Keeping you connected to the life and ministry of 
Concord Presbyterian Church!


Sunday, January 31
Pastor Steve Clark preaching

     For this Sunday, READ 1 Corinthians 1:18-31 and REFLECT: In these fourteen verses, Paul uses the word "foolish" or "foolishness" six times and the word "wise" or "wisdom" twelve times. When you hear the word "foolish," what comes to mind? When you hear the word "wise," what comes to mind? In these verses Paul describes Jesus' crucifixion as displaying God's power. What do you think he means? How do you understand the meaning or purpose of Jesus' crucifixion? What power do you see in it?
