not a fan.

In the season of Lent, the pastoral staff of FPCM preaches a sermon series “Not a Fan” based on Kyle Idelman’s book of the same title. In these Sundays, we consider at depth the question: Are you a Christian or are you a disciple?

---Running Out of Excuses

Sunday, March 29, 2020
Luke 14: 25 – 35
Rev. Stuart Spencer Preaching
Fifth Sunday of Lent

Focus: “So in Luke 14 Jesus defines the [discipleship] relationship by making it clear that if we follow him, we follow him alone. He won’t share us—not with money, not with a career, not even with your family . . . When Jesus explains that he will not share your affection or devotion, he isn’t just saying how he wants to be loved by you; he’s making it clear how he loves you.”

Starting Over

Sunday, March 22, 2020
John 3:1-17
Kelly LePenske Preaching
Focus: “Most of us don’t mind Jesus making some minor change in our lives but Jesus wants to turn our lives upside down. Fans don’t mind him doing a little touch-up work, but Jesus wants complete renovation. Fans come to Jesus thinking tune-up, but Jesus is thinking overhaul . . . Fans want Jesus to inspire them, but Jesus wants to interfere with their lives.” (Not a Fan, p. 31)

Ready to Follow

Sunday, March 8, 2020
Luke 5:27-32
Rev. Stuart Spencer Preaching
“During Jesus’ earthly ministry the disciple was to ‘follow’ Jesus, an allegiance to his person which is regarded as the decisive act, whether it is a literal or figurative attachment. Jesus disciples would follow their master around, often literally imitating him. The goal of Jewish disciples was someday to become masters . . . But Jesus’ disciples were to remain disciples of their Master and teacher and to follow him only.”
