The church will come out of quarantine on January 3.
Join us then as we begin a new year
focused on building the Kingdom of God.
Building the Kingdom of God
Who Do You Say I Am?
A Seven Week Study of the Master Builder
January 3 – February 14, 2021
Once when Jesus was praying alone, with only the disciples near him, he asked them, “Who do the crowds say that I am?” They answered, “John the Baptist; but others, Elijah; and still others, that one of the ancient prophets has arisen.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered, “The Messiah of God.” --Luke 9:18–20
We have many names for Jesus. The Bread of Life. The Good Shepherd. The Son of God. The Messiah. The Lamb of God. Savior. All of these names remind us of the divinity of Jesus, but we cannot forget that Jesus is also fully human – a son, a brother, a friend, a teacher. He is God-in-the-flesh who walked with us, laughed and cried with us, the one who died and was resurrected for us. When Jesus walked the earth as a human, he lived a life that continues to teach us how we are to be the people God that created us to be.
As we prepare to emerge from the lockdown and isolation of 2020, we have a chance for a new beginning. In 2021, rather than joining the movement to rebuild the world we knew before Covid – with all of its chaos and pain, we are going to be activists in Jesus’ movement to build the Kingdom of God. We hope you join us in this series as we think of other names for Jesus – names that remind us of what he did in his earthly life that shows us how we can be activists for the Kingdom of God.
