March thru April 9 Worship Series

"Turn Around"

 

The season before Easter is a time of taking inventory of our lives. Themes of repentance are in preparation to renew our dedication to the faith. To repent means literally to “Turn Around”– to find new direction.


This concept of change and the  change-making actions of Jesus will guide our spiritual journey this season and we will wrestle with our fear of change, the inevitability of change, the difficulty in changing and the life-giving new lease on life and call to service that change can bring.
