SUNDAY'S sermon

As we continue in this season of Lent, we are looking at some different examples of lament found throughout the Bible and connecting them to what Jesus lamented and cried out on the cross. It is in the practice and prayers of lament we bring all of our fears, doubts, sadness, and anger to God trusting that God is faithful and hears our prayers. Join us in worship as we learn to do what God invites us to do - what God’s people have done individually and communally for thousands of years - what Jesus did when faced with the broken realities of sin and the enemy of death…Lament!

Don't miss Christmas in February as we look at the story of Christmas in this week's Journey Through the Bible following the service.

Learning to Lament with jesus

As we journey through Lent, we will listen carefully to Jesus's last words from the cross, words shaped by the prayers He used throughout His life from the Old Testament (His Bible). These prayers – called laments – are honest cries to God, filled with the emotions of anger and despair. They are not the polite prayers many of us were taught to pray, but do allow us to come close to God as we are, honest about what we see in us and around us. Join us as we enter into a time of reflection, confession and worship and “Learn to Lament With Jesus.”
