Looking back on the Old Testament, Paul said: “These are a shadow of the things that were coming” (Colossians 2:17 EHV). Our Lenten & Easter Sermon Series this year is entitled: Shadows Of The Savior. We will trace the shadows of Christ’s redemptive work for us through a series of Old Testament passages which point to His sufferings, death and resurrection. Plan to join us on this Lenten journey each week – starting this Wednesday (9:00 a.m. or 7:00 p.m.). This week: “Meeting God in the Garden” (Gen.2-3) (No Wednesday Lenten suppers this year. Easter Breakfast IS being planned).
