At the beginning of new books, we will have a special video instead of a normal written post. Today, we start the book of Mark by hearing from our Lead Pastor, Tim Parsons!

Awesome start to a new year to add this daily study along with my morning devotional and prayer time; refreshing to spend time with our Lord and Savor each day. Priceless!
So good to have you on the journey!!

It’s so good to have you with us Holly!!
Like the addition of the memory verse!
My bible notes: John had a clear purpose for living and his passion allowed him to carry out that purpose!
Our main purpose is to show others the savior!
Right on Rasheed!! Thankful for you!!

Great start!! Excited to read the New Testament with our church community this year!!
Thanks for joining us Sara! So grateful for you!
I’ve always been so intrigued by John the Baptist. His size, diet, clothing, but more importantly his humility.
So grateful for you Joey! You are a gift from God!
Praying that the Lord will use this to grow is in love for Him this year!
Me too! So thankful for you!
Nice job, Tim. Looking forward to this.

Thanks Lindsay! I’m very grateful for you!
Great start Tim! I’m eager to hear and read more!
Awesome! So proud of you Steve!
Thanks Tim! Enjoyed the video message this morning.
One thing that really jumped out at me from this passage is how Jesus was baptized and the Spirit descended upon Him, but He was then IMMEDIATELY sent out into the wilderness to be tempted by Satan.
Walking with God or being on a spiritual high doesn’t PREVENT trials in our lives. Instead, walking closely with God PREPARES us to face whatever trials come our way.
Looking forward to reading through the NT this year with you, CPC family!
Good Word Thomas!! Thankful for you!
I love the memory verse this month, such an important reminder that we must deny ourselves and take up our cross!!
It has become easy recently to want to do things my way and I needed that reminder to pick up my cross.
I am excited to continue this NT study this year, thanks for a great message Tim!
Thanks John! I’m so proud of you!
Great passage! A couple things stand out here that are very applicable to us, and convicting, if I'm being honest.
First, Jesus called the disciples, and they immediately followed him. There was no hesitation, there were no questions asked, but they dropped everything and followed! What a great example for us. When Jesus calls us to something, we should act immediately and have full trust in Him!
Second, as Tim pointed out, John the Baptist was pointing others to Jesus. We should be doing the same! We should be living in such a way that people see Jesus in us, not only by what we say, but also by how we act.
Great start to the year! Looking forward to it!
Great thoughts Scottie!! So thankful for you!
Thankful for a church that has such great resources! Excited to see how God will work through Jumpstart this year!
Thanks Taylor! Glad you’re on the journey!
Great start! SO thankful for the daily text reminders as added accountability. Just what I need!!!
Awesome! Thanks for doing this!
I love the memory verse addition! It’s helpful to consider that we all experience trials but our calling as Christians is to take up our tribulatory crosses FOR JESUS! It brings purpose and meaning.
Thanks Naomi! So thank for your family!
Powerful video message post today! I like the idea of the memory verse for each month. :)
