LENT SERMON SERIES: Simon Peter by Adam Hamilton

At DownRiver Church every Sunday beginning March 10 at 10:30am. Join us as we find ourselves, reconnect with Jesus Christ, and repent our sins during this season of Lent. 

The Lent sermon series, “Simon Peter” is based on the new book by Adam Hamilton. Pastor Jackie Raineri delivers a sermon based on the scripture in the New Testament featuring Simon Peter as a “Flawed but Faithful Disciple” of Jesus Christ. This series reflects us as human beings and the instinctual call we have to serve our own flaws and sins. Simon Peter is the disciple most closely compared to us as everyday sinners. From a small village on the banks of the Sea of Galilee, Simon Peter was raised a fisherman and was called by Jesus to gather his people. 


“While Simon Peter’s shortcomings are clearly on display in the Gospels, so also are his courage, his determination, his longing to follow Jesus even if it costs him his life. The early church knew how his story ended after his dramatic denial of Jesus on the night Jesus was arrested. Following Jesus’ resurrection and ascension, Peter would, in fact, become the rock upon which the church was built. He would carry his cross to follow Jesus. He would lay down his life for the gospel. While in Peter’s flaws Christians might see themselves, they might also see themselves in the moments of Peter’s courage and faithfulness, and ultimately they might see in him a picture of what they might aspire to be when empowered and led by the Spirit.” -by Adam Hamilton, Simon Peter
