August 18, 2019 • Pastor Josh Kee

Dear church family, This week we will look at the important, yet sensitive, issue of sexuality. We want you to be aware that the nature of this week's sermon may not be appropriate for younger children. Depending on the discussions you have had with your children, we want you to be able to make arrangements that are best for your children and your family. Some of the specific issues that will be addressed in the message are: God's design for sex, thinking biblically about homosexuality and gender identity, relating with the LGBTQ community, and how the church and parents can help the next generation(s) embrace the joy and freedom of God-glorifying sexuality. We want to strongly encourage everyone, but particularly older students, young adults, and parents/ grandparents of young children, to attend and engage in this important issue. We will have a discussion led by Pastor Phil during second hour in the Living Room for anyone interested in going a little further. Hope to see you Sunday. Josh Kee Pastor of Worship and Discipleship Clearwater Community Church ISSUES Sermon Series // “Sexuality” Passages: Genesis 1-2; Ephesians 5:22-33; 1 Corinthians 6:9-20 Summary: I.

Biblical Clarity: Gender Roles • August 11, 2019 • Pastor Phil Burggraff

Theme: Biblical Clarity: Gender Roles Creation in Genesis 1 and 2: God created humans male and female in his own image with distinct and complementary roles to carry out in their mandate to rule over the earth. Fall and Sin in Genesis 3: The fall epitomized creation’s reversal of God’s established roles for humanity and led to severe consequences. Salvation: The work of Christ uniquely enables believers to fulfill their roles in submission to him. Practical Matters within the church: What about singleness? (1 Cor. 7) Gender Roles in the Church? Application Questions: • From the creation story, what roles did God assign to humans in general (Gen. 1:26–28) and what roles did he specify uniquely for men and women (Gen. 2:15–25)? • How has humanity, including us as sinners, rejected God’s established roles for men and women? In what ways today do we see abuses in this area? • What challenges do you and I as followers of Christ face in living out the biblical roles that God established for men and women? • Do gender roles apply to the church? How do we bring together the teachings of Gal. 3:26–29 and passages like 1 Cor. 14:34–35 and 1 Tim. 2:11–15?
