Week 7 of the Lenten Sermon Series, "At the Foot of the Cross" this Sunday
This Week at La Jolla Presbyterian Church
Easter Sunday - April 16th  
"Keeping the Faith"
Luke 23:55-24:12
Rev. Dr. Paul Cunningham
Easter Sunday with the La Jolla Brass

During this Lenten season we will take a look at people who literally were at the cross when Jesus was crucified. What did they see? What did they do? What did they experience? We want to spend some time reflecting on what we can learn at the cross. We hope you will join us this Lenten season as we consider some of the stories of the people who found themselves "at the foot of the cross."
