Easter Event Calendar

Woman in the Night Sermon Series

The Gospels chronicle Jesus’ travels with his disciples—primarily male companions—throughout the Galilee, into Jerusalem, and ultimately, to the cross. Yet, there were women that followed, too. Their stories are important to hear and worthy to be told. Alongside Dr. Brian Wren’s hymn text Woman in the Night the TUMC Family will grow in understanding of the scope of influence of Christ’s life and ministry throughout the season of Lent.

March 24 — Woman in the Night: The Gospel in The Law ~ Luke 7:36–50

March 31 — Woman in the Night: Sit then Speak ~ Luke 10:38–42

April 7 — Woman in the Night: Fellow Travelers ~ Luke 8:1–3

April 14 — Woman in the Night: Weeping Daughters ~ Luke 23:26–31
