"Fighting Temptation"
Sundays in Lent
March 10 - April 14

We are all voluntary victims of Satan’s seductions. Look at your life and you’ll find far too many times of shame and sin when Satan successfully placed a temptation before you and you didn’t say no. You may wonder why you did it, but the truth is you did it. Satan knows our every weakness. He custom tailors temptations for individuals. This Lenten season, we examine some of those tailor-made temptations. We also examine how the Holy Spirit specifically equips us through Word and Sacrament, and by applying forgiveness and teaching sanctification, that we are able to fight those temptations.
March 10 – Wanting Only What You Want
March 17 – Refusing to Change
March 24 – Grumbling Against God
March 31 – Continuing the Cycle of Sin
April 07 – Living with Past Guilt
April 14 – Not Bowing the Knee

In the Bible’s biographical account of Jesus’ suffering, death, and resurrection, there are several striking “three word” statements. Join us to grasp an understanding of these powerful words. Our Lenten worship will feature an inspiring message, dynamic music, and a place to wonder at the height and depth of Jesus’ love.
