March 17 – Lent II – My body, my choice? We don’t have to settle for so little. Each human body belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:20-21)! He paid by dying and rising to make it His twice over. He is perfecting it after the pattern of His own glorified body. Even on earth and amid adversity, He declares and demonstrates His heavenly kingdom through our bodies. My body, God’s gift! His bidding, my delight!

Welcome to our visitors. We pray all will be spiritually enriched by your visit to this “House of God.”
Here Christ breaks the silence that surrounds mortal man in his sin and death. Here in Christ Jesus we hear
the voice of the Eternal One, and we hear the voice of the Father, and that He loves, that He forgives and
that in the resurrection of Christ, He has made us His Children and has given us victory over death itself.

March 17 "Ba-a-ah" Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler
Strikingly, Jesus refers to his people both as "sheep" and as "gods" (Psalm 82). How does that work? (John 10)
March 24 "Death Doesn't End the Story" Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler
Some accept death as the end; others, as a new beginning. Jesus turned death into a sign that points us to the Author of life. (John 11)
