What It Means To Follow Jesus

| June 19, 2022

This summer, we're walking through the book of Mark and this week, we get to meet the Twelve - those faithful followers of Jesus who became apostles and eventually, martyrs. These were rare men of God, whose names are known and respected two thousand years later. We will learn from them what it looks like to take the gospel seriously and to follow wholeheartedly.

How Not To Take A Day Off

| June 12, 2022

You've had this experience, I'm sure. You are really looking forward to your next day off. You can hardly wait for it. You dream about all the things you plan to do with it. You will sleep late, eat bacon, lay on the beach, take five naps, run through strawberry fields, dine on a rooftop at sunset. You have it all figured out. Then the day arrives, and you blow it by sleeping till noon and spending the day scrolling social media feeds. This week, Mark wants to give us a better vision for a day off, by walking us into Jesus' teaching on Sabbath. I'll be ready to learn with you from the One who gave us the incredible gift of Sabbath. ~ Carolyn

It begins like fireworks, with several explosions of supernatural ministry in chapter one. That's where we begin on Sunday. Here are two great ways to get ready for this summer study: First, watch the Bible Project's ten-minute overview of Mark here. Then, read the gospel of Mark out loud in one sitting.
