New Year, New Worship Series
Eyes wide open, we step into this new year with an invitation to “come and see.” Using John’s gospel as our guide, this is an opportunity for each of us to experience Jesus for ourselves. Over the course of the coming two months, we’ll follow where Jesus leads, we’ll see the signs Jesus offers, we’ll listen as Jesus teaches and we’ll come ever closer to knowing the God in whom we believe.
Just as Jesus invited his followers to “come and see,” we too are invited along for this exploration. An adventure awaits that will uncover important revelations about the ‘Word made flesh’ who has come to deliver grace and truth with abundance. And we’ve already packed the suitcase with everything we’ll need along the way. The only thing missing is you. Join us Sundays in January and February.
