Sunday February 25
Second Sunday in Lent
9:00 & 10:45 a.m.
Scripture  John 1:1-5,9; John 8:12
Sermon  Finding Hope in the Light of the World
We dive into our Lenten sermon series, seeking resources for hope in the “I am…” sayings of Jesus: this Sunday, I am the Light of the World. Might this be more than a metaphor? What might the light of Christ help us see, recognize, or understand about the world, God, life, one another?
 
To worship online live or recorded: go to www.Christ-Pres.Church and click Watch Worship, then click the service you would like to attend.
 
This is the second Sunday in Lent. For forty days (excluding Sundays) we are invited to take a spiritual journey to the cross and empty tomb. During Lent, the people of God look within to the condition of our own souls, and beyond to how God calls us to live in the world. 
Our 2024 Lenten devotional, A Good Enough Lent is available in the lobby.  Pick up your copy today or find it online at http://tinyurl.com/2p9bryym
 
Coffee service is available after Sunday services.
 
Our Lenten sermon series Finding Hope in Troubles Times, explores resources for hope found in the “I am…” sayings in the gospel of John. Each message is paired with a small group study offered at various times during the week beginning this Sunday.
