2014 Lenten Services
Prior to our Wednesday Lenten services (March 12 to April 9) a light meal will be served at 6:00 p.m. in the dining room (see menu below) followed by the service at 7:00 p.m. in the Toney Chapel. (schedule)
This year's theme for our Lenten services is "The Folly of the Cross"
“For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” —1 Corinthians 1:18
We are accustomed to seeing the sign of the cross. Crosses are displayed on buildings and in buildings. We see them set in jewelry and in artwork. A cross is elevated high above Southport Presbyterian Church. But in Jesus' day the cross was a symbol of fear and oppression. For early Christians to uplift the symbol and message of the cross appeared to be foolishness. Where is the good news in a crucified Messiah? Where is the power in a God who dies? Yet the message of the cross is salvation. Christ crucified is God's wisdom. Jesus' death displays God's power. As we prepare to celebrate Easter, join us on Wednesday evenings as we explore the message of the cross with the Apostle Paul.
