Current Sermon Series
2016-2017 Year Theme:
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
– Jesus (Acts 1:8)
“Witness” means many things. It is something we do—we witness things that happen. It is something we share—we speak of what we have seen or experienced. It is something we are—we are witnesses. What do people see when they look at us? What do they see when they look at our church? What kind of witness do we share and embody? This year Foundry will explore and practice our call to be Christ’s witnesses, to look for Spirit’s activity in all areas of our lives, and to seek deeper integration of our words and actions. In this challenging time of transition and uncertainty in the history of our denomination and our nation, the call to see Christ and share Christ and be more like Christ as persons and as a congregation seems particularly urgent. What is next for Foundry? WITNESS.
Current Seasonal Sermon Series:
“Actions speak louder than words.” How true! Our words only have power if those words are backed up with concrete and visible choices, priorities, and relationships. Do our lives “speak” faithfully of the Kin-dom? To be a disciple of Jesus is to live our call: to love God and love each other. How? Our Wesleyan tradition gives us a map for the journey, spiritual practices to help us grow in love of God and neighbor. Together we will explore these concrete actions that shape and form us on the disciple’s path. Our destination? Lives that—even without words—communicate LOVE.
