This week we will finish up Mark 10. We’ve been walking with Jesus towards Jerusalem for the the last time and we’ve met a Rich Young Man who asked Jesus, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” Last week we saw James and John ask Jesus if they could sit at his right and left hand when he is in glory.

This week, we meet a final person who also has a question for Jesus. He is a blind man named Bartimaeus. But Bartimaeus comes to Jesus in a much different way then the others we’ve seen.

Read Mark 10:46-52 and see if you can discover the difference.

Looking forward to Sunday!


Grace and peace,

Remember to SPRING FORWARD this Saturday night! That means it will feel like we’re starting church at 8:00 am– but, really, it is 9:00am.Spring_forward_1

I know that you will be tempted to skip because of losing an hour of sleep… but we are looking at a great passage on Sunday (okay, they’re all great– but this week is a very cool story). We’ll talk about Mark 10:17-31. It’s the story of an encounter between a Rich Young Ruler and Jesus.

So go to bed early on Saturday night and I’ll see you bright and early on Sunday!


Grace and peace,

This week we continue our study of the Gospel of Mark by looking at Mark 10:1-12. The heading in my Bible describes this passage as a “Teaching About Divorce”. What we will discover is that it is actually “A Teaching About Marriage”.

This is a difficult and sensitive topic because divorce has touched most of our lives in one way or another. Jesus deals with the topic head-on and the way he handles it may surprise you.

Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,

PS– Several of you have helped out by bringing in coffee for us to brew… I was just at the church and discovered that we are on the last big blue container. If you can, please help us re-stock the coffee coffers!
