Scripture is filled with imagery and descriptions of our Savior Jesus as the warrior who fights

and defeats sin, death, and Satan. Each midweek service during Lent service focuses on an aspect of our Savior-warrior as he is promised to us, fights our enemies for us, and triumphs over them for us.

 

Midweek Lent services will only be shown online from this point forward.

The Son of God Goes Forth to War - title
The Jesus We Need - slide.jpg

In Jesus’ time, people wanted the Messiah to be very different than who Jesus was. And still today, we often desire that the central figure of our faith isn’t like Jesus. We want a conquering hero arriving with his armies of angels. But instead we find a willing suffering servant. This is what Paul called the foolishness of the cross. But the Bible makes it clear that the Jesus we get is far greater than we could have ever designed. He meets all our greatest needs, from forgiveness, to eternal life, to peace in the midst of trials.

 

This weekend series will still stream live on Sundays at 9:00 am.
