Anouncements for July 29, 2012

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.
