Worship in Light of the Cross eCOURSE


This event is ongoing.

Now open for enrollment!

Many of the world's great cathedrals are built in the shape of the cross. When people enter to worship, they literally enter into the cross. Whenever we gather as a community of faith, we remember Jesus' death and resurrection and learn how to follow Jesus, even on the road to the cross.

In this six-week study for Lent, John Indermark invites us to worship through the cross. Indermark allows worship elements to guide us through our Lenten study:

  • Gathering: Forming Community
  • Invocation: Attending to the Holy
  • Confession: Honest to God
  • Proclamation: Gospel as Truth-Telling
  • Creed: Owning the Faith
  • Response: Stepping Out
  • Sacrament: Holy Week

Indermark includes scripture and reflections that directly address Good Friday and the cross. Each day closes with a suggestion for reflection, and the book includes a group guide for small-group study from Ash Wednesday through Easter Sunday.

The cost of this eCourse is $19 (inquire about group rates for groups of 5 or more), and the eCourse includes:

-A live webinar with author John Indermark (Monday, March 6 at 6:30pm Central time)

-Daily readings for each day of Lent (all essential content from Worship in Light of the Cross is included)

-Audio recordings of scripture

-A daily thought for each day via email

-A place for discussion with others enrolled in the course

This eCourse is open to individuals or groups. If your group would like a private classroom where you and your members have access to a closed discussion group, this can be arranged. For information or registration, contact Sharon Conley Cottingham at sconley@upperroom.org.


All essential content from Worship in Light of the Cross is included in our eCourse. If you would like a print or electronic copy of the book, you may order it at The Upper Room Bookstore.
