Pastor Lynn Cory, author and founder of Neighborhood Initiative, is our guest preacher as we launch a six week series based on his work. We are learning how to practically connect with our neighbors, and through prayer and acts of compassion, be a blessing right where we live.

We encourage you to do this series in small groups, ask a couple of friends to join you, or do it in your own home.

Pastor Lynn’s book is available at worship or you can download the Kindle version here.

Guest preacher, LIFEhouse’s own Rebecca Leinhard, CEO of Tierra del Sol (tierradelsol.org), gives a compelling view of what it means to be created in the image of God. Using Genesis 1 and 2, Psalm 139, and her own experiences, we gain solid insights about how we all need support in our lives in a variety of ways, and how we are stronger together as we provide that support, like gardeners of a well tended garden.

“We are only as good as the supports we need to function across multiple environments…”

We don’t need to seek new wisdom about how people can live in healthy and thriving community. We do need to try what God has already handed down in teachings like the ten commandments.
Relationships with parents, spouse, family, friends, work, community…it’s all here

Part three of a four part series on the Ten Commandments

First in a four week series on the Ten Commandments.

Exodus 19 speaks of God establishing a covenant, a promise, with his people; his sons and daughters. That’s relationship. Our identity is given to us freely by God.

Then in Exodus 20 God gives us the Ten Commandments. Only after he has established the relationship does he call out our obedience.

In other words, 19 comes before 20…

Prayer is so much more than we think. Direct connection with the creator of the universe and an ongoing relationship of trust, wisdom, direction, and power available to those who call out…amazing…
