I just wanted to touchbase with you and let you in on what is coming up. This summer we want to run with the "Summer of Love" theme.
Big Idea: God is Love. We are lovers. The Ten Commandments can be seen as his instructions on how we are made to love Him and each other. Jesus’ “Greatest Commandment” summarizes the Ten when he says to “love the Lord your God and love your neighbor as yourself.” The first four commandments teach us to love God and the last six teach us to love each other.
The series will follow this flow:
Part One: Love God
1. Love God first – Part 1.
2. Love God first – Part 2.
3. Love God’s reputation.
4. Love God in this pattern: work hard, then rest.
Part Two: Love People
5. Love your parents.
6. Love life.
7. Love marriage.
8. Love justice.
9. Love truth.
10. Love contentment.
The Vibe: VCC as a whole will embrace Summer of Love as a theme for the summer of 2009, not just as a weekend series. The big themes for the summer are: Love, Fun, & Community.
Anyway, I wanted to let you know what I know about what is to come this summer.
