Sunday's Coming ~ March 15, 2015

SUNDAY'S COMING Follow VertThis Sunday, just as the disciples are wrapping their minds around Jesus giving them authority to heal the sick, raise the the dead, cleanse lepers, and cast out demons -- just when this is going to look like a lot of fun, Jesus lays out the cost for following.

Ouch. Betrayal by family, rejection by the community, beatings, and yes, even death.

Very few among us will ever experience that kind of cost in following Jesus.  So, what does it mean for us?  What is Jesus asking of us as we hear these verses?  Lean in with me to this amazing text. Let's grow together.

And there's more to our day! At the 8:45 service, we'll celebrate the baptism of Joslyn Weber.  At the 11:00 service we'll hear stories of Spring Break.

With you for the King!

~ Pastor Jon

Our Sunday Morning services start at 8:45 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

Children and Youth Sunday School will meet between services, 10:00-10:50 a.m.

Children and Worship Children ages 5 through 1st grade will be dismissed during the service and can be picked up after church in the Kid’s Area.

Our Adult Sunday School Opportunities this week are:

  • The Life You Have Always Wanted (Adult Rooms 3&4)
    • This weeks topic: Fasting.  Ever wonder why Jesus expects his followers to fast at different times but how few people today actually do this? Come out to Adult Rooms 3-4 to learn about this practice, why it can be a great blessing to your spiritual life, and how you could take steps to incorporate this into your life.
  • Questions of Life (Fellowship Hall)
    • This weeks topic: Spring Service Project Sharing. This Sunday we are blessed to hear reports and sharing from students and adult leaders who have return from various spring service projects.  Plan to come to the Fellowship Hall to hear how God is at work in these places and in these participants.  You will be blessed.
  • Sunday School Guide (Adult Room 1)
