“The Power of Seed” Worship Series from June 11-July 30. You are invited to plant a seed in the prayer garden and watch it grow for the next 8 weeks. At the end of summer, we will have a “garden party” where we will harvest testimonies of the fruit God has produced in us. Will you join us at the garden each Sunday?
“The Power of Seeds: Preparing the Soil”
Rev. Dr. Mary Miller
Matthew 13:1-9 New International Version (NIV)
The Parable of the Sower
13 That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. 2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. 3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.”
