Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

April 1, 2021 message: “The Garden at Night: Watch and Pray”

Jesus offers grace to his disciples even as he warns them of betrayal. Jesus takes them to pray even as they struggle to stay awake. Jesus displays agape love even as he prays and recognizes his humanity in going to the cross to bring salvation. We gather with him in honest confession as we “sit with our sin” and ask for forgiveness.”

The Holy Thursday message is part of the Lent and Easter series, “The Grace of Les Mis√©rables.” Today’s focus is on the garden at night. Pastor Mary’s message is based on Mark 14: 12-26, “The Last Supper,” and Mark 14: 32-41, “Gethsemane.” The service is available in its entirety on FaceBook and YouTube.
