I Solemnly Vow… Series


This is a five week series on our commitment to live out our faith as active members of Emmanuel Church. In the United Methodist Church, we take vows to participate in the life of the church through our prayers, presence, witness, gifts and service. These vows move us toward being more faithful followers of Jesus. We will explore together how we can be more faithful to Christ as we live out the vows we have taken. 


October 21st: Prayers 
Scripture: Colossians 1:3-10, James 5:13-18 


As a member of Emmanuel Church, we commit to praying for one another, for our leaders, and for God’s vision for us. Prayer is the most powerful tool that we have. It’s how we build and strengthen our relationship with God. We pray because we believe it changes things. It changes us. Do you pray for your church? How have you seen God move through prayer? 


October 28th: Presence 
Scripture: Hebrews 10: 21-25, John 15:1-11


We were not designed to do life on our own. We were created for community. And in order to be a part of a community of believers, we have to show up and participate. We have to be invested in the lives of the people we are surrounded by. As we invest in each other’s lives, our relationships centered on Christ, we learn how to be more faithful followers of Jesus. Then, we are able to hold each other accountable to modeling our lives after Jesus. In order to be connected, we must be present, both in body and in interaction. 


November 4th: Witness – All Saints Day- Communion 
Scripture: Romans 5:6-9, Romans 10:13-17


Following Jesus is not easy, and being a living witness to what he has done in our lives is a difficult task for some. We do not all have to be gifted evangelists to be faithful witnesses to what God has done in our lives. You have a story to tell. You know about the love and forgiveness of Jesus because someone shared it with you, they were a living witness. Now we must do the same. Who in your life needs to experience grace and forgiveness? Who needs to hear about a love that will change their entire life? Will you be the one to go and tell them? 


November 11th: Gifts 
Scripture: 1 Timothy 6:17-19, Mark 12:41-44


Money is uncomfortable to talk about because it is very personal; however, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t talk about it. Our financial giving is an important part of being a member of the church, but even more so, it is an important aspect of our faith. Jesus instructs us to give freely and sacrificially. If we have an abundance, we are to give to those who are in need. We should not hold onto our finances while someone else is struggling and we know we could help. As followers of Jesus, we are to care for one another’s needs. And a tenth of all that we have should be given back to God, the one who has so richly blessed us in many different ways.

 
November 18th: Service – Welcoming of New Members 
Scripture: John 13:1-17, 1 Peter 4:8-11


Service is central to who we are as followers of Jesus. Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, the job of a servant, to model for them how they were to lead. Serving others should never be beneath us. It can be a humbling experience to serve another people, or even to be on the receiving end of someone else’s service. Jesus was humble in both regards, we are to do the same. Service takes many different forms and looks different for each of us. We serve most enthusiastically when we are using the gifts God has given us to bless others. How are you serving others? What challenges do you wrestle with? What do you need to be doing that you have been putting off?
