Seven Words: YOUR
March 12, 2017
In this season of Lent we find a glimpse of Jesus' true passion as his death draws near. And when looking down from the cross at his dearest friend and cherished mother, what Jesus spoke to them still speaks to us yet today. Join us this weekend in worship as we discover all over again the unimaginable invitation Jesus extends to us all.
Seven Words: YOUR
● God’s Story is YOUR story.
- Luke 2:34-35
- Genesis 3:8
● God’s invitation is YOUR invitation.
- 2 Timothy 4:4-6
● God’s table is YOUR Table.
