New Worship Series Begins on March 6
Most of us have at some point felt like a nobody – insignificant, invisible, worthless. The Gospel of Luke is a first-century portrait of Jesus with a particular focus on his ministry with those who were considered nobodies. For Lent, join us as we read through the Gospel of Luke together. Each week, we’ll turn our attention to specific stories that illustrate Jesus’ concern for those who were marginalized by society, and as we do, we’ll hear his word for our lives today. Click the scripture reading below to read along with us. This Sermon Series begins on March 6th, and there will be daily readings until April 23rd. To read along, visit our website below to find the daily readings.
An open-hearted church for curious minded people
