Honor Your Commitments
Malachi 2:1-16, Matthew 22:37-39   

Honoring commitments shows the depth of our character. We teach our children not to quit; have we quit on God?

Be Devoted to one another
Romans 12:10, Matthew 22-37-39, Ruth 1: 1-17  

Are you all in? No, really, are you all in with the community that God has given to you? If not, why not?
 

July 23, 2017
Be Kind to one another
Ephesians 4:32, Colossians 3:12-14

Who we are and how we treat others makes a difference in the world.  We all need to give and receive compassion and kindness. Jesus leads the way.

No Small Talk
Genesis 12:1-5

If you want the God of the universe to speak to you, you better be ready for him to reveal something important. God doesn’t do small talk.

We are God’s Stewards

In an attempt to have better understanding of our role as stewards, we can compare our positions as stewards to the function and responsibility assumed by the trustee of a trust. In the same manner as a trustee, a steward is a manager who has the latitude to make decisions in the best interest of the owner.

What Christians Are Made For 

Would you do Mother Teresa's job for a million dollars? Most of us wouldn't, and, as it turns out, she probably wouldn't have either! It begs the question: as Christians what are we made for? Shane Claiborne sheds light in the clip below. Want more inspiration? See other videos here.

 


Resources for Stewardship and Financial Planning

The Mid-Atlantic United Methodist Foundation was founded to "[foster and support] benevolent ministries in the name of Jesus Christ...".

Summer Worship @ CSA

Join us for four casual-dress, spirit-filled, worship services at CSA this summer. We'll gather in our beautiful chapel and enjoy soul-stirring music on our new piano on August 13, 20, 27, and September 3. All services will begin at 10 AM. If you're a flip-flops 'til October person, we've got you covered -- we'll worship in the Spirit in our casual clothes and we invite you to come a little early for a pre-service coffee fellowship.

Generous Reflection

Far too often, we live with a false sense of ownership of the things we possess. We can easily fall into the trap of believing that we are the owners of our property. Don’t we think that we deserve what we have because we consider ourselves smart and hard working? Our success is viewed as our individual accomplishments. However, through faith God gives us, we understand the words of Deuteronomy 8:18: “But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.” God makes all things possible including our ability to work and make money.

A Little Bit About Us: Concord Methodist Church was formed in 1819, making it one of the oldest Methodist churches in Montgomery County, MD. St. Andrew's Methodist Church formed in 1956 to serve the growing suburban population. The two churches merged in 1976 to become Concord-St. Andrew's United Methodist Church and the 35th anniversary was celebrated in October 2011. Learn more about us here.

Whether you are visiting or searching for a church home, you are always welcome to worship with us. Our address is 5910 Goldsboro Rd., Bethesda, MD 20817.

Worship lifts our spirirts and strengthens our relationships with God. It also stirs our imaginations, fills us with wonder, and offers us fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Come as you are! Be our guest! Experience the love of God and Christian community.

Sunday worship starts at 10:00 am followed by coffee hour in the Fellowship Hall.
