    Sunday Sermon - January 24th

    Now is the time for us to be reminded why we're here as a church named Lakeshore Lutheran Fellowship. Jesus revealed the rescue operation that the Father sent Him into the world to accomplish. Jesus also now reveals how is bringing His rescue to a lost world through us. Jesus calls us to follow Him and He will use us to catch others and bring them to Him. Join us on this 3rd Sunday in Epiphany for the message "Fishing for People." The Scripture readings are Jonah 3:1-10, 1 Corinthians 7:29-31, and Mark 1:14-20 (CSB).
