"The Seven Last Words of Christ"
Pastor's Lenten Bible Study
Wednesday Nights at 6 pm
On Wednesday nights during the season of Lent, Pastor Boswell will lead a study of the seven last words that Christ spoke from the cross. Studying Jesus' last words is the way that Christians have wrestled with the meaning and the mystery of the crucifixion for thousands of years. Each week we will study a famous artistic depiction of the crucifixion alongside one of the last words of Jesus from the cross in the gospels. The aim of this study is to help keep the cross before us during the season of Lent and to deepen our understanding of its significance for our lives as disciples of Christ. We hope to see you there!
