The message series for the weeks leading up to Good Friday and Easter is entitled, “Jesus On Mission.” Our message this week is entitled, “Storm Tested Faith” from Matthew 8 and Mark 4.

We will continue talking about great faith as we look at the story of the disciples in a boat on the Sea of Galilee when Jesus calmed the storm. The disciples who survived the storm would each claim that their faith in Jesus grew as it was tested by the storm.

The question is how does faith grow and the premise we will look at is that your faith grows the most when it is tested. James, the brother of Jesus and leader of the Jerusalem church began his short and practical book with these words on faith and growth…

James 1:2-3 (NLT):

“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. 3 For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.”

Join us as we think about how to make it through the storms that we face in life and how they can be used to grow our faith in God.
