Preaching Series April 2023

April opens by leading us directly into Holy Week and then Easter. In the Easter season, our messages will focus on enacting Christ’s teachings and words (which we looked at in Lent). May we be emboldened by the Resurrection to go and proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ into this world
