Filmed on location in the Middle East, the Five Faith Lessons (DVD series) will transform your understanding of God and challenge you to be a true follower of Jesus.

The group will meet on Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. starting February 24 and finishing March 24, 2015.

Discovery Guide books are available for $9.99—Call the church office to place your order.

SIMON OF CYRENE

Francis Greenwood Peabody writes “this Simon, the Cyrenian, was just a plain man, coming into town on his own business, and meeting at the gate this turbulent group surging out toward the place of crucifixion, the malefactor in their midst. Suddenly Simon finds himself turned about in his own journey, swept back by the crowd with the cross of another man on his soldier, and the humiliation forced upon him which there seemed nor reason for him to bear…And yet, how certain it is that this man of Cyrene came to look back on this interruption of his journey as the one thing he would not have missed. When others were remembering the wonderful career of Jesus, how often he must have said: “Yes, but I once had the unapproached privilege of bearing his cross for him…It seemed a grievous burden, but it has become my crowning joy. I did not know then, but I know now, that my day of humiliation was my day of highest blessedness.”
