Church Announcements

  • The Great Lent
    • Week 4 of Lent, the church reads from John 4:1-42 : when our Lord Jesus Christ travels far to meet the Samaritan Woman. She lived a sinful life but our Lord still loves her. And after she spoke to Christ at the well, she saw that He is the Savior and preached it to her nation. This is a reminder during Lent that Christ has come for all the people in the world, especially sinners like us. With repentance and confession, we too can be a bright light like the Samaritan Woman.
    • Daily Commentary for Week 4 of the Great Lent
