Love Leads the Way Series

Holy Thursday, or Maundy Thursday, marks the last conversation Jesus has with his disciples, a conversation grounded in what he calls a new commandment (mandatum in Latin, hence our English word “Maundy”). He illustrates and underscores the new commandment by washing their feet: “Love one another as I have loved you.”

IN THE NAME OF JESUS Series: Testimony to the Resurrection

Today we begin the first of two mini-series that will take us through the great fifty days of Easter. In the first series, “In the Name of Jesus,” we will be focusing on what it means to claim the power of the name of Jesus as his followers. We will journey with the first disciples through the early chapters in the book of Acts, following them as they plant the very first Christian church and identifying how claiming the name of Jesus was the source of their strength, healing power and salvation.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS Series: Faith that Makes Us Strong

The good news is that on the other side of death is resurrection. We may participate in things that kill Jesus, but we have an opportunity for redemption. For in Christ, God offers us mercy and grace, no matter what the magnitude of our sin. It is important to ask ourselves,  “How am I living into Peter’s invitation to repentance, confession, and pardon?”
