Thirst Sermon Series

All around Michigan we can see bodies of water, from the great lakes, to rivers, streams and even swimming pools. During the summer, we might enjoy water for recreational use like swimming, fishing or kayaking. Water isn’t just for recreation, it’s also needed for life. What might the scriptures tell us about water? How does Jesus engage with water? Learn more and worship together on Sunday mornings! Sermon series runs through Sept. 6.
