Boat Stories | Series Overview
How do you typically “church-shop?” What are you looking for in a church community? Are you mostly interested in finding a church that accommodates your needs and gives you a comfortable experience? Or, are you looking for a church that equips you to serve and deploys your gifts to make a difference in the world. In this 6-week sermon series, we’re diving (wink, wink) into stories from the bible with boats in them because surprisingly, there’s more than you realize. We hope boats will help us to discover how God works and what he is calling us to do as Christ-followers. We thought this theme was perfect as we sail into the warmer, summer months ahead.
Week 1: The Story of Jonah
April 24 | Youth Sunday
No boat is safe when you’re running away from God. Don’t assume God will keep you safe when you’re living in sin.
Week 2: The Story of Noah’s Ark
May 1, 2022 | Genesis 7:15 – 20, 23b – 24
God knows how to protect his people. When facing danger, we are invited to follow his directions for the best results.
Week 3: The Story of Baby Moses
Mother’s Day | Children’s Drama
May 8, 2022 | Exodus 2:1 - 10
No boat is too small when God is watching over you. When situations look hopeless, trust that God can work things out.
Week 4: The Calling of James & John
May 15, 2022 | Matthew 4:18 - 23
When Jesus calls, leave everything behind just as the first disciples did. Nothing should come before following God.
Week 5: The Story of Jesus Preaching from the Boat
May 22, 2022 | Matthew 13:1 – 9
God’s message is not just for church. Look for ways to tell people about Jesus, everywhere you go!
Week 6: Paul Takes the Good News on a Boat
Memorial Day Weekend
May 29, 2022 | Acts 20:13 – 24 (Rev. Arum Kim preaching)
God’s message comes through people who travel. Think about how our church can take the Good News to new places through each one of us!
