Sermon Series for September: “TELL ME THE STORIES OF JESUS!”
“Everyone loves a good story” it’s said, and I believe it’s true. As a young child did you sit on your parent’s knee listening to a familiar bedtime story? Do you like curling up on the couch to read a favorite novel? As you get into a great story it almost takes you to a different place as you meet a cast of characters and read of their exploits. During September and October we will have a sermon series called, “Tell Me the Stories of Jesus!” Each week the Gospel lesson will bring us a great story from the life of our Savior and a precious promise for us to keep close to our hearts. Please join us for worship each week as we hear the stories of Jesus.

21st Sunday after Pentecost
AS WE WORSHIP, we continue the sermon series, “Tell Me the Stories of Jesus”. Today’s Gospel, Mark 10:23-31 continues the story we heard last Sunday. A rich young man has turned away from Jesus sadly unwilling to follow him because of his wealth. Jesus tells his disciples how difficult it is for anyone to be saved but assures them, “With man it is impossible but not with God. For all things are possible with God.”
