New Sermon Series – Lent 2018
Join Mt. Olive for the season of Lent – 40 days of reflection leading up to Resurrection Sunday.
During Lent, we will have services on Wednesdays and Sundays. Each will have a unique sermon series – we hope you attend both, as the messages are very important!
Lenten Wednesday services
On Ash Wednesday, there will be two services, 12:00 noon and 6:30pm – both will have imposition of ashes and communion, but the 12:00 will be a bit more abbreviated service. All other Wednesdays will have only one service @ 6:30pm.
“Were You There?”
This sermon series for Wednesdays in Lent will place us into the lives of Christ, His disciples, and the people around Him, including Judas, Peter, the Roman soldiers, Pontius Pilate, and others. We will try to walk next to them and to understand them a little more—they are much more like us than we might think…
Week 1: (Ash Wednesday) “Were You There When He Was Betrayed?”
Week 2: “Were You There When He Was Denied?”
Week 3: “Were You There When He Was Accused?”
Week 4: “Were You There When He Was Condemned?”
Week 5: “Were You There When He Was Crowned With Thorns?”
Week 6: “Were You There When He Was Crucified?”
Lenten Sunday services
Often we make a mess of our lives and wonder if there is any redemption. Through this sermon series we will learn to see our mess through the eyes of Christ to find redemption and restoration. Only when we reflect and meditate through our own brokenness can we focus on the cross as the place where we truly surrender control, leave our mess, and experience restoration.
Join us as we begin this message series:
Week 1: (Feb 18) “This Is A Real Mess”
Week 2: (Feb 25) “Who Left This Mess?”
Week 3: (Mar 4) “Bless This Mess”
Week 4: (Mar 11) “No Messing Around”
Week 5: (Mar 18) “Address This Mess”
Week 6: (Mar 25 – Palm Sunday) “The Message in the Mess”
