Blessed are Those Who are

Persecuted for “Righteousness’ Sake”



“Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”  -Matthew 5:10-12


We are getting to the tail end of Jesus’ words on “Blessed are you…” or “Happy are you…”  This Sunday’s blessing is a difficult one:  Be happy because you’re persecuted!  That’s a bit much, right?  Join us as we reflect on this scripture and what it teaches in your life!


Join us in person or via Zoom or FaceBook Live. 

Sunday service begins at 10:15AM.
