We’re doing a new sermon series between Easter and Pentecost called We Are a New Creation Community. Our first message today is from 1 John 4.16-21: “A Community of Love.” In it we set up the series, including explaining how the church connects to the resurrection and to what God is doing in the world. Then we establish what is most central: love. Love for God, love for one another, and love for our neighbors. That’s what it means to be a disciple, so that’s what it means to be a member of a church.
