Key Scriptures: Ephesians 4:11-14; 1 Timothy 2:1-2; Titus 3:1-2; Romans 13:1-7

When it comes to politics, many people wonder if we can, or should, talk about it in worship. The short answer is yes, we can and should talk about it. In this first message of a new series, we dive into why it is important for us to talk about politics at church and how we can do so in constructive ways.

Key Scriptures: Galatians 3:26-29; Ephesians 2:11-22

The data makes it clear: the state of our union is divided. While there have been other divisive periods in our history, this time our differences are driving us further apart than ever before. But there is still some good news to be found – both from a faith and a political perspective.

Key Scripture: Ephesians 4:25-32

Given the deep divides that exist in our country, it can be difficult to live into the call of Christ to be a reconciling presence in the world. In today’s message, we talk about specific tools to help you engage with people with whom you disagree in a more faithful way.

Key Scriptures: Samuel 8:6-9, Hosea 13:10

In 2024 it will be difficult to find Jesus in the political discourse around us. However, if we look at the stories of Jesus, we will see a person who engaged with the political discourse of his day head on. It is easy for us to think that it is our job as Christians to sit out of politics, but that is not what Jesus did. In 2024 we must acknowledge the parts of Jesus’s story that pushed for social change, equality, and a new kingdom. This week, we will look at what the politics of Jesus mean for us in 2024.

Key Scriptures: John 8:32; Proverbs 12:22; Psalm 120:2; Psalm 101:7; Proverbs 12:19; Colossians 3:9-10; Ephesians 4:29; Philippians 4:8; Titus 2:7-8; Galatians 5:22-23; Matthew 16:26
