“We’re all searching. Sometimes the search is easy: simply type a question and the answer pops up. But sometimes our questions are complicated, and the answers are difficult to see and harder to articulate. How do we discover and examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life?” This series will be based on Adam Hamilton’s book Creed, as he presents answers to these questions that are contained in the Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs. In this new sermon series for Lent, we take a closer look at the Apostles Creed and consider important questions of life and our beliefs. And we consider, perhaps the most important question of all, why does it matter? Pastor Dan is facilitating a discussion on the Apostles Creed for the next 3 weeks after worship from 11:20-12:30.

Have you ever scratched your head sometimes after reading Jesus’ parables and wish you could say to him, “I don’t get it. Put it in plain language.” Peter did! In this series we look at just some of Jesus’ parables and try to make sense of what he was talking about. Perhaps in the process we also gain an understanding of how Jesus wanted us to live.
Feb 5:(Communion) The Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37)
Feb 12: The Widow and the Unjust Judge (Luke 18:1-8)
Feb 19: The Mustard Seed (Matthew 13:31-32)
Feb 26: The Talents ( Luke 19:11-26)
We hope to see you at Kenwood soon!

On Sunday, Oct 2 we will begin a sermon series and small group called Treasure: On Faith and Money. It will be based on Jesus’ words, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). If you are interested in the Small Group, please contact Dan Kim for more information. Over a period of four weeks, we will look at the many ways that our treasure (time, energy, money) affects our hearts. We will consider how financial challenges in our personal lives affect our relationships with people and with God. We will see how giving helps to determine the way we feel and act. If you have stress related to money or feel there may be more that God is calling you to do with your resources, this will be a helpful study. At the end of the four weeks, we will have the opportunity to make personal commit-ments of giving to our church for the coming year. All of us will receive commitment cards in the mail, and the cards will also be available on Sunday mornings. We can fill out these cards and bring them to worship on Sunday, Oct 23. We look forward to an exciting month considering our treasure and God’s treasure.
