Read any Old Testament prophets lately? They certainly were the most important religious leaders among the people. As spokesmen for God, “This is what the Lord says,” is their repeated phrase. Sometimes that Word from God was one of warning and judgment. Often it was a word of hope and restoration. For the prophets, the ultimate hope was in the Messiah and the New Covenant He would bring. During this season of Lent, we focus on our theme: Repent & Return…a Prophetic Lent.
“Repentance is the admission of emptiness that receives all the good things that the Lord desires to shower upon us.”

Each week, we will hear the Word of the prophets and see how they point us to God’s ultimate salvation in Jesus. Visit the display in the Gathering Space beginning February 23/24 to learn more about worship, individual devotions, and more. We encourage you to participate in these spiritual growth opportunities.
