Good morning Journey South Bay!

#1) If you want to really know what a person is like, travel with them. After you have been with them 24/7 over a number of days, you discover their character, their habits, weaknesses, and strengths. What if you could do that with Jesus? This Sunday you are invited to an 11 week Journey with Jesus as we read through the entire Gospel of Mark together. You will be able to see Jesus in all kinds of different situations as you travel with Him from His baptism to His resurrection. And what you will find is not only an amazing, perfect individual that you are irresistibly drawn to, but you will also find that your life will be changed from being with him.

How will we make this journey together? Three ways: (1) A daily devotional guide, (2) Sunday sermons, and (3) a small group to interact with over the material. This Sunday we will give everyone a free 104 page devotional guide through the book of Mark that we have put together. Your readings will begin Monday, January 27th. There will also be small group opportunities to sign up for after service and I will kick off the series with a brief overview of our trip through Mark and what we will need to do to get the most out of it. I can’t wait to get started! Don’t miss the boat (-: See you Sunday! 9 or 10:45 services.

#2) Thought for the Day: You may not understand why you are going through what you are going through, but know that God will work it for good. “Jesus replied, ‘You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” John 13:7

Yours for the kingdom,

Pastor Jim
