On This Rock

 The Lenten season begins with Ash Wednesday on March 5th. This year, during Lent, we will be exploring our journey of discipleship by tracing one of the 12 Disciple’s experience with Jesus. In Matthew 16:18 Jesus says to Peter: “I tell you that you are Peter (which means rock), and on this rock I will build my church . . .”. This verse came in response to Peter’s confession of Christ: “You are the Christ the son of the living God” (Mt. 16:16) 


If you’ve studied Peter’s life, you know his rock-like faith developed through a series of ups and downs as he followed Jesus. We current day disciples have much to learn through Peter’s example. And on each of the Lenten Sundays I will be preaching from a text that involves an encounter Peter has with Jesus. I’m calling this series of messages “On This Rock”. In encourage you to follow the schedule below in your own preparation for worship during Lent. You will note that we will continue our focus on Peter through Holy Week and Easter, and that the series will culminate the Sunday after Easter (April 27) with the Chancel Choir’s presentation of the Pepper Choplin musical “Upon This Rock: The Passion, The Question, The Call”.
