Servant Church in the of Mason City, IA

1st Sunday in Lent – 2024

Date: February 18, 2024
Key Speaker: Pastor Dan Gerrietts
Season: Lent
Series: Wandering Heart - Figuring out Faith with Peter

This Lent, we are focusing on the life and faith of one of Jesus’ most famous disciples. In Peter, we see a person who is both steadfast and unsteady, a dear friend and a betrayer, a follower and a wanderer. In Peter, we often see ourselves – a very normal human trying to figure it all out—just like us.

Looking at Peter’s faith journey, the lyrics of “Come Thou Fount” came to mind. It’s as if Peter himself wrote this song. And so, as we follow Peter’s story, we will sing our way through Lent, binding our wandering hearts to God.

This week, we hear Jesus calling Peter to drop his nets and follow. What is the beginning of your faith story? When has God sought you out? Have you ever felt like your calling was pursuing—or chasing—you? Did you resist? Did you follow?
