Throughout Lent, we're having Wednesday evening worship services. We'll be focusing during this time on the words of Jesus spoken from the cross. The word that we considered this week is the word of forgiveness. Even during his tremendous suffering, Jesus prayed for his persecutors, asking that they might be forgiven. This is a great encouragement to us because, if Jesus desired their forgiveness, it also assures us that he desires ours as well. It also serves as an example for us to seek the forgiveness of all people, even those who hate us and cause us to suffer. You can hear this message at

In our third message of the series, "Our Father Abraham" we learn that the father of the faithful was a man of peace. In Genesis 13 we see that he was willing to give his nephew the first choice of land, and the best land, for the sake of peace. God also desires for us, as his children, to live in peace with one another. But are we, like Abraham, willing to sacrifice things of value, things of importance, to maintain peace?

Yesterday, we continued our series on Abraham with a message based on Genesis 12:10-20. In this message we looked at an act of great selfishness on the part of Abraham and how we're called, as believers, to generosity, selflessness, and humility. We also saw how this sin committed by Abraham was rooted in a lack of trust in the promises of God and how the same thing is often true of us. You can hear it at

This week, we started an eight week series that will continue on Sunday's up until Holy Week. The title of this series is "Our Father Abraham." In it, we'll look at Abraham, the father of the faithful, and see what we can learn from him to apply to our own walk of faith.

This week's message is based on Genesis 12:1-9. In it we see that Abraham, because of his great faith, was a man of sacrifice. And as the faithful of God, we too must be men and women of sacrifice. It can be heard at
