2 Corinthians 3:12-4:2

“Before we can become who we really are, we must become conscious of the fact that that person who we think we are, here and now, is at best an imposter and a stranger.” -- Thomas Merton

All of us have been created in the image of God, and we all fall short of truly reflecting the divine within. The journey to self-awareness leads us deeper into our life of faith because the more we know ourselves, the more we see God's face in the mirror.

Revelation 21:1-6

The Rev. Jeff Jaynes will preach all three services on Sunday morning. As he digs into these verses, we will discover together that the current pain of the world was not part of God's original plan...that God has tried to restore that plan several times throughout history...and that John's vision in Revelation is that the plan is going to come to fruition. The good news is that God has moved into the neighborhood and is calling us to help with construction

Revelation 7:9–17

During the season of Eastertide, we'll focus on the power of resurrection and eternal life with Christ through a conversation about "the last word." The book of Revelation has long been the place Christians go for answers about the end times. We'll spend 6 weeks walking through the beautiful and terrifying images of this vision John has. At the end of 6 weeks, you probably won't have the answers to the questions you asked, but perhaps you'll discover better questions and deeper insights along the way.

Luke 22:63-71; 23:32-38

Has the realization ever struck you—you have participated in many systems and situations that cause others pain? You are not to blame for the harm and yet you might have benefited from the harm. So, are you culpable? And, if you feel the weight of the trespass, how do you receive forgiveness? This Sunday, we'll look at the cross through the eyes of a Roman soldier who was just doing his job. We'll reach for grace poured out to all, even us, when we can't imagine we need it.

Matthew 6:7-15
As we travel the journey to the cross, we hear the call to be "poured out." This is the prerequisite motion for forgiveness -- a willingness to be emptied. On Sunday, we'll enter Mary's, mother of Jesus, willingness to be emptied. The depth of forgiveness she offered is astounding. Let's learn from Mary. Her tears, poured out, make a way for us to approach the throne of grace. As you prepare for worship, take a listen to this song. The band is getting it ready for us at the 9:40 service.
