Last Words: Words of Life from the Cross
A Lenten Worship Series

Lent is a season of reflection, intentionality and preparation, and during the six Sundays of Lent, St. Stephen’s will be reflecting and preparing for Easter through the Sunday worship series, “Last Words: Words of Life from the Cross.”

In the four gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, Jesus speaks seven last words or phrases from the cross. As we would expect, Jesus’ words are powerful words of life and provide important lessons for every follower of Jesus who desires to take up her or his cross and follow Jesus.

Join worship every Sunday, as St. Stephen’s unpacks the depth of these vital messages from Jesus.
