Prayer for the Week
Give us, O Lord,
Steadfast hearts, which no unworthy thought can drag downward,
Unconquered hearts, which no tribulation can wear out,
Upright hearts, which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside.
Bestow upon us also, O Lord our God,
Understanding to know You, diligence to seek You, wisdom to find You,
And a faithfulness that may finally embrace You;
Through Jesus Christ our lord.
Amen.
Sermon Series
Jesus Followers
There is a big difference being a believer in Jesus and being a follower of Jesus. One is demonstrated by intellect and the other is demonstrated by action. The gospel is very clear that Jesus does not expect us just to think rightly about Him, but also to live rightly because of Him. To be a disciple of Christ is to actually do what He has called us to do. Are you a Jesus follower?

Memory Verse
Mark 2:5
When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Child, your sins are forgiven!”
