Supplement the Places of the Passion Lenten series with four services for Holy Week that continue the series format and theme.
The places where the passion of our Lord took place hold special meaning to Christians the world over. These places remind us that Jesus walked this earth and stood in locations we can still find today to carry out his mission of salvation. This was no sightseeing trip for our Savior. There was a serious reason he came to be at certain places and at particular times to suffer and die and rise again. He was fulfilling the will of his Father who desired that we be forgiven and given a place in heaven with him forever.
Kit contents: monolog sermons, .pdf and .rtf text files of all elements of the program, children’s message, music for the accompanist, suggested contemporary song list, sample bulletins with order of worship, PowerPoint documents of all services with text (with copyright release) for use on screens.
