Community-wide Bible Study-Final Words From the Cross


Final Words From the Cross

Community-wide Bible Study
12 p.m. Wednesday beginning March 12
Brown Bag Lunch
Hosted by Le Mars Presbyterian/UCC Church

In life and in death, Jesus’ words were powerful and meaningful. Despite the effort and increased pain required for Jesus to speak as he hung on the cross, Jesus spoke seven “final words”—statements that have much to teach us about Jesus, his Father, and ourselves:

  • Father Forgive Them
  • Behold Your Son…Behold Your Mother
  • My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?
  • Today You Will Be with Me in Paradise
  • I Thirst
  • It Is Finished
  • Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit

This study explores these final words as seen and heard through the eyes and ears of those who stood near the cross.  Join your neighbors and experience Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross in a new way.

This community-wide study will be held for seven weeks beginning Wednesday, March 12 from 12-1.p.m. and will be lead by pastors from several Le Mars congregations.  Bring your lunch as we gather together at the Le Mars Presbyterian/UCC church.   The study is sponsored by the United Methodist Church of Le Mars, Rejoice Church, and Le Mars Presbyterian/UCC.
