Every year, as we prepare to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection from the dead on Easter Sunday, we prepare our hearts and minds by observing the season of “Lent.” Typically, this season is a time of somber reflection on the suffering and death of Jesus, in view of which Easter can truly be a time to rejoice. Without the Cross, the Empty Tomb has no meaning!
As always, our Lenten Season begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1, with two communion services at 12:00 & 6:30 pm. Before each service, you can come early to receive the “imposition of ashes,” as a somber reminder of the fact that “from dust you come and to dust you shall return.” NEW THIS YEAR! Pastor Greiner will be available in the church lobby at drop off (7:45-8:15) and pick up (2:00-3:30) for parents and students who would like to receive the imposition of ashes.
For each of the following weeks until Palm Sunday, we will also offer midweek worship services at 12:00 & 6:30 pm.
A light lunch will be hosted by the Senior Ministry on Wednesday, March 8 in the Lobby area immediately following the 12:00 pm service. This will be provided by our lunch service and will be available for a freewill offering.
Cookies and coffee will be available after all other Lenten services.
This weekend will commemorate the fateful day that Jesus entered into Jerusalem, where He had long anticipated His own arrest, trial, and crucifixion. A day of mixed emotions – both sorrow and anticipation – it is also a great day for worship!
On the last night Jesus would spend with His disciples, He gave them a powerful gift – The Lord’s Supper – which we still are privileged to receive today!
A traditional Good Friday service, 12:00 pm service will focus on Jesus’ suffering and death. At 6:30 pm, we will observe a “tenebrae” service of darkness, including a wide variety of special music and scripture reading.
