Welcome to our Web page for our 2014 Lent resources. This year’s Lenten Worship Service kit is entitled From Garden to Glory by Pastor Luke C. Werre. The kit and the sermons alone are available in print (kit, sermons) and as downloadable files (kit, sermons).


We hope this page proves useful to you as you plan your Lenten worship in 2014. Remember - Ash Wednesday is March 5, 2014!

Resources included in this kit take your congregation to nine stops on a tour of scriptural gardens—from Eden to Gethsemane to Christ’s garden of glory and finally to paradise. Texts from Genesis, the gospels, and Revelation show the promise in each garden and how God’s plan for our salvation is in each glorious location.


 This kit includes:

  • Sermon helps, including complete texts of the nine sermons
  • Resources for the nine services that include the following:
    • Notes and suggestions for using the orders of service
    • Sermon themes and texts (SEE SAMPLE)
    • Hymn and psalm suggestions
    • Psalm prayers
    • Scripture reading suggestions
    • Copy master for a midweek order of service
  • CD with electronic files of the resources
  • Sample of the 2014 Lent bulletin available from NPH


Remember copyright law! Pastors sharing pulpits during the Lent season must purchase the sermon series for each congregation where the sermons are used.
