Series Information

Have you ever read the words of Jesus and thought, “I get it; I know what he’s saying,” only to second guess yourself as you acknowledge, “At least, I think I do…?” Perhaps your confidence unravels further, “Well, maybe I don’t…” and you ultimately wonder, “What does he mean?” You’re not alone! Let’s be honest, at times, the parables and teachings of Jesus are loaded. Join us for the next few weeks as we go beneath the surface in search of what Jesus’ words in the Gospel of Matthew might have to say to us today.

Sermon Notes

You can add your own personal sermon notes along the way. When you're finished, you'll be able to email or download your notes.
