THIS WEEK AT LAKELAND COMMUNITY

upcoming sermons and speakers

March 17: Pastor Garrett preaching. “Prayer of the Persistent Widow” | It is hard to continue praying when the world around us is falling apart and we can’t see God. In this message, Jesus encourages us to persevere in prayer using a story that is so surprising we forget it is supposed to be funny.  

March 24: Pastor Garrett preaching. “Prayers of the Pharisee and Tax Collector” | “Christians are arrogant”. This is among the top reasons why people avoid church. Is this true? Does following Jesus make Christians better than other people? What did Jesus himself say about this?

March 31: Pastor Dan preaching. “Desert Wisdom”: Flee! Silence! Rest/Pray!" | These were the three admonitions Arsenius told the Cenobium as the call to contemplative prayer. This call is so very needy today.

April 7: Pastor Dan preaching. "Grief, Death, Spiritual Death" | Grief is the application. Death is the subject. Our culture doesn’t believe in death. But Christianity does - and it has an answer: resurrection. How dead was Jesus? All dead, not just mostly dead. What can be gain from embracing death? Life.
