A Lenten journey of repentance and evolving faith
March 10 – April 19, 2019

This Lent season, we prepare for Easter and the resurrection by practicing repentance: a word that simply means to change one’s mind.

Message line-up:

Giving Thanks For Change
Pastor Scott Austin

Change can sometimes be difficult, but it is often a sign of growth in the spiritual life. When the Israelites entered the Promised Land, they celebrated their new life with thanks offerings. Things are changing: thanks be to God!

(Deuteronomy 26:1-11; Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16; Romans 10:8b-13; Luke 4:1-13)
Darkness, Guts, and the Goblet of Fire
Kevin Garcia

Special guest and LQBTQ advocate Kevin Garcia shares about how our evolving understanding of God often begins in the darkest times.

(Genesis 15:1-12, 17-18; Psalm 27)

The End of an Era
Pastor Scott Austin

The story of scripture is a story of change: one day God provides manna, and the next day it stops. But the vision of the Father that Jesus gives us is one of steadfast love: the power that changes everything.

(Joshua 5:9-12; Psalm 32; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21; Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32)
Forget the Past
Pastor Scott Austin

The prophets and apostles warn us that being stuck in the past will keep us from experiencing God fully in the present and make it impossible to forge a new future.

(Isaiah 43:16-21; Psalm 126; Philippians 3:4b-14; John 12:1-8)
The Meaning of the Cross
Pastor Scott Austin

One of the most common questions about Christianity is why did Jesus have to die? It may be time to change your mind about how the work of Jesus on the cross saves us, and what that means for us and the world.

(Philippians 2:5-11; Luke 22:14-20)
Good Friday Tenebrae Service, 11pm
