The Lenten season begins on Ash Wednesday, February 22. In these 40 days leading up to Easter as the days lengthen, the weather warms, and we look for signs of spring, we observe a season of reflection, repentance, and renewal. In contrast to the lighting of candles during Advent, each Sunday during Lent we will extinguish a candle as we Journey to Jerusalem for Christ’s triumphal entry, death, and resurrection.
Throughout Lent, we encourage you to engage in a spiritual disciple such as a daily prayer time, reading a chapter a day of scripture, or serving others.
Ash Wednesday will be observed with a brief meditative service on February 22 at 12:00 noon. There will not be a meal. We will read and reflect on several scripture verses, pray for renewal, and conclude with the imposition of ashes. This will take place in the Fellowship Hall and is open to all church members and friends, Pantry volunteers and neighbors.
Palm Sunday Annual Palm procession to the park with our neighbor churches will take place on April 2 at 9:30am.
Maundy Thursday Soup Supper and Communion in the Dining Hall on April 6 at 5:30pm. This will be an informal service around the table as we remember the last supper Jesus had with his disciples before his death.
Good Friday Stations of the Cross on Troost on April 7. Details will be published in the ENews and bulletin.
Easter Sunday Worship on April 9 at 10:30am.
