Journeying with Jesus

2019 Preaching Schedule through Pentecost - a Narrative Lectionary
Let us together follow the one who is called, Immanuel - God with us.
Over the course of the next few months we will follow the story of Jesus from the Gospel of Matthew, his birth to baptism; from the backcountry to the holy city; from his triumphal entry to his coronation by crucifixion; from his death to resurrection; from his going up to heaven unto his sending the Holy Spirit to the church. I hope that you join us as we learn of Jesus who makes God known and who invites us to become who God created us to be! The preaching passages below.
