SHADOWS OF THE SAVIOR
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. We invite you to join us on this Lenten journey each week.
