Word of the Week: Sacrament

In our Word of the Week, Pastor Rob Sauers takes a look at the sacraments – what they are, and what their meaning is for us today. The word is not found in any English Bible.

CPR – Why do we follow a "Church Year"?

CPR – Why do we follow a "Church Year"?

This week Pastors Rob Sauers and Nathanael Mayhew discuss the reason we follow a “church year” in our worship services.  The church year actually has roots in the Old Testament where God gave the nation of Israel a “church year” that they were to follow so that they would keep focused on God and His promises to them.  While many churches do not follow a church year, it is a valuable tool to help us study the life and work…
