Join our Trinity family on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings as we journey through the season of Lent, which begins with Ash Wednesday on March 6. Our series theme for Lent takes us through the most familiar teachings of Jesus from his Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7 and relates them to the events surrounding Christ’s life, death and resurrection. In the process, the services will powerfully reveal that the cross itself is the ultimate sermon on the mount for our journey of faith in this sacred season.
There will also be a Sermon on the Mount devotional for your family and the adult study and Sunday School in-between services will follow our Lenten theme. Join us as we journey with Jesus to the cross and his glorious resurrection!
March 6 – Ash Wednesday @ 4:30 & 7:00
BLESSED Are YOU – We who are poor in spirit, who mourn and who hunger and thirst for righteousness are called blessed by our Savior in his Sermon on the Mount. Ash Wednesday reminds us that though we have been brought low by sin, our Lord will bless us with new life in him through the cross.
Week 1 – Sunday, March 10 & Wednesday, March 13
SALT and LIGHT – Christ calls us to be salt and light in this world of sin. We who have tasted and seen his great love for us on the cross can spend our Lent savoring his salvation
and shining with his glory and grace in the places where he has put us.
Week 2 – Sunday, March 17 & Wednesday, March 20
PRAYER and FASTING – Lent is a season of prayer and fasting. We grow in our relationship with Christ by communicating with him, and we learn more about him and ourselves
by giving up those things that can distract us from our connection to him.
Week 3 – Sunday, March 24 & Wednesday, March 27
DO NOT WORRY – So much of our lives, even in Lent, is spent worrying about what might happen or what has happened. Christ teaches us to stop being anxious, but simply
to trust that he knows what is best and will take care of us to the very end.
Week 4 – Sunday, March 31 & Wednesday, April 3
JUDGE NOT – We live in a very judgmental world, so Jesus’ advice not to judge sounds radical to our modern ears. When we leave all judgment up to God, we free ourselves to
look at one another through fresh and forgiving eyes.
Week 5 – Sunday, April 7 & Wednesday, April 10
BUILD on ROCK – We build our lives on very shaky foundations, and then we are surprised when things start collapsing. Jesus reminds us in his teachings that the only solid
foundation is himself, the Rock of our salvation. On him alone we build.
