Lenten Schedule

Mid-Week Lenten Series

"Restored in Christ"

The season of Lent is a time for us to face together the brokenness of our lives and our world, and then turn that brokenness over to Christ so that we can be restored by Him through the cross. Each service in this series focuses on a certain event in the Lenten story and take a good, hard look at a broken element from that particular story. Coming to an understanding of how each of these broken elements leads to restoration in Christ is key to understanding what it ultimately means to live today as new creations in Christ.Please join us and invite a friend.
