Wilderness Wonderings on the Way of Love

2/14/2018 – 3/30/2018

The 40 days of Lent begin this year on Valentine’s Day, Wednesday February 14, and are followed with Easter on April Fool’s Day, Sunday April 1. This year, we will journey together wandering in our own Lenten wilderness as we follow Jesus from his baptism, into the desert and up to Jerusalem to face his death. As we do so, we will wonder about the foolishness of following the way of Christ’s love.

Questions for God

1/7/2018 – 2/11/2018

Hey God! We’ve Got Questions! This sermon series “Questions for God” is inspired by some hard questions that have literally come “out of the mouths of babes.” We will take time to reflect on who we are, where we have been and where God is calling us to go.

Watch the preview (c) Rethink Church:

January 7 – Why is it that God chose Jesus to be born into a poor family? – Matthew 25:31-45
January 14 – Can God change people’s minds about how they act? – Matthew 3:13-17
January 21 – Did Jesus Really Make Fishers of People? – Mark 1:14-20
January 28 – Does God have a purpose for my life? – John 1:29-42
February 4 – Can God help my brother, sister, friend or loved one? – Mark 1:21-28
February 11 – Did you really send Jesus to earth to die for our sins? – Mark 9:2-10, 10:32-34, 10:45
