Lenten Sermon Series

hunger pains

During the Sundays of Lent, our pastors will be preaching a series of sermons arranged around the theme of Hunger Pangs. The series, which focuses on the Christian’s deep desire for justice, will challenge us to find ways to respond to places of injustice in the world as we look at issues like world hunger, war, domestic violence, health care, poverty and homelessness.  We will be talking about local, national, and international ministries and programs that make a concrete difference in these challenging places, including KIVA, Habitat for Humanity, Bread for the World, UMCOR, and more… John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, once said that “All religion is social religion.”  With this encouragement we will spend these weeks leading up to Easter exploring what Jesus says about social justice.
