SixEight Summer of Rest

Are you tired? We are too. Due to the pandemic, people are more anxious, stressed and worn out than ever. Mental health is at a crisis level for so many people, and the last thing we need is to add more to our plates. So, as a church, we are taking the summer to rest, spend some time with one another and Jesus. If you're tired and just need a place to breathe, we're here to help you! No Sunday sermons, just worship, community, prayer and sharing.

Rest

By design, we need regular rest. We can't run full-speed without taking time to slow down. Just like our muscles need rest in order to come back stronger after a tough workout, we need rest if we want to come back stronger. Our Sunday morning gathering is a time to just that.

Unity

We believe it's possible to be unified even in the presence of diversity. There are plenty of voices trying to divide us. We want to be radically committed to the middle. Whether it's in our neighborhood, amongst other churches or in the community, we want to be a source of unity, not division. We will do this by gathering with other churches on June 27th for a time of celebration and fun!

Perspective

With such an overwhelming year where we have dealt with overwhemling narratives all around us, as a defense mechanism, many of us have gotten very narrowly focused on something or someone. With so many agendas being crammed in our face, it's hard to see through them to what lies ahead. We need some perspective. We're doing this with a daily reading from Luke.

Summer with Jesus, Summer of Rest, W3D2

Today's Bible Reading, Luke 12:35-48 35 “Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, 36 like servants waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. 37 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. Truly I tell you, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them. 38 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the middle of the night or toward daybreak. 39 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. 40 You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.” 41 Peter asked, “Lord,…

SixEight Summer With Jesus, W3D1

Today's Bible Reading, Luke 12:22-34 22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. 24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! 25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life[b]? 26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? 27 “Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe…

SixEight Summer With Jesus, W1D5

Today's Bible Reading, Luke 11:1-13 One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.” 2 He said to them, “When you pray, say: “‘Father,[a]hallowed be your name,your kingdom come.[b]3 Give us each day our daily bread.4 Forgive us our sins,    for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.[c]And lead us not into temptation.[d]’” 5 Then Jesus said to them, “Suppose you have a friend, and you go to him at midnight and say, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread; 6 a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have no food to offer him.’ 7 And suppose the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children and I are in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’ 8 I tell you, even though he will not get up and give…

Today's Bible Reading, Luke 10:38-42 38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” 41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one.[a] Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” As you read today's reading, consider asking yourself these questions: What interested you?What encouraged you?What confused you?What convicted you?How will this change my life?
