Due to the power outage, there is only one service that will be posted today.  The Upper Room service did not take place.

We begin our look at the Fruit of the Spirit with Love.  We are told throughout scripture that the church is the Bride of Christ.  Thus, if we are a part of Christ’s church, then we are living today as God’s beloved.  God’s love claims us.  We are loved in a way that is everlasting and unchanging; we are always valuable to Him.  God’s love not only claims us, but fuels us to love others.  We love, because God first loved us!

Based on Galatians 5:13-23 (NRSV) and 1 John 4:16b-21.
