Sermon Series: The Gospel of Mark

Join us as we work through the Gospel of Mark, verse by verse. Each verse will be read throughout the year. We will talk about the themes as they are presented in Mark’s Gospel. Typically, we go through each of the Gospels, but we order the passages according to the liturgical year. This year, we will present the readings in the order Mark presents them.
