There are some things that sound like a bad idea. Take fishing in the middle of a lake during the middle of the day with a net. That probably won’t work.

This Sunday come fishing with Jesus.
When Church Goers Attack – might be a good title for a B movie. Most of the time people in a congregation are happy to be there. Violence is never on the agenda in our Sunday Morning bulletin, yet on that fateful Saturday in Nazareth, someone was almost thrown off a cliff. What we talked about as an emotional moment last Sunday goes terribly wrong in just a few moments. What happened?! Join us for worship this Sunday as we sort out the violent reaction to Jesus’ sermon.
Changing water to blood may not be as fun as making a few hundred gallons of wine at a wedding, but the miracle we know as the first plague of Egypt was a powerful miracle of judgment on Pharaoh and his unbelieving nation.

We’ll answer these questions this Sunday.
