Sermons 2020 — Scripture Memory

Sermon Series 2020

Each Sunday, I will provide verses of scripture based on that week’s sermon theme. Below, you will find an audio and PDF of each scripture. Occasionally, you will see multiple choices per week — one shorter (1-2 verses) and one longer 3+ verses).

Because of the variety of Bible versions used in our church, I am offering these in the NRSV (New Revised Standard Version) and the NIV (New International Version.
