10:45 Traditional Worship

Scripture  John 4 (selected verses)

Sermon  Make Peace with the Past

We continue our series on Discovering the Life Abundant in the gospel of John with the remarkable conversation between Jesus and an unnamed Samaritan woman at a well. Her gender and cultural/religious background make this not only an unlikely but nearly unprecedented encounter, yet the discussion flows from deeply personal to theologically rich. It begins with Jesus’ offer of “living water,” and there is so much more…

Our Sunday sermon series in Lent is Discovering the Life Abundant, a journey through the gospel of John, paired with our small group study. John was called “the spiritual gospel” by a leader of the early church, written “that you may believe Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing, you may have life in his name” (John 20:31). We’ll listen to John and to our own lives, seeking the abundant life Christ came to share (John 10:10).
