CURRENT SERMON SERIES

Journey through the Book of Mark
We continue with a study of the Gospel of Mark that will take us to Easter Sunday. Of all four gospel books in the New Testament, Mark is probably the one that is least often studied. This account of the life of Jesus, originally written primarily to Gentile believers living in Rome in the middle of the first century AD, shows Him primarily as a suffering servant.

… Jesus’ Passion
April 19, Good Friday | Mark 15
It is the last day of his life, but Jesus still serves. Though He is King, he serves because of the purpose of his mission and his great love for us. He serves by not defending himself and by enduring the suffering of the crucifixion for us.

April 21, Easter | Mark 16
The resurrection. An ordinary day begins with ordinary routines of when a loved one has died. There is no hint of the unexpected. But Jesus is not there. He has risen! We need not fear when life throws the unexpected our way. He is risen, don’t be afraid, he goes ahead of us.
