Sermon Notes: Jesus Prepares For Ministry

After Jesus was Baptized by John in the river Jordan he was led by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness where he prepared for the final days of His ministry on earth including being crucified.  

We must also prepare for the ministry God calls US to do.

Welcome: All are welcome at this worship celebration.  We especially welcome our first-time guests.  Please visit us again soon.
