Our theme for this year is “Walking through the Word.” Our teaching will focus on the Story of God and how our stories intersect. As we learn more about “The Story,” we discover the amazing ways that God is part of our story and the invitation we receive to become part of God’s Story. In the fall, we will spend 15 weeks working our way through the Story of the Old Testament in four sections. The first section will be four weeks focusing on “The Way of Names” asking the question, “Who am I?” The second section will be five weeks focusing on “The Way of Freedom” asking the question, “Who are we as a people?” The third section will be two weeks focusing on “The Way of God” asking the question, “Who is God in Change and Faithfulness?” The final section will be the season of Advent (four weeks leading up to Christmas) focusing on “The Way of Peace” asking the question, “Where is our hope, joy and love?”
This week we start our next sermon series entitled, "The Way of Freedom." Our focus question is, "Who are we as a people?" We start this series with a look at the Ten Commandments and how this covenant between God and us shapes our relationship with God and with the world. Pastor Rodney will be away this weekend, but we are excited to welcome Pastor Phyllis Palsma to our pulpit. Rev. Palsma is a chaplain at the Christian Health Care Center in Wyckoff. Come join us on the journey. It’s a journey we make together, as God calls us to a community that follows Christ. Parkside is the place where you belong!
