YOU DEFINITELY DO NOT WANT TO MISS OUR NEXT “NOT A FAN” Small Group Lenten Study
Jesus is NOT looking for fans… He’s looking for followers. This is not a conventional small group experience. It is a cinematic journey, a series of mini-movies, with the perspective and depth to help shape you into a first century Christ follower. Plan now to join on a spiritual journey that is bound to transform your commitment to Jesus Christ .
Our “NOT A FAN” Small Group Lenten Study will meet at the Ministry Center every Sunday evening of Lent, at 6:30 PM.
If you have any questions, please contact Reverend Dan. Email: email@example.com Phone: 547-3626
SCRIPTURE READINGS FOR NEXT SUNDAY, MARCH 25 PALM SUNDAY
Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29:
An exhortation to give thanks to God for His eternal mercy. Also a cry for God to save His people, and an invitation for God’s people to join a procession of thanksgiving, marching to the altar with palms, blessing the one who comes in the Lord’s name.
Jesus’ humility and obedience in his incarnate, crucified life, and God’s exaltation of Christ.
Jesus instructs his disciples to fetch a young donkey for him to ride. Then he rides it into Jerusalem and a procession forms with people laying their coats and leafy branches on the road, while shouting out “Hosanna, Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord”. Then Jesus goes into the temple, looks around and leaves because it is late.
