It never feels right when somebody makes a mistake with our name, whether they call us by someone else's name or mispronounce ours. Christians are told to baptize Jesus' followers "in the name of the Father...." What's that about? We explore the deep significance of that Sunday, with worship starting at 10:45 am.
What does it mean to follow Jesus? And how does it happen? And what does Jesus enjoy about the process? We will explore this together Sunday, October 17, with the livestream beginning at 10:45 am.
Jesus said, “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” (John 20:21) I bet the disciples wondered: but where are we going? Jesus clear call is to go the ends of the earth with the good news of God's love and Jesus' resurrection from the dead. But is that the only place his followers are to go?
