Lent 2019—Jesus on Trial

Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on March 6, 2019.  Our theme takes us to a courtroom scene with the trial of Jesus. Each week beginning March 13, a new witness will be brought forward and we will hear his testimony in the trial of Jesus. You will hear the testimony and be asked to come to a decision regarding who Jesus is—the true Son of God or an imposter. If you see that Jesus is the Son of God, that will result in a change of behavior as His followers. Come and join us for the trial of Jesus. Each week Pastor Steve will serve as the Defense Attorney and Pastor Charlie will serve as the Prosecuting Attorney. A cross with six flags will be given to families of our congregation. The flags will list the names and faces of the people brought forth as the witnesses. Come and hear the testimonies of Barabbas, John (Jesus’ disciple), King Herod, James (Jesus’ brother), and Pontius Pilate.
