Going Deeper with Jesus:  The Journey of Simon Peter
An Eight-Week Sermon Series Concluding on Easter
February 26 – April 8, 2012

Maybe you have heard of Jesus but not met him. Met him but not followed him. Followed him but fallen away. Fallen away, come back, and wondered what is next. Wondered if you really want to go where Jesus is leading. Simon Peter has been there. Follower, failure, sinner, saint, cowardly, courageous…Peter is as human as they come. He is also the rock on which God builds the church. Join us for journey with Peter. He shows how to go deeper with Jesus. And Jesus, through Peter, shows how he builds his church through us.
