This coming Sunday we begin a Lenten sermon series called “Here’s Your Sign.” You might remember a comedian by the name of Bill Engvall who became famous with this punchline. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be exploring the “Book of Signs” known as the Gospel of John. In the first section of John, there are seven signs that point us to the identity of Jesus, and much like any sign that you might see on the side of the road, or billboard you might see in the distance, these signs point to something beyond themselves – they point us to the cross.

 In this first week, we’ll look at John 2:1-11 where Jesus turns water into wine at a wedding in Cana. What concern is that to Jesus? Why would he intervene? And what does it all have to do with the cross? Jesus answers this for us at the end of the telling of this story – it reveals His Glory, and his disciples believed in Him.

 Our Ash Wednesday Service is at 7:00pm.

We’ve printed some more copies of the “Whose Sign is it Anyway” devotional that will guide us during this season of Lent. If you weren’t able to get one this past week, I invite you to pick one up on Sunday, or come by the office, so that we might journey together toward the cross. While we all rejoice on Easter morning at the wonder of the resurrection, we can’t get there without first going to the cross, the ultimate sign of our faith.

Join us each Sunday in person or online at either 9am (traditional) or 11:15am (contemporary).  We will also have BOTH services streaming live.
