During this year’s Lenten season, we will be focusing on the loving words of Christ that He spoke from the cross as He offered up His life for the life of the world. Together we will discover that each word imparts a blessing and is a word of Gospel. The sermons and the weekly Bible Study on Wednesday evenings will expound on these words of Christ, linking them to Jesus’ words and works recorded in the Gospel as well as the Old Testament prophesies that pointed to Him. Each word of Christ proclaims and delivers something about Him, the Word that became alive in his person, and delivers His saving death to us that we would trust Him for forgiveness, life, and salvation.
