New Sermon Series Following the Transfiguration, Jesus began His journey towards Jerusalem. This journey would ultimately lead Jesus to the cross, that place of suffering and pain where He took the sins of the world upon His shoulders and died in our place so that we might live with Him forever. Along the way, Jesus continued to teach and preach on what it truly means to follow Him. Join us in worship throughout the season of Lent as we explore Jesus’ last teachings about discipleship and how we can better follow Him today.
