2019 Wednesday Lenten Series
Ash Wednesday is on March 6th, and with that the 40 days of Lent begin. This year for our Wednesday Lenten Services our overall theme will be based on the Sermon on the Mount. Some of the most familiar teachings of Jesus are from his Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7, and they relate to His life, death and resurrection. Each week we will learn more deeply how the cross itself is his ultimate sermon on the mount for our journey of faith.
Each 40 minute service will begin at 7:00 PM in Hosanna’s Sanctuary on Wednesdays starting March 6th thru April 10th. Join us as we prepare our hearts once again for our Easter celebration.
2019 Wednesday Lenten Schedule
March 6, 2019 – Ash Wednesday – 7:00 PM – Theme: Blessed Are You – Matthew 5:1-11
We who are poor in spirit, who mourn and who hunger and thirst for righteousness are called blessed by our Savior in his Sermon on the Mount. Ash Wednesday reminds us that though we have been brought low by sin, our Lord will bless us with new life in him through the cross.
March 13, 2019 – Week 2 – 7:00 PM – Theme: Salt and Light – Matthew 5:13-16
Christ calls us to be salt and light in this world of sin. We who have tasted and seen his great love for us on the cross can spend our Lent savoring his salvation and shining with his glory and grace in the places where he has put us.
March 20, 2019 – Week 3 – 7:00 PM – Theme: Prayer and Fasting – Matthew 6:5-18
Lent is a season of prayer and fasting. We grow in our relationship with Christ by communicating with him, and we learn more about him and ourselves by giving up those things that can distract us from our connection to him.
March 27, 2019 – Week 4 – 7:00 PM – Theme: Do Not Worry – Matthew 6:25-34
So much of our lives, even in Lent, is spent worrying about what might happen or what has happened. Christ teaches us to stop being anxious, but simply to trust that he knows what is best and will take care of us to the very end.
April 3, 2019 – Week 5 – 7:00 PM – Theme: Judge Not – Matthew 7:1-5
We live in a very judgmental world, so Jesus’ advise not to judge sounds radical to our modern ears. When we leave all judgement up to God, we free ourselves to look at one another through fresh and forgiving eyes.
April 10, 2019 – Week 6 – 7:00 PM – Theme: Build on Rock – Matthew 7:24-27
We build our lives on very shaky foundations, and then we are surprised when things start collapsing. Jesus reminds us in his teachings that the only solid foundation is himself, the Rock of our salvation. On him alone we build.
