St. John’s Anglican Church
Lenten Lunch Series 2012
12 noon- 1:00 p.m.
(Five Encounters with Christ, as found in Mark’s Gospel)
The season of Lent prepares us to once again take hold of the meaning and power of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. But, it is not only His death and resurrection that save us, but also His peerless life and ministry. During five Fridays in Lent we will examine something of His incredible life through five ‘encounters’ that people had with Him. Thus, we will be reminded of what a glorious friend and Saviour we have in Christ.
