Summer is the time when most of us get an opportunity for vacation or at least have a less hectic schedule that allows for more free time. With the opportunity to relax, a great leisure activity is reading. It’s been said that, “reading a good book is like taking a journey,” which is a fun aspect of getting into a book. Reading also helps a person learn and grow.


This summer, we are exploring a sermon series that is focused on a good book…Romans. In fact, many theologians including Martin Luther would say that it is the best book ever written because it so clearly articulates the gospel. It is rich with theological and doctrinal insights as well and was pivotal in the history of the Reformation. While that may not necessarily entice you to read Romans, perhaps this might: Romans was written at a time similar to the one in which we live today. In this great book, followers of Jesus are given insight on how to live and even thrive in an environment that can be hostile to Christianity. In it, God gives insights on how to deal with truth, suffering, government, evil, salvation, and many other things as well.


Open the Book of Romans with us and join in on the journey of discovering what God has to say to us in it. We’ll be working through approximately one chapter each week from June through October.
