Lent 2015

Journeying With John (aka Signs of Faith Part Seven)
February 15 – April 3, 2015

This year during Lent, we will seek to continue to be shaped by the words of scripture as we resume “section hiking” through the Gospel of John, both in Sunday sermons and in our devotional reading at home and in small groups.
