REFLECTION HOURS AT CG MIDTOWN
Beginning Monday, March 26, and through Thursday, March 29, the CG Midtown sanctuary will be open to all members and visitors from 9am to 3pm daily for quiet reflection and meditation on Jesus's sacrifice.
Six images depicting the passion story will be placed around the sanctuary, and devotional materials will be provided for youths and adults seeking the Holy Spirit's presence.
Chairs will be arranged around each image, and the lighting will be lowered to provide a space that is calm and inviting for contemplation.
As we prepare our hearts to celebrate our Savior's resurrection, we hope you will join us during this special time and invite the Spirit to reveal all that Jesus's sacrifice means and has made possible for you.
This Lent Devotional provides practical activities you can do during the 40 days. Our primary focus and sermon series during Lent will be on the life of Nehemiah. Nehemiah’s story reminds us of what happens when we allow God to move us from a place of comfort to radical trust in Him; when we seek God in prayer in order to discern His calling on our lives; and when we realize we can do amazing things and overcome improbable obstacles.
DAILY READING PLAN
Above is a daily read guide for to help you dig deeper into scripture during this season of Lent.
Every Sunday is a celebratory Psalm.
Monday-Saturday have Nehemiah and Matthew's Passion Narrative.
We will read through the book of Nehemiah 2x during the first five weeks.
Passion Week is strictly the crucifixion from Matthew, with the climax on Easter Sunday: Matthew 28.
