Journey with our Savior, exploring the spiritual relevance of key points along the path of Christ’s passion in this series of six services for Lent.
The places where the passion of our Lord took place hold special meaning to Christians the world over. These places remind us that Jesus walked this earth and stood in locations we can still find today to carry out his mission of salvation. This was no sightseeing trip for our Savior. There was a serious reason he came to be at certain places and at particular times to suffer and die and rise again. He was fulfilling the will of his Father who desired that we be forgiven and given a place in heaven with him forever.

Prepare Ye –
The prophet Isaiah tells us: prepare ye the way of the Lord. So that is what we do through this Advent Bible Study. First, we ponder, as Mary did. We pray, as Zachariah did. We praise, as Elizabeth did, and we proclaim, as the shepherds did. All these actions prepare us for the coming of our Savior into our lives. With hearts, souls and minds prepare for him, we are ready to receive him with joy this Christmas season.
Week 1 Ponder Dec 2 11:30 am & 6:45 pm
In our worship for the first week in Advent we will consider ways in which we can ponder the meaning of the birth of our Savior through the reading of Scripture and through reflection. Mary serves as a model for us in this pondering in the Annunciation.
Week 2 Pray Dec. 9 11:30 am & 6:45 pm
In our worship for the second week in Advent we think about ways in which we can take more time during this season to communicate to our God through prayer as we wait for Christ. Zechariah, who went to the temple to pray, serves as an example for us of how hard that waiting in prayer can be.
Week 3 Praise Dec. 16 11:30 am & 6:45 pm
In our worship for the third week in Advent we will celebrate the upcoming arrival of our Savior through songs and shouts of praise as we prepare for him. Elizabeth, in her greeting of Mary, provides a benchmark for rejoicing with others over the good news of salvation in Jesus, even as we wait.
Come and join us at Peace!
Optional carry-out lunch available after the 11:30 am service in the Peace Center.
