In May and June we will be studying the Gospel of Mark together.  The series is entitled “Urgency” because the Gospel of Mark moves very quickly. When you read the book, you will notice words like “immediately” and feel the rapid pace of the Gospel.  In this pandemic time, I also feel there is an urgency to following Jesus.  Everything else around us has slowed down and it can be easy to focus on our frustrations and lose sight of Jesus.  If you don’t know Jesus, now is the time to follow him!

Please join us during this series by following along in the reading and actively listening during the sermons. You can also find the sermons to follow along with the series here.

Memory verse: Philippians 4:4-7 NIV
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

You can find the reading plan here. It is designed to help you engage in reading God’s Word each week in preparation for the sermon. We are using the H.E.A.R. Journal Method to do devotions together. If you want to learn how to do a H.E.A.R. journal, click here. You can also download a blank H.E.A.R. Journal sheet here. If you already have a Bible Study method that you prefer, use that. The point isn’t the method, but that we are studying God’s Word together. If you would like a hard copy of the journal, please contact the office by e-mail at office@npbc.us
