OUR MESSAGE: "Jesus: Friend of Sinners" Many people have the perception that Jesus only cares or wants to be close to people who have their act together and are somehow nearly perfect. The reality is that the Gospels portray Jesus as someone who was a "friend of sinners." This is seen in today's story as Jesus has dinner with the tax collector Matthew and even calls him to be one of his disciples.
READINGS - Matthew 9: 9-13, Romans 3: 21-31
MID-WEEK LENTEN SERVICES, WEDNESDAY'S, 7:00 P.M. We will gather with others at Hope for a short worship experience featuring some of the best of our traditional and contemporary worship hymns and songs, special elements, and inspiring messages to take us deeper into Jesus' amazing love.
SOUP SUPPER - Come early at 6 p.m. on Wednesdays for an informal meal of a variety of soups, bread, and salad in the Fellowship Hall. A great way to connect! This next Wednesday our Soup Supper Host Group is the Hope School PTH (Parents and Teachers of Hope).
