Insight For Life Women’s Bible Study
God had promised Abraham, an old man with no children, that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars. Abraham chose to believe God, embarking on a transforming, lifelong journey of faith and obedience. God has made promises to us as well. During this 9-week study of Abraham’s life, you'll learn to be a person who listens to, obeys and trusts the God who always keeps his promises.

Jesus' Seven Last Words from the Cross
On Good Friday the Liturgy focuses our attention upon His death.
Appropriately, the ceremonial is stark, direct, and powerful. Its meaning is unmistakable.
Meditations on the Seven Words from the Cross are offered. Our preachers this year are Phillip Cary [“Father, forgive them”], Christie Purifoy [“Today, with me, in paradise,”], Marcia Wilkinson [“Mother, behold thy son”], Christie Purifoy [“My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”], Dan Garrison Edwards [“I thirst”], Phil Ellsworth [“It is finished”], and Chris Hall [“Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.”].
In the western church the forty days of Lent extend from Ash Wednesday through Holy Saturday, omitting Sundays. The last three days of Lent are the sacred Triduum of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. Today Lent has reacquired its significance as the final preparation of adult candidates for baptism. Joining with them, all Christians are invited “to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word”
