Our 2020 Lenten Series: “Eyes on Jesus”
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:2)
Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. and Sundays at 9:30 a.m.
February 26, 7:00 pm Ash Wednesday
Wednesdays, March 4, 11, 18, 25 & April 1
They say hindsight is 20/20, right? This Lent, we will look back on Jesus through various characters in the gospels. So often their eyes were clouded and confused, and they were unable to see him for who he truly was. Others, by faith, recognized him as the messiah, God with us. This year, “Eyes on Jesus” will examine how the various people around Jesus viewed him – and how we should view him. We will “fix our eyes” on Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, beginning on Ash Wednesday, February 26, by looking at the “Misjudging Eyes” of the disciples, unable to see a woman’s anointing with costly perfume as a gift and anointing of Jesus to prepare him for his saving death. In the weeks to follow, we will reflect on the “Betraying Eyes” of Judas, the “Sleepy Eyes” of Peter, James, and John, the “Denying Eyes” of Peter, the “Murderous Eyes” of the chief priests and scribes, the “Worldly Eyes” of Pilate, and more. Join us so that you can rightly see God’s saving life-giving grace that is at work in us and all creation through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.
