Our Lenten Series this year focuses on the phrase from Isaiah, “By His Wounds We Are Healed” (Isaiah 53:5b). The innocent Son of God had no sins of his own for which he deserved to die, yet his enemies falsely accused him of violating every commandment of God. In each service we will see that it was our sin and disobedience that Jesus bore on the cross. The Lord laid on him “the iniquity of us all.” Because Jesus suffered the penalty of death in our place it is true: “by his wounds we are healed.”
The services will be at 12:15pm and 7pm. Join us for soup at 11:30am before the lunch service in the Fellowship Hall.
Palm Sunday, April 5 — 8:00am & 10:30am: In this service we remember that when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the people asked, “Who is this King of Glory?” They were seeking one who saves when they shouted, “Hosanna!” They were knocking on the door for a new future. What they did not know was that Jesus was opening the door to everlasting life through the cross.
Maundy Thursday, April 9 — 7:00pm: In this service we remember that Jesus lived out the Golden Rule the night he was betrayed, but with a twist. He taught his disciples to do to others as he had done to them: washing their feet, forgiving their sins and loving them unconditionally.
Good Friday, April 10 — 7:00pm: In this service for Good Friday, we remember that Jesus preached that good trees can be recognized by their fruits. Despite its appearance, the tree of the cross on Good Friday proved to be the best tree of all, because by Christ’s death upon it came the fruit of everlasting life.
Easter Sunday, April 12 — 7:00am (Sunrise) & 10:30am (Festival Service): Easter reminds us that Jesus invites us to lay up treasures in heaven and not on earth. His resurrection is a wake-up call to us all that while the things of this earth are temporary, we have the precious gift of life with him forever awaiting us.
