This Sunday at Immanuel: Chapter 23: Jesus’ Ministry Begins
Chapter 23 of The Story covers the opening chapters of the 4 Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John). This Sunday we will use Mark’s gospel to hear the stories of Jesus’ first days of ministry in Galilee. Jesus announces in word and deed that the Kingdom of God has arrived. This is the good news! But he was not the kind of king many were expecting. Read Mark 1-3 in preparation for this Sunday’s message. Our service will include a celebration of the Lord’s Supper which is our opportunity to renew our commitment to Jesus as Lord and King.
