Transfiguration of the Lord

Luke 9:28-36

 Jesus takes three of his disciples up to the mountain to pray when something amazing happens. Jesus is transfigured and Moses and Elijah appear by his side. These disciples have a mountaintop experience of faith as they are filled with a sense of awe at God’s presence. We will discuss mountaintop experiences of faith and how they can continue to sustain and inspire our faith.

Ash Wednesday

Joel 2:1-2, 12-17

 The prophet Joel calls God’s people to repent with fasting and weeping, offering our entire hearts to the Lord. Lent is traditionally a period of introspection, a time to recognize the weight of our sin and our need for a Savior. We will examine how a prayerful attitude can lead to spiritual growth through the Lenten season.

Jesus on the Move: March and April 2019

 Jesus didn’t stay in one place for long. His earthly ministry was filled with journeys to new communities. Many of the Gospel lessons tell the story of Jesus encountering people for the first time. Jesus also moved through a broad range of human emotions, including temptation, joy, suffering, hope, and even death. This series will help us appreciate the depth and breadth of Jesus’ life and ministry, which led him to the cross. We will explore what it looks like for us to follow Jesus’ teachings and emulate Jesus’ behavior.

The Second Sunday of Lent

Luke 4:1-13

 Temptation is a part of life. Jesus himself was tempted while he was in the wilderness for forty days, so Jesus can sympathize with us when we are tested. Even though we will give into temptation at times, we have hope because Jesus lived a perfect life without sin. Through Christ’s righteousness we can find our own redemption!

The Third Sunday of Lent

Luke 13:1-9

 Jesus is asked about a disaster that occurred in his day. The crowd wonders whether those who suffered tragedy deserved their fate—whether they were being punished by God. Jesus exposes our tendency to judge other people for their problems and our reluctance to examine our own motivations and shortcomings. Jesus invites his followers to grow spiritually by looking inward and seeking repentance.

The Fourth Sunday of Lent

Luke 15:11-32

 Jesus tells us the well-known parable of the Prodigal Son and his Older Brother. The younger brother wastes away his life and squanders his inheritance making poor decisions. The older brother is unable to open his heart and show compassion to his brother. Both brothers have sinned. The father, who represents God, still loves and embraces both brothers with open arms. Even when our sin distances ourselves from God, our Lord always welcomes us back home and offers us grace!
