City On A Hill

Salt Of The Earth

City on a Hill part eight - Church Hill • August 5, 2018 • Shane Schlesman

Salt has two primary functions -- to preserve and to add flavor.

Navy Hill

Justice is at the very heart of God • June 24, 2018 • Jeremy Woltz

We see from Navy Hill's history the tragedy of injustice. The darkness of wrongs committed against one group of neighbors has ripple effects throughout a community and for many years. Fortunately, penetrating the darkness with the light of Jesus' love for all can have an even greater ripple effect. God calls us to be instruments of justice in Richmond and beyond. But, it requires personal sacrifice. Pastor Jeremy Woltz explains further and illustrates with specific examples of the life we are to lead in impacting our community. Luke 4:16-21 and Isaiah 58:6-12 provide inspiration for the future of Navy Hill... a future we can all have a hand in setting right. #sermon #series #CityOnAHill #Richmond #Virginia #RVA #injustice #justice #race #discrimination #history #future #present #Jesus #love #service #sacrifice #volunteer #community #neighbors
