A Lenten Invitation: Watch and Pray
During Lent, we prepare our hearts for celebrating the passion, death and resurrection of our Savior during Holy Week and Easter. Join us as we begin an impactful study based on new materials written by several members of First Church. A Lenten Invitation: Watch and Pray is a study guide prayerfully designed to draw people into a deeper and more personal relationship with the person of Jesus.
“The emphasis is being with Jesus in his most difficult time as one would be with a beloved friend or family member as they go through their own challenging trials.”
This seven-week course examines the nature of our savior and the meaning of the cross through scripture, meditations, prayer and journaling opportunities organized into seven chapters...
Week 1 - The Love of Christ
Week 2 - The Humanity of Jesus
Week 3 - The Divinity of Jesus
Week 4 - The Humility and Obedience of Jesus
Week 5 - The Meaning of the Cross
Week 6 - Being with Christ in His Suffering
Week 7 - The Resurrection of Jesus
This year, the congregation will be studying A Lenten Invitation both as part of Wednesday Night Downtown and in small groups meeting across the city and throughout the week. See reverse to find a time that works for you and sign up today!
