Sunday Worship Preview - October 28

Sunday, October 28 - (9:00 & 10:30 Services) & Wednesday, October 31 (6:30 P.M. Casual Service @ Crossroads, 2095 Fair Avenue)

Features - Season After Pentecost & Introduction of Confirmation Class

Sermon - "Following Jesus on the Way"

Scripture - Mark 10:35-45

Theme - In putting two stories back to back, the gospel writer, Mark is making a contrast between two views of who people believed Jesus to be. The first story involves James & John who had very political/militaristic views of Jesus. The story of Bartimaeus offers us a better view of who Jesus us and what it means for us to follow him on the way.
