A new worship series for Lent–Easter—coming December, 2023!

In this new series, we are focusing on the life and faith of one of Jesus’ most famous disciples. In Peter, we see a person who is both steadfast and unsteady, a dear friend and a betrayer, a follower and a wanderer. In Peter, we often see ourselves. By following Peter’s journey, we watch the story of Jesus unfold through the eyes of a very normal human trying to figure it all out just like us.

As we were studying Peter’s faith journey, the words and tune of “Come Thou Fount” came to mind. It’s as if Peter himself wrote this song. And so, for each step in Peter’s journey, we have selected a phrase from this hymn. As we follow Peter’s story, we will sing our way through Lent, binding our wandering hearts to God. 

This Lent, we will look for ourselves in the stepping stones of Peter’s story. We will reflect on the stages of our own faith journeys as well as who and what has shaped us along the way. As we wander, let us tune our hearts to sing God’s grace. May we rest in streams of mercy, never ceasing.

A note about the scriptures in this series:
For this series, we are departing from the Revised Common Lectionary and have selected focal texts that highlight the significant moments in Peter’s journey—from becoming a disciple to meeting the risen Christ. We have paired these narratives with psalms for Lent from the RCL (Year B). The focal scriptures for Holy week are still traditional Lenten selections, and the entire series is crafted with overarching Lenten themes in mind.
