Worship Series

March Sermon Series:

The first Sunday in Lent is March 10. Daylight savings time begins that day, and it will be the first Sunday for our Lenten worship series based on the book, “The God We Can Know,” by Rob Fuquay. Each week we will be looking at one of the “I Am” statements Jesus made in the Gospel of John. These statements will take us up through Easter. Please plan to join us as we learn about Jesus through these profound declarations about himself. You can find the foundational Scriptures and weekly themes below for the month of March. Invite and bring someone with you to worship as we explore the “I Am” sayings of Jesus.

March 10: Foundational Scripture: Exodus 3:1-15; Theme: Knowing the Great “I Am”

March 17: Foundational Scripture: John 6:27-59: Theme: I Am the Bread of Life

March 24: Foundational Scripture: John 72-14; 8:12; Theme: I Am the Light of the World

March 31: Foundational Scripture: John 10:1-10; Theme: I Am the Good Shepherd

Come as you are to worship!
