Being a Disciple

In order to be his disciple, we must follow Jesus. In addition to following him, Jesus informed his disciples that there are other requirements to being a disciple. In Mark 8:34 we read, “Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: ‘If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.’ ”

News & Events

Be Bold

Ash Wednesday began our season of Lent. Be bold in your Lenten discipline. Take this time to make a lifelong change in adding a holy habit or destroying a bad practice. I was able to impose ashes on four humans and one dog during the daytime hours and about 20 people during our 1/2 hour (okay, 32 minutes) worship service. God strengthen you and keep you as you struggle with your Lent.

In the name of God,

Pastor Curtis.
