Sunday 3/18 - Worship at 11am

This Sunday we hear an ancient story from the book of Numbers. After their escape from slavery in Egypt, the people are afflicted by serpents. The Lord tells Moses to raise up a bronze serpent that people can look to for healing. More than a thousand years later, John's gospel sees Jesus in this story, that he was lifted up on the cross, and that those who look to him are delivered.

This Sunday we will look to Jesus in the words of scripture, in our lives together, and in the bread and wine of Holy Communion, Rev. Will Henkel preaching and presiding.

Look to Jesus for healing; turn to Jesus for life.
