Upstream Resolutions
9 am and 10:45 am

The Bible calls followers of Jesus to no longer be conformed to the pattern of the world, but to be transformed instead.  What does that mean for Christians in the 21st Century?  Today we look at three resolutions that distinguish Christians from non-believers; resolutions that help us “Live Upstream in a Downstream World”.  Read Romans 12:2 and Daniel chapter 1 to prepare.

• View or print Sunday’s sermon outline here.  All outlines here.

January Memory Verse:
“You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.”.”
