2021 SERMON/WORSHIP SERIES: ROUTE 66 : This series is an epic, one-year road trip through the Bible. Route 66 was originally a highway that became one of the most famous roads in the United States. It ran from Chicago to Santa Monica, California from 1926 until 1985. For many years it served as the primary route for those who were migrating west looking for a better life. In a similar way, our journey through the 66 books of the Bible is the route to a better life. More than that, to life itself because it leads us to Jesus Christ. 48 of the most important stops on the way through the Bible have already been mapped out. We won’t have much time to spend in any one place. We have places to go and people to meet.
SUNDAY MORNING ADULT BIBLE STUDY: A video-based study titled- “Cultures in Conflict”. This study will bring the Bible to life as we learn from Scripture how to live in a culture where the worldview conflicts with Christianity. This study meets Sunday mornings in the fellowship hall from 9:30-10:30.
SUNDAY SCHOOL: Today we will learn about Jesus Healing at Bethesda from John 5:1-17 in AD 31. For 38 years, a paralyzed man has lain by the pool of Bethesda, hoping to enter it and receive healing. Jesus asks if he desires healing and then tells the man to take up his bed and walk. When the Jews see the man carrying his bed on the Sabbath, they question who told him to do this, but the man doesn't know who Jesus is. After encountering Jesus at the temple, the man reports back to the Jewish leaders, who seek to kill Jesus. Salvation comes from Christ alone. Jesus heals our bodies and heals our souls. He is the Christ!
Family challenge: Race from one place to another without using your legs. Laugh
together. Discuss how hard it is to move without legs, but it is impossible to get into
heaven without Jesus.
