Prodigal Love

Many of us want to tell others about God but are not confident in how. In this series you will learn foundational truths about our faith and the nature of God’s prodigal love and how to talk about them with others. Many people misunderstand the meaning of “prodigal.” By providing particular foundational truths about Christianity and describing works of God as “prodigal” and lavish, we are equipping the congregation to embrace their understandings and empowering them to share these with their neighbors.

August 18 | Prodigal Gift – John 4:1-13
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,
but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” You may know a person who does not feel worthy of God’s love or who is unaware of God’s desire to know them. In this sermon we will learn how Jesus interacted with people in such a way that they discovered their worth and the possibility of new life.

August 25 | Prodigal Chances – Exodus 4:1-9 
Then Moses replied, “But what if they don’t believe me or pay attention to me? They might say to me, ‘The Lord didn’t appear to you!’” Your friends might believe that you can only be a Christian if you’re perfect. This couldn’t be further from the truth. God calls all kinds of people, including those with a lot of self-doubt. Moses tried to tell God why he shouldn’t be a part of freeing the Israelites. We will reflect on how God can use our self-doubt and help our neighbors see that you don’t have to have it all together to know and love God.
