The Journey, A New Series of Messages: On March 6, we start a new series of messages that will lead us up to Easter. Called The Journey the series will focus on the Christian life as a journey through this world to the next. The children will be pursuing the same theme in their Kids’ Up classes in parallel with the sermon series. Both the sermon series and Kid’s Up will be using The Pilgrim’s Progress as a companion book. Your experience of this series will be enriched if you read The Pilgrim’s Progress and read (or have your children read) Little Pilgrims Progress. Readings will be suggested each week, and a Take it Home curriculum will be available for parents so they can interact with their children about what they are learning together. Copies of Little Children’s Progress can be purchased from Shelley, Our Children’s Director, for $10 in the Fellowship Hall after the service. The Adult version can be purchased online either in the original English or in modern English. The modern English version we recommend is called The Pilgrim's Progress: A Readable Modern-Day Version revised by Alan Vermilye. Join in the journey!
