Mark 7:24-30

This week we learn an important lesson about the kind of faith that Jesus honours in the story of the Syrophoenician woman in Mark 7.

You can also download a discipleship menu for this sermon. The menus are a selection of activities that you can engage in on your own, with a friend, or even in a small group to put this message into practice in your life. Download the menu from our website under the Next Steps tab.

The wonderful lesson of this passage is that Jesus honours the faith we bring. Whatever our need, whatever our belief in him might be, when we act on that Jesus meets us, inviting us to a next faithful step.

Just before we go, let me invite you to join us for the Big III, a mid-week podcast where Matt, Jess, and I sit down and unpack three big questions that were raised in the sermon. I actually have Matt Willis with me today. Hey, Matt, what's one of the questions we'll be tackling in this week's episode?

If that question piqued your curiosity, make sure to download and subscribe to the Big III everywhere you listen to podcasts.

We'd love for you to join us for one of our services this weekend. You can join us on Friday at 10:00 am, Sunday mornings at 9:30 or 6:00. Our 9:30 am will continue to be live-streamed and we'd love for you to join us online at
