MARK: First Supper, Last Communion

This Sunday we’ll be looking at Mark’s record of Christ’s last meal with His disciples. It’s hard to imagine the thoughts that must have been flooding Jesus’ mind as He shared these precious moments with His friends. And yet, there’s not a hint of self-centeredness. No veiled attempts for pity, consolation, or even some sort […]

This Sunday we’ll be looking at a confrontation in Mark 12:13-27 between the religious leaders of the first century & Jesus.

MARK: Real Authority

This week we’re back in our study of the Gospel of Mark; and we’ll be talking about the nature of real authority. In our passage, once again Jesus goes head-to-head with the religious elite of His day, and guess who wins? Not only is the text humorous, but it also teaches us some valuable truths […]

Living Thankful Lives

Today we’re concluding our teaching series on God’s Sabbath Rest; and, we’ll be talking about what it means to live lives that are thankful.
