I will be giving a series of four messages based on some sermons preached by the Rev. Dr. Melanie Rosa at Lakewood United Methodist Church in Lakewood, Colorado. She is currently serving as District Superintendent of the Mile High/Pikes Peak District. She has served all kinds and sizes of churches for over 25 years and has been included in Who’s Who of American Women and Outstanding Women of America. I thank Rosa for her willingness to let us use and adapt her material for these presentations through Homiletics.
Four consecutive treatments to answer the question “Why do we do church, anyway?”
Here is the schedule for the next four weeks.
Sept. 12: Why Church Reason 1: Community
Sept. 19: Why Church Reason 2: Real People
Sept 26: Why Church Reason 3: Money Matters
Oct. 3: Why Church? Reason 4: Mentors, this service followed by “Blessing of the Animals”
A special message will be given Nov. 7 by Cathy Wilson with Jewish humor and Biblical Word.
With a thankful heart,
Pastor Vicki Lerdahl
