Sermon Samples and Helps

See Sermon Helps from Dr. Michelle Morris at the Preaching & Worship Resources Page

The first sermon series, “Home Improvement: Renovated by Grace”, focuses on a Wesleyan understanding of grace, and will then propose class meetings as a means for growing in grace. This series will use our recent obsession with home improvement and building shows as an approachable means of understanding this process, building on the Wesleyan concept of grace as a house.  The second series, entitled “Mission Critical,”  focuses on the realities of the 21st century church, and integrate a case for recovery of the class meeting within that series.
