This coming Sunday we continue with our summer sermon series on Genesis by looking at one of the most far-reaching passages of the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) — Genesis 12:1-9 — the call of and promise to Abraham. Recognized as a key historical person of faith in Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, Abraham (initially Abram – find out why Sunday) sets the stage for a major shift in Genesis and in God’s dealings with humankind. Other passages for Sunday: Hebrews 11:8-12; Matthew 3:1-11.
Summer sermon series on parts of the Book of Genesis. Some of you may recall that we did a similar sermon series last summer, but Genesis is so vast and full of interesting stories that we’re able to do a completely different series over the next two months. Schedule of future Genesis themes:
July 29 – Genesis 12:1-9 – Abraham and Sarah.
Aug. 5 – Genesis 18 & 19 (selected) – Sodom and Gomorrah.
Aug. 19 – Genesis 22:1-19 – Abraham called to sacrifice Isaac.
Aug. 26 – Genesis 37:1-12, 18-36 – Joseph part 1.
September 2 – Genesis 45:1-15 – Joseph part 2.
August 5th – Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper.
“Doors Open Banff”
Rundle UC will be taking part in this annual event once again this year. Sunday, August 19th, from 1 – 4 p.m. our church will be open for visitors. We will need at least one person to volunteer as a greeter for those 3 hours, and also open and close the church. Please contact Katy and/or Dave if you can help our church in this way.
