Focus on Celebration

As we explore what it means to celebrate God as a church family, this series will be contemplative in nature. The goal is to slow down and soak in God’s word leading us to form a deep, lasting celebratory habit rather than fostering only momentary praise. We want our whole life to be a praise to our God. The mystery of the gospel that Paul portrays so clearly in his letter to the church in Ephesus requires or even produces a response like a well-tended tree inevitably produces fruit.

Our hope in leaning into the discipline of celebration is that it will help us seamlessly wed these two faces of the gospel: message and response. As we receive the good news that Christ is Lord of his church, may this news produce in us a response of celebration for all Christ has accomplished for us. Together our lives will become a celebration of God’s faithfulness.
