2018 Lenten Series

Feb 14 - Mar 21    6:45pm - 7:30pm

“The Heart of the Cross”
Can the Christian faith really be summarized as faith in "Jesus Christ, and him crucified?"  
The instrument of the most horrible execution in the ancient world could cast a long shadow over the entire life of Jesus.  As Son of the Highest, he was born in human flesh in order to go to the Cross!  The event of his crucifixion in the plan of God became the crucial moment of all history---the center-point of divine redemption.  On Calvary's Cross, Jesus took our place and bore the divine penalty of wrath for our sin.  On six Wednesday nights and Holy Thursday, we propose once more to carefully walk around the Cross, reverently considering its great meaning for us and the amazing glory of our Savior revealed only there.
