The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. - Aristotle
One aspect of growing as a disciple of Christ means that we are committed to responding to God’s wonderful generosity. Being generous is about aligning our priorities with God’s priorities, aligning our hearts with God’s heart. We grow in that generosity as part of our individual spirituality, we also grow in generosity within our faith community as the body of Christ. The disciples in the book of Acts understood the power of community and growing together in discipleship.
Join us for this series as we consider all that God has shared with us and what it means to live a life that is Greater Than.
All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all, as any had need. Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having the goodwill of all the people. And day by day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved. Act 2:44-47

If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
October 17: Investment > Quick Fix (Rev. Abi Foerster)
When we build a solid foundation, instead of going for the quick fix, we can withstand the trials that will come our way.
October 24: Abundance > Comfort (Rev. Arum Kim)
When we recognize all we have as a gift from God, we can give out of our abundance, rather than trying to keep ourselves comfortable.
October 31: Possibility > Status Quo (Rev. Abi Foerster)
Whether or not we like the way things are, we tend to default to the status quo. Leaning on Christ, we have the power to discover endless possibilities.
