I Still Am

This seven-week sermon small group series highlights the "I Am" statements that Jesus declares about Himself in the book of John. Because Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever, we can know with confidence that He still is the Bread of Life, the Light of the World, the Gate, the Good Shepherd, the Resurrection and the Life, the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and the True Vine. And, that is such great news for us today!

Lent at Ventura Missionary

The "I Still Am" series coincides with the weeks leading up to Easter when churches all over the world participate in Lent, a  40-day period of fasting, prayer, and devotion that helps them remember God's work of redemption through the person and work of Jesus Christ.

During this series, we are inviting you into this opportunity. On the tab below, you'll find a more detailed description about Lent, as well as a schedule of weekly practices designed to prepare your heart for Easter and help you connect more deeply with God.


We encourage you to utilize these resources for our series. The content is designed to help you grow in community and individually, and also to share with others who might benefit from them.


Discussion Guides for small groups are updated by the end of day on Friday each week and coincide with the sermon for that week.


Our daily word of encouragement videos also reinforce what is taught on Sunday mornings. You can access our videos on social media, the home page of our website, in our enewsletter, and on our YouTube channel.


Listen to some of the worship songs that we sing on Sundays from our Spotify playlist. It's a great way to engage in worship while you drive, do chores, or exercise, and it's also a way to fill your home with truth and peace and joy.
