in your mouth and in your heart.

Romans 8:12-39 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God; 

Luke 10:25-37 The Good Samaritan 
Theme: Ordinary people, listening to God’s call rise and do extra ordinary things. Our times, and all times, need those listening faithfully to the word of God to speak, to say they way we are treating people and creation is contrary to God’s vision found in faithful reading of scripture and prayerful discernment.
