Our Lenten journey begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017, but our online classroom is open now. Once you've enrolled, feel free to take a look around, to introduce yourself, and to begin early if you'd like.
We'll gather via a live webinar with author John Indermark on Monday, March 6 at 6:30pm Central Time. The webinar is free and open to anyone, but it requires another login. To find instructions for the webinar, follow this link. (A recorded version of the webinar will be available as soon as it's ready to share.)
If you are interested in a private classroom for your church or small group, please contact us at UReLearning@UpperRoom.org.
Many of the world's great cathedrals are built in the shape of the cross. When people enter to worship, they literally enter into the cross. Whenever we gather as a community of faith, we remember Jesus' death and resurrection and learn how to follow Jesus, even on the road to the cross.
In this six-week study for Lent, John Indermark invites us to worship through the cross. Indermark allows worship elements to guide us through our Lenten study:
Indermark offers scripture and reflections that directly address Good Friday and the cross. Each day closes with a suggestion for reflection, and the book includes a group guide for small-group study from Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday.
Our eCourse includes:
Register alone, and you'll be entered in a group with others around the world who are taking this eCourse together.
Join as a group of 5, 10, 15, or 20 and we'll open a private classroom for your group. For Questions about or to register for a private classroom, email us at email@example.com.
All essential content from Worship in Light of the Cross is included in our eCourse. If you would like a print or electronic copy of the book, you may order it at The Upper Room Bookstore.
