New Sermon Series…Prayer and Fasting (Days 6, 7, 8)

The Disturbing Presence of Jesus

This Sunday Pastor Ray begins a new sermon series in the Auditorium called Counter Culture. The first message of his 4-week series is called The Disturbing Presence of Jesus. Ray will take us to Acts chapter 4 where we read about a disturbance involving Peter and John.
Pastor Shaun wraps up his 2-week series (Real Discipleship) in the Chapel with a message titled Real Discipleship: Here and Now.
The Scripture text that Shaun will have us look at is found in Luke’s gospel, chapter 19. We’ll look at misunderstandings we have about real discipleship and what it looks like here and now.
