Second Sunday in Lent
Pastor Al’s sermon title this week is “Good News Amphitheatre: Sharing God’s Story”
Beginning this Sunday, March 5 and every Sunday after, we will have the opportunity to ask questions or respond to the sermon. Meet downstairs in the courtyard at 11:45. This should not last longer than 30 minutes and childcare will be provided.
Thus far, Pastor Al has preached on the following as part of the Discipleship series:
- A New Old Thing: Renewed Faith Amid I-Don’t-Know
- Discipleship Road: Becoming More Like Jesus
- In the Garden of Devotion: Cultivating a Life of Worship
- Signposts: Heeding the Ways of Wisdom
- Church Outlook: Thoughts on Christian Community
- Church on the Hill: Shining a Different Light
- Caverns of the Holy: From Character to Conduct
- Squalor Valley: The Social Dimension of Holiness
Take time to think, not just about this Sunday’s sermon, but the whole series thus far, and come with any comments or questions to this week’s Second Look.
Note that all of the Sunday sermons are now on the church website.
