THE GOSPEL OF JOHN | Starts TODAY, 9:30am | Meeting Room 1 & 2 | No one tells the story of Jesus like John. He recounts a miracle at a wedding and a man rising from the dead. He remembers standing at the foot of the cross and hearing his teacher’s last words. He knew Jesus as teacher, as Son of God, as Word-become-flesh, as friend. Join us Sunday mornings for a new look at the fourth Gospel—at John’s story of Jesus.
