Psalm 107:1-9, 19; Numbers 21:4-9; John 3:14-21
“Look on Jesus” - Sermon Text: John 3:14 - Rev. Shayne Jonker
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him would have eternal life.” Jesus foretells His own death on the cross and its benefits. He is the serpent on the wood, lifted up for the life of the world. All who look on Him through the eyes of faith have eternal life.

“What God Doesn’t Remember” - Sermon Text: Jeremiah 31:34b - Rev. Paul Shoemaker
We love to remember stories about fun times, joyous occasions. God also remembers how we are His beloved children, forgiven because of Jesus’ sacrificial death and glorious resurrection. The prophet Jeremiah reminds us that God chooses to not remember our sins. Join us as we talk about what God doesn’t remember.
March 28, 2021 – Palm Sunday
Psalm 118:19-29; Zechariah 9:9-12; Mark 15:1-47
“Crucify the King” - Sermon Text: Mark 15:6-20 - Rev. William Mueller
Palm Sunday brings such a day of emotion: the triumphal entry, the rejoicing crowd, the humble King – all this will be poured into the anguish of Good Friday. Yet what was Jesus’ driving theme behind all of this? Why does Scripture give us such detail? It’s because He has done this for us!
