Welcome to an Overview of UIM Lenten Easter Worship 2021

Based on: The Lord’’s Prayer and Revelation 2:10b:
“Be faithful unto death,and I will give you the crown of life.”

The Lord’s Prayer may be committed to memory quickly,
but it is slowly learnt by heart.
Frederick Denison Maurice

I used to think the Lord’s Prayer was a short prayer; but as I live longer, and see more of life, I begin to believe there is no such thing as getting through it. If a man, in praying that prayer, were to be stopped by every word until he had thoroughly prayed it, it would take him a lifetime.     
                                    Henry Ward Beecher

This UIM Lenten Easter Worship Series offers change through Christ who does not change (Hebrews 13:8), but who changes us through His forgiveness and the power of the Holy Spirit. Those who attend will travel from the Crown of Thorns to the Crown of Glory that together have the power to change the world.

The world is crying for change! Political unrest, a failing economy, natural disasters, a pandemic, and worse  have taken their toll on Christian faith and lives.  The sad state of affairs have turned too many people away from God rather than where the world needs to be - close to Him and the help and healing in His passion and promises. This UIM Lenten Easter Worship Series unveils the power Christ’s passion and God’s promises have to lead people to God and all that is good because God is good (Psalm 118:29).  Each service uplifts and strenghenes through prayer, specifically through the Lord’s Prayer, and offers Christ whose love and forgiveness change everyone and everything.


Week One: Our Father -

Teaches us the many names of God and how to relate to Him as a loving father who has made change possiblein us and for the world through Christ.

Week Two: Our Father in Heaven 

Helps us see an awesome God who lives and reigns in heaven with His Son and Spirit, and who keeps all of His promises that help to change us and others as we share them.

Week Three: Hallowed be Your nam

Week Six: Give us this day our daily brea

Takes us from our daily bread to our Bread of LIfe - Christ  who changes everything!.

Palm Sunday - And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors 

Uses a mixture of Palms, Praise, Passion, and Promise to lead worshipers from Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem to the cross.

Uses the forgiving power of Christ’s Body and Blood (Passion) to lead away from temptation and to sharing God’s promises.

Good Friday - But deliver us from evil:  

Revisits the evil and death from which Christ delivered us so evil cannot harm us.
