Picture Yourself in the Story

So much of life happens around us, even to us, that we take little time to notice. The amount of stimulation and news and ideas and expectations coming at us can outweigh our ability to process all of it and so we stop looking too closely, we filter in order to survive. While this is necessary, it can also dull our senses for seeing the things that matter deeply. In this season of Lent, we will intentionally put a “frame” around the scenes of Jesus’ last week and also frame our own lives in a way that we can see what really matters. Join us as we take a closer look at the events of the last week of Jesus' life so you can figure out what your role is in its ongoing message! 


Our past doesn't have to hurt our present. We all have hurts, habits, and hang-ups that hold us back, impact our relationships, and prevent us from claiming our identity as God's beloved son or daughter. Typically, we bury our hurts and press on. What if we acknowledged them and let God heal us? Click below to listen to this series!
