Lenten Sermon Series beginning March 5
PART FIVE: LISTENING TO JESUS PRAY
The content of our prayers reveal so much about who we are. This Sunday, April 2, as we read “the High Priestly Prayer” of Jesus to His Father, we will explore what it tells us about Jesus’ character and heart.
PART FOUR: HOW DO WE KNOW THE TRUTH?
Jesus called the Holy Spirt an Advocate and Comforter, but perhaps you feel that the Holy Spirit’s tendency toward conviction doesn’t feel so comforting. This Sunday, March 26, we will learn how the Holy Spirit draws our eyes and hearts back to the image of Jesus’ sacrifice and love for us, and how we can submit to the power of the Holy Spirit each day.
PART THREE: ARE YOU CONNECTED?
What does it mean to be “in Christ,” to have “Christ in us,” or to be “with God”? If you’ve ever wondered why we use these phrases and what they really mean, come join us this Sunday, March 19, as we take a look at the language of Christianity and how the words we use impact how we see our relationship with God.
PART TWO: GREATER THINGS
How seriously do we take the promises of Jesus? This Sunday, March 12, we will explore Jesus’ promise that those who believe in Him will do even greater things than He did. What does this promise really mean about how God sees us, and what does our response tell us about our faith?
PART ONE: SURRENDER: A NEW COMMANDMENT
Please join us this Sunday, March 5, as we learn how Christ’s new command to “love your neighbor as yourself” is not only the essential thread that ties together and distinguishes the modern church but also how it was different from the Mosaic law practiced by many at the time.
LENTEN SERMON SERIES
Lent is a time of reflection. It is a time that we place focus and emphasis on Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. This year, we have chosen to follow daily readings and reflections composed by Maxie Dunnam, With Jesus in the Upper Room, a seven-week study based on John 13-17.
The last supper with Jesus was a momentous occasion for the disciples. This was the last intimate time Jesus had with His disciples, and has been called “Jesus’ Final Discourse.”
We invite you to journey along with us through Maxie’s book as we “surrender” our need to be in control of every aspect of our lives and instead walk with Jesus in His final days and what God was doing through Him. Books are available in the church Bookstore.
