Midweek Lenten Services

You are invited to join us each Wednesday through April 10 at 6:30 p.m. for our Midweek Lenten Services as we intentionally focus on our relationship with Jesus. We are exploring The Ten Commandments to discover what God’s intent was for giving us those particular commands. We will come to see that the Commandments are just a perfect description of what God’s love looks like for us. As Paul wrote to the Romans “Love is the fulfilling of the Law” Romans 3:10.
We will reflect on a Commandment each week to discover how it is an expression of God’s love and how Jesus lived it out perfectly. This week we will learn about the 4th Commandment.
