Unprecedented Acts of Hospitality. What does it mean? How do we do it? Phil Maynard, author of Shift 2.0, writes that we love because we have been loved. We welcome others because we have been welcomed. We want others to discover grace because we have learned about the transforming power of God’s love and grace. Reflect on what brought you to First Newton. How were you welcomed? How do we welcome guests visiting the church today? What gifts do you have that you can share to make others feel truly welcomed into our church family?
Moses is the extraordinary hero of our faith. Join us in worship this Sunday as we visit the story of Moses facing the giants. Are there "giants" you're facing? What is it you fear? Together let's look at how Moses' story speaks to our life today and what it reveals to us about God, ourselves and about God’s will for our lives.
