What is the good news of Jesus? Jesus came proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom of God. In Mark 1:15, Jesus says, “The time has come. The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!” Each week, we will study a passage of Mark asking together, “What good news does this passage proclaim?” We are good news people; we have good news to tell.

  • "Authority"

    October 18, 2020

    Mark 1:21-34

    Rev. Katie Fowler

    “The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching—and with authority! He even gives orders to impure spirits and they obey him.” ‭‭Mark‬ ‭1:27‬ ‭‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ The work of restoration, of healing our world and our lives and restoring shalom, is centered in Jesus. Jesus is Lord. The True King. Jesus is the one who speaks with authority, who acts with authority. Christ is “far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.” -(‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1:21‬)‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ As we are sent into the world, we proclaim the good news, “Jesus is Lord.”

    Mark 2:18-22

    Guest Preacher Isaac Olivarez

    The Kingdom of God has made a personal appearance in Jesus! Jesus Himself is both the evidence that the Old Covenant has been fulfilled, and the guarantee that the reality foreshadowed by the wedding, the new cloth, and the new wine will be experienced at the appropriate time, set by the Father.

  • "The King Is Here"

    November 22, 2020

    Mark 2:23-3:6

    Pastor Chuck Fowler

    Jesus is King. This is both a comfort and a challenge. It's a comfort because it reminds us that no matter what, Christ Jesus is in charge: he reigns sovereign over all nations, all people -- over the entire cosmos, which he is making new again. But this is also a challenge. Jesus calls us to align our priorities with the priorities of his Kingdom and align our lives with the message of his Kingdom. He calls us to lay aside lesser things to commit our lives to him as true Lord over all.
