40 Days with Jesus & His Cross
A Congregation-Wide Spiritual Growth Opportunity
Sunday, Feb. 22nd - April 5th
The Cross is the center of God’s plan of salvation for us. The Cross is the motivating factor for Christians to follow more closely their Lord and Savior. During these 40 Days of Lent our hearts and minds & eyes will be focused on the Cross. We will see how the Cross is foreshadowed in the Old Testament. We will see how the Cross is portrayed in the life of Jesus. We will see Jesus teaching about the Cross. We will see how the Cross is lived out in the life of Paul, an early follower of Jesus. We will also see the Cross that we, as individuals, are called to bear. During Holy Week our eyes will be drawn to the Cross of Golgotha. And then in the days immediately following Easter, we will see the Victorious Cross. Our hope and prayer is that during these coming 40 days, the Suffering & Victory of Jesus will become more real in our lives, and the blessings that he bestows through them will be more fully experienced.

A Poem by Carol Wimmer
When I say, “I am a Christian,” I’m not shouting, “I’ve been saved!”
I’m whispering, “I get lost sometimes, that’s why I chose this way”.
When I say, “I am a Christian,” I don’t speak with human pride.
I’m confessing that I stumble – needing God to be my guide.
When I say, “I am a Christian,” I’m not trying to be strong.
I’m professing that I’m weak, and pray for strength to carry on.
When I say, “I am a Christian,” I’m not bragging of success.
I’m admitting that I’ve failed and cannot ever pay the debt.
When I say, “I am a Christian,” I don’t think I know it all,
I submit to my confusion, asking humbly to be taught.
When I say, “I am a Christian,” I’m not claiming to be perfect.
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I’m worth it.
When I say, “I am a Christian,” I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartache, which is why I seek God’s Name.
When I say, “I am a Christian,” I do not wish to judge,
I have no authority, I only know I’m loved.
