We're glad that you've come to our web Site. Hope you can also join us physically to worship among us this special Sunday morning. We hope that you will discover Christ's coming to you by His Spirit through what is sung, said and seen.
Please fill in a welcome slip so that we can keep in touch with you whether you are visiting us or you want to know more about our community.
The Lord’s Prayer is the church’s basic prayer guide. With six simple imperatives, it covers those areas of life that Jesus considered most important for human flourishing. New Testament scholar, N.T. Wright has written, “…the Lord’s prayer is not so much a command as an invitation: an invitation to share in the prayer-life of Jesus himself… (The) Lord’s prayer becomes an invitation to share in the divine life itself. It becomes one of the high roads into the central mystery of Christian salvation and Christian experience…” (N.T. Wright, The Lord’s Prayer as a Paradigm of Christian Prayer.)
Through this Lenten series, we will saturate ourselves in the prayer life of Jesus, learning to call out to God according to HIS priorities for life.
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” 4 But he answered, “It is written,
“‘Man shall not live by bread alone,
but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and set him on the pinnacle of the temple 6 and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written,
“‘He will command his angels concerning you,’
“‘On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.’”
7 Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’” 8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written,
“‘You shall worship the Lord your God
and him only shall you serve.’”
11 Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to him.
