The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 5th with the first of six midweek films made especially for this time of prayerful preparation for The Easter Experience. If you've never seen any of the 20–minute presentations, be sure not to miss these truly dynamic midweek movies.
The service plan is easy. We will watch the film; then there will be time for questions and answers, followed by closing prayer. The episodes will be a journey that will deepen our faith in Christ, while adding strength to her relationships with one another in our parish family. Bring your friends to see the films. Bring the entire family to see the films. What you see and hear each night will bless you to be a blessing to others who may have never seen The Easter Experience.
Two years in the making, the films use dramatic storytelling and challenging teaching based on Scripture to bring the suffering and resurrection of Jesus to life. City on a hill from Louisville, KY behind the camera with Kyle Idleman as narrator, have given us an amazing production. As we see the story unfold, we need to ask ourselves this question: what if what happened then changes everything now? The result: The Easter Experience.
Episode 1 – March 5
My Life Has A Purpose
See Jesus and his disciples at the Last Supper teaching that life has purpose when we are serving the needs of others.
Episode 2 – March 12
My Life Can Change
In his darkest hour Jesus is betrayed by two disciples. We have a choice of life or death.
Episode 3 – March 19
My Pain Is Understood
The journey to the cross is a road of the trail, abuse, humiliation, loneliness, and agonizing pain. Jesus can help us in our battle with temptation.
Episode 4 – March 26
My Life Has A Plan
Imagine how Mary the mother of Jesus must've felt about the horrible crucifix patient of her firstborn son, the son of God. How would she reconcile what happened to Jesus?
Episode 5 – April 2
I Have The Promise Of Eternal Life
The heart of the gospel is the powerful message of the cross where Jesus died for our sins. As we see the way he related to the two thieves, where do we fit into the salvation plan?
Episode 6 – April 9
I Have Hope
Mary Magdalene's experience at the empty tomb was filled with hope the on the grave. It is clear that nothing can take away our hope and new life in the risen Christ, even now.
Easter is more than a holiday; it's a life–changing experience that is very real because Jesus died and rose from the dead.
God has a loving plan for all of his people. I hope you will come to see how it is finished.
The movies begin at 7:00 PM on Wednesday nights during the season of Lent.
See you in church.
Your pastor and friend,
