How to be a Sinner

We call ourselves sinners in much of our church life. Yet the sinner identity when done right brings peace of mind, a clear conscience, and love for others. Addressing topics like guilt, shame, and self-care, this compassionate guide will help you reflect on your life in surrender to God’s mercy.

During each of our speaker’s presentations (6:30-8:00 pm),  our children’s series, Emotions, will be held in the Children’s Chapel.  Each week, we will focus on loving God from the inside out. We think of some emotions as good and others as bad. But God made every part of us, and no matter how we are feeling, we can turn to Him. Children of all ages (K-6th grade) are welcome to join in on the fun! Toddlers through Pre-K will have a modified program in the Run-Around-Room.  Email sarah@stjohnsmontgomery.org with questions/concerns.
