Worship Focus for March 17
Rev. Dr. Jim Bennett, preaching

In this second Sunday in Lent we continue to follow Jesus as he heads toward Jerusalem knowing the fate that awaited him. What was it like as Jesus made this journey toward Jerusalem? Our journey isn’t always easy either, and perhaps we are especially aware of these challenges during the season of Lent, when we are called to reflect on our faith. This Sunday we’ll think about what it means to encounter obstacles and how Jesus’ own sojourn might be a guide for us.

I look forward to seeing you at one of our three services (7:50 a.m., 10 a.m. or 5 p.m.). Regardless of which service you attend, I hope you will be present at the Annual Meeting, which takes place in the Sanctuary immediately after the 10 a.m. service.

―Eugene H. Peterson, The Jesus Way
