Messages on Gospel of John


On this Second Sunday of Easter, we revisit the story of “Doubting Thomas.” As Pastor Wayne explores John 20:19-31, he will share something there for doubters, for true believers, and for everyone in between.  You see, Thomas’ story is our story, too.

Our Scriptures this morning from Exodus 17:1-7 and John 4:5-42 have to do with water. In Exodus, the water is necessary for life. In John, the water is necessary for living life abundantly. The water is living water that goes beyond the need for sustenance. This morning, we don’t offer a recording of the sermon. Because of the Coronavirus scare, we offer a video of the modified Morning Prayer and Praise service that we conducted this morning with no congregation.…
