Jonah and the Whale is one of the great stories in the Bible. It's the only part of Jonah's story most people know. But it's not the most important part of the story. The rest of the story tells us how God changed Jonah's life and saved a nation. It's a story of hope.
This Sunday, to conclude our sermon series "Find Hope on the Hill," we'll hear from Jonah about how he survived three days in the whale's stomach and how God miraculously saved him. We'll find out that Jonah finally did what God wanted him to do in the first place and how Jonah's ministry saved many people. Finally Jonah will explain how God changed his mind, changed his prejudices, changed his attitudes and helped him to understand the miracle of grace.
I hope you'll join us for worship at First Baptist Riverside this Sunday as we learn the lessons Jonah learned about God and his love. When you understand the message behind the book of Jonah it will change the way you think about God and others. We worship every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. (Traditional) and 10:45 a.m. (Contemporary). Hope to see you on The Hill.
