Lent Series

Lent Sermon Series – “The Gospel in Seven Words” - Imagine that a friend or family member who is unfamiliar with your Christian faith asks you to summarize the Gospel. She isn’t looking for a laundry list of doctrines. She has no interest in hearing you recite the Apostles’ Creed. She wants to get to the heart of the matter. “In seven words or less,” she says, “tell me what you believe as a Christian.”  What would you say? How would you put it? Are you be prepared to confess your faith in Jesus?  To be a Christian is to “believe with your heart” and “confess with your mouth” the good news of God’s love for us in Christ (Romans 10:9–10). Peter calls us to be prepared always to give a reason for the hope we have as Christians (1 Peter 3:15). Christians have the best news in the world to share. But are we prepared to share it?  During this season of Lent, we’re going to prepare to celebrate Holy Week by sharing why Holy Week is so important. The sermons in our midweek worship services will require participation as we work together to formulate faithful Christian confessions. Come prepared to contribute to the conversation! Listen to Pastor Chris explain the sermon series theme:

There is so much to learn about the events of Holy Week, from Palm Sunday to Easter morning.  On Easter Sunday, your family (all ages) will have the opportunity to learn about the events of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday.  As your family walks through the five stations hearing the Holy Week story, you will make a keepsake craft to take home.  The Family Easter Experience will be open for walk-ins anytime between 8:00am and 10:15am and will be located in the upstairs Abounding Love Preschool rooms.  Come!  Celebrate Easter with us!
