Good Friday
Encountering Jesus
- Sermon Series

April 19, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Carla Olsen Draper

Scripture: John 19:1-30

On Good Friday the ways of God stand in stark contrast to the ways of humanity.  On this day the mystery of God’s wondrous love and power are displayed and suffering and death.  We will never fully understand the crucifixion but understanding is not the purpose of the day. On Good Friday we gather as God’s people to stand in awe and horror, in wonder and gratitude at the foot of the cross. 

Join us as we reflect on Jesus’ passion and gather around His table to remember and receive the gracious gifts he won for us on the cross.

Lord, Teach Us to Pray

Scripture: Ephesians 6:18-24

Learning to pray - simply basic to what it means to be a Christian and grow as a Christian.   The first disciples came to Jesus and asked him: teach us to pray.  And our sermon this Sunday will consider what it means to pray, as Jesus taught them to pray Thy Kingdom Come and how, actually, we can learn to do this as those who are guided by the Spirit in our praying.
