Journeying with John

Signs of Faith, Part Eleven
June 18 – July 23, 2017

At Artisan, we’ve been studying the book of John in 4-5 week chunks for a few years. We resume this piece by piece study of John’s Gospel in June!

Message line-up:

If the World Hates You (Pt. 2)

Guest Sermon: Denis Johnson - Hope While Jesus is Absent
Denis Johnson
Listen

Shortly before Jesus would be arrested and crucified, he reiterated to his disciples that he would be physically absent from them.  Despite this confusing and devastating news, John 16 records Jesus’ encouragement to the disciples as he promised of the Spirit, proclaimed the efficacy of prayer and predicted the future hope for victory. 

(John 16)
