Sunday at Pender


Series: Who Am I?

The question that all of us struggle with.  Are we defined by what we do?  The roles we play?  The people we associate with?  Who am I?

January 12 – Who We Are – Mark 1:9-13
We are God’s children in whom He is well pleased.  That affirmation should fill and guide our lives throughout the year.  Spoken at Jesus’ baptism they are God’s affirmation for us.

Listen to past sermons in the Pender Podcast.
