Our Summer Sermon Series...
How many times do we read scripture and read the words of Jesus and think to ourselves, "why did Jesus say that?" or "that is such a hard thing to understand/follow." For 10 Sundays this summer, we are going to explore sayings just like that. It isn't that we really wish Jesus hadn't of said those things (mostly), it is more that we often times at first glance don't understand why he said what he said.
The hope in the series is that by the end of each Sunday morning, even though our initial thought in reading Jesus' words might be, "come on Jesus, that is way to difficult," by the end we will say, "I get it, for me to continue to grow in my discipleship, I understand, let's go!"
The Mission of Covenant United Methodist Church:

SERVING others with the love of Jesus.
“Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11: 28-29)
