March Sermon Series Leading up to Easter
During the month of March, join Pastor John for a 4-part sermon
series titled “Catch and Release.” Taking seriously these 40 days
(minus Sundays) as a time to prepare for the Great Easter Celebration,
the series will encourage worshippers to Catch and Release:
– The Power of Pain (Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness)
– The Power of Darkness (Nicodemus coming to Jesus at night)
– The Power of Death (Raising of Lazarus from the dead)
– The Power of Light (Ephesians 5: 8-14, “Once you were darkness,
but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light.”)
