Sunday, March 10

Fourth Sunday in Lent

9:00 & 10:45 a.m.

Scripture  John 10:11-16

Sermon  Finding Hope in the Good Shepherd

When Jesus told his followers “I am the good shepherd,” everyone would have known that Psalm 23 and Ezekiel, among others, had made the same claim for God. Even though we live in a time and place without shepherds, there’s something to this image of strength, caring, and courage that still speaks across the centuries (I know my own, and my own know me…)

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 fourth 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 read 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. Anyone can join the small group Sundays at 10:15 a.m. in the adult ed room in the education building.
