Join us online this Sunday, January 10th, when we will hear from guest preacher, Rev. John DeNardo. John, an ordained American Baptist Minister who serves as pastor at the First Baptist Church of Winchester. His sermon is entitled “A Little Peace and Quiet,” and is based on the scripture leading up to Jesus’ feeding the five thousand:

     The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught. Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

     So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place. But many who saw them leaving recognized them and ran on foot from all the towns and got there ahead of them. When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.

Rev. DeNardo is a seminary graduate from Regent University with an M.A. in Practical Theology as well as a B.A. in Biblical Studies from Gordon College. As a Minister he focuses on providing leadership in the areas of spiritual and community growth. John and his wife Lynda currently live in Newburyport, Massachusetts where they have raised their two daughters.
