Core Values: God Centered Family

Please read 1 Corinthians 13 and use these notes to prepare for Sunday morning worship.

Sermon Focus: A Vision for God Centered Family

Our Core Value: God Centered Family

We seek to empower one another through transformational worship, continual learning, and meaningful fellowship in order to create a safe place of grace and compassion in which we might build an intergenerational Christian family and grow closer to God.

  • How does this core value reflect the passage from1 Corinthian 13? What does it mean when we claim this as a core value of SSUMC?
  • In what ways do you see radical inclusivity in our church and in the community? How might we seek to be a stronger God centered Family?

“But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” – Joshua 24:15

“God’s dream is that you and I and all of us will realize that we are family, that we are made for togetherness, for goodness, and for compassion.” – Desmond Tutu
