Current Sermon / Series
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
22 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

This week’s worship.
Super Bowl Party 2020!!
Join us Sunday, February 2nd for our annual Super Bowl Party. Whether you like football or not, this is a great excuse to get together, eat some good food, laugh at dumb commercials, and build community.
We’ve used many formats over the years – multiple “regional” parties, a Super Bowl Party and an Anti-Super Bowl Party. This year we are keeping it simple and just doing one big one. The Bazers (3809 Sparrow Pond Ln., Raleigh) have volunteered to host and they have lots of room for all our niches – youth hanging out upstairs, football fans watching the game in one room, anti-football people chatting about Netflix shows in another room… It’s the best of all worlds.
The game starts at 6:30 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Bring a dish to share.
Community Brunch 1/26 After Worship
On Sunday, January 26th, we will be discussing the importance of Community in our Great Omission (Refresh 2020) series. So we are going to put our money where our mouth is … actually, that’s just a figure of speech. We’re going to put food where our mouth is, which is way better!
Following worship, our youth ministry will lead us in a fun Family Brunch. Our teens will be cooking pancakes and waffles (start praying for them now!), and youth families will be providing some fun dishes to complete the brunch. Be sure to stay around after church to eat some good food, meet some new people, and/or laugh and connect with some old people.
Children’s Ministry Volunteers Needed
Starting this month, we have a few vacant volunteer slots in Ekklesia Kids. Like all our Sunday morning ministry teams, the commitment is once a month. If you are interested, email our fearless kids leader Lindsay Stevenson. She’d be delighted to hear from you.
