1 Timothy 1:1-17
Luke 8:40-56 The story of Jesus raising Jairus’ daughter from the dead and healing the sick woman teaches us that Jesus has authority over sickness and death.

Matthew 2:1-12 That first Christmas, a king was born. And he’s still king today. As we take a closer look at the way that Herod, the wise men and the religious leaders respond to the birth of Jesus we’re led to ask “which of these characters am I most like?” How do you respond to King Jesus?

John 14:1-6 Life can sometimes throw us into a spin. When this happens, how do we avoid getting dizzy? We need to fix our eyes on something steady and sure. Easter gives us a chance to do that, as we look again to the One who has defeated sin and death. In this message, we’ll think about something Jesus said just before He died.
