  • We discover community through education, service, Sunday services, and fun experiences for all ages.

Anything Good? (John 1:43-51)

Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Phillip said to him, “Come and see.” (John 1:46)

Nazareth was a tiny little rural town where nothing great would have been expected by people.  When Jesus was introduced as “Jesus from Nazareth,” he didn’t draw any attention from anybody.  Nathanael’s expression, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” seems to show his disrespect, indifference, or insult to the person from that town.   But when Nathanael confronted Jesus, he saw something special in that person, Jesus.  What did he see?  Do you have anything special like Jesus has?  Anything good?

Come and join us in Jonesville UMC at 9:30am on Sunday or meet us in the streaming service at Jonesvilleumc.org at the same time.
