Cross Words - The Sermons


In Holy Week, we joined together with Brookeborough Methodist Church for a special series of events called Cross Words. We listened in each evening to the words spoken by the Lord Jesus on the cross. Here are the sermons from each evening:

Cross Words: Forgiveness (Luke 23:34)

Cross Words: Comfort (John 19:26-27)

Cross Words: Assurance (Luke 23:43)

Cross Words: Cost (Matthew 27:46)

If you would like to watch The Cross video by Billy Graham from Good Friday, you can find it at this link.
