“New Year, New You”— A new worship series for the new year at Reformation

The new year is typically a time that we stop and resolve to become a better version of ourselves. We get back to the gym, we add more vegetables to the plate, or we plan to worship and study the Bible more often. Starting in January 2020, our new worship series, “New Year, New You” will focus on the Gospel lessons we hear during the season of Epiphany. But instead of focusing only on ourselves and the inadequacies we inevitably find in ourselves, we are going to look at Jesus to see how he makes us completely new. He gives us a new identity and even empowers us to live a different way. And – thankfully! – we will also see that our success doesn’t depend on our resolve to be better, but on Jesus’ resolve to live a perfect life in our place.

Join us at Reformation in 2020 and see how God has made you new, through Christ! You are…empowered, redeemed, illuminated, blessed, set free, reconciled, and confident… through Jesus!

The Jesus We Want Need: A Worship Series for Lent at Reformation

Many of the people in Jesus’ time were very excited by him, at least initially. But sadly, over time, many ended up disappointed with him. The reason? They wanted the Messiah to be very different than Jesus was. And it still happens today—we can find ourselves wishing that the central figure of our faith isn’t like Jesus. We want a conquering hero who arrives with his angel armies. But what we find instead is a servant who is willing to suffer. This is what the Apostle Paul called “the foolishness of the cross.” But before you walk away sad, we invite you to join us each Sunday this Lent* as we see how the Bible makes it clear that the Jesus we get is far greater than the version of Jesus we might want to design for ourselves. He meets all our greatest needs—from our need for forgiveness, to our need for eternal life, to our need for peace in the midst of the stuff we have to deal with in life. Join us each Sunday this Lent for The Jesus We Want Need.

You know what you want. Do you know what you need?

The Son of God Goes Forth to War – Lent 2020 at Reformation

What pictures come to your mind when you hear the name “Jesus”? Many will picture Jesus in robes, holding a shepherd's staff and guiding his sheep. Others will immediately see him shining like the sun and crowned with glory, sitting on a throne in heaven. But how often do we call to mind the picture of Jesus as the brave and often-opposed soldier the Word tells us he is? This Lenten season, we will take a thoughtful look at Christ’s role as a warrior by reflecting on the picture Scripture shows us of the Son of God who goes forth to war—to battle against sin and death for us, to fight and win for us! Our weekly Wednesday worship during Lent will help us focus on the tremendous courage, humility, and power of our Savior – and his ultimate victory!

Join us this year for Lent, a special period of 40 days during which God’s people cleanse their hearts through repentance. Lent is a time during which God’s people prepare to celebrate the festival of Easter with joy. Lent is a time during which God renews his people’s zeal as we reflect on the depth of Christ’s love for us in willingly suffering and dying to redeem us from sin’s curse.

Join us at Reformation each Wednesday this Lent as we expound and apply God’s Word to our lives today. We will also have soup suppers beforehand in the gym, beginning at 5:30pm. For more information, visit www.refsd.org or find us on Facebook:
