Thy Will Be Done! A Series of Services for the Season of Lent
will be our Midweek Lenten Series this year.

“Not as I will, but as you will,”  Jesus prayed to His Father the night before He went to the cross for our salvation. And that is our prayer as well this Lent as we seek to do God’s will in our lives, as we draw near to the observance of Christ’s suffering, death and resurrection during Holy Week. Each service in our Midweek Lenten Series focuses on a different aspect of God’s will at work among us. Biblical characters are used as insightful reference points each week to guide us in following our Lord more nearly day by day.

Ash Wednesday + February 14
God’s Will and God’s Promise • Abraham and Isaac
By faith, Abraham trusted the will of God when he promised that a son would be born to him. God’s will was done when that son, Isaac, was born, and God’s will was done when his Son, Jesus came into the world to redeem his people.

Lenten Midweek 2 + February 21
God’s Will and My Inadequacy • Moses
At first, Moses did not think he could free the Israelites from slavery in Egypt.  But God gave him confidence to set his people free.  In Lent we remember that God sent his Son to do his will and set all people free from the slavery of sin.

Lenten Midweek 3  + February 28
God’s Will and My Dreams • David
Anointed by God to rule in Judah, King David followed God’s will to shepherd his people, but often failed to live up to God’s dream for him. We welcome the Good Shepherd into our lives who fulfilled God’s dream perfectly to gather his wandering sheep into the sheepfold of heaven.


 Our Sunday Adult Bible Classes
(beginning after Fellowship and coffee time
at 9:45 a.m. each week in the Fellowship Centre)
will accompany and enhance this series

 


I hope you will plan to join us each Wednesday at 12:10 or 6:30 p.m.as we move closer and closer to the Cross and Open Tomb of Jesus
and as, through Word and Sacrament,
the Holy Spirit draws us closer and closer to our Savior,
who did all that was needed for our salvation!
Together, we will be richly blessed as God speaks to us!
