NEXT SABBATH, Pastor Gary will continue his sermon series on the subject of the Sabbath titled “A Day to Remember.” The concept of Sabbath has been around for as long as recorded history. How has it changed over the centuries? Are Jews and Christians the only religious groups that observe a day of rest? Does God really care which day one observes as a Sabbath? Where is Jesus in all of this?
