A Lenten devotion by Minister for Nurture Mark Kjenstad
During World War II, Christian author C.S. Lewis delivered a series of informal radio addresses titled "The Case for Christianity." Through these talks he intended to bring hope to an embattled public. He wasn't the first, though, to present the compelling argument for the reasonableness of Christian faith. Two thousand years ago, the apostle Paul faced a skeptical crowd in Athens and reasoned with them. Our times are no less skeptical of the claims of Christ than people were 2,000 years ago, or 70 years ago. You know people who are skeptical of the claims of Christ. Maybe you're one of them. The book of Acts is God's answer. We’re glad you’ve joined us to find hope and confidence in the case for Christ.
A Lenten devotion by Pastor John Boggs
Pain is a reality of life. You know it. I know it. Everyone knows it. We might be very different, though, in how we respond to it. What do you do when you're feeling pain? This weekend, learn from the prophet Jeremiah. His was an exceptionally hard and tragic life. He's even called "The Weeping Prophet!" We’re glad you’re here with your brothers and sisters feeling pain to receive the same comfort, salvation, and the glory God gave Jeremiah.

A Lenten devotion by Vicar Joel Hopper
Nobility sounds British, as in dukes and duchesses or barons and baronesses. But in the Book of Acts noble means something else. The Apostle Paul and his missionary entourage entered a Greek city named Berea where they encountered people whom the author of Acts described as "noble-minded." Even before you know what that word means, you want it. It just sounds that good. May the Spirit inform us of its meaning and then bless our pursuit of being: noble-minded.
