When John sat down to write his account of Jesus he had one goal. That goal was to show the word that Jesus was who Jesus claimed to be: the Son of God, sent to give life to those that trust in him. Over the next 40 days, you'll walk through every word of John's Gospel, and a handful of other readings from the New and Old Testament, which together paint a complete and compelling picture of Jesus Christ. The hope is that in the end you'll be drawn to a place of deeper trust in and greater respect for this man who has changed our world and promises peace, purpose, and unshakeable hope to those who call upon his name....

One year ago, Pastor Matt arrived and the process began of replanting Our Saviour Lutheran Church as Our Saviour | New York or OSNY--a neighborhood church that becomes known as THE place to make friends, meet Jesus and make a difference.
