Join us for a Lenten Soup Supper at 5:45 downstairs and a brief prayer service at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary.
The forty days of Lent are a time of prayer, fasting and self-examination in preparation for the celebration of the resurrection of the Lord at Easter.
The Lenten journey from the ashes of death to resurrected life begins on the first day of Lent, Ash Wednesday, which signifies a time to turn around, to change directions, to repent.
This first day of Lent reminds us that unless we are willing to die to our old selves, we cannot be raised to new life with Christ. The first step of this journey calls us to acknowledge and confront our mortality, individually and corporately. In many traditions, this is symbolized through the imposition of ashes — placing a cross on one’s forehead. During the imposition of ashes the words: “You are dust, and to dust you shall return” (Genesis 3:19) are repeated again and again. We are to remember that we are but temporary creatures, always on the edge of death.
Worship is every Sunday at 10:15 a.m. We hope that you join us as we praise God. Sunday School starts at 9:00 a.m.
