SEASONS OF THE CHURCH YEAR
LENT: SECOND SUNDAY in LENT
The Church Year is divided into Festivals beginning with Christmas, which includes 4 Sundays in Advent and Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. This is followed by Epiphany Season which begins with the Epiphany of Our Lord and ends 9 Sundays later with the Transfiguration of Our Lord. The Time of Easter follows beginning with Lent, followed by Holy Week starting with Palm Sunday and concludes with Good Friday. Easter Season begins with the Resurrection of Our Lord and includes the Ascension of Our Lord and ends with PENTECOST.
The first PENTECOST took place on the 50th day after Easter Sunday when the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit, enabling them to testify boldly to spread the Good News of the Gospel.
This Sunday we mark the SECOND SUNDAY in LENT.

THE SECOND SUNDAY in LENT
The Sermon Text is from:
Mark 8: 31-38
31 He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again. 32 He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.
33 But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples, he rebuked Peter. “Get behind me, Satan!” he said. “You do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”
34 Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 35 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it. 36 What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? 37 Or what can anyone give in exchange for his soul? 38 If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.”
Sermon Theme: CROSS BEARING
i. Christ took up His Cross
ii. I have a Cross to Bear
iii. What encourages me in my Cross Bearing
