2017 Lent: Living Our Baptismal Calling

Sunday Worship at 10:30 a.m.

Lent is popularly known as a season for individual self-examination, penitence, and “giving something up” as a spiritual discipline. It seems to be primarily inwardly and negatively focused. It’s commonly seen as being about what’s wrong with me as an individual and what I’m willing to do to improve myself.

While self-examination and some individual work are part of the work of Lent, the early church developed Lent to be primarily “other-focused.” Lent was created as the final leg of intense preparation and support for people who had chosen to learn to live the way of Jesus. It was, we might say, a kind of finishing school for those preparing for baptism and lifelong Christian discipleship.

Creed – What Christians Believe and Why

Creed Introduction

 
We’re used to answers popping up on a screen right in front of us. But when the questions examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life, finding the answers takes more than simply typing a few words and pushing a button. Adam Hamilton believes that powerful answers to many of our complicated questions are contained in the Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs.
In Creed, he explores not only what Christians believe, but also why they believe, and why it matters, which in turn leads readers to confront and examine their own core beliefs and go beyond reciting the Creed’s familiar words. 


Lies Women Believe – Mondays @ 12:30

 

 
We are like Eve. We have all experienced defeats and failures, trouble and turmoil. We have all experienced a selfish heart, a shrewish spirit, anger, envy and bitterness. And we ache to do things over, to have lives of harmony and peace. In

Lies Women Believe, Nancy Leigh DeMoss exposes those areas of deception most commonly believed by Christian women:

  • Lies about themselves: I should not have to live with unfulfilled longings.
  • Lies about sin: I cannot walk in consistent victory over sin.
  • Lies about their marriage: If I submit to my husband, I will be miserable.
  • Lies about their emotions: I can’t control my emotions.
  • Lies about their circumstances: I just can’t take any more.

She sheds light on how we can be delivered from bondage and set free to walk in God’s grace, forgiveness, and abundant life. Lies Women Believe

offers the most effective weapon to counter and overcome Satan’s deceptions—God’s truth.
