Ash WednesdayFebruary 14, 2018 – 6:30pm

Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent.  On this day we are reminded that we are dust and to dust we shall return. Yet, Jesus promises us new life in him.

Ash Wednesday has traditionally been observed as a day of personal reflection and confession before God.  We bare our soul open to him and confess our sins, and he is faithful and forgives us for the sake of Jesus.

A Note about Ashes

The Imposition of Ashes will be offered in Beautiful Savior’s service. The Imposition of Ashes has been a tradition of the Christian Church throughout history.  Ashes are a sign of mourning in many cultures.  On Ash Wednesday we mourn that our sins caused the death of our Lord.  For many, receiving ashes, either on the forehead or on their hand, serves as a reminder to them of the love of Jesus that led him to pour out his blood to rescue them from their sins.

Beautiful Savior offers the Imposition of Ashes for those who find this tradition beneficial for the focus of their meditation and worship. Those who do not desire the ashes are encouraged to use this portion of our service for personal reflection.

Christmas 2017

Tags : 

For millennia this world has been locked in a cosmic battle waged between the forces of evil and the forces of good; the servants of light and the servants of darkness.

No, this is not the opening line to the next Marvel movie release. This is a description of the world which you inhabit.  You also play a role in this cosmic battle. How is the war going?

Does darkness prevail? The news cycle barely breaks from the last outburst of violence and another tragedy of bomb, blade, or bullet breaks our hearts. Or perhaps our hearts are shattered enough by the darkness that has invaded your own life – marriage crumbles, addictions grow, relationships tear apart.

Yes, the battle between good and evil seems to wage with ever greater force, but one event changed the course of that battle for all time. A baby was born. Laid to rest in a manger. Not just any baby, this baby was the light of the world.  He came into the world on the first Christmas, and we’ve celebrated this arrival every year since. The light of Jesus Christ shines into the darkness of our world and the darkness will not overcome it. Light shall reign.

This Christmas join us to discover the hope, peace, and confidence Jesus brings and to know that Light Shall Reign forever.

No Eye Has Seen Series

Tags : 

As you look at your life, what do you see? Do you see any reason for joy?  Any reason for a sense of purpose?  Any reason for comfort?

That may depend on where you look.  Contemporary life and events seem to make it hard to see such vital things.  Perhaps we begin to think that no one sees them in their life. Maybe no eye has seen purpose, or joy, or comfort in a long time.

Yet, if you look in the right place, your eyes will see what they otherwise wouldn’t.  They will see no other God but the very one who has created you with incredible purpose; who has formed you with his very own hands to lead a fulfilled life of joy and comfort.

This God, the all-powerful deity ruling over heaven and earth, did something no eye had ever seen until he did it.  He sent his only Son to live and die for you. He sent his only Son to take the weakness and suffering and mistakes of your life into his own, so that you could enjoy freedom from them.  He sent his only Son to forgive you.  Prepare to see him in all his glory this Christmas. Prepare as you join us leading up to Christmas.

To see this God is to know that there is no other.  No eye has seen any other God, any other comfort, and any other joy than what is found in him.  Let’s seen him.

Series runs on Sundays, December 3 – December 17, at 9:30am

The Kingdom

Tags : 

Its origins are mysterious. It starts insignificantly small, but spread and flourish to become majestic. It is treasure worth everything you own, yet it is scattered recklessly by its creator. It establishes peace unknown anywhere else. It is The Kingdom and you are invited. 

It is Christ’s kingdom of triumph and victory for you. Please join us as we hear Jesus describe his kingdom with unique illustrations that invite us to take our place in it.

Greatness Worship Series

Tags : 

Greatness

Greatness

Greatness is a lofty ideal for which many strive. Only the lazy or unmotivated are content with mediocrity. What allows someone to achieve greatness? Often attempts at greatness begin with grand intentions but fall short upon completion. Trauma, conflict, and everyday struggles interfere with personal delivery of greatness. On the pages of God’s Holy Word, Romans 8 leaps forth to describe the greatness of our God and his great promises. When God stands on our side, we know his greatness and the greatness of his gracious promises – all guaranteed through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

This worship series begins with an outdoor worship service at Creek Ridge County Park on Sunday, June 25th at 10:00am. All are invited to the picnic meal to follow after the worship service. Then we will play games and enjoy the atmosphere of the park.

The series continues for three weeks following, with services at 9:30am.

June 25 – Great Peace (Outdoor at 10:00am)

July 2 – Great Power

July 9 – Great Future

July 16 – Great Promises

It’s the End of the World and I Feel…Fine

Worship Series Begins October 30, 2016.

Terrorism. Violence. Murder. Chaos. It seems like it’s all falling apart.  It seems like the end of the world is upon us. Whenever we talk about the end of the world, it’s always in dark and ominous terms. God’s people live in the light of a resurrected Savior. For them, there are only better tomorrows ahead. The end of this world will usher in the life that our hearts have always longed for. In this

Whenever we talk about the end of the world, it’s always in dark and ominous terms. God’s people live in the light of a resurrected Savior. For them, there are only better tomorrows ahead. The end of this world will usher in the life that our hearts have always longed for. In this

In this series we will find joy and peace in the promises of God that he will uphold us and carry us, that he will be our sunshine through the last dark days of this world and that, in the end, a true paradise awaits us.

“When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near” (Luke 21:28).
