2017 Lent Schedule
WEEKENDS THIS LENT “Christ On Trial”
We will listen each week as court is in session to determine who Christ is. Examine evidence in each service that demands a verdict: Who is this Jesus…for you?
Matthew, A Woman Healed, Nicodemus, An Adulterous Woman, John and Mary Magdalene will be questioned on the witness stand to determine if Christ is who He really says He is.
WEDNESDAYS THIS LENT “A Love That Never Dies”
In our midweek Lenten services begin on Ash Wednesday, March 1. Jesus was bound to die, not because he lacked power to stand up to the ones responsible for putting Him on the cross. No, it was our sin that required death. Our transgressions deserve punishment from our just God. However it was God’s great love for us, an undying love, that led Jesus to that cross to take our place and earn our forgiveness. This Lent we will explore that love that never dies each Wednesday at our special midweek services.
