Lenten Sermon Series

February 17 - March 24, 2013

This Lent, we invite you to join us for our Lenten series, titled "Out of the Shadows." Each week, we will be retelling the Old Testament story of Jonah and how God called Jonah out of his places of hiding and into God's love, Jesus saw the story of Jonah as central to everything he was doing through his death and resurrection. He even called it the "Sign of Jonah." Few stories capture the spirit of repentance and return like the story of Jonah. It's a story of God's compassion and longing for all people to come out of the shadows of sin and return to him. It's a story of running and returning, of illusions and disillusions, of disobedience and spiteful obedience, and ultimately about a world completely transformed by God's love.
