February 18-19, 2017 - Unstoppable Impact
Acts 17:16-31 & Matthew 5:38-48
As a faith family, we desire to have an impact in our world with the Gospel. To do this, we need to overcome barriers and cross boundaries for the Lord just as the Lord has done for us to save us. Our next and last stop on our journey of the Unstoppable Gospel is to cross those boundaries to show the unstoppable impact of the Gospel.
February 25-26, 2017 - What to Do When Nothing Happens
Exodus 24:12-18 & Matthew 17:1-9
All of us are subjected to grueling tests of endurance every day, week, and year of our lives. What we do with ourselves during these endurance tests reveals how faithful we are to God. Sometimes when you least expect it, as you wait on the Lord, nothing happens!
Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017 - Standing in the Word
Deuteronomy 8:1-3 & Colossians 3:16-17
In our worship for Ash Wednesday, as always, we will gather together around the Word. Jesus, the Word made flesh, is the Bread of life, and by faith we are nourished in His Word and in His Holy Supper. Jesus satisfies us as no earthly food can!
March 4-5, 2017 - Encounters with Christ: Temptation to Do Good
Matthew 4:11 & Genesis 3:1-7
In our Gospel lessons during Lent, Jesus has several encounters. This week we explore the encounter he had with the Devil at the beginning of his ministry. The Devil tempts the Lord, but the Lord does not give into his temptation. Rather, Jesus desires to do the good work of embracing His destiny of the cross and us.
March 11-12, 2017 - Encounters with Christ: Nicodemus
John 3:1-17 & Genesis 12:1-9
In our Gospel lessons during Lent, Jesus has several encounters. This week we explore the encounter He had with Nicodemus. Nicodemus thought he would be in control of the conversation. The Lord takes over the conversation and changes the context of the discussion as well as Nicodemus’ life—as He does for us!
March 18-19, 2017 - Encounters with Christ: The Woman at the Well
John 4:5-26 & Romans 5:1-8
In our Gospel lessons during Lent, Jesus has several encounters. This week we explore the encounter He had with the Samaritan woman at the well. She didn’t know that her life was about to change when she went to the well that day for water. Jesus confronts her life and shares with her a greater spiritual truth. That truth is found in living, spiritual water that Jesus gives.
