“Twisted Love” sermon series resources

On May 13-27, the sermon sermon series is “Twisted Love—Family Secrets, Lies and Heartaches”:

May 13 Bullies and Controllers (Mother’s Day)
2 Samuel 12:1-10
When one person’s power and privilege dominate the family, abusive relationships follow.
May 20 Surviving Rape and Abuse (Pentecost Sunday)
2 Samuel 13:1-19
Perpetrators of sexual and physical abuse must be named and exposed and victims must be given space to heal.
May 27 Silent, Seething Anger
2 Samuel 13:20-39
Unspoken and unresolved anger can rip families apart.

Because of the sensitive topic of the series, we want to suggest the resources listed below. They are available here as a PDF download or can be found in the sanctuary lobby during the series.

The rest of the sermon topics for 2018 can be found on our Sermon page. You may listen to or download transcripts of past sermons on our site as well.
