Sermon Focus … Sermon Focus … “I Am He” based on John 18:3-9
3 So Judas came to the garden, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and the Pharisees. They were carrying torches, lanterns and weapons. 4 Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, “Who is it you want?” 5 “Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “I am he,” Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.) 6 When Jesus said, “I am he,” they drew back and fell to the ground. 7 Again he asked them, “Who is it you want?”
“Jesus of Nazareth,” they said. 8 Jesus answered, “I told you that I am he. If you are looking for me, then let these men go.” 9 This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: “I have not lost one of those you gave me.

Sermon Text ... Hebrews 4:14-16
Hebrews 4:14 New International Version (NIV)
Jesus the Great High Priest
14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven,[a]
Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.
15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses,
but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.
16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive
mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

The Season of Lent
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lent, the Christian's 40-day spiritual journey to
Jesus' cross and tomb to await the proclamation of Easter. The name Lent comes from the
Anglo-Saxon word lengten, which means "spring"-- the time of the year when the days
noticeably lengthen. The season of Lent finds its roots in the ancient Church's
pre-Easter fast and intensified instruction for converts to Christianity who were baptized
at the Easter Eve vigil. In the fourth century, this pre-Easter time of preparation was
observed by all Christians, not just new converts anticipating their baptism. The season
eventually began on the Wednesday that occured six and a half weeks before Easter. This
resulted in a Laten season of 40 days, a number that reflected Jesus' 40 days of fasting and
temptation at the start of his ministry (Matthew 4:1-11). Sundays are technically excluded
from the 40-day Lenten season. since each Sunday is considered a "little Easter" celebration.

Prayer at the Close of Day

March 29, 2017

“Prayer at the Close of Day” (also known by its Latin title, “Compline”) is the last of the seven daily prayer services that developed in the medieval Christian church. These daily services, called the “Daily Office,” were most commonly used in monasteries and schools. Several of the services from the Daily Office are enjoying renewed use in the twenty-first century church. May Jesus bless us as we use portions of “Prayer at the Close of Day” for our evening devotion.

“Prayer at the Close of Day” (also known by its Latin title, “Compline”) is the last of the seven daily prayer services that developed in the medieval Christian church. These daily services, called the “Daily Office,” were most commonly used in monasteries and schools. Several of the services from the Daily Office are enjoying renewed use in the twenty-first century church. Tonight’s service sets the texts of this historic service to modern music. The setting of “Prayer at the Close of Day” we use comes from Christian Worship: New Service Settings. The music is by Dale Witte and was first published in 2002.
