Please Join Us! - This Sunday, October 8th, Pastor John shares a message entitled, Why?which is part 2 of the series, Big Questions - Real Answers. Why, if Jesus could walk on water? Why, if he could heal those with leprosy and restore the sight of the blind? Why if he could calm the storm and cast out a demon? Why if he raised someone from the dead could he not escape those who came to arrest him? The scriptures say that he could have called upon the help of thousands of angels, but he didn't - why? He never said, "Stop!" when they stripped him, beat him beyond recognition, and finally drove nails into his hands and feet - why? Discover this Sunday the love, hope and future behind the why.
