Promises of Grace

Promises of Grace is focused on reminding people who you are in terms of who God has made you.  The goal is to help Lutheran Christians not only become aware of their worldview so that we see our lives in light of our confession but to help connect this to everyday life.  At St. John's, we have been reminding people that, "We are all about Discipleship."  This sermon series is designed to proclaim why this is our work by starting with who we are in relationship to God.  The weekly sermons will all start with the question, "Who are you?" based on the weekly topic.
