 Sermon Series – Encounters with Jesus

Jesus changed the lives of everyone he met.  These were powerful experiences that have a profound impact for us today:  they help explain not only different aspects of Christianity but the deep questions of life itself.  In our new sermon series which begins at the United Service on September 3rd, we will look at what happened when different people met Jesus personally as recorded in John’s Gospel.  Come and join us as we discover how invaluable the lessons from these encounters are for us today.
