"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."
--1 Corinthians 1:18
The 40-day period of preparation, prayer and fasting leading to Easter is called "Lent". This word is actually the word meaning "spring" in many languages.
To prepare ourselves for Easter, we'll be looking at a marvelous set of sayings from Jesus on the cross. In the midst of his agony there, Christ utters seven powerful statements that touch on the core themes of what happens in the cross of Jesus and how the gospel can transform our lives.
Below is a schedule of the messages. Join us on Sundays at 9 or 11AM (-05:00 GMT) either in person or through livestream. You can also catch them archived, usually no later than Monday afternoon through our website
