Upcoming Sermon Series: 

With God as Our Witness

 July 1 - 31, 2017

 Every July, Foundry hosts its annual Outstanding Preacher Series. During this series five gifted guest preachers come to share the word of God with the congregation and community. Our 2017 Outstanding Preacher Series will bring a wide variety of voices to the Foundry pulpit to challenge, encourage, and inspire our ongoing witness. This year’s guest preachers will help us reflect on what it means to live “with God as our witness” in what is sure to be a strong culmination of this year’s guiding theme “Next: Witness”.

2016-2017 Theme: 

Next: Witness

Next: Witness 

“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.
