Series: Looking to Jesus

Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, is the first step to receiving new life in him (Heb. 12:2). As you prepare your heart for Easter, there is no better way than to look to Jesus.

In this 31-day series, follow Jesus’s journey to the cross through all four Gospels, and look to him to learn what it means to follow Jesus as his disciple.

From the triumphal entry into Jerusalem to the empty tomb on Easter morning, this series traces the path that Jesus and his disciples walked. These events and teaching from Jesus show us the heart of Christian faith, and guide our own paths. By walking alongside Jesus on his journey to the cross, we will see more clearly what Jesus has done for us and what it looks like to follow him.

Practical and accessible, this series will help you look to Jesus again in Lent and Easter.
