Advent Sermon Series 2013: MESSIAH on a MISSION
As Jesus grew up in the small town of Nazareth his mission became clear. He knew he was God’s unique Son, the Messiah, sent to rescue Israel and the world. Those around Jesus celebrated, wondered, but also doubted and struggled to believe that the long-awaited Messiah was also a carpenter working in the back woods of Israel. Join us Sunday mornings at 10am for Messiah on a Mission as we grapple with the scope and power of Jesus’ mission and bring to God our own doubts and wonders.
1 JOHN: Solid Faith in an Uncertain World
(New Sermon Series starts 10:00 am January 5, 2014)
In a world of competing values and truth claims, God calls us to cling to the certainties he has revealed to us about himself. Near the end of his life, the apostle John wrote this passionate letter encouraging Christians to hold to what they know is true, walk in the light, love one another, resist sin, and feel assured in the good standing they have before God because of Christ. Join us this winter as we dig into 1 John and reflect on what God has revealed to us in this important little book.
