The Journey to Easter and Beyond
Lent is the time just before Easter that is meant to raise the awareness of our need for Jesus and grow in our relationship with Him. This Lent join us by watching The Chosen and get curious. We read about Jesus in the Bible, we study his teachings and believe that he was God who came and lived on earth and died to save us.
Sometimes, it’s hard to lift the stories of Jesus off the pages of the Bible. A series like The Chosen can awaken our imagination and help us get to know and love Jesus even more.
Beginning the week of February 21 you are invited to take part in The Chosen.
What is “The Chosen”?
The Chosen is an amazing, biblically-centered, quality video series that tracks the life of Jesus through the gospels. We will be using this free video resource – along with the biblical text – to dig into Jesus’ life and learn more about what he did while he was here on earth. If you are unfamiliar with this new series, you can watch the movie trailer posted on this page or on YouTube here.
How Can I Participate?
There are eight episodes in The Chosen series, and our plan is to watch one episode a week and then we encourage everyone to gather together in person or online with other individuals to discuss it.
Watch on the Big Screen
If you’d like to watch each episode on the BIG SCREEN, we will host two “watch parties” in the sanctuary every Wednesday at 1 pm and again at 6:30 pm. Episode 1 will be shown on February 24 and we will end with Episode 8 on April 21 (skipping March 31, the Wednesday of Holy Week). After each viewing, you’ll have the opportunity to gather in a small group lead by a facilitator in the sanctuary and discuss the episode.
Watch on Your Computer, Mobile Device, or TV
If you’d prefer to watch each episode on your own, you can watch on your computer using the links to each episode here, you can download The Chosen app to your mobile device and watch it there. Or even show it on your own television. Download TV instructions here.
Small groups meeting in homes or online will be available for those who choose to watch on their own. More information on specific groups (in person and online) is coming soon!
Would You Like to Host a Small Group?
A training and information session for small groups hosts will be offered at 9:45 am on Sunday Feb 7 and again on Feb 14, or by appointment with Pastor Jeff. Discussion guides are provided here on this webpage.
The Significance of This Event
We believe this will be a significant moment for our church and community, and we want to encourage you to begin inviting friends, coworkers and others into our groups during this time!
And pray with us! What might God do when we focus completely on the simple story of Jesus during this time of when so many are already watching their screens?!
The Chosen’s Statement of Faith
“Where do we stand on faith and scripture, and can you trust The Chosen?
As this show grows in popularity around the world, so do the questions and concerns, some legitimate, some not so much. But we have nothing to hide, and we want you to feel comfortable recommending the show to others.
Here we address some of the most common questions raised, including who’s involved and where we stand on biblical accuracy.” ~ Dallas Jenkins, Director
