“Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. 2 So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” - John 20:1-2 (NIV)
Our 2018 Lenten/Easter Sermon Series theme is, “THE GREAT EXCHANGE”. As Jesus prepared to become the King of glory, those who lined the streets of Bethany cried out, “HOSANNA” because of the mercy He lived and loved them through. Just a few hours later, the King would claim His crown…on a hill in the city of Golgotha that would offer THE GREATEST EXCHANGE in history! It was at the first Easter that Jesus offered payment for a purpose no one could ever fully perceive needed, and would never fully understand. To this very day, this offering is one that all stand in awe to claim and His recipients remain eager to proclaim!
Join us, as we mark in the gospels the walk and the wonder of our great King, who took of His royalty that we might own our righteousness. We will discover the will of a God who thought so much of us that He served as THE GREAT EXCHANGE of purchase required that we might live forever. Join us this March and April on Sundays at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. as we permeate ourselves in the triumphant purchase of our beloved Prince of Peace, who made the impossible available, the undeserved credited to our account, and the price paid for the purpose God waited eternity to see come forth… SALVATION! All of this made possible, through one of the most routine steps we take as humans, transformed into one of the most holy acts taken… CRUCIFIXION. Discover in new and fresh ways the reasons why Jesus did so…GRACE and LOVE! We look forward to seeing you each week of this series!
