Sunday Service – 18February2024




Today, according to the Christian Worship Calendar, is the first Sunday of the Lenten or Easter Preparation season.  This is a time when we examine ourselves, seeking to prune the things that no longer serve us so God can grow new life.

The theme for this week is God’s passionate presence.

The selected passages that support the theme are Psalm 25:1-10 • Genesis 9:8-17 • 1 Peter 3:18-22 • Mark 1:9-15   

  • in Psalm 25:1-10, we read about God’s faithfulness and how he actively teaches and leads the humble.
  • In the Genesis passage, Genesis 9:8-17, we see God, using his own initiative, make a covenant with Noah and his descendants.
  • In 1 Peter 3:18-22, the author describes how Jesus suffered and died for humanity.
  • Finally, the Gospel passage (Mark 1:9-15) recounts how God tore the heavens in order to make his presence on earth known.
