Title of Sermon: “Learning to Be Content”
Based on these scriptures: Exodus 20:17, 1 Philippians 2:1-8, Galatians 5:22-26, and Philippians 4:10-14
Covetousness arises when we are not content with what we have. It arises when we look at someone else and envy their position or their possessions. Greed, envy, and covetousness can lead to other more hurtful and harmful sins against those around us. Covetousness is defeated when we look to God to supply our needs and do not look to what those around us have.
We look forward to you sharing with us for worship!

Hebrews 12:1-2, 20-24, 1 John 1:1-3 and 1 Corinthians 12:7, 3:21-23
Communion is fellowship: fellowship with God, fellowship with other believers here on earth, but also a fellowship with the Church Triumphant, those who have gone to be with the Lord and with whom we will be reunited someday. This is both our present experience and our future hope that God has given us in Christ.
