Words matter, and someone’s last words are often more significant. We hang onto these words and look to discover what we can learn from them. Whether they’re the words of a leader, sports hero, author, or even family member, these final words can be life-altering. As we enter into the Lent season and approach Easter, who better to look at than Jesus himself. Jesus had seven final words he gave to us from the cross that provide profound insight into life. What can we learn from these final words? Over the next 7 weeks, let’s listen to Jesus and learn from him.
Join us Sundays at 9 & 11a! Check out more on our Sunday Gatherings.
