With All Your Heart Worship Series: REPENTING
Tradition compels us to think of Lent as a time of self-denial and intense introspection and contemplation. This season sets itself apart as a time of fasting from the luxurious and indulgent. A boisterous feast at God’s table is the last thing that we would expect to see embodied in the words of our lectionary Scripture for this week.

With All Your Heart Worship Series: PREPARING

Living Worship Series: BELIEVE IN ME
Jesus arrives among a group of disciples who are scared for their lives; they have every right to be. They saw their leader crucified and are concerned that they might be next. It is perfectly understandable for them to feel scared, anxious, and nervous—anything but peaceful.

- Psalm 150 (UMH 862)
- Revelations 1:4-8
- John 20:19-31
